Telangiectasias

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I got Cynergy laser on my red dots on my face, today. It was a green laser that felt like a needle sting, if you can imagine that. I wouldn't say it was painful but it didn't feel pleasant. I have a really bad one on my nose, and it already appears better, but it will be 2 weeks for a noticable change. The Dr. said today it will take at least 2 more treatments.

 

I'll post something again when I start seeing changes.

I hope it works!

Hi Jennifer,

 

I hope you remembered to take before, midway, and after pictures! It will be interesting to see how well it works, and how long it lasts for you. Please keep us posted.


Warm Hugs,

I do have before photos. I'll share them after I get the after shots.

 

Craig...be sure to let me know how your laser goes. Do you know details about the laser?

 

I really can't tell I had it done today. It's not even sore or red.

Well, it doesn't look great yet but hopefully I will see changes soon. I have to wait 8 weeks for the next treatment because my Dr. is having emergency back surgery...just my luck...LOL.

Thanks!

I'm cracking myself up....if you click on my name you will get a lovely and HUGE viewing of my telangiectasias. This is an old picture...and it is out of focus, but you'll get the drift. The prominent ones are obvious, then there are several that you can barely see in the photo, but in reality they are very noticable.

I'll have after photos in a few months.

Hi Jen,

 

I am very proud of the fact you went through with it......it's you life and your emotional wellbeing that is in play here. Now I have a dumb question.....only because Gareth's face looks like yours does with only 2 or 3 large 'spots' at a time. I assumed they were teenage zits that never come to a whitehead....what's the difference? Do yours stay permanently whereas his eventually go down and go away?

 

Take care, Everyone.

Margaret

Margaret,

I don't know the answer to your question, and thank you for understanding. So many of my friends have said not to worry about them that beauty comes from within...and I certainly agree but if I am going to be sick, I don't really want to look it. It is also easy for someone to say when they don't have them. Back to the dots, I have had them appear worse at any given time...but they have never gone away completely. If you push on them they blanch. Mine do not resemble acne to me at all, except in photos it does look like zits. Does Gareth have them anywhere else on his body? I have them everywhere but they are only in clusters on my face.

I wish I had a better photo to post. I literally have them every half inch on my face and then some...but the clusters are really all you can see in the photo. In my rheumatologist notes, he describes them as "prominent Raynaud's telangiectasias without skin thickening". Maybe not that I've been taking Procardia for a year they won't get so bad?

Let me know about Gareth.

Jen
