Can you give me a little more details on the glisodin? How much does it cost, how much of it you took daily, how many times, etc?

Hey, I get my glisodin from vitacost.com and it is the 500mg which is really 2 pills one in the morning and one at night. It cost around 20.00. Well worth it. There are some studies that it protects the skin from actual sun damage and has the ability to stimulate the bodies own healing mechanism. I have my own little theory why rosacea is so hard to control. Imagine a pitcher who damages his rotator cuff. If he keeps pitching he will keep doing more damage to the shoulder and is the reason he has to immobilize it to get better. Well, with rosacea; once we damage are blood vessels for whatever the reason, we don't have the ability to immobilize are facial blood vessels and nerves because flushing is a normal resonse and the damage just keeps getting worse. The trick is to find a supplement that can heal and avoid as many triggers as you can live without to break the inflamatory cycle and heal. I feel this supplement is a good part to that theory. If the inflamatory cycle can't be broken bbl, or maybe some anti-inflamatory drug that works for the individual are need also to innitiate the process. This is why i feel some people have a bad reaction to ipl. they artificially pre-flush pissing off the blood vessels and than zap the machine at a high level leaving the machine with inability to decipher the damaged vessels and thus only magnifying the inflamatory process. good luck

Oh yea, and on another note. If you get the bbl treatment wait until 2 weeks after the last treatment allowing the damaged blood vessels to die off and drink a good amount of green tea since it is a vegf inhibitor and theoretically will stop the vessels from coming back. I can't rule this out as part of my success since I used it 3 weeks after my last treatment.
If you go with drinking the green tea make sure you hold it in your mouth for a period of time, believe it or not; because the body absorbs the chemical compunds into the blood stream alot easier and more efficiently. good luck and I hope I have helped.

well done with your recovery flyboy. I'm sure I'm being really thick but what is bbl?

Phlika, BBL is an the new advanced ipl device from sciton. The machine has a more precise spectrum which means the energy doesn't scatter and to what I have read is much more precise. You can get more info on the internet. good luck

Great news - curious as to which cholestrol medication?
I have suspected that my cholesterol medication might be the cause of my flushing but haven't stopped taking it yet. What medication were you taking?

flushing has almost nothing to do with my rosacea
Flushing is not at the heart of my rosacea. I can't remember the last time I flushed yet I constantly have palpules and red blotchy areas all over my cheeks, nose, and forehead. The only thing that makes me flush is alcohol after eating and quick cold to hot temperature changes. I wish it was the case for me because if everything cleared up from not flushing I would definitely be free of this rosacea by now.
