So do you mean too many ipls can cause them to become ineffective? Dr crouch said he usually only needs 2 or 3 treatments in the first year to bring things under control before annual treatments are enough to keep things in check. Has that been your experience? Do you use any medications in conjunction. With the treatment?

No, I do not take any medication, I believe what Dr C says is very sensible, some clinics try and sell courses of up to 10
treatments, this is too much, Dr C tailors the treatment plan to the minimum needed to get a positive result.
It is difficult to understand exactly what is happening, in my case I have being having IPL for 9 years.
I started with a course of several treatments (not Dr C), and my rosacea had been very bad, it improved a lot, but never
completely went away.
Since then I have had single treatments if I felt I was getting more flareups, or more visible vessels etc.
Does the condition become more resistant to the IPL is difficult to tell!
So my experiences seem to tally with what Dr C is telling you, of course rosacea is a condition which does change and go
through different phases over the years, but IPL does help most people who have it, but results do vary from person to
