Anti Flushing Protocol Controls Angiogenesis Between IPL Treatments

Written by on August 25, 2005 in flushing with 1 Comment
In a recent post to Rosacea Support Dr. Soldo mentioned an anti-flushing protocol that he and Dr. Johnson are working on. This protocol is being developed for in between IPL treatments, where flushing may lead to new blood vessel growth (angiogenesis). Here is an extract ;

A good antiflushing protocal might include some or even all of the following:

  1. Pure Aloe Vera Gel kept in the refrigerator
  2. Zebeta (Bisoprolol) 2.5 to 5 mg at bedtime
  3. Hand held 660nm LED light 42-84 light array
  4. Microdose of Clonidine, ie .025mg at time of a severe flush but only once a day. There must not be a history of heart, kidney or liver disease and the blood pressure should not be too high or too low.
  5. Sun block at all time when outdoors and re-apply often
  6. Doxycycline 20mg twice a day

All medications should always be approved by a medical doctor and monitored regularly

A Followup Posting that mentions calendula gel ;

Following the Photofacial we cool the face with cold towels and/or ice packs then apply cold Califlora which is primarily Calendula Gel and can be used in place of the cold pure Aloe Vera Gel that we recommended. It is made by Boericke and Tafel but can be found also in many health food stores. It is very soothing and tolerated by nearly all patients nicely.
