Photoderm IPL Vbeam for Rosacea in Australia

Photoderm IPL Vbeam for Rosacea in Australia

This page contains contact information for all of the Australian Photoderm IPL machine owners. These laser clinics have different Photoderm machines: Epilight, Multilight, Vasculight, Quantum and Energist Ultra VPL.

It is important to find an experienced practitioner when seeking IPL or photoderm treatment for Rosacea. I have no information about how experienced these laser clinics are, so buyer beware: do your research.

You will find a mixture of practitioners, from dermatologists, skin specialists, to those who offer permanent hair removal, laser hair removal, to wrinkle reduction to varicose vein removal, to beauty salons, to plastic surgery, skin rejuvenation and even liposuction. The quest for rosacea sufferers is to find someone with a genuine interest in treating flushing, blushing and redness. I should also warn that you that some of these clinics don’t even know how to spell rosacea !

Request for your help:

As an encouragement to your fellow Australian Rosacea Sufferers, how about leaving a note below. Many people ask for information on good IPL doctors, but only a few leave helpful comments for others. So far there are a mere 12 treatment reports to share with you

Dr. Min Fee Lai, Sydney

  • … Dr MF Lai has an excellent understanding of rosacea
  • … excellent result – will need top up treatments over time
  • … I seem less red generally and to flush a bit less

Dr Beckhurst, Perth

  • … I highly recommend Dr Beckhurst
  • … I can recommend him to anyone in perth, WA
  • … While my case wasn’t that severe I thoroughly recommend Dr. Beckhurst to anyone in WA

Dr. Harvey Sacks, Perth

  • … the third treatment seems to have reduced the redness noticeably and cleared many papules

Dr. Chris Leat, Queensland (Surfers Paradise)

  • … I have had two treatments so far, and am undecided on the results

Dr. Michael Szalay, Brisbane (Springhill)

  • … on my worst day, I would say my face is at about 85-90% better than it was prior to photoderm.
  • … now, most people don’t even know I have rosacea

Peter Martin, Hobart, Tasmania.

  • … He was understanding in both a personal way and in relation to his medical knowledge. I had to have treatments every 3 months but this is not a reflection of his abilities but the severity of my rosacea … He got me (a male) from having to wear embarrassing, troublesome and exacerbating makeup to being make up free. He is highly recommended

Dr. Adam Sheridan, Adelaide (Glenelg).

  • … after discussing preventative measures, and settling the ‘inflammatory component’ of my acne rosacea with a short burst of antibiotic tablets and Rozex cream, he treated the background redness and telangiectases with a course of IPL therapy.

Dr. Bekhor, Laser Associates, Melbourne.

  • … I’ve had two v-beams over the last 6 Months and the intensity of my flushing is so much milder. It’s gone from bright red/purple to light red and importantly it hurts so much less than it did.

Dr. Bryan Mendelson’s Rooms, Melbourne.

  • … However one treatment with the Lumenis One with a very helpful and knowledgeable technician Christopher has made a significant dent in my flushing.

Dr. Van Park, Drummoyne, Sydney.

  • … I came across some studies done on V-Beam laser technology where the wavelength was specifically tuned to target blood vessels at 595nm. I found a place in Drummoyne, Sydney who had in their posession a V-Beam laser so i scheduled some appointments … Anyway, I would recommend the V-Beam as a more efficient alternative to IPL treatments.

    Can I order some finacea from you OTC?

  2. David Pascoe says:

    Mary, you could try one of the online Australian pharmacies. I can’t recommend one myself, but google will be able to find some for you to investigate.

  3. yopi says:

    do you have dermacare or jennssen product for acne?

  4. Jane Trewella says:

    Hi. I am still undecided between IPL and V-beam. I see Greg Goodman in South Yarra. I have had a couple of conservative V-beam treatments but I have not noticed much difference. I am too afraid to let him do too much as I find the after-effects really traumatic. It is so isolating to be stuck at home for days not being able to go out and having no contact with anyone because of my flushed red face. If I am like that with a moderate treatment, what would it be like if it was full on? I really need support and guidance. Dr Goodman says the V-beam is his first choice for facial redness, but can IPL offer good results with minimal down time? He has only one IPL which he mainly uses for pigmentation. It is hard to know what to do, especially when the cost needs to be factored into it. Thanks.

  5. Wendy says:

    Hi, I am fairly new in Perth and a rosacea sufferer for almost 9 years. I need to have IPL treatment done, but don’t know who I can trust. Made an appointment with Dermedica cosmetic medical centre with Dr.Joanna Teh. Could anyone let me know if they’ve been there? Any comments will be much appreciated, as I have already spending a lot of money on places, that do not know anything about rosacea and the treatment of it.
