I received the Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Molecular Repair Treatment
($125 in the TIA shop
) approximately 2 months ago and immediately began to use it each night, before using my Baby Quasar
($402 in the TIA shop). For daytime, I have been using Dermaxime Rejuvenating Day Cream, Serum and Toner. In fact, I purchased the Dermaxime
line after reading the review in TIA. Of specific interest to me is that one of the main ingredients is horse chestnut
, which I understand is helpful in reducing rosacea.
Within the first week of using Osmotics Blue Copper (which I used on my nose and cheek area) in conjunction with the BQ, I really did see a significant difference.
The kind of rosacea I have (and, I should clarify by saying that I have never really been officially diagnosed with it) is an overall redness with some broken capillaries around my nose and in the cheek area. I do not have the acne or bump breakouts. This regime reduced overall redness, but I did not see a significant difference with the broken capillaries. Although, it may be useful in preventing new ones.
I have battled this redness problem for a very long time and have not found any satisfaction with the products I have used. In fact, I had approximately six IPL treatments
seven years ago and was not satisfied with the results. However, I am impressed enough to continue using this regime of Dermaxime (for day use) and Osmotics Blue Copper, followed up by the BQ and that's quite an endorsement.
I just have to add one more bit of info: I traveled out of town for two weeks during this time and did not bring my BQ, so only used the Osmotics Blue Copper and the Dermaxime and did notice the redness was returning, albeit not to the degree of redness prior to using this regime.
