Anyone had Photofacial Photoderm for Rosacea?

I have consulted with a nurse on having Photoderm IPL for Rosacea and am very scared. This is my face we are talking about and I worry about negative side effects.
I would like to hear of others who tried it. How many treatments did you have? What was your condition?
I am supposed to go in next Wed. but I am holding out because I am taking a drug that causes photosensitivity which is a generac dieuretic pill for High Blood Pressure. The nurse said the drug would not interfere, but I think she is wrong since it causes photosensitivity I don't think it would be a good idea to have the IPL Photoderm done at this time.
Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

My husband has had three treatments for rosacea using photoderm and has had good results. It takes a few treatments but we can definitely see the great results.
