Any Suggestions for Burn Marks on my Nose After IPL?
I am of Asian origin. I have had 4 successful treatments for pigmentation on my nose. On my last visit, I received what I believe is a contact burn on the bridge of my nose from where the protective goggles sat.
This area was not targeted. There was no indication at the time of treatment, but about an hour later, I had redness, stinging and a "grey area" much like an iron burn. It has now been 5 days. The area is still red, and slightly hurts. My main concern is hyperpigmentation after all is healed. Any suggestions?
