I had a Pearl Fractional Laser treatment on my face over 3 weeks ago and my skin is very discolored and streeked, where the laser was used. I am having a hard time covering up these brown patches with mineral make up and am concerned about how long this will be the case. I had even been prescribed Hydrocortisone cream, but with little benefit (after 2 weeks). At this point, I would not have done it had I known this, but am still trying to be optimistic.
Could this be due to the physician having taken off the "guard" from the Pearl fractional laser machine during my proceedure, as it was making a noise that was eliminated when the guard was removed.
