To get rid of some unwanted hair round my chin and neck,three days ago I had laser therapy and after that all these round burnings which resembles bruises appeared on my face,has not changed ever since.I am using zinc oxide and hydrocortisone on them all the time.They are so dark that even cosmetics can't conseal them.
I had recently taken roaccutane capsules for acnes and it had resulted a perfect,shiny,spotless skin.Still I am takin it twice per week.I did not remind my laser therapist this very fact though.Could it have anything to do with laser burns?

Mind you that I have had laser therapy with the second dermatologist many years ago and it was always safe.So,I perfectly trusted her.She suggested she was using high energy laser to achieve better results!Alas,not a very good one though!

do these burnings hopefully fade away?do they remain some spots?how can I reduces the chances of getting brown spots?how about Roaccutane?should I blame myself for not having told my laser therapist about them?Since I am still using Roaccutane twice a week,could it help the burnings to fade away more quickly?

I think all in all laser is safe,but the degree and the type does matter.
