Second Time Around- and Not So Good This Time - Edmonton, BC

Had this procedure done before at the same doctors...

Had this procedure done before at the same doctors office- it went well and my skin looked 75% better within 10 days. I had hyper-pigmentation and was told it would take 3 or 4 procedures to remove all of it. Went in for my second procedure two years later- as here in Canada this is a very expensive procedure. This time I was told- while in the chair and sedated the doctor was 'going deeper' the pain was horrific and I screamed No- I am only here for the hyper-pigment......Now two weeks later, my face looks like a crack whore. I am blotchy, red, hyper-pigmented with orange textured skin ( I had smooth skin before) my eyes are creepy with bags (did not have this before) One eye looks like a large circle scar is around it- and my face and eyes hurt! I have called my doctor -who I truly hope will stand up to her work- for an appointment to engage damage control and begin some sort of recovery. Will let you know

Wow, I'm sorry to hear you have experienced all of this.  Are things getting any better?  Did you ever meet with the Doctor?  I hope you've made progress in your healing!  Thanks for sharing your story.


Been a patient since I was 16, I am now 50! So hope she stands behind her work.
