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

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