I had a laser genesis procedure done last week. I had a bad reaction. Looked like a red, raised, bumpy rash everywhere on my face. The rash came after 24 hours. It got worse for two days. Some turned into pimples. I was told it could be folliculitus.

The pros - I really felt my skin looked five years younger after. Tighter. Smoother.

Cons - terrible, ugly, bumpy rash all over my face. I don't think this is common. A lot of my friends did this procedure and had NO problems.

Is anyone ever allergic to laser? It seems like an allergic reaction. I have had the same reaction when I have done laser hair removal. However, with the hair removal, it can be avoided if a very low heat is used. I want to do the procedure again -because truth is, after the terrible rash cleared up 5 days later, my skin looked amazing. Any thoughts? Can I pretreat? Benadryl did not seem to help.
