Fraxel Gave Me Long Term Damage - Indianapolis, IN

I had fraxel laser done in November 2008 to address some shallow scarring on my face. My settings were 35mj/8density/8passes. I did a lot of research and asked my doctor about the negative side effects and I was assured this was a safe procedure. She also told me that it would help me with my melasma so I decided to do it. I have been living in regret since that day. I have been left with bad/rough skin texture (as if my pores doubled in size), and I have terrible discoloration on my face, it looks as if my face is 5 shades darker than my neck. I also now have severely dry and dehydrated skin and weird bumps everywhere. The scarring is now more noticeable than it was before. I am devastated by the results of this laser, I wish I didn’t have it done.
