Burns from Laser Hair Removal

I have had my first hair removal session almost 2...

I have had my first hair removal session almost 2 weeks ago in Italy ( centro evolution roma ) using the diode lightsheer . I am skin type III with little bit tan with dark hair , I saw the doctor set the frequency to 35 for my therapy ( she didn't do the patch test before the session , nor did she told me that my tan could result in skin burnts) . Within 24 hours blisters & burns had begun to form and were very uncomfortable . I am so worried that i have ruined my skin forever :(( . do you think that I will have permanent scarring and hyper-pigmentation from the treatment? Do you have any suggestions to help prevent permanent effects? Before my session I was under antibiotics for about 10 days , could it be the reason why I've got burns & if so why the doctor didn't warn me about this !!! please advise me what should I use know to heel better & most importantly don't get discoloration in this area :(((( the funny part is that I went back to the dr that did it and they said it was fine, but i know that can't be normal...

I know this was a long time ago Belladonnaroma, but this is NOT normal, that I have ever seen! I am a clinical Esthetician & have done Laser training (although I am not offering laser currently) The doctor/tech should have asked all those questions BEFORE starting the session!! In fact they should have done a patch test & warned you about some of these things...In my Spa when we offered it, we were VERY diligent about making sure safety was #1 concern. Clients were informed when BOOKING their appointments. No tanning for at least 2 weeks, no medications( unless discussed) , especially antibiotics. I hope your skin is better. I have a suggestion for an AMAZING healing product for all skin conditions, especially pigmentation. Feel free to connect with me privately at **email removed - pls use private messaging system** if you would like to know more. Would love to know how you are doing ? take care Tazeem Jamal PMDT, LE

Hi, there is no problem in the fluence as such, these marks yielded due to either wrong pulse duration or the careless approach of your doctor,. We are doing the same fluence in type 4 skin individuals

hello, You should have a patch Test and consultation where they ask about any antibiotics taken in last 30 days. I have got the same laser hair removal in my beauty salon an never had any problems with my clients. Consultation is very important.*********removed link to website***********. In my opinion everything should go away from your legs, you must use some good cream to help it. I can recommend you some cream: La Roche Posay with B5 You can get it in boots.Hope this will help.

Welcome and thank you for posting your review, sorry you are so worried that you may have burns and damage, I suggest asking a question to our Doctors on the site and see what they have to say. Did your doctor suggest any after care to help with the burns and healing?
