Fraxel Caused Me Melasma - La Jolla, CA

i got fraxel plus the alexandrite laser done 6 years ago for minor scarring and it gave me melasma that has never gone away. when i went in to tell the doctor about it he tried to say i had it before i started the fraxel treatment which is b.s. i never had melasma. my skin is ruined and i have so much sadness and anger around this still. everytime i look in the mirror i am reminded of the skin i used to have (which was beautiful except for a few minor scars) and the skin i have now which is blotchy and hyperpigmented:(
