Not So Sure About Fotofacial

I had a fotofacial done by a medical doctor on Thursday. Today is Saturday and my face looks horrible right now. I have a medium complexion. Most reviews about IPL's tell you there is no down time and most can return to work. That is not true in all cases. I have reddish/brown spots and scabs all over my face and my chin is burned. Hopefully all this will slough off as I have been reading in 5-10 days and will not cause hyperpigmentation or darker spots. I have a micordermabrasion scheduled in 2 weeks. I have been treating my face with lots of expensive sunscreen moisturizers and putting zinc oxide, Vitamin E and avocado oil on my chin. Hope this information has helped.
I think my provider knows what she's doing and has a lot of experience, but every skin type/reaction is different. It should be discussed and explained to each patient.
