Horrible Results or I Should Say No Results Except Red Spots from my Laser Resurfacing - Costa Rica, CR

i went to a board certified dermatologist who was highlt recommended. I asked many questions before leaving for CR. I was told that I needed to stay for one week after my deep laser resurfacing as there would be quite a mess on my face. I had almost no obvious results from the procedure except for more red markes that are on my face!!!

The dermatologist finally answered my questions...

The dermatologist finally answered my questions (sort of). He said that I would continue to see improvements over the next few months and that I might need additional treatments. What a laugh...I not only see no improvements...just more red spots on my face along with the original spots that are still there. A deep laser resurfacing is what I had at a cost of $1,350.00, and I had none of the 'after' bleeding, oozing and peeling that I was told to expect. Thumbs down to Dr. Tabush

No, there has been no improvement from the deep...

No, there has been no improvement from the deep laser resurfacing that was done in early February. The "new" red spots are still there and the old ones as well. It certainly was not worth the expense. As I mentioned before, I was told that there would be lots of open wounds, oozing, etc. and would need to stay for one week before going home. I never had any of these symptoms and could have gone home a couple of days after the resurfacing. Valborg

There has been no improvement nor do I expect any after so many months have passed. As I mentioned before, there are more red spots on my face than I had before the treatment.

Sorry to hear you ended up with more red spots than you had to begin with.  Hopefully they fade over the next few months.  Keep us posted if you see any changes or decide to try something different, it really helps our Community Members who are going through the same thing.  Thanks for sharing your story with us.



 My procedure was not worth the cost $1,350.00 was a complete waste. I went to see Dr. Tabush as he was given a very good rating. I wanted all of the red spots on my face removed. The doctor suggested Fraxel laser resurfacing. There has been no improvement in my skin other than more red spots from the laser. I must say those spots are beginning to fade; however, none of the original discolorations are gone. The treatment was definitely not worth it.

It's been almost one year since I went to Costa Rica for laser resurfacing...for me, it was not worth it. There is no improvement from my last post. This will be my last update...if there was going to be any improvement, it would have shown by now. Sorry, but I don't have photos.

e-mail from dr. tabush, costa rica

my question is: after almost 2 years after my laser treatment with Dr. Tabush, he writes me via email telling me that I ruined his reputation. Where was Dr. Tabush when I attempted with 3 emails, after my procedure, letting him know that I had absolutely no results...only more red spots. Dr Tabush never replied to any of those emails...that is when I posted the negative comments. Now, after all of this time, he writes asking for photos!!! No way, Jose...he never responded when I asked him for comments about my poor results. I wrote to him informing him that one unhappy patient would not ruin his reputation...his response was "wishing me bad karma". How in the world did Dr. Tabush get my email address??????
