About 18 months ago I started to break out in pimples everywhere. I was put on birth control pills to make my face clearer. I noticed many broken capillaries on my face after taken birth control pills for only three months. So I stoped taking them and my face broke out more. The dermatologist said I had a slight case of rosacea,I also have hyperpigmentation. and said that ipl treatments would help. I started ipl treatment 5 months ago. I was thrilled with the results at first,because I thought that my "photodamage" was clearing up. My last treatment was a laser genesis about a month and a half ago.
I asked for my "before and after pictures" You can instantly notice that my cheeks are deflated. I used to have fat pads on my cheeks, which made my appearance better. My face now looks flat. The lady that did the lasers said "I lost weight" There is no way I could lose that much weight. But the worst part is all the new wrinkles that appear daily on my face. I have orange peel tecture skin. My skin doesnt heal. It looks like my pores have fine lines that connect all of them. The lady burned my upper lip and it looks like I have heavy smoker lines above my lips.I had no wrinkles before I went for laser treatments.
PLEASE SAVE YOUR FACES AND SAY NO TO LASER TREAMENTS. I WISH I WOULD HAVE. It is so depressing. I am thrity year old, but have the skin of someone in their 60's. I thought acne was bad, but at least I could cover it up. Now I hate leaving the house. I hate looking in the mirror. Make-up only makes me look worse. Can anyone help?
