After my skin peeled I was shocked to find I have horrible acne left over on 90% of my face.I had mild to moderate acne before( milia and some occational pustules) I'm licensed to do esthetics and wanted to get this tx before opening my practice to have beautiful skin so I would look professional....
I'm going to a dermatologist on mon they think I possibly might have developed a staph infection which can look like pimples,the pimples are itchy and don't feel like normal pimples....they don't have a head to them....the dr who did this is in another state I flew out there to get the tx because he was supposidly the best...after talking to him on the phone he says he thinks its acne not staph and that I should go on accutane...
I wish I had never gotten this PDT tx,....also wanted to add I got a PDT tx one month before this one with the Blu u and 7 hours incubation and did not get this reaction...the second tx that caused me to get this horrible acne was a 6 hour incubation with the Omnilux revive (red light)......I even took a workshop in Levulan PDT and was so all about it but after this happening...
I would never recomend it to anyone dont do it!!!!!!Its frightening!!!!
