I was burned by an RN performing a V-beam laser around my lips. And not only did I have the burn to deal with, but I also ended up with "splash-effect" (term used by a burn specialist I saw) which basically means the laser took off (burned) around my face. Worst experience of my life. Thought I was safe by going to a Kaiser Permanente cosmetics center... NOT. Lasers/IPL aren't safe. If you've experienced problems or are looking for further information, I'm a member of a support group that has really helped.
