I wanted to remove a large sun spot from my face and decided to get rid of all my small freckles as well. But my doctor did not inform me that I would have a bunch of red spots all over my face as a side effect of the laser and that they will last 7-10 days. Now I'm super worried I will have...

"So...you're over 35, Right?" Houston, TX

Yag destroyed my face. I really wouldn't recommend this laser. I went in to get rid of melasma, and left with uneven skin texture, scars, way worse hyperpigmentation, and micro holes. I'm not sure what went wrong. I do know that on day 5 of healing my face got super itchy, burned, and was quite... READ MORE

My Face Was "Meh" and This Made It Beautiful

I'd been doing microneedling every month or so 5-6 times but hadn't really seen much improvement in my skin texture or really even enlarged pores due to acne.
