ND YAg laser complication
I am sorry about the problem. I am not sure what NG Yag lasers was used.
Some have probes intended for deep facial surgery.
- Is your nose cartilage still soft and mushy? Consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons web site lists us by area.
- If the softness of your nose is gone, it was probably swelling.
- If the redness is the big problem now, it's usually temporary. Go back to the laser doctor for his/her advice.
- Didn't see a doctor when you were treated? Find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist with an ND YAG to assess and treat you.
Hope this helps.
