Got an IPL treatment on my cheek to remove an angioma but the doc burnt my skin. What can I do? (Photo)

I went to see another doctor who told me to wait because the burn isn't healed yet. The burn is 3 months old and left a reddish indented mark. What could I do afterwards? In the meantime can I use a cream or serum? What about dermarolling?

See a Cosmetic Dermatologist for Wound Care

I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist who is an expert in lasers who can give you the right wound and skin care to prevent long term skin color changes and scarring. Best, Dr. Emer
