Twenty four hours ago, I had Ng:Yag laser treatment only on the brown spots on my face (all over) and my skin looks HORRIBLE. I look like I have the measles, but the good news is that I'm not in pain or swollen. Am I going to be scarred? What can I do to make sure I don't scar? She only gave me a topical cream to apply twice a day. She is an MD and has been working with lasers for a long time - although she did burn my friend.

Red spots are traditionally what occurs after Yag laser
You look like you just had the Yag procedure. You have red marks everywhere that you had the Yag. It should take about a week for this to heal with a topical emollient. Please follow-up with your dermatologist with any questions and concerns.
