Photofacial Caused Small Holes in my Face

After photofacial I have discovered small holes in different areas of my face, some in line. Why have they appeared? Are they permanent? Is there anything I should do? Please help.

I am not aware of photofacials/IPL treatments to ever cause what your are describing.  I would recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist for an evaluation.

I have never seen this occur.  I am not sure how an IPL can cause such a mark. Thank you for your question and good luck with everything.
