Treatment experience poor. I went to see a doctor about removing some fine lines on my forehead and lower eyelid area.

While I was on the treatment table he recommended I do my entire face otherwise I would have to go through life with two different colours on my face. Big mistake! My entire face is ruined.

The pain was severe. I was told downtime 1 week. Not so overall downtime 5 months.

I had the fraxel repair procedure done 12 months ago. I am still trying to find a solution to fix my post inflammatory hyperpigmentation - hydroquinone, kojic acid and triluma does not work. My skin is very hypersensitive and turns red as soon as I touch it. Furthermore i have a pink veil across the centre of my face and broken capillaries all over my cheek areas.

Can someone please explain to me what is going on with my skin? I have a meditteranean background, but milky white skin.
