My plastic surgeon recommended a Dermatologist...

My plastic surgeon recommended a Dermatologist because he no longer had access to a Yag Laser. I had a consult to discuss brown spots on my body and made my appointment.

The Dermatologist went from head to toe with the Yag Laser. Leaving the office, my body was on fire, but calmed down less than 30 min. It has now been 6 mths and the scarring is much WORSE than the brown spots ever were. The Dr. told me legs take much longer to heal but these are scars, there is no more healing.

I went back expressing my unhappy results and he said "Let's wait a couple more months and see what it looks like then". No Way am I going back - I don't trust him to make it right. I am 58 and had great smooth looking skin minus a few dark spots now I won't wear shorts in public. Nothing I ever read prepared me for the possibility of looking worse than when I started.


Referred by surgeon.
