On October 3, 2008, I went to a dermatology center to have my broken capillaries zapped. I have had 200+ eradicated over the past several years by an IPL.
This was a different location and the PA apparently had the settings too high and gave me 1st and 2nd degree burns, from which, two months later I am still recovering. The stripes created by the PA are still not completely faded and I have two scars and blistered-looking skin on my nose and chin.
Every effort by the center's owner/dermatologist to help heal this mess has failed. I am hoping over time the burns and scars will eventually heal. I recommend that only a skilled a dermatologist be considered for this treatment and be very afraid of PA's.
