Wanted This for Syringiomas Under my Eyes, Did Nothing for Syringiomas and Pigmented my Face!

I had an erbium laser done under my eyes and it...

I had an erbium laser done under my eyes and it worked fairly well but my bumps returned quickly (had that done twice) and I was told that the fractional C02 laser was the best treatment for this skin problem, so I went to a nearby place that offered it. They did my whole face, which honestly I didn't ask for and wasn't expecting, I only wanted the treatment under my eyes, but I thought if it resurfaced my skin, that would be an added bonus. There was a good deal of pain during the procedure (but tolerable), after it looked like and felt like I had a sunburn. After it healed I was left with splotchy spots of brown pigmentation that I didn't have before the procedure and it did absolutely nothing at all for my eyes! It cost a fortune by comparison to what I had paid for the erbium laser ($200), so I was extremely disappointed to say the least! The doctor did offer to do under my eyes again in 3 months at no cost, but since there was no benefit the first time, I do not want to do it again. I would not recommend the procedure and wish I hadn't done it because now I have two problems instead of one!
