I went to a skin clinic with these dispy girls there and I got 2 treatments:


Microdermabrasion & Softlaser.


Before we started the women treating me suddently without saying anything started squeezing a VERY old acne scar-- there was nothing there except a mark! There was only a mark but for some reason she was applying lots of pressure, to the point where it felt like she was putting thick blunt needles into my skin. I dont know what she was trying to do and she gave me no countdown or anything.


I got the microdermabrasiona and softlaser and my skin was a bit sensitive after that but it was OK.


I woke up this morning and there is a MASSIVE RED/almost blue bruise like swelling near where this women trying squeezing this scar? WHAT THE HELL DO I DO?  This red mark is covering almost half of the right side of my face!


I dont even want to leave the house. I paid good money for this and it does the complete OPPOSITE. what can I do?


I understand that what is done, is done, but what can I do to reduce the swelling? Why did she try to squeeze this scar that had almost faded? Will this have caused any permanent damage? 


Please advise me.

1) call them immeadiately and voice your displeasure, and try and stop by today if you can---  and push for a full refund, you'll likely get something (particularly if there are other patients in the waiting room!)


2) time is needed, I used vitamin k cream after laser treatments, they say it helps with bruising, not sure as I never did one side with and one side without, but hey it can't hurt

Ouch! you should complain to them, that is not good. I doubt it will cause any permanent damage, i had a huge bruise on my face recently and putting metal spoons in the freezer for a few minutes (not for too long) then gently moving the spoon across the bruise really helped, sounds crazy but i read it somewhere and it worked for me :) good luck

I agree with everyone else about complaining. Arnica, bromelain, and pineapple are great for reducing bruising.
