  1. No, its not flat. It looks like a pimple, only its NOT a pimple. Its more like a round lump. Its circle shaped, about 4 of them. Little tiny bumps!! Why would a popped pimple leave a keloid?? I can see discoloration...but a scar?? This is BS man. These things look like pimples and feel like pimples, but they arent pimples. And they are ANNOYING me!!
  2. About 3 months ago, I had a HUGE pimple on my nose. I was STUPID, and I picked at it (only because I Had a date in 2 days and tried to "speed up the process" of healing). I popped it, then kind of peeled it. Sorry to sound gross. But anyway, afterwards it left hyperpigmentation. Well, its been 3 months. The hyperpigmentation seems to be fading, with the help of some dermatologist cream. BUT...I notice I have about 3 or 4 "mini-bumps" in the area where the huge pimple was! They are a purpleish/re
  3. They keep denying anything is wrong. They keep saying its impossible for thier laser to leave discoloration. Are they insane? I guess they can smell a lawsuit. I dont think I signed anything either warning me there would be a chance of burning. What should I do?
  4. Hi thanks for replying!! About a month after this nightmare, I tried Hydroquoine 2% and it really burned my skin, so I had to stop using it. I hope I didnt do further damage. I have very pale skin. My skin is starting to feel swollen where the laser went over. PLEASE REPLY!!
  5. THANKS AGAIN! The elidel I think was more for the ORIGINAL red spot problem I had, not for the laser burns. Although the new derm said it would help with that too. Its done well to fade the redness, but the brownish skin is still there. Also the Hydroquoine left the area badly red so the elidel was for that too. The derm said the elidel was mostly to "mask the hyperpigmentation" until it heals in a few months on its own. The new derm said the brownish spot would "probably fade" and to stay
  6. Hi, thanks again for replying. I actually did try the MURAD 2% Hydroquinnone for about 3 days and the area turned BEET RED so I had to stop using it. I have extremely sensitive skin so I guess the product must have irritated it??? I wish I could show you a picture but I dont have a camera. BUT here is a picture somewhat similar to the type of burn I have. My skin is browned/blackened. The burned area on my face is similar to the spot on the bottom part of where her pinky connects to her other
  7. Hi thanks so much for replying. I'm not sure, it's called "laser genesis". I dont know what setting it was on, in fact I didnt even know there were different settings! I jumped into this after they convinced me it was safe. I was never told of possible discoloration, even if it is "temporary" which I am not buying. I feel like a burn victim. I had a mere case of blemish hyperpigmentation, and now the laser left an area of darkened skin thats about 5 times larger than my original blemish! I
  8. I got laser genesis done on my face. Its non-ablative but it burned a lot. The area is now darkened and has been dark for about 2 months. Is this likely permanent or will it go away? I really need answers on this and NOONE is replying. I'm desperate and crying every night. If you read this PLEASE answer. Do you think the laser technician messed up? Or is this normal? My derm says its inflamation but its been too long now! Especially for "non ablative" and I read its not supposed to leave these
  9. My derm performed laser genesis on me 2 months ago and the area is still dark. He tells me its just inflammation and that it will fade but I DONT TRUST HIM NOW because I was never warned of this. The area is darkened and looks dull under a light. It felt uncomfortable during the procedure, when I have read its supposed to feel relaxing. I am scared the laser was too hot and I might be permanently scarred. What do I do, I'm scared. PLEASE HELP!
  10. What do you mean by charred and dark? If I had to guess, I'd say it's probably post-inflamation/hyperpigmentation from the laser, but I don't exactly get what you mean by "dark and charred". I had 8 fraxel laser treatments done and also several Erbium YAG laser treatments done on the highest settings, and the noticable inflamation/redness from the the YAG laser lasted for several months(it's a c02 laser)... only about a week for the fraxel treatments. I don't know in your case though, because
  11. Its been 2 months since I had a laser genesis treatment and the area looks charred and dark STILL. This was supposed to be a SAFE procedure or so I was lead to believe. I had it done to treat a pink/white circle spot on my face. Not only did it NOT help the pink spot (made it more red) it left the surrounding area of skin DARKENED and it has NOT gone away! She gave me inflammation cream but it has been useless so far. WHAT DO I DO? I'm so MAD and upset. Is this permanent? PLEASE RESPOND I asked

  13. I had 2 sessions of laser genesis done and was supposed to have 1 more but I decided to stop, because the skin area around the hyperpigmentation where the laser went started turning darkish brown. I am liking the improvement of texture but I hate the color changes so far. I am white, and very fair skinned. I am wondering if this is common, and if it is, how long before the dark brown patch where they lasered me settles down and my normal skin color returns? Is the dark brown permanent? Or is i
  14. I had a bad post acne blemish and the doctor said he could rid it by injecting me with this steroid needle. He said it'd be gone in a week but instead of the red area being gone, it is now a WHITE AREA lighter than the surrounding skin! I have read conflicting things about this, I think its hypopigmentation. Is this type of hypopigmentation permanent, or temporary? I want to know because if it is permanent, I plan to sue him. Thanks PLEASE REPLY!!!!
