Has anyone experienced an allergic reaction to LHR?
I had my feet, cheeks and upper lip done. I have coarse dark hair and medium-olive skin. They used a Vantage Cool Glide (the numbers I saw on the machine were 60 and 20). I think the 20 was the pulse duration?
It did hurt ALOT and I was quite red afterwards, but that went away. I was really OK until a few hours later that night when I swelled, broke out in hives and welts in those areas I had done. I did not have the numbing cream beforehand.
Went to doc today and they gave me an antibiotic (I have a fever), steroid shot, oral steroids, and an antihist. I do not have senstive allergy prone skin. HELP! What could have gone wrong?
