has happened after my second laser treatment on my face. they are using the lightsheer and i told the tech that the first time burned me a little bit, so she turned down the joules this time to i think 25. i was ok for the first 2 or 3 weeks or so (except i didnt think i was having as good a result as after the first treatment) but in the last two weeks i have a huge red, itchy, dry, scaly patch on my left cheek/chin area and also two patches on my chin and another patch on my right cheek. it is intensely itchy and red and nothing i use (moisturizers, face wash) is helping it to go away. it almost feels like a bad sunburn and it keeps peeling but will NOT GO AWAY. i have extremely sensitive skin so i only have been using moisturizers for sensitive skin and even just plain vaseline which normally works great on my dry skin without irritation. EVERYTHING, including plain ole vaseling is irritating it. i also tried using a triple antibiotic ointment for a few days, and that also flared it up. i am embarrassed at work because it is so dry and flaking off that you can see it whether i wear make up or not.
i have no idea if a burn can show up several weeks later but i am sure that whatever this is it is related to getting my second laser treatment. i have not called the place that did my treatment (i am very angry and afraid i’ll say something i’ll regret) and i dont have health insurance and cannot afford to go to a dermatologist. i am not trying to say bad things about laser, but if you have very sensitive skin, be very careful. i am also posting this because i need to know if anyone has ever seen anything like this. even private message me if you want to. i need help anywhere i can find it.
