Laser burns on legs and bikini area

by Darlene

I went to my doctors office who recently opened a laser spa. Originally the dr did the laser removal of legs and bikini. Then they hired a lady who apparently had years of experience with lasers. She burned my skin - at least 15 spots!!!! The lady was let go. The doctors are now going to do the treatments. However, I met with the owners of the laser and they say the scars will go away in 6 months!!
Will they? Its been 2 months and I still have white scars. What should I do?

Go to a dermatologist

I got dark burns all over my Bikini area from Elsa's in Burlington Ontario (about 100 spots). I went to a dermatologist and he prescribed hydroval (a corticosteriod) to help reduce the pigmentation and even out the skin.

It helped greatly, it's been a over a month since I got burned and I only have one tiny white scar in one spot.

I don't know if hydroval will help in your case. When I used it I still had dark spots. I was told to only use it for 10 days or I could get hypopignmentation (a loss of pigmentation).

I was amazed by the results. I strongly recommend going to a dermatologist to see what they can do. I'm glad I did

Good luck, I know how you feel. I was devastated when I got burned. I'm sure it will look fine by the summer
