Is non-ablative laser good for you skin? I had it done a while ago and my face looks worst than before. It cost a fortune.They assured me that it would go away, but it did not. All I saw for a month was bruising and swelling. Now I have a dent in my cheek and more lines around the eyes, what do I do to correct it?
Thank you

@Natalia: Non-ablative laser treatments can be helpful for your skin, depending upon the condition being treated with it. Regarding your specific case, without seeing pre-op photographs, post-op photographs and knowing exactly the perameters of your laser treatment, it is not possible to address your appropriate concerns directly. If your doctor can't answer your appropriate questions, then you should seek a second opinion from a laser specialist.
