Disturbing...the acne board people are a little unreasonable. They do not, for the most part, entertain that any of this damage is real/possible. They want their acne scars and acne to go away so badly that they are blind or unreasonable about warning posts. Sadly, they may have to learn the hard way....

This one is from MMH, also. Not sure of the year. It is in regard to "Photo or FotoFacial", nothing more than an IPL, I believe:

This is nothing more than IPL:

IPL Burn Marks
IPL burn marks
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Expert: Jim B - 10/4/2008
Question

IPL burn marksI received IPL treatment on my face, during which I was in agonizing pain. It felt like I was being burned by a hot Iron. The technician kept saying it is painful but that is how it should be. I was hot red in my face when I left and by tomorrow i had dark burned spots in lines and in rows on my face, and neck like a zebra. I looked horrifying and after four days I went back to the clinic and this time the doctor saw me and was very sorry that the girl did n't test a small patch first to see my reaction before she does the treatment on my complete face. it has been 3 weeks now,the burn spots fell off and now I have some pink and some dark spots mostly on my forehead, neck and sideburns. what is now the right treatment for them? Are they ever gonna completely go away? The doctor gave me a cream that contains hydroquinone 10%, retinoic acid 0.1% and kojik acid 2% to use on my face but I just don't trust them anymore. My skin was really fine before and everyone always complemented me. I had two new tiny sun spots on my cheek and this treatment was meant to treat that. what should I do? where should I go. Please tell me I am crying everyday.

From 2008, from Australia. If any other country is unprotected as we are in the US, it would be Australia.
