Hi I have had laser done twice to my decolletage area for sun damage & it now appears dry & scaley & almost a bit scarred. I was wondering if you could recommend any treatment? It is so bad I try to cover up the area.
This is a very unusual and unexpected response to laser. How long ago was the treatment? Do you know what type of laser was used? Was it done by a doctor? The decolletage area generally is a very sensitive area to laser, and generally lower settings on the lasers need to be used. I would advise that you seek medical advice from a specialist in the area to see what has happened.
