expertise with laser
My daughter has an h on her elbow area, about about 2.5 x 4.5 inches. It is flat, pink and splotchy--much improved over years past. She would like some laser to see if it can be lightened, and her dermatologist whom we love just bought a laser machine. My question is should we let him do the laser treatment? While he's a great dermatologist, he just got the laser machine. What do you guys think? Can he botch it or is it pretty straight forward? I think if the h was on her face or somewhere very obvious I'd be a lot more worried, but I'm still concerned about whether practice makes perfect. The dr. also said that since her skin is dark (she's Chinese) we should wait until the dead of winter to do it, since there would be no tan. So, if that's the case, we either do it now, or wait another year, or find a different dr.
