Pt came in for a fotofacial (skin rejuvenation, photofacial) which uses intense pulsed light (ipl) combined with radio frequency (rf).
The setting was 25 j/cm2 on the optical fluence and 25 j/cm3 on the radio frequency energy.
The pt's entire face was treated including the under eye area.
The machine used was the emax by syneron with the sra head.
Since the treatment, the pt has had denting in the skin, wrinkly skin, creepy texture, bumpy skin, skin atrophy, fat atrophy, and vision problems.
The emax machine by syneron is unsafe.
Please look at pulling this machine from the market before it harms others.
The rf setting of 25 is the maximum the machine will allow.
Treatment was performed at (b)(6), pa.
Reason for use: spider veins on the cheeks of the face.
