Dr. Nelson seemed to think that, based on what I told him, the machine was set too high during the treatment. Dr. Geronemus mentioned that it was difficult to tell from just the picture, but that I...

It's still scabbing and bleeding but the purpura under it is starting to fade like it should. I think it's coming along. I suppose there's nothing to do really but wait it out.

I would go with Roy Geronemus in New York. Early treatment does make a difference, and he is a pioneer and expert. I'm not saying that other doctors are not as good, but you know what you're...
