From: Lucy Noland offers tip for others to avoid the same pain.

11 News anchor Lucy Noland wanted to share her personal experience so that others can avoid getting burned.

A few weeks ago, I went in to get some freckles removed.

The result? I was left burned so badly that I couldn’t work for a week.

From the bright lights of the studio to the bright lights of a photo facial. The procedure looks and sounds safe enough.
The machines can do amazing things. Remove sun damage, reverse rosacea and acne and make your skin look and act younger.

“It’s capable of doing some very dramatic things to improve the appearance of the skin, but also it’s capable of causing burn injuries,” said Dr. John Wolf of the Baylor College of Medicine.

    I had the treatment today, wish I had read this first, I now have massive bruises on my face.
    Actually I would have ignored these warning if I am honest as I have been very lucky and have never suffered any negative reaction.

    I will be more careful in the future though. I hope the damage is not permanent.
