When Cosmetic Procedures go wrong

You are great about telling your audience about the new procedures that become available. I think it would be great and upfront if you would also talk about what happens when things don't go exactly right. I think that would be a great show, what to do when comestic procedures go wrong. For example, I recently had the "veinwave" procedure done on my legs. It is advertised as no bandaging or bruising, no scarring, no hypo pigmentation. I had a vew lines on my legs, some so small you could hardly see them. After having the procedure done, I now have deep purple lines all over my legs. Everywhere where they did the veinwave. They have tried to figure out why but can't come up with any reason I would have such a reaction. My legs look worse now than they did before I had the procedure. I'm not thinking of filing a law suit or anything like that. I know when you have elective surgery that is exactly what it is. In fact I've had lasik surgery (PRK) that didn't go well. My right eye now has a haze all the time. I had a new partial denture made for my teeth that I can't wear because it gives me blisters. I've also had a Juvederm injection that doesn't appear to have worked in my chin area. I can supply photos and medical documentation if needed. I just think it would be great to know what happens when these procedures go wrong. What to do next. Is there anyway to correct what went wrong. There has to be many folks out there that have had the same type of questions. And many more folks might have procedures done if they knew what to do if things go wrong. rocedures go array.
