I went for facial scar revision with Dr. S Barr in Sudbury. My face ended up being far worse than it was before he worked on me. My face ended up having gouges all over the cheeks and hypo-pigmentation all over it. Some of the scars are where I never had scars previously. When I said that I found it was worse, he wrote a chart note that, "patient is still not pleased with scars." and also wrote that I had sun exposure (which can cause hypo-pigmentation after this type of treatment). However, he and I both know very well that I did not have sun exposure and have NEVER been someone to be in the sun and certainly was not during the winter in which he worked on my face. When I asked to Dr. Barr about the hypo-pigmentation his response was that it would fade over time (white scars do not get whiter than white-there is no pigment left). All plastic surgeons and dermatologists that I have seen since this disaster have said there is nothing that can be done to fix hypo-pigmentation. All of these docs are also shocked about the use of an 80% acid on my face and doubted that it was really that concentrated and said over 40% causes hypo-pigmentation. I was never warned that hypo-pigmentation/ worse scarring were the likely outcome or I would have NEVER had the treatment. No amount of make-up covers these newly created scars by Dr. S Barr of Sudbury, ON :(
