Need to find out best dermatologist in New York city. I was given wax burns on cheeks by a salon and i have extreme burning and swelling for all night. The salon has mentioned their insurance is going to take care of all my medical expenses. I need to find a dermat who would also use laser etc to remove the scars caused by this burns and is able to work directly with the salon.


Can you mentioned the location in New York city where you are living now?

Have you asked your salon manager for their concerned dermatologist?

wht are some of the procedures performed to remove these scars at the earliest as this causes a lot of embarassment going to work


Thanks for the follow-up.

As treatment depends on the severity and extent of burn you have.

If you have severe swelling then oral and topical antibiotics should be given.

When swelling gets reduce then the combination of a prescription lightener and a few laser treatments would reduce the darkness of the area.

It may takes few weeks to get proper healing.

And it's advised to consult a dermatologist ASAP to get prompt management.



I hope this helps.

If you have any further query then feel free to ask.

Bonus and positive feedback are highly appreciated.

Good Luck.

Thank you.
