Woman suffers horrifying burns from laser treatment

When Anastasia Serdobintseva decided to have her legs lasered, she assumed she'd leave the salon with silky smooth pins.

Instead, the Moscow, Russia resident emerged from her treatment in agony, her entire legs covered in painful, unsightly red blisters.

"A few months ago, I got a new salon," Anastasia wrote on Facebook, in a post warning others against having laser treaments at unreliable venues. "Cute, cozy... While I did my nails, I met the girls and they told me about laser wax."

Liking what she heard, Anastasia booked in for a session with the salon manager, "Svetlana".

"Alas, that day, something clearly went wrong and Svetlana said something about a low pain threshold," she wrote, adding that the pain was blamed on her "sensitive skin" when in fact the laser was "slowly and burning my skin".

She phoned an ambulance and was taken to hospital where she received treatment for the burns. It will take her legs up to six months to heal.

"I've got a burn of both legs of 1-2 degrees, I've been walking in the dressing and in the bandages," Anastasia wrote.

"For the next six months, I can't wear short skirts/pants, because I can't let the burned skin be exposed to the sun."

"Unfortunately, I don't have a refund, no contract and the salon is denying everything. I don't know what's going to happen, but I know that I'm not gonna recommend this salon even to my worst enemy.... Be careful!
