Buyer beware! -

I really didn't ever want to be the person complaining about their purchase online, but this needs to be said in hopes that other people who purchase this don't experience the same issue I did. I started using my Tanda clear 3 weeks ago and was beyond exited because I had read great reviews. My skin is usually well behaved in the spring, fall and winter but the increased humidity in the summer combined with my already oily skin just causes major breakouts every summer, so I decided to give the Tanda clear a try. First of all, the battery doesnt even hold a charge long enough to complete a full treatment cycle (I usually used it on 5 areas of my face, so 15 minutes). But that isnt what bothered me. Ever since I've been using the Tanda my face has broken out in the weirdest rash/acne flare up Ive ever experienced. My problem area was my chin area, so naturally that's where I used the Tanda. Now my entire chin AND even extending up to my cheeks is covered in teeny tiny little bumps that seem to definitely be contagious because they keep spreading. I have never had acne that looks like this before and I am so frustrated because I bought this device thinking it would solve my problem, not add to it. Literally every area that I'd been using the tanda on over the past 3 weeks is covered in these little bumps...I had to schedule an appointment with my dermatologist today it's gotten so bad.
Some people (according to reviews) have used this and had amazing results, so of course its just my luck that I would experience worsening effects. Be careful...if you buy this product and notice little bumps forming stop use immediately! I kept using it just thinking it was a break out and that the Tanda would clear it up but it actually had the opposite effect...very disappointing :(
