In August 2013, a month after I turned 28, I was convinced by a medical esthetician with 14 years of experience to try IPL for some mild hormonal acne (which was temporary anyway btw..) and some mild sun damage (mostly freckles).

Jenny de Ruiter (Cuoso) has been giving me PIL treatments for years. Her professional, caring, knowledgable manner have always made the experience very pleasant. I have my 3 treatments every autumn, after my tan is faded. The clinic offers a special in September for a package of 3 at 10 per cent off to me each fall, and I always take advantage of this.

I'm currently on my third IPL treatment for facial redness/veins and hyper pigmentation, I'm expecting to have 4 treatments. I'm very pleased with the results so far and would recommend IPL when done with the right machinery, strength and practitioner.
For my first appointment I opted not to use numbing cream as I heard it can make IPL slightly less effective on red areas...... more
