Am 55 year old. Have "birth control pill mask" on sides of face and chin, some small scarring from acne, and fine lines.

Went for a facial at a physician's office and the Anesthician suggested the IPL. Gave me a package deal of 6 treatments. Just had the first. It "smarts" for a couple of hours, but not terribly so. Afterwards had some redness and swelling in the cheek and eye areas. After a week, I am really pleased at the results. The "pepper" is almost gone.

Will get a treatment once a month for the remainder. I'm really excited if it gets better than this!


Did you use numbing cream? I have had one treatment (some brown spots)but 2nd treatment got nothing. I was afraid to have the power increased due to all the horror stories on this site about burning but $300 is a lot for each treatment not to get any results. I am wondering if I should allow her to increase strength.
