My first treatment was May 13. I have very bad dark pigmentation on both cheeks and a little on my forehead. The procedure wasn't painful, a little pinch here and there, but I slapped on a lot of the numbing cream beforehand. The purple and brown spots showed up immediately and progressively got worse for a couple of days. It was so horrible looking, I didn't leave the house for a week. My spots were noticeably lighter.
The second treatment was May 27 so my face finally cleared up a couple of days ago. My forehead looks fantastic but my cheeks still have a little dark pigmentation still. My next appointment will be for dermabrasion to help with the Obaji system.
Overall, I am THRILLED! Initially, I wanted the Pearl; however, my doctor took one look at me and suggested IPL and I'm so glad she did since it is a fraction of the cost!
If you have dark pigmentation, this is the way to go.
