I had an IPL a week ago.The dr said a little redness a little peeling.that wasn't true, It was major bruising swelling and peeling, My face looked like I had been dragged down a gravel road on my face.It was nothing like I expected.
The good news, it has been a week and it has all peeled and my face looks awesome.If they would tell you what to expect it wouldn't be so frightening. I was going to cancel my other 2 appointments but I am going to have them, now that I know what to expect.I used vaseline everyday, and it peeled very nicely,my face is smooth and brown spots, aging spots gone. I love it.
So for the first 4 days just know it looks very bad,makeup will not cover it, but then starts to peel, and shed old skin. its worth it to look like a star in frankienstien movie, since it only took a week, I still have a little more peeling to come off close to my ears but makeup covers it.and i know it will be gone in another day or 2.
The cost is approx 350 per treatment, I am having 3 treatments.
