I had the IPL photofacial. A series of 3 treatments. They threw in a fourth for free because it was even clear to the people providing the treatment that the first three had accomplished nothing. In fact, I think the hyperpigmentation is actually worse, brought more of the melanin to the surface or something.

Total waste of money. Don't believe the hype.

May I ask your ethnicity? I went to an open house and was told that for darker skin types or all non-White patients (including Asians) need to calm the melaniocytes in their skin with hydroquinone and retinol based products for 6 months to a year prior to the photofacial to get the best results and prevent hyperpigmentation.
