I am 36 years old and used to use a tanning bed. The past few years I started to see red marks on my face--sun damage.
I've had five IPL sessions now. Although it is a slow process, I am happy with the results. It has eliminated the major red marks on my face. My doctor charged $600 for a package of three IPL sessions.
IPL is not pleasant, but it is not unbearable either. Typically I am a little pink the first few hours after, and then I return to my normal color.
Lesson Learned - Use sunscreen! I could have avoided this!
