I decided to try IPL after a friend of mine got a series of 5 treatments and looked incredible. Her sunspots cleared up, and her skin tone became even and fresh looking. Although I'm only 31 years old, my skin has prematurely aged due to sun overexposure. (Now use SPF 30 daliy, as of a year ago when i started to notice the fine lines and sun spots)
Anyway I had one treatment and i can already tell the difference. The brown spots have gotten much lighter, and i can now cover them with make up.
on the plus side, it's not too painful, and it only took about 5 days to fully heal.
on the down side it it's 400.00 a session and i'm scheduled to have at least 3. Also, she did burn me accidentally. the burn formed a blister on my chin, and it looked terrible. a week later it's healing nicely and looks like it wont scar. Either way it was worth it to me. My face just looks brighter, with a much more even skin tone already.
i'll keep you posted after my next treatment.
