I love my skin after IPL. I was a teenage sun goddess and needed to undo a lot of sun damage that started becoming visible in my early 30s. IPL was a quick, effective and positive solution to my skin woes. It removed a number of dark sun spots, improved the texture of my skin and helped reduce the oil I usually fight with.
I repeat the procedure on an annual basis and am a daily sunscreen user. It is not a permanent solution, but worked well for me. I do not have laxity or texture issues so some of the more aggressive laser options seemed like overkill at this point. I do have olive skin and only have the procedure done when I do not have any self tanner or suntan left on my skin since the light is attracted to the brown coloring.
