I had crepiness around my eyes and lips; overall my skin had few wrinkles. I used to have people tell me I looked five years younger than my real age and felt that I had aged rapidly in the last few years. I spen $375 for an IPL photofacial. Afterwards, my eyes were dry, my skin was dry and I had bumps on my skin which I originally attributed to an allergic reaction to the cooling gel used fo administration. However, almost two weeks later, the texture of my skin has changed for the worse. I have the "orange peel" like texture on my cheeks that was not there before treatment. I regret doing this treatment. The aesthetician did not go over the possible side effects or consequences of this treatment. I wish I'd have known beforehand the risks to not just skin texture but my eyes also. After treatment they were sensitive to bright light and two weeks later they are still dryer than usual. It's like paying money to have your eyes and skin damaged.
