This price is for one IPL photofacial and one microdermabrasion combined. I have white/olive skin, had to stop tanning two months prior to treatment. (hard for me!, but was told I needed to do it). First they put numbing cream on my face, then cleansed my face and chest. It really wasn't that painful, and the whole time I was being "zapped" the woman had a cold, cold air blowing thing on me to keep my face cool and from swelling. My chest wasn't numbed at all and it didn't hurt at all. I walked out looking and feeling fine, a few dark spots already appearing (no one else would notice this). It's been a couple hours since my treatment and so far my face looks fine with a few brown spots appearing, but my chest is heavily spotted!! HOLY MOLY!! She used a more intense pulse on my chest, was more conservative with my face. I have another treatment scheduled in two and 1/2 weeks. She said my chest will get really "scary" looking (turtlenecks!!, good thing it's winter), and my face will show spots in the next day or so, although some are showing. My chest is stinging a bit, nothing crazy, and my face has a small, slight burn....nothing to really write about. All in all, I can't tell the results, but I'm hoping for an overall nicer, fresher appearance!
So, I just had my second treatment of photofacial...
