Yes, this procedure does hurt a bit (feels like a soldering iron is being used), but it's only for a few seconds and the results are almost instantaneous. I had a white bump on my chin for years that almost looked like a whitehead; was probably a fibroma, which took two treatments to get rid of completely. I'm so glad it's gone now! Also had some cherry angiomas removed and mystery bumps. Very happy with this procedure. Not sure why it's estimated cost on here is $725, though.
IPL for melasma
The melasma showed up during my pregnancy and never really went away. It's mostly along my jawline and a little across my forehead. I tried 3 treatments of IPL (which was very uncomfortable and painful) and it hardly lightened the melasma affected area. In fact, I did not notice a difference at all, really. The IPL did do a good job of getting rid of a small, random brown spot below my eye, however. I guess I just have a stubborn case of melasma. May try a chemical peel next.
