I decided on IPL because I had dark spots on my face and uneven skin tone. I tried a series of chemical peels but this didn't seem to be working. I didn't know what to expect . The pain was unbearable, I felt like crying all through the procedure. When it was finally over my face felt like it was on fire! I had to take pain medication because the ice packs wouldn't calm the burning. My face looked as if it was burned on a grease fire, it was all covered with black patches. By the third day the black patches turned crusty and started to peel. I couldn't leave the house for 7 days due to how scary my face still looked. I now have hypopigmentation where the scabs were. Now I worry if this is going to be permanent!

This procedure should be thoroughly explained to the patients. What to expect during and after the treatment.
