My friend and I had read that IPL's were great for skin for redness, light wrinkles, etc. We were both excited to get our face cleared up and 'beautiful'.
We should have known because the clinic we both went to didn't even explain any side effects other than it may hurt like a snapping rubber band, there may be a little redness, etc. The procedure was painful, and after 6 procedures my face was still swollen and it had enhanced my, what was but not anymore, fine lines by my eyes.
It may have been the clinic or the IPL, but I do not recommend this procedure at all.
