IPL Photofacial-Day One - Orange County, CA

Just had IPL yesterday afternoon on face and neck (no chest sun damage) and it's now the morning after. Definitely have the coffee ground look with lots of dark freckling. Can't tell what the final result will be, but I think the coffee ground effect is what's expected and will help reduce freckling and sun spots I've developed over my 53 years. A numbing cream was applied before the procedure, I didn't feel more than a pin-prick of pain with each zap although my face felt hot and sunburned for about 1-2 hours afterward. Not bad discomfort at all. Thus far, I'm glad I did this but only time will tell the results- I will update this review once/week at least for the next three weeks. I used a Groupon for this and paid $89.

It's been one week and I'm very pleased with the results. Freckling and sun damage have definitely been reduced. My skin looks smoother. I go for a second round of IPL in two more weeks and will report if there is further improvement.

Just went for my second IPL and hope the results will enhance the great result I got from my first treatment. I have much "softer" freckling and complete elimination of several dark/sunspots as a result of the first treatment. Will report how things are in 4-5 days.

Thanks for letting us know about your second treatment! Do you have about the same amount of "coffee grounds" or does this time seem different?

I'm so glad to here you didn't experience much pain when you had your IPL done. How are things looking & feeling today?

Still coffee grounds look but slowly starting to slough off. Can't tell if there are benefits until coffee grounds are gone.
