So far, I have had one IPL photo facial done - about 5 days ago. I am being treated for melasma / brown spots of uneven pigmentation and some sun spots.
The treatment stings alittle but is tolerable and you feel like you have a mild sunburn after. Immediately after one treatment, I noticed my spots becoming darker. And some of those spots are already flaking off after 5 days.
My concern is that only the darker areas of my face were treated first. I still have alot, alot of medium brown areas that she said she would get in the next treatments. I am just wondering how many treatments I will actually need. I was not told - just a wait and see thing...
I was hoping they could do ALL of my spots in one treatment and then come back for other treatments if they needed to fade more.
Has anyone else had this type of experience where they only treat certain spots first and then get the rest later on?
