I just got home a little while ago from having my first ipl treatment done. It cost $600 for a 3 treatment package at my dermatologist. I have fair skin with many freckles as well as dark spots on my cheeks and im only 21. I have read plenty of reviews on here and was nervous about the procedure because of the horror stories, but I knew it was my only option since I've tried lightening creams with no luck!
I have a fairly high pain tolerance but I must say it HURT!! I jumped every time the light went off! Felt like a VERY strong rubber band snap! My face now feels like a sunburn...a cool rag or ice pack is helping!
