Ipl is Not Right for Me with Malesma - Vancouver, BC

I went to a laser clinic in Vancouver and intended to have my melasma. My melasma was not very serious as to compare to some of my friends. I was assured by my doctor that after five sessions of IPL, my melasma would be removed.

Sadly, it did not happen. After my fifth IPL treatment, my melasma got worse than before. The area got larger. The color got darker as well. I also suffered from the uneven strips on my both sides of my cheeks.

I addressed my concerns with my doctor, but he just did not do much to help me resolve my
problem. After $1800 and $350 their recommended cosmetic, my skin did not get better but worse.

Dont believe anyone that tells you that IPL will remove melasma. It is all lies!

Hi emily,

Welcome to the community. That's not cool that your procedure didn't work, especially since you went in to have it take care of an already existing problem. Have you gone back and asked your doctor why it didn't work and how come you have Hyperpigmentation lines? Please keep us updated.

Thanks so much for the review,
