IPL Fades Hyperpigmentation and Decreases Face Redness Seattle, WA
To improve the texture and tone of my skin after years of bad acne and sun exposure, nothing works quite like IPL with no downtime. I've had about 6-10 IPLs over the last 6 years at various facilities around the country. Each IPL fades sunspots (after making them much darker) and decreases overall redness. The result is a rejuvenated and brighter face! I also notice that any large/cystic acne that I have at the time resolves within 24 hours after the laser treatment.
The one caveat is that the darker freckles (especially on the cheek bones and high forehead for me) will look like little flecks of dirt after the procedure for the next 2 days. These are pretty easy to cover with makeup, but I wouldn't do 2 or 3 days before an important event.
