I didn't do enough homework before I did this. I had two sessions. The first one was on my face, neck and chest. My face was fine, my chest was burnt, painful and did not seem normal. I went back a second time and only did my face since I didn't have any problems.
The second time I broke out in hard bumps all along my jaw and cheeks -- places that I don't ever break out. I started to get very freaked out that I caused major damage to my face since by that point, I had done my homework and learned that a lot of people experience negative and sometimes devastating results.
Luckily it cleared up after a week (I put hydrocortizone on it three times a day). I really wanted it to work for me since I have roseacea and some dark sun spots. It did nothing for either issue and I was an ideal candidate with my skin coloring. I would never recommend that anyone take a chance with IPL's.
