I had (notice..."had") sun a damaged area on my right cheek and some "new" dark spots that had appeared at the end of summer 2009. I chose a dermatologist. When I was advised that the "new" dark spots were age/hormonal related and not "anything medically to worry about", I then inquired what I can do to improve the over all appearance of my face. I was introduced to the IPL treatment.
Shortly after my first treatment, I noticed a wonderful difference in my complexion. I have just completed my 4th treatment. My complexion is clearer. I have a nice glow to my face. My viens on the side of my nose are less noticeable. The sun damage on my cheek has improved drasticlly and a few other things I got used to seeing everyday in the mirror have gone away.
