I had my IPL performed at Dr. Palm's office. I am extremely happy with the results that I am seeing. The procedure went really well. I was given a numbing cream before hand, and had no discomfort. My face was slightly warm for a few hours afterwards. The entire treatment took maybe 15-20 minutes, not including the prep time for the numbing cream. I would do this again in a heartbeat. I also had a Resurfx treatment done right after my IPL, which I will also review. I went to work after the treatments. I had a little swelling the following day, and was provided an rx to eliminate redness, which seemed to work. My skin did feel a little rough for a few days, as anticipated, but that dissipated quickly. For me, I had no real downtime, and no one noticed that I had anything done. My skin is much smoother, my pores appear tinier, and many fine lines seem to have disappeared. I am really glad that I had this done. (See my Resurfx review as well)
Update on IPL
I am so happy with the long term results of this procedure that I can't wait to do it again. Since having this procedure, I can continue to see results, and in fact have people commenting on how good my skin looks. It should be noted that I was born with very ruddy fair skin, with bigger pores, so for people to complement my skin out of the blue is nothing short of a miracle. Note that I had this procedure in tandem with Resurfx, so results were a combined effect. If money were no object, I would have this on my chest and hands, because it really makes a huge difference removing the brown and red age spots that seem to come out of nowhere. Highly recommend this procedure from Art of Skin M.D.
