I was never under the impression that IPL would do anything for wrinkles as some here seem disappointed in. I went for the discoloration caused by sun damage, large pores, and reddish skin. I paid $3000.00 for 6 treatments that included light therapy and 4 facials. While I have seen subtle improvement- brown spots are mostly gone, lg pores are smaller and the red is not as intense- the cost is insane. After each treatment your skin plumps up and you are so excited, then disappointed because it goes away. The pain was minimal, I don't understand that some claim the pain is bad. Not worth the amount I paid, but if you can find it cheaper, and all you expect is smaller pores and smoother color- then it does work.
