I don't know what everyone else is complaining about. I had IPL done on my armpits, legs and vaginal area (entire area). I used to have an ingrown hair problem BIG time, I had red bumps, razor burns, and discoloured skin. After only 4 IPL treatments on my legs, they look photoshopped. They are smooth, silky, NO dark dots, NO more ingrowns, NO more rough skin. I feel so confident. My armpits look photoshopped as well, perfectly even, same toned and smooth, silky skin. The discolouration on my vaginal area is completely gone. The ingrowns are gone and I look like a porn star down there!! I also did IPL on my hamstrings for some cellulite that has been appearing, and after only 3 treatments the cellulite is completely gone!! If it didn't work for you, then your practitioner did it wrong, at too intense a level or had a bad machine. I have been doing IPL for a year now and it's the best thing I've ever done. I look like walking photoshop skin.
