Working on My Face: IPL Laser Treatment

After endless inner struggle and 2 months of preparation with bleaching cream, today is the day I will start IPL laser treatment for sun damage and melasma spots on my face. To be honest, I am slightly apprehensive because of all the scary laser-treatment-gone-wrong stories. To minimize risk, I did my due diligence by selecting a board certified dermatologist who worked a great deal with Asian women, and following carefully pre-treatment procedures. Also a few gal pals had gone to the same doctor with exactly treatment so it helped to comfort me. Hopefully I will not cry like a little school girl. Anyhoo, from what I witnessed so far, spots disappeared, and skin glowed. I will update my progress. Stay Tune! Has anyone done IPL (intense pulsed light) before?

*See spots on my cheek? Hopefully they will disappear after a few treatments.....

  2. I have been thinking about doing a chemical peel to help remove some age/sun spots.
