Meet Me & My IPL Brown Spots....
On the Side:
-Will see glowing skin. After several gal pal saw me, they ran out and made an appointment with my doc. I think this is why IPL can become addictive uh....
-Avoid the sun if possible the first week. Else, make sure you are really well protected with a hat and sunblock. If we are going to spend money and time, then it is important to take precaution.
-Find a board certified dermatologist. After all, we only have one face.
-If you are on any medication, please let your doc know about it. I heard a story which a gal was on hormone medication and decided not to tell her doc. Well, after her treatment, her spots became darker than before.
-Keep face moisturized, but not too heavy.
-Lighter spots on my face have disappeared but melasma spots on my cheek are still there, though lighter. These will take multiple treatments.
-Never leave the house without sun protection. Sunblock is part of my daily skincare routine now. I will apply it as soon as my moisturizer is absorbed. Now, I don't even use foundation anymore because my skin tone has evened out and glowing skin does not require dressing up.
Before I started my treatment I was pretty anxious. Hopefully sharing my experience can help those who are considering. Every person is different so consult a qualified doctor before you do anything.
