Skin Care Review: IPL

by Tina Wilson, CA


Good results in just one treatment.

Numbing gel takes awhile to work and then wear off.

The procedure was painless but I can see there could be problems if not done correctly. The Dr. numbed my face with a numbing gel. Then the wand of the laser was placed on my face while different laser intensity levels were tested. I'm assuming for pain threshold validation and effectiveness. I was warned that I should note if it was painful but I was fine and found myself to be quite relaxed. It took awhile for the numbing to wear off - but it didn't impact any activity and I noted lighter skin and the small lines were diminished.

I'm happy with just one session, though I will go back for more.
