The next morning I was happy to see the red splotches were gone, but now there were a shower of tiny brown spots on my nose and cheeks. These are exploded freckles and areas of discoloration. ( See photo)
I know this means that my skin will have a pinker more even color, but at this point its disconcerting. They are supposed to fall off in a day or two.
While the after effects of the IPL laser is far less severe than a traditional laser, I wonder if the concept of “lunchtime laser” has been ovesold. I don’t know where you work, but I think my colleagues and clients would notice my new spots and splotches. Next time I am going to have this type of anti-aging procedure on a Friday afternoon. I’ll stock up of DVD’s, get the latest Patricia Cornwall book , fill up a basket of food from Eli’s and take it easy over the weekend. By Monday, I’ll be a little fatter, but my skin will be glorious.
