IPL Laser, Day 4

By Day 4   I decided to use a Buff Puff to remove the freckle debris.  I can see clear signs of improvement in the skin. 

It looks poreless and feels very soft.  There are a few red areas of irritation which I can easily cover  with a dab of concealer. IPL is recommended for early signs of aging and I can now see why.  I  have been using Retin-A for more than five months and  a YAG laser to burn off larger freckles.  The  heavy  lifting done, the IPL laser was able to gently but effectively refine  my skin.

  1. I’ve been contemplating some sort of laser treatment for my intractable little sunspots and mild melasma. Sounds like it’s going well for you so far. Is this the first of a series of IPL treatments, or is just one session enough?

    Thanks — looking forward to seeing your next post on this.

      1. IPL is often given in a series of treatments. Bcause I had been on Retin A for five months and had removed my larger freckles with a YAG laser, one treatment gave me a marked improvement. It sounds ideal for your skin issues, but I want point out that success depends a good deal on the skill of the doctor. The IPL has a range of wave lengths of light and each one is for a different problem eg red lines, melasma, emlarged pores. I have found the best way to find a good doctor is a personal recommendation from someone you know. Then you can actually see their work.
        I will be posting my final results tomorrow. I am so happy with the results. I am planning to do it once a year to keep things looking good. Oh and one final thought– I would not plan to do this type of laser work in the summer. You have to be super- careful to keep recently treated lasered skin protected from the sun. I am using up bottles of sunscreen and actually bought a Tilly hat to shade my skin. More about the hat next week.
