I’m vain, and I’m not ashamed to say it (well, maybe a teensy bit). Y’all already know I’m obsessed with anti-aging serums and creams. My goal is to look 29 when I’m 86.
I had been dying to get an intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial for the longest time, and I recently decided I was gonna go for it. IPL photofacials help diminish freckles, age spots, sun damage, rosacea, acne scars, etc. (all stuff that I want gone!). Ultimately, I just want a smooth, even complexion that looks mad fresh without makeup.
I looked up ILP on Yelpies and came across Artful Aesthetics in Oakland, CA, which had super awesome ratings. I booked an appointment ASAP. Irina, the owner, clinical director, and beauty miracle worker totally worked her magic on me! BTW, Irina is super sweet, professional, and drop-dead gorgeous (which speaks volumes about her practice).
The entire laser procedure was probably about 10-15 mins. It was only mildly painful (without numbing cream), and my skin wasn’t too irritated immediately after.
So, did it work? I’m about to post some really embarrassing, non-makeupy pics (’cause I love y’all).
As you can see, there’s a noticeable difference after just one treatment (6 treatments are recommended for optimal results). I highly recommend IPL photofacials, and I’m totally thinking about going back for session #2.
Have y’all tried IPL laser treatments? Would you consider giving it a go?
