IPL Before and After Pictures
I feel it’s my responsibility to try out all dermatological anti-aging procedures before you do, in case they are disastrous. I suppose you can think of me as your minion who tastes your food before you do, in case it’s poisoned. Didn’t someone do that for Jesus? Or was it Voldemort?
I can’t be sure.
In any case, this time I’ve tried IPL, also known as Intense Pulsed Light Therapy. I had my four treatments at Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald’s office on Larchmont Ave. in Los Angeles.
Dr. Fitzgerald describes IPL thusly: “IPL delivers high-intensity computer-controlled pulses of light that penetrate your skin and heat the sub-surface layers. Our staff uses IPL to reverse brown spots caused by sun damage and unwanted spider veins, while stimulating healthy, new collagen.”
And these are some of the other conditions IPL treats:
- Sun damage.
- Skin texture.
- Broken capillaries.
- Brown spots.
- Age spots.
- Dark circles around the eyes.
- Sun-induced freckles on the hands, chest, and face.
- Broken capillaries around the nose.
- Excels in helping the reduction of fine wrinkles and large pores.
Below you’ll find my IPL before and after pictures. I must love you to post these because I’m so much cuter than this! But I think you’ll see my complexion is drastically improved. I’m ebullient with the results and was frankly startled by how much red and brown I had in my skin.
I blame the 70s, where sunscreen consisted of baby oil, Sun In and tanning reflectors. With no further ado:
Dr. Fitzgerald recommends 3 IPL sessions for extreme sun damage (again, I had 4). Each treatment usually runs $750.
But Dr. Fitzgerald is offering buy 2 and get the 3rd treatment free for my clients. To take advantage of this just call Dr. Fitzgerald’s office at 323-464-8046 and let them know that Shannon Colleary referred you.
My contact there is Angela Sarff who performed all of my treatments safely and expertly.
Angela’s also really nice and just got married, so congratulate her and start bugging her about when she plans to have the first baby. Because newlyweds love that.
Oh, one last bit of information. Right after your treatment all of the brown spots on your face will turn a much deeper brown, then will scab over and by about day 5 you’ll start to look normal again. It’s relatively little downtime. And with the use of make-up you can actually be presentable the very next day.
