  1. IPL expectations

    you only get the coffee ground look on the brown spots. they take about 3-5 days to go away. they will just flake off while washing or drying your face. when your red marks are zapped they will get redder for about an hour after the procedure then gradually get lighter. you should see results after the first treatment unless they are very conservative then it might take 2 treatments but i would say no more than 3 treatments should be needed to get rid of the red marks. for myself if the marks are new usually 1 treatment does the trick. dont worry it should all go fine its really a very easy treatment and is very quick. i need to go get another one myself for the brown spots that i have i get them from the sun even though i wear spf 50. i hate that! good luck to you!
  2. ipl is the answer. it was the only thing that ever removed my hyper pigmentation. the place i go to does spot ipl's for about $100 each so its not too crazy expensive and there really is no downtime. i have had more ipl's in my life than i can count. cant say enough good things about it.
  3. Spironolactone results with pics

    ugh i hope those breakouts are starting to clear up now. if you dont mind me asking what dose are you on now? i think spiro works the best taking 100-200mg a day.

    Amen to that. I have read a lot about people going on these super strict diets. Essentially eliminating everything! I don't know how you can live like that long term. agreed its not something one can do long term. you need to live your life and enjoy it! i tried so many different diets over the years and nothing worked it was such a waste of my time. i enjoy my life now and eat whatever i want(in moderation). by the way you are really pretty. i hope that your skin just gets better and better.

    i've been taking the same dose the entire time. i take 100mg total so i take 50mg in the morning and 50mg at night. i also tried the diet route for a good while but my skin only got worse. once i got on spiro and finally cleared up it was so nice to go back to eating like a normal person.
  6. Spironolactone/PCOS

    hello. i've been taking spiro for over 4 years and havent been on birth control during that time. i found that birth control actually made my acne worse and my hormones go crazy so thank goodness for spiro! its the best and you should be totally clear by 6 months.
