Is anyone familiar with IPL, photorejuevenation, treatment? As I am currenly undergoing it your inputs would be appreciated. Do you believe this would be effective towards red marks, hyperpigmentation left behind by old acne. Additionally, I am doing microdermabrasion as a complement. Thank you for your thoughts. O:)

I'm doing it for active acne, so far I've had 2 treatments. How is yours going? It makes my skin so sensitive that every time i use topicals weeks afterwards it makes my face so red.

A spa near where I live was offering like 6 sessions of it for only $500. Sounds very tempting, until I heard some people who had bad results with it. I don't know if it would help me. I have a lot of rolling scars on one side, plus reddness in those rolling scars.

I am not sure as to it's effectiveness, as I just had my 2nd tx today. I will tell you onething, though, within 3 days of my last microderm I peeled extensively and within a week my skin had lightened a bit. As I am doing it in combo w/ IPL it's hard to tell where that result came from. I shall have a better idea as I progress a bit w/ these tx. Have a great day!
