after first IPL treatment..HELPP!

Recommended Posts

I had my first ipl treatment about 3days ago.

I should've gotten an aftercare instruction paper but I never got one.

I came home and saw my face but there weren't any difference.

My acne was almost gone, my skin was smooth left with just light red,brown marks.

I thought one ipl treatment will have them all gone, but no.

about an hour later those marks looked darker than before.

I felt my skin looked worse than before.

Also there were tiny new black spots which I thought was a blackhead and picked on it but it got bigger. I started panicking and found out that there were more of those tiny spots which looked like a size of a dust. I thought something was on my face

so I rubbed them and scratched them, but it wasn't gone.

I searched online and saw that I werent suppose to scartch,pick,rub,or do anything.

My face is now red here and there, and even the parts that I haven't touched

has the old mark that I thought was suppose to be gone, now DARKER!!

My face looked so much better before,

I feel like crying, I feel like I spent that money to get my skin worseeeeeeeeeeee.

I should've just went shopping or something.

I'm soooo scared right now. Please help me..

is this normal?? will I get better??

some said it will peel off later, but I really can't believe that

cause my face has no signs of peeling, no scabs or anything.

but just new spots, and darker spots. Will it be gone? It wont be permanent??

Texture of my skin doesn't even seem any different.

just smooth just like before. so worried I'll now have to spend more money to fix this.


just please anything. How does it go away? will it really just fade out after??

Best thing to do is ask your doctor or whoever that performed your peel. They can probably help you out better then us.
