📽💕💕 Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) #PhotoFacial 🚨
✨ Where: Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. ✨ Who: Bridgette 💜 (PA). ✨ What is it? the treatment of skin pigmentation, sun damage, and thread veins) as well as to alleviate acne. ✨ Does it hurt? No, the initial shock of it was really strange (as you could see 🤓), but it is just more of an annoying feeling than anything else. I didn't need any numbing cream; it was like a 1/10 on the pain scale. ✨ Why I did it: Living in FL I have sun damage from not wearing sunscreen in my teens/early 20’s. I was starting to get brown pigmentation on my face, but also wanted to lighten a scar next to my mouth from beauty mark removal. I still have residual hyperpigmentation from hormonal acne around my chin. ✨ How many sessions do you need? It varies, so def consult your dr! I had noticeable lightning of dark/red spots after my first treatment, but will (maybe?) need a couple more to get rid of it completely. It has lightened even more since I had it done (1 week ago today). Your skin feels like you had a sunburn for maybe an hr after treatment and then your sun damage comes out of the woodworks. It eventually starts to flake off throughout the week. ✨ Please be SUPER careful about who you go to for this treatment. Do your research and only see a professional; you only have one body; don’t let it get burned- literally! I’ve been going to @sarasota_plastic_surgery for many years. Find someone who is highly recommended in your area :) I will do an updated video after my second treatment.
