I’m curious if any of you have tried Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments to deal with sunspots, freckles, rosacea/redness, or visible capillaries? I’m considering trying it (I have all of those things - yay), and I’ve scheduled a consultation, but I’m also scared of the side effects. I’m particularly worried about burns because I have medium skin tone, and I’ve read that it is less effective/more dangerous for darker skins. So I would love to hear about other’s experiences and whether they thought it was worth it or not.

Thanks, GT!

(P.S. - my last two posts have been vapid and all about my appearance, but let me just say that I am so appreciative of those of you that keep on top of the political shitstorm that is currently raging. GT has become my go-to place to find out what is happening and how we can respond to it, and I am a more informed and more active citizen because of you!)
