Annie: Hey ladies, it’s Annie. I was just in Beverly Hills today, and thought, I might as well swing by LaserAway to see if I can get a facial. Come with me! So I’m here in the treatment room waiting for my very first IPL laser facial. So, when I was in my 20s and carefree, I was a sun goddess and would sit out in the sun for hours and didn’t really see any effects at the time but didn’t realize that those effects can actually show up to five years later. So now I’m here, not only taking preventative measures for the future, but reversing some of the damage that I’ve already done. Like some of the sunspots that have shown up on my cheek area and around the frame of my face, that’s generally where they start to show up. We’re going to try and reverse some of that with the IPL laser facial. I can’t wait, first one. Let’s do this!
So we’re getting ready for the IPL laser facial and she’s putting the freezing cold gel on my face because the lasers get really warm. So this feels really cold right now but is going to feel really good during the procedure.
Nurse: You’re going to see a bright flash. 1. 2. 3. How’d that feel?
Annie: It’s okay.
Nurse: Yeah? Do you feel any stinging sensation right now; any extra heat?
Nurse: No? Okay. I’m going to do the same thing again. Ready? How’d that feel?
Annie: That was a little stronger.
Nurse: Okay. Okay, and you’re getting a little red from that so I think this is a great therapeutic level for you.
Nurse: So come toward me, and I’ll start with this side. Right over that dark spot. Are you okay?
Nurse: You’re doing great.
Annie: It kind of feels like a tiny little zap and then it’s gone. So it almost feels like someone’s maybe flicking a rubber band at you but it’s nothing that you can feel really afterwards.
Nurse: How do you feel?
Nurse: Sorry. You okay?
Nurse: You all right?
Nurse: Okay. Come this way one more time. I’m going to go over just that dark spot one more time. Okay. How do you feel?
Nurse: Annie just finished her IPL treatment. IPL stands for intense pulse light and it can reduce the appearance of acne and rosacea and also the appearance of sunspots. We recommend, for optimum results, a course of 3-5 treatments spaced 1 month apart. Anyone looking to have an IPL treatment should look on our website at laseraway.net or give us a call for a free consultation.
