I am not easily swayed. I am not easily convinced. Even if you tell me that the $500 a shot 2oz serum being squeezed onto my crinkles (made obviously from magical unicorn horns) will turn back the clock 20 years. No, I won’t buy it. However, over the past couple of years I’ve become a bit curious, a bit suspicious of some of my regulars who come to see me every four weeks or so. Where have those blotchy sun spots gone, and how come they don’t have reservoirs of broken veins along their nasal folds anymore? After much questioning, one treatment reigns top of the list: “IPL” aka Intense Pulsed Light. As Wikipedia tells me it’s “a technology used by beauty studios and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments including hair removal and photo rejuvenation. The technology utilizes a broad spectrum light source, with a general spectral range of 515 to 1200 nm……” blah blah blah. But can it cook?
Listen, I’m not that vain, but if a 20-minute treatment with zero down time can rid me of my sun damage, sign me up man!!! This is where my good friend Mark Youssef aka “Dr. Feelgood” comes in. Dr. Mark asked me to come into the office so that he could show me his equipment (get your dirty minds out of the gutter. This is a professional office, people!) We discussed the many benefits of IPL – not just ridding me of the large patches of hyper pigmentation on my neck, cheeks and chest, but also the other benefits as you’ll hear him tell in the video below. By the way, Dr. Mark advised me not to use lidocaine as it can promote more redness at the end of the treatment. The only parts that hurt are the eye area and nose. Other than that, it’s cake! (read to the end, because my QB clients get a fabulous discount on their IPL at his office).
I wholeheartedly recommend this treatment and I would do it again. Maybe not on my face as it can completely rid you of freckles and I have to embrace my Irish heritage. But the neck, chest, hands, arms, legs and all other bits and pieces, yes!
Here is the promised insanely fabulous discount for your first visit to Dr. Mark’s office with his equally fabulous nurse Michelle.
Total for all three areas is $695, if patients purchase all three areas in same visit, Dr. Youssef will offer an additional discount for a total of $595.
