i have dark skin and i've had IPL done on me. the lady assured me that it will not cause any problems, however i do have hyperpigmentation. she told me that it would only last for a few months at most, but i've had some of these marks for 10 months now. did she actually change the pigments in my skin? will it ever return to normal? lol, i've googled it and it says that hyperpigmentation can be as hard to remove as a tattoo. is the change of pigment permanent or is there a way to get it back to normal?
BTW, this place was pretty classy - and way expensive.
