Even before the stay at home orders this past spring, I had begun investigating at home beauty treatments. While I knew their efficacy might likely be less than at a medi-spa, I have been curious how many pricy beauty treatments can be one at home for a fraction of the cost.
Over the past several months, I have tried out a variety of skin care devices and regimens, some boast immediate impairment, while others are meant for long term gains.
Before beginning my quest, I sat down and assessed my skin, and identified two goals. (I have found that it’s best to work on one or two things at a time so you can more easily track results). Number one, I wanted to get rid of three brown spots on my cheeks. For years the spots have bothered me, and I’ve tried creams and lotions, none worked to date. Second, since I discontinued bio-identical hormones a year ago for health reasons, my skin’s elasticity has taken a hit, so my journey this 2020 is to work on both of those conditions.
My quest lead me to IPL. I was quoted $1,500 for four IPL treatments, which were said to improve my skin’s collagen production and address the brown spots. However, I had received mixed reviews on the procedure. When I saw the opportunity to purchase a modestly priced at home IPL laser device, after a bit of research I took the plunge.
I’ve tried at home IPL laser, micro current, and other devices. Check out my YouTube channel for more and be sure to subscribe and click the notifications button so will know when a new video is live.
