Beauty under IPL

2 years ago I had electrolysis done on my upper lip. It took 2 years for it to be completely done. It was long but it was effective. I loved it! The only thing that I didn't like was on the first few months that I did it, it left black spots on my upper lip. It stayed for the first 8 months, then vanished right after.

Last week, I bought a coupon for IPL from one of those deal coupons available on the net.

But what is IPL? I didn't know what that is until last week..

"It is a method of hair removal from the body most commonly employed by medical practitioners and estheticians. It involves the use of a specially constructed xenon flash lamp and focusing optics.
IPL hair removal is cheaper and faster than laser hair removal. Although the precise effectiveness of IPL compared to laser epilation is debated by scientists, equipment manufacturers and practitioners, their results are generally accepted to be roughly equivalent. IPL can also be used as a skin treatment in a process known as photorejuvenation." (from Wikipedia)

I'm planning to have it done on my underarm. I'm just a little concerned because I have a very sensitive skin.. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
