For me it was an absolute waste of time and money. I was treated at Tender skin international, to get rid or lessen the black patches around my lips, for a span of 6 months (July, 15 to Jan, 16). I was initially asked to undergo 6 laser sessions after every 2weeks. I religiously followed all my session until my 4th laser session where I found that there was absolutely no effect of these sessions. Through blood test it was found out that the lasers are not working because of low Ferritin and border line vitamin levels. I was kept on medicines for around a month and the ferritin and Vitamin levels roused significantly. But then I started getting multiple boils all over my body. These boils were bleeding boils and very painful. Till date I have these boils on my body. It takes around 2 weeks to cure one boil and even after the boil gets cured, it leaves a mark or scar permanently on my body. I am not a medical student so can’t comment if the occurrence of these boils has to do with medicines that I took to raise my Ferritin and Vitamin levels (the medicines were prescribed by Dr.Deepali and Dr.Sonia). But if I go with the sequence of events, it happened only after consuming these medicines. Keeping my boils issue aside, for my dark patches which were the same to what I started with, I was recommended 4 IPL sessions. I started with the first session and now I have developed multiple pimples on my face. Before going to Tender skin international, I was only struggling to get rid of black patches but I have one more problem to fight for i.e., Pimples or boils on my face.
