  • V Beam or IPL for darker skin tones

    I would prefer Vbeam as it uses a specific wavelength that targets the vessels, whereas IPL is a broad spectrum light that will get absorbed by all tissues. The IPL can damage melanin and hair follicles. I'm a little olive and have had both vbeam and IPL without issues, but the darker your skin the more likely it is that the melanocytes can get damaged. That said I'd rather get IPL from a competent practitioner rather than vbeam from someone incompetent, so it depends what your options are where you live.
