  • 2nd IPL, settings turned up and lots of spot burns ?!

    hi all

    just been for my second IPL where the setting were turned up ( not sure to what ) and i have lots of little red spots / burns ?

    had a few of the same on my first IPL on the delicate skin around my eyes , but not as many as i have now - i guess this is normal from the settings increase ?

    they are mostly on my forehead where i dont actually flush , but on my cheeks where i go red as hell there are very few of the spots / burns...

    im guessing this is normal !?

    Not normal in my experience and one of the risks of IPL. I would follow up with the dermatologist who performed this as soon as possible to see if you need any post treatment care

        Not sure sorry. My doctor recommends benadryl and paracetamol post Vbeam, but if you have actual burns from IPL that's different.

            happy to report most of the red dots had gone this morning , a few are still left that have a tiny , pinprick size hole where the skin is missing - im certain these are burns from the laser and will heal quite quickly like last time ... sadly my skin is still flushing as bad as always and the IPL has made no difference to that !

            will have to wait a few days for it to calm down to see how my baseline is doing...

              Dr Dray talks about Demodex and also why IPL towards the end of the video.

              Has IPL benefited anyone or is it dangerous?

              I have an IPL machine for my legs and keep thinking of using it on a low setting on my face.

                I definitely wouldn't use the machine made for legs on your face. IPL should be done in a dermatologists' office.
                Mine got worse after a series of IPL but it's beneficial for some.
