    Give some consideration to spacing your treatments out a bit more. Not everyone falls into the "every 3 weeks is fine" protocol.

    Maybe even try taking an antihistimine before your treatment. ...

    You could try someone with a 1064 device. It may result in longer remission. Otherwise, after you have your block of 5-6 IPLs, just plan on having a touchup every 3-6 months.
