    Default Possible cause of this? (pics included)

    Hi

    I recently had an IPL my Dr. in the UK and seem to have had an extreme reaction on my chin area but not anywhere else on my face.

    We're just trying to figure out why this has only happened on my chin. He's a very competent Dr. and is Bitter trained so the reason for these burns are a mystery. I don't know the settings but i think on the first treatment he usually goes easy on the power to gauge the patients reaction.

    I wasn't tanned in the area but hair removal in the area a month before the IPL caused a skin infection and the area had just recovered. Just wondering if the skin was still a bit tender?

    Thanks

    BTW it's pretty much all cleared up now about 2 weeks after treatment. Flushing is down too!

    looks weird, good news it has cleared up.

    maybe there's a simple reason for that:

    you might have been hit twice there?

    No, i'm not starting that until my IPLs are completed. I hear that's a deadly combo.
