    Default How long did your redness/bruising/swelling last after IPL?

    Just curious how much "downtime" people who used IPL experienced (redness, bruising, swelling, etc)? I realize it varies.......with the individual, machine used, settings, Dr, etc. I'm interested in different people's experiences. I have four days off work after my scheduled IPL. I am a male, so I can't really wear make-up to cover marks. I do expect to have some after effects, but not quite sure what to expect. I will give an update on my experience(If I go through with it)

    No downtime at all from ipl and I've had (my official estimate) 48.

    Out of 3 vbeams I had only one case of swelling (and that was a doozy). No reason for it.

    With all my IPL's the redness has always gone away within 2 hours and i have never had any bruising or swelling.

    I had bruising once, took a week / 10 days to clear up. Redness is usually gone by day 2 post ipl
