So I had an inital consultation with Dr C today about ipl treatment. what a nice guy! Literally spent an hour answering all my questions. I feel reassured that I am going to the right man. I had a test patch sort of near my armpit, anyone else ever have it there?! A few hours later and you cant tell where i had it. He said the majority of his patients need only 2-3 ipl in the first year to get clearance of redness but that it has minimal impact on flushing. Has anyone found improvement with flushing from ipl? He recommended the Yag laser for that but I was a bit concerned about the 2-4 weeks increased flushing before seeing any improvement.
Whats everyone think?
