I had my first IPL treatment yesterday. The person that applied it was not a physician but trained to use the machine. I did not feel pain nor was there any redness after the full face treatment for brown spots, freckles on my face and deep pores.
They did apply a numbing gel to face before the treatment but no pain? Is this normal? Did they have the machine set to the correct intensity? He said it was at a 5, when physician saw me after treatment he said he would have to set it higher next treatment.
