Blacked out Plastic Goggles As Safe As Metal Goggles for IPL Facial Treatments?
Hi. I meant to ask this in a previous question but forgot. I had an IPL (Palomar Starlux) treatment on my face. They provided me with blacked out plastic goggles for eye protection. They got very close to my eyes and the flashes were incredibly bright. What I am worried about is that these were not metal goggles. Most of the literature I have read says you must use metal goggles to protect yourself from eye damage. Would PLASTIC darked out goggles protect me also? Worried.
Depends on the type of light used
