After being recommended IPL by my dermatologist for my sparse, thin beard because of chronic ingrown hairs and blemishes, I'm thinking of doing it. However, I am afraid of the scarring and other horror stories I've heard.
My dermatologist uses a Palomar brand IPL machine. Is this safe? And will I break out in blemishes, severe redness, or any other irregularities? I do not want to have to go into hibernation during my treatment. What will it be like?
