IPL After Rhinoplasty

Dear Doctor, I am considering moustache IPL treatment and I had a nose job around 7 months ago. I know most parts do not effect the nose but really small parts do. I was just wondering if anything could happen if I got the treatment. Thanks!

I would agree that it is likely safe to perform IPL seven months after rhinoplasty. I would certainly talk with the surgeon who performed your rhinoplasty just to make sure.

Thanks for the question.

At 7 months out from your rhinoplasty you should be safe to proceed with an IPL treatment. Consult with your rhinoplasty  surgeon to assure there is no contraindication.

There should be no problems with your planned procedure. Be sure to tell your physician doing the IPL about your nose job.

If the rhinoplasty was performed 7 months ago, the area should be well healed by now.  Therefore, I see no contraindication for IPL treatments for you at the present time.

It's important to be sure that the IPL treatment is the right treatment for the particular problem in the moustache area.  If it is, there is no reason for you not to have one.

7 months is long enough to be sure that an IPL therapy will not injury your new nose. Best to discuss in person with your chosen doctor.
