IPL: Q&AAsk a Question
1 Doctor Answer | Asked by kate25 in Boston, MA
Thank you for your question. IPL is safe in both of these situations. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is simply visible light (like sunlight), but given at a high energy. There is no carcinogenic radiation, no ultraviolet light, and no cancer potential or potential harm to internal organs / baby. The light does not penetrate farther than the skin. You should be fine doing this procedure while pregnant and while breastfeeding. Good luck!
