I Had IPL for Brazilian Bikini. Can That Result in Loss of Clitoral Sensation?

I just had IPL treatment done for Brazilian bikini. Can the intense light result in reduction of clitoral sensation? I noticed reduced sensitivity in that area. Is it safe to continue?

Are you having IPL as a hair reduction technique? I would certainly not repeat  any treatment that causes a problem like the one you describe. Wait a few months and re-evaluate. There may be better techniques for hair reduction than IPL.

Never heard or seen this before. But anything is possible so STOP the IPL therapy. From MIAMI Dr. Darryl j. Blinski
