Keep out of direct sun light. Use suncreen regularly. Keep area moist with Aquaphor. Do not pick at scabs. You may need to you Hydroquinone creams after the scab falls off to prevent hyperpigmentation. Follow up with your provider.
Hope this helps.

Was the IPL done by a doctor or a staff member? Appears as a burn with hyperpigmentation. Best to seek in person evaluation.
