I am thinkng of having IPL to treat flushing/blushing. I am pale-skinned but blush really easily. I can also go red if I am in a warm room, but its normal room temperature, I look normal. Would IPL help me or would this be a waste of time?
IPL to Treat Blushing?
Doctor Answers (1)
While IPL is effective for rosacea, it is not particularly good for blushing since there are no blood vessels to act as a chromophore. . You would be better off consulting with your dermatologist. Sometimes Cllonidine or Beta-blockers.are effective for flushing/blushing.
