Remote Chance but would avoid

Physicians when determining to use a drug or device during pregnancy always weigh the risk-benefit ratio. We actually do this all the time. However, this ratio become even more acute during pregnancy.

Although there is a very slim chance that the IPL would have an adverse effect on your baby, why take a chance...any chance.
