IPL: Q&AAsk a Question
Can IPL Treatment Interfere with Skin Cancer Detection?
I know IPL treatment does not CAUSE skin cancer, but can it make skin cancer difficult to detect? I have dense freckles over most of my body, and am considering IPL. However, I sunburned frequently as a child and the last thing I want is for my treatment to mask any visible warning signs of skin cancer. I had my entire body looked over by an oncologist, but obviously the risk is still there. Any advice would be sincerely appreciated.
