Hello... I am doing IPL to treat my rosacea, high pigmentation, sun and pregnancy spots. I also want to get microdermabrasion to achieve better results. My question is: how do I accommodate the 2 of them? Can I do IPL, wait 2 weeks, do microdermabrasion, wait 2 weeks and so forth? What do you recommend? Thank you Irina

IPl and microdermabrasion
In my office I often do microdermabrasion directly before an IPL, especially on people with stubborn areas of browns. It's fine to do the treatments the same day (as long as a peel isn't applied), or you can stagger them a few weeks apart like you're suggesting.
