IPL: Q&AAsk a Question
Upset and Very Scared After Ipl. Afraid my Face is Ruined. Eyes Are Swollen Shut and Bruising.
I received ipl yesterday for a few broken capillaries on my cheeks and a couple patches of over pigmentation due to hormone replacement therapy. I am terrified at how I look after 24 hours. Please help me with some advice as to what I can do. My eyes are almost swollen shut and the bruising or burning on my cheeks is ghastly looking. This was not what I was led to expect! I'm very upset and uncertain what to do or when I will look decent again. Would love to post a pic but don't know how.
