IPL Burned my Face

This is the second time for went for laser hair...

This is the second time for went for laser hair removal. The first time i went for traditional laser (ND-YAG). It worked fine. I could not continue because of relocation.

Second time I went for IPL - It burt my sking horribly. I ahve five burnt spots on my face. My dermatologist said IPL is riskier for atleast my skin type - wheatish/Asian with dark hair. dark skin/hair absorns more heat and so get burnt easily. He also said IPL has very narrow safety range.

Advanced Laser Center

They should have known what IPL range to be used on my skin. I even mentioned that my skin gets tan easily.
