I am a middle Eastern, I've done IPL on my legs and it worked well with the hair, then I got back to laser hair removal because its more effective but the worst issue associated with IPL and Laser hair removal is Pigmentation. Always make sure that the temperature is suitable and never handle tooo much pain because that is exactly why we get burned . Make sure that you tell your doctor when you feel so much pain. I handled the heat when I did my brazillian last time and I found out that the skin got burned .. I have pigmentation on my bikini area because of laser hair removal :( My biggest mistake was not going back to the clinic to check with them .. I thought that itll fade !! Another advice : avoid getting laser hair removal on dark areas .. there is no point of getting rid of the hair and getting darker skin !!!
