I have had IPL several times. I looked online at videos and read several articles, and people always talked about how they had to have damage in order to get results. I had some on my face, and honestly, I did not see much in the way of results. I had some reduction in redness, but no sloughing of brown spots, etc. I had my chest done and I was able to tolerate a higher level of pain. I did notice some immediate results in my chest area. Because I wanted to see quicker improvements I decided to get a numbing cream and apply it myself before going this last time. After having the procedure I started to experience intense itching. I had a rash breakout on my chest and below my breasts. I think the mixture of numbing spray, gel and cream that was applied after caused an allergic reaction. The next day my chest broke out in a rash. I do not know what the end result of all of this will be..I am just glad it is not my face, but I do want to warn people to not apply the numbing cream. If you cannot tolerate the pain, the heat level is too high.

It was not the technicians fault that I had this reaction. She warned me about numbing the area first.
