After a IPL burn you should consistently apply hydrocortisone ointment and bacitracin a couple times a day. Also it is very important to stay out of the sun!!!! You will get more pigmentation on the surface!! Your skin does not need to be forever damaged after an IPL burn.
While the procedure is going on it is important to remember that you are part of this procedure....it is hard to burn someone if they are communicating with the tech, it is also hard to burn someone if the patient knows what to expect. There are clinics that do burn people though.
It is also very important to provide accurate medical history, not have sun exposure and to research the place you go.Anytime a burn like this happens it is terrifying, but its not the end of the world....its something that can easily be treated.
