Is It Okay to Have IPL Two Weeks After Thermage?

I had Thermage two weeks ago. Is it ok to have IPL now? They say I need IPL 5 times every two weeks, but I'm afraid it's too much for my skin.

I am assuming you want to do IPL over the same area as you did Thermage. I see no problem doing that and you will likely improve your result by combining the two treatments. Thermage does deep tightening of the skin while IPL really works on the overall surface apperance of the skin by reducing red, broken capillaries, brown spots and reducing pore size.

Good Luck
