I had IPL done several times and was VERY bruised each time. No makeup will cover for the first week and takes 2 weeks before the purple subsides. Is this normal? Is the surgeon using too high a setting? Why is it always advertised as "no down time"? If this is the norm? I really didn't see much of a change so discontinued, but continue to hear great things about it. Am I the only one with this reaction?
