I had my first IPL 2 weeks ago to treat broken capillaries on my cheeks. I still haven't seen them go away. How long until I see a difference?
After IPL - When Will Broken Capillaries Disappear?

When do broken capillaries disappear after IPL
IPL is an excellent treatment choice for diffuse redness. It does well for very small broken capillaries, but larger broken capillaries and facial veins are resistant to IPL and need a different laser like pulse dye laser or Nd YAG.
Normally, immediately after the treatment the area may get more red. That redness does subside after a day or so. The optimal results after one treatment with IPL are seen several weeks later. Usually it does take several treatments (2-4) to see a large difference.
