Thank you for your question vbyrd. IPL is a great treatment to address multiple signs of aging. Afterword some of the pigment may come to the surface and flake off. Burns can occur after a treatment and good wound care with occlusive moisturizers such as Vaseline or Aquaphor will help with the healing process. Some people get cold sores, commonly around the mouth. Cold sores can be address with valacyclovir. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
