PIH after IPL
Thank you for your question aa2. I am sorry to hear about your situation. IPL is a great treatment for facial rejuvenation and can also be used for permanent hair reduction. After an IPL treatment one can get PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). This resolves slowly on its own. Products containing ingredients such as hydroquinone, kojic acid, and vitamin C can help them resolve faster, as can further laser treatments. When my patient has PIH, I decrease the settings on the next treatment: use a higher wavelength filter, decrease the fluence, increase the pulse width, and use colder temperatures. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
