I had an IPL treatment last week and have already noticed a few spots (about the size of my finger tip in my cheek and below my eye) that are slightly indented that were never there before. Is this scarring? Is this normal? How can I prevent it from getting worse? Thanks!
How Do You Prevent Further Scarring from IPL?

It is not typical to see indentations after an IPL PhotoFacial treatment.
I'm not certain what these indentations represent. This does not sound like scarring which may result if your skin was burned. You should bring these concerns to the attention of your physician.
I hope this is helpful for you.
