Can IPL laser treatment to the face cause nerve damage. Would this damage be permanent or can it clear up over time?

Nerve damage and IPL
Unlikely. The treatment is at the skin level. Nerves are significantly deeper. You may feel some tingling, which is secondary to swelling. This is temporary.
Finally, make sure that you have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist that specializes on lasers.
