Knowing What's Normal with IPL--add microneedling/prp
Yes, it is normal to have some discoloration or "coffee-ground" like spots after IPL. It can take 1-2 weeks for this to resolve. I usually recommend a combination of treatments with IPL for best results. I suggest adding microneedling/prp and skin care to improve skin quality and tone. I recommend a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer
