Rash on legs after IPL
Thank you for your question lurveme1234. IPL devices can be used for hair removal. Redness and irritation can occur after a treatment. If this happens we note it in our records and adjust the settings on the subsequent treatment. Irritation can be addressed with sun avoidance, cold compresses such as ice packs, antihistamines, over-the-counter strength hydrocortisone cream, and aloe vera. I recommend following up with your doctor for specific advice. Good luck!
