I’m a male currently undergoing laser hair removal on my face (cheeks, beard, upper lip) with a regular diode laser. I’ve started looking into getting IPL (or “I2PL”) treatments on my face to reduce sun/age spots and uneven pigmentation (some websites refer to this as “skin rejuvenation” or “photo facial”). I guess I have three questions/concerns:
Is this safe to do or could it really mess up my face? I’d get it done by the same dermatologist that’s handling my laser hair removal, and he said that we’d space each respective treatment about 3-4 weeks apart (meaning, alternating laser hair removal/IPL every 3-4 weeks).
Could the IPL interfere with or hinder my laser hair removal results?
Is there a possibility that IPL could induce hair growth on my face where there’s super fine hairs/peach fuzz?
