I underwent my 5th vasculight IPL treatment for my upper lip yesterday. Almost immediately afterwards my skin started to blister up and leak some sort of fluid. Today, it is also swollen. This also happened to me last time without the swelling. It was mostly clear in 3-4 days and pretty much gone by 1 week. I am concerned about permanent damage to my skin if this keeps happening. Could somebody please tell me if those side effects are normal and if they are going to permanently damage my skin if it continues to happen?
She went over my upper lip twice. Once with a small crystal for the fine hairs and once with a larger crystal for the coarse hairs (or the other way around, I don’t know). The treatment fluence was 38 j/cm2.
