If I have a pacemaker, would IPL, lasers or radiofrequency be safe?
The answer is that lasers (one wavelength) and IPLs (a mixture of different wavelengths) are light energy applied selectively to the skin, so they don’t interfere with pacemakers. I like patients to be absolutely safe and check with their cardiologists first though.
Secondly, devices that use radiofrequency, a type of sound wave CAN interfere with pacemakers depending on the device. With these procedures, you absolutely MUST get an okay from your cardiologist or contact the company yourself to be sure. Safety first!! Dr. I
