I’m hispanic and am having problems after an IPL. What should I do?
Did your dermatologist see you after the IPL treatment or was this done over the phone? If the doctor has not seen you, please call and just nicely insist that they do. It may be just fine but it sounds to me like possible antiinflammatory creams, a “bleaching” cream like Triluma, and extra sunscreening may be needed. If they won’t see you right away, I would really suggest a second opinion from another dermatologist. If you explain the circumstances nicely to the front desk, hopefully they can help you get in quickly. Good luck! Dr. I
