IPL and laser hair settings, preventing complications

I would tell your physician to be conservative in the settings and proceed with caution.  You want to go to a doctor that will take care of you and sometimes that is hard to figure out. There are ways to start the settings in a conservative way so that you have much less chance of complications. Then you can proceed to increase the settings slowly to get the results you want.

Also, there are systems out there that are safer than others. Having some way to cool the superficial layers of the skin is important to protect these layers while treating the deeper layers. Lumenis has a great IPL for Laser Hair Removaland other lasers should have a cooling mechanism that works effectively.

Consulting a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon would be something that I would recommend. We specialize in the face and are highly qualified to help you with this.
