The hyperpigmentation was very strong under my eyes (exactly the area I wanted to treat the most, because of my dark circles caused by spider and blue veins). My doctor says it means I can't use intense pulse light treatment anymore. Are there any alternative treatments to treat those spider/blue veins that does not involve laser and therefore are safer in regarding hyperpigmentation?
Hi, I had IPL therapy on my nose (just 2 bursts of light). I don't think it was strong because I didn't feel anything and my skin wasn't red after at all. The practitioner did not use eyewear on me and it has been a day and a half and my eyes are fine. However, I started researching and found out eyewear is absolutely compulsory. Now I am worried that some damage has been done to my eyes. Would damage be noticed right away, or could it take a week or more to appear?

My doctor put me on Xarelto for 3 months. I am terrified of this fast-tracked drug and the possible non-reversal in case of a severe internal bleeding incident. Is IPL appropriate if there is a blood clot in the surface vein close to the popliteal.

I have a small but bulging vericose vein behind my knee, it runs up my thigh about 6". I worry about how it bulges. I want to have the Vasculight laser done but I have 2 kids and am scared to death of getting a blood clot. What are the chances of this happening?
I know IPL can treat small veins and broken blood vessels. I've also heard it can be helpful for a variety of other skin conditions, like acne scars and age spots. Is this true? What can IPL treat, and what are it's limitations?

I have a birthmark on my leg I have wanted to remove for years. I'm in my 20s, with fair skin and the birthmark is quite dark, about 2x3 inches. Would IPL be an effective treatment? I'm looking for something non-invasive.
