I had IPL therapy, but the practitioner didn't place eyewear on me. How long after therapy would I notice damage to my eyes?
Intense Pulse Light Therapy - 8 months ago2 answers
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?
