I had an IPL treatment on my chest, full arms, tops of shoulders and tops of hands yesterday for pigmentation (freckles). I have red hair, fair skin and dark hazel eyes. I burn relatively easily and never tan but freckle.
I was not given any after care advice following my ipl treatment but have been putting dermaid on the affected areas at night and QV moistouriser on during the day.
The skin on my hands is beginning to get the coffee granule look, the skin on my arms is getting bubbly (like the freckles are little bubbles, and the skin on my chest is looking very burnt. There are six rectangle head marks which are a greeny colour (I can't see any freckles in them) This morning my jumper brushed on on of the rectangles and a top layer of the skin came off there. Underneath the skin stings and is red but has a whitish centre. Will this definitely scar if I continue to moistourise it with QV/dermaid? Is there anything else I can do to minimise the scarring.
I am trying to keep the top layer of skin on the other five burn marks. Is it likely that these will also scar?
