Intense Pulsed Light Therapy May be Dangerous

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL) is used to remedy a myriad of skin conditions, but it can also cause adverse side effects if clinicians do not closely follow instructions, the Food and Drug Administration warns.

According to the FDA, IPL is safe and effective only when doctors properly follow instructions provided by the manufacturers. The agency has received reports of various complications - such as scarring, blisters, skin discolorations and second degree burns - when these measures were not taken.

IPL has been used to treat conditions such as sun damage, scars, freckles and spider veins. It is also used commonly to remove unwanted hair.
