The cost of IPL treatment is largely dependent on the size of area to be treated. The larger the area, the longer it takes and greater the cost.
The price of IPL has dropped significantly over the recent years, as such devices are becoming common place in beauty establishments and clinics. It is pretty much standard equipment for any aesthetic provider. As such, the prices are extremely competitive. However, the quality of the machine can vary tremendously, and inferior machines can result in either poor results or in extreme circumstances, burns.
It is probably worth having IPL done by an experienced doctor so, as careful assessment is critical to ensure the setting are correct, to get good effects and reduce the risk of unwanted side effects.
