I have Lupus, can I have IPL hair removal?
I have lupus but for the last two years I haven't taken any medication and so far had very few problems/flares. It only affects my joints in my fingers (mild pain) and I haven't had any photo-sensitivity whilst on or off medication. I've never had any problem with the sun/my skin or anything like that. I suffer badly from ingrown hairs so can't wax and I even struggle with shaving, so I've wanted laser/IPL hair removal for years now. Am I able to have IPL hair removal even with lupus? Would the IPL cause any other side effects other than maybe flaring up my lupus?
