Hi Bon,
Thanks for writing in.

IPL stands Intense pulse light.It is a light system with high energy.
You will have full skin recovery .It can be hyperpigmented initially.It will become normal coloured.
It will take around 2-3 weeks for getting back normal.Also the color will get even.

Dont be sad.Everything will be normal in week or two.

Hope this helps.
