I'm pregnant. Is it safe to get IPL?

Tags:woman age 25-34 breast feeding pregnancy safety

I had planned to start my IPL treatments this spring but I just found out that I'm a little over three weeks pregnant and now I don't know what to do. I'm getting IPL for rosacea. Even though my rosacea is ever-present, it's pretty mild. Unfortunately, rosacea can worsen during pregnancy. If it's safe for me to have the IPL when I'm pregnant, then I'll definitely go ahead BUT if I'm told that it's absolutely NOT safe, I'll happily wait. Especially since the pregnancy can encourage the rosacea. If that's the case, I'd probably be way better off to wait and get the IPL after I deliver--unless there's a complication with breastfeeding? One thing at a time. No matter what, it'll be worth waiting for.
