Question: A client asked me if there is any risk to the lymph nodes when using IPL

Asked by PaolaEnergya 4 years ago

One of my massage clients who is having IPL told me she refuses to have laser on armpits and bikini for concerns of potential damage to the lymph nodes. I believe IPL is totally safe. What are your thoughts?

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)

There is no problem with IPL treatments reaching the depth of lymph nodes - so it is perfectly safe for your client. The light only penetrates to the depth of the hair that it is treating - in the case of underarms about 4mm. The lymph glands are at least 1cm below. Also the light will only go where there is pigment - no pigment in the glands. Hope this helps.
