Does IPL for men remove facial hair?

If a man is being treated with IPL for rosacea will it also remove his facial hair? He is clean shaven but does not want his beard gone.

I don't think IPL removes hair. Better to ask someone that does that.

It could possibly kill some follicles if beard is dark.? It depends on depth of penetration of IPL and wavelength.
