IPL Treatment Details
You will need to avoid sun exposure and tanned skin when planning to undergo an IPL treatment. In addition, refrain from taking any antibiotics or photosensitizing medications that may make you extra sensitive to UV rays. Do not use any retinol products for one week prior to your appointment.
Before treatment, we will cleanse your skin and give you a topical numbing cream if needed. We will also give you protective eyewear and apply a cool gel that will help you stay comfortable during treatment, as well as helping to conduct the light energy to the skin more effectively. Your specialist will pass the handheld device over the skin, delivering the pulses of light deeply into the skin. This intense pulsed light energy is absorbed into precise targeted areas of the skin without damaging any of the surrounding healthy skin. If the sensation starts to get too warm, we encourage you to let us know. We can always pause for a little icing of the area. IPL treatment time is usually takes 15-30 minutes, but this will vary from patient to patient.
The amount of treatments you will need will depend on how severe your lesions are. Our specialists will help design a customized treatment plan specifically for your skin.
