Frequently Asked Questions
Before treatment, a cold mist is usually applied to the area to be treated, and you may be given dark glasses to shield your eyes from the bright light.
During treatment, the smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is gently applied to your skin, delivering pulses of light to the area being treated. IPL treatments are usually considered pain-free, but an anesthetic cream can be used if you find the light pulses at all uncomfortable. Treatment sessions usually last about 20 minutes, and a complete program usually includes four to six sessions.
After treatment, you can return to your normal routines and activities immediately. Occasionally, there may be signs of treatment such as redness or blotchiness that can last from a few hours to a few days. You will see gradual improvement from each session, resulting in a dramatic improvement by the end of your treatment program. Results are long-lasting, usually a year or longer. The treated skin is more sunsensitive for two to three weeks and is not usually done when people have a tan.
