IPL Photorejuvenation FAQs

How does IPL Photorejuvenation work?

IPL works on the theory of photothermolysis, which means the light device breaks down the targeted abnormal pigment and redness on the superficial layers of your skin.

What does the IPL procedure feel like?

Overall, IPL or Intense Pulsed Light treatment is a gentle procedure which feels like a quick warm snap when the light energy is delivered to the skin.

What results can I expect from IPL treatments?

Clearance of abnormal brown pigmentation and reduced redness with brighter, smoother, rejuvenated, healthy skin.

How many IPL treatments will I need?

For optimal results, you will need a series of four to six treatments, spaced four weeks apart.

How do I prepare myself for IPL Photorejuvenation treatment?

It is strongly recommended to wear a hat and sunscreen lotion when outdoors. Hot showers, hot baths and saunas must be avoided for 24 hours before your IPL treatment, as well as anything that generates heat in the skin, like exercise, cooking over a high heat, etc.

What happens after my IPL treatment?

If the skin is broken or a blister appears, keep the area lubricated to prevent crusting or scabbing of tissue, and contact the clinic. Cold packs, Aloe vera or any other cooling preparation may be used to ease temporary discomfort.

Prolonged sun exposure should be avoided for four weeks before treatment and for four weeks following treatment, and sun block should be applied. If further IPL treatment is needed, a commitment to stay out of the sun is necessary. If there is direct sun exposure, there are certain complications that may occur that should be discussed fully. Makeup can be applied as long as the skin is not broken. Makeup can also serve as an additional sun block if it contains an SPF.
