WHAT IS IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) & HOW DOES IT WORK?

The treatment can also be used for hair removal, photo rejuvenation, as well as to alleviate dermatologic diseases like acne. It is a popular treatment because its effective, affordable, and non-invasive.

AM I A GOOD CANADIATE FOR IPL?

People who have blotchy, sun-damaged, or discolored skin, or whose skin is affected by large pores, freckles, or wrinkles, may benefit from an IPL photofacial. The procedure is also quick and involves no downtime, making it a convenient option for people with busy schedules. 


People with tanned or naturally dark skin sometimes experience changes in skin pigmentation after IPL photofacial treatment. African-Americans and people of Greek and Italian descent, for example, may wish to discuss possible side effects with a dermatologist before opting for this procedure. Additionally, people who are taking the medication Accutane® should not have an IPL photofacial until at least six months after they stop using the drug. Pregnant women should also postpone treatment until after they give birth.

HOW LONG WILL IPL LAST?

If the proper steps are taken to maintain the improvements, the results of your treatment may last up to a year or longer.


Though recovery is rapid, it is important to keep in mind that sunscreen is vital to ensuring the results of the procedure last as long as possible. Be sure to protect the treated area from the sun for at least a couple of weeks, either by covering the area or wearing strong sunscreen.

WHAT SHOULD I AVOID BEFORE IPL TREATMENT?

Before your IPL procedure, your skin care specialist will examine your skin and let you know what to expect. Let them know if you have any skin conditions that might affect healing after your treatment, such as inflammatory acne or eczema.


Things to Avoid:

- Direct sunlight 

- Tanning beds 

- Waxing 

- Chemical peels 

- Collagen injections 

- Drugs that increase your bleeding risk, such as aspirin (Ecotrin) and ibuprofen (Advil) 

- Creams or other products that contain vitamin A, such as RetinA, or glycolic acid

WHAT SHOULD I AVOID AFTER IPL TREATMENT?

You should be able to go right back to your regular activities. The treated area of skin will be red and sensitive for a few hours, as if you got sunburned. Your skin may be slightly swollen, too. Your skin will continue to be sensitive for a couple of days after the procedure. You may need to avoid using hot water on it until your skin heals.
