IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) FAQ

What is IPL and how does it work?

IPL is used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to provide skin enhancements for theraputic and aesthetic purposes. IPL can be used for a range of treatments including hair removal, photo rejuvenation, and to ease common skin issues such as acne. IPL is effective and non invasive, making it a popular and affordable treatment.

Who is a good candidate for IPL?

If you suffer from blotchy, sun damaged or discolored skin an IPL photo facial would be beneficial to you. If you have large pores, freckles, or wrinkles you would also benefit from an IPL treatment. IPL is quick, and requires no down time which makes it a convenient option for many people. 


If you have a darker skin color you could experience changes in skin pigmentation after an IPL treatment. If you are of African American, Greek or Italian descent a consultation with a doctor beforehand discussing possible side effects is a good idea. If you are using Accutane, you must stop using the drug for six months before an IPL treatment. Pregnant women should also refrain from using the treatment.

How long will IPL last?

The average length of an IPL treatment is up to a year if the appropriate steps for improvements are continued. Appropriate steps include, wearing sunscreen and assuring the treated area is covered for at least two weeks.

What medications or treatments should I avoid before an IPL treatment?

A skin care specialist will examine your skin before an IPL treatment and inform you of things to expect. If you suffer from skin conditions such as inflammatory acne or eczema let your skin care specialist know ahead of time as it may affect the healing process. Things to avoid before an IPL treatment include:


- 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 an IPL Treatment?

The area that is treated will appear red and be sensitive for a few hours after the treatment. Many patients have referred to the feeling as a sunburn. The treated area may be slightly swollen for the first few hours. These side effects will continue a few days after the initial treatment. Hot water should be avoided until the treated area heals.

Is an IPL treatment painful?

The majority of patients experience little or no pain during the treatment. Many patients have described the feeling of the light pulses similar to gentle "snaps" of a rubber band.
