FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CUTERA® IPL TREATMENT
WHAT IS A CUTERA IPL TREATMENT?
HOW DO CUTERA IPL® TREATMENTS WORK?
IPL treatments use intense pulsed light to break up excess pigmentation and discoloration in the skin. This intense pulsed light energy addresses brown spots by targeting melanin particles, which then rise to the surface of your skin and flake away.
For red pigmentation (vascularity), such as spider veins or rosacea, it breaks down blood vessels near your skin’s surface, which the body then naturally absorbs.
It’s an effective, noninvasive way to address uneven coloration at the source so you can feel confident in makeup free skin..
WHAT CAN CUTERA® IPL BE USED FOR?
Cutera® IPL can be used for various skin concerns, including:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Spider veins
- Unwanted hair on the face and body
What are the treatment areas for CUTERA® IPL treatments?
Cutera IPL treatments can be safely administered on a wide range of areas on the body and face. Common treatment areas include:

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR CUTERA® IPL PHOTOFACIAL TREATMENTS?
The ideal candidate for IPL is someone seeking to address sun-damaged, hyperpigmented, or discolored skin in the aim of a more evenly tone skin. We commonly treat individuals presenting with freckles, age spots, rosacea, and other types of red and brown pigmentation. As the procedure stimulates collagen production within the skin, it also effectively deals with fine lines and rough skin texture. Patients suffering from broken capillaries and vascular lesions can also significantly benefit from this treatment. For those specifically concerned about melasma, we recommend our Lumecca IPL treatment.
IPL is a bit riskier for darker skin tones as it carries a higher chance of unwanted changes in skin pigmentation. If you’re taking Accutane, you’ll need to stop taking it 6 months before your treatment to avoid any negative side effects. If you’re looking to treat active acne or acne scars, you may want to give our Laser Genesis treatment a try.

Let your skin see the light with IPL. To get started, book an appointment online or call (855) 977-1982.
HOW LONG DOES A CUTERA® IPL TREATMENT TAKE?
The duration of the treatment will depend on the size of the area being treated, but can typical take about 45 minutes.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY CUTERA® IPL PHOTOFACIAL TREATMENT?
Things to avoid before an IPL treatment include:
- Direct sunlight
- Tanning beds
- Chemical peels
- Collagen injections
- Drugs that increase your bleeding risk, such as aspirin and ibuprofen
- Creams or other products that contain vitamin A, such as Retin A, or glycolic acid.
You should also let us know about any inflammatory skin conditions you may have that might affect your healing time.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS FOR CUTERA® IPL TREATMENTS?
For a few hours after your appointment, your skin will likely be pink, sensitive, and might be a bit swollen, like a mild sunburn. You’ll need to wear plenty of SPF and avoid direct sun exposure during the first couple of weeks as your skin will be especially sensitive to UV rays.
After a few days, you’ll notice your pigmented spots darkening even more. Don’t worry! Soon after this, they’ll naturally flake off and leave behind more a more evenly toned skin surface.
Overall a Cutera IPL photofacial may only result in minimal discomfort during recovery if patients adhere to their aftercare instructions.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU GET A CUTERA® IPL TREATMENT
The frequency of Cutera® IPL treatments depends on the individual’s skin type and the concern being treated. For best results, it is generally recommended to have a series of 3 - 6 treatments, spaced about a month apart. After the initial series, maintenance treatments every 6 - 12 months can help sustain the results.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CUTERA® IPL TREATMENT?
During a Cutera IPL treatment, a cooling gel is applied to the treatment area, and you'll be given dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. The IPL device is gently pressed onto your skin and a flash of light is emitted. Patients often report the sensation to the likes of a slight sting, like the snapping of a rubber band.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM A CUTERA® IPL TREATMENT
Results from a Cutera® IPL treatment can start to be seen within a week after the treatment, but the full effect often takes 3 - 5 treatments to show. The treated pigmented lesions will darken following treatment and naturally flake off over the course of one to two weeks.
POSSIBLE CUTERA® IPL TREATMENT SIDE EFFECTS
Possible side effects from Cutera® IPL treatments are generally mild and can include:
- Temporary redness or swelling
- Darkening or lightening of the skin (usually temporary)
- Blisters or burns (rare)
- Changes in skin color (rare)
- Mild discomfort during treatment
It's crucial to follow post-treatment care instructions to minimize potential side effects.

"The lower abdomen is less saggy and has reduced in size. It is obvious for me that there is a good improvement and loss in fat at the treated area.Paired with better diet and exercise, I am very satisfied with it and willing to go through the numbness and uncomfortable sensations."
~ Linsay C.
"I had Coolsculpting about 2 weeks ago on my inner thighs and arms. I’m and I was close to my ideal weight. I was told I would probably need 2 treatments in my thighs which was not surprising. I have seen a straighter inner thigh so far and it’s only been 2 weeks. My arms has had an ever so slightly result but again only 2 weeks. Absolutely no regrets."
~ Camilla G.
“I've always had a tough time with the fat in my flank area. No matter how much I worked out and dieted it seemed impossible. CoolSculpting was a pain free experience and in a matter of 8 weeks the fat in the area we targeted was gone. I reclaimed my feminine figure when liposuction just wasn't an option for me.”
~ Casey B.
