During the procedure, you may feel a pinching sensation, which can be overcome by using a local anesthetic or chilling gel.
The length and number of sessions needed depends on each individual’s treatment plan. It can take up to several weeks to notice the results of photorejuvenation treatments.
Make sure your skin is clean. Don't apply any lotions, creams or makeup before your session, and remove all jewelery around the area being treated. Discontinue use of any irritating or exfoliating products 2-3 days before your appointment, and avoid tanning. Depending on which area is being treated, you may be advised to shave the area on the day of your treatment.
Swelling and redness may occur following your procedure. You may also experience some redness and slight warmth emanating from the treatment area for the first 24 hours post-treatment, like a mild sunburn. This is a normal part of your skin’s healing response.
You can return to your regular activities immediately. It is best to avoid hot baths, saunas, Jacuzzis, and pools for the first 2 days following treatment, as it could cause an infection. If possible, avoid applying ice or cooling compresses to the treated area, as the heat emanating from the skin is the body’s natural healing response.
You can apply moisturizer and sunscreen regularly after your treatment. Using sunscreen regularly is the first line of defense against fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage.
I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?
IPL photorejuvenation treatments work best for light to medium skin tones. Please book a consultation with us to see if the treatment is right for you.
Can I do it during my lunch break?
Treatments are usually quick, depending on what part of the body you’re getting treated. If it’s a smaller area, it may only take as little as 15-30 minutes. A larger area, like two full legs, may take up to 60 minutes.
How many sessions will I need to see results?
Most patients receive 3-5. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.
