What should I expect?

  • Your skin will be pink after the treatment.
  • There is no significant down time after this treatment, you can go back to work on the same day, but no working out or wearing makeup until the day after treatment.
  • Your provider will apply a tinted SPF that will help with the redness.

Doctor’s Takeaways

  • If you are looking for fast results to clear your skin with minimal downtown then the IPL is the best way to go.
  • No gym (because you sweat) and no sun the day of. You will need to be careful of the sun after treatments and be good about wearing your SPF daily to protect your investment.
  • We recommend wearing a hat when you are in the sun!
  • Use a clean pillowcase the night after treatment.
