IPL treatments take about 60 minutes. Results visible after 4 to 6 treatments. You may feel a slight stinging sensation during treatments and your skin will feel red and sensitive for a few hours following treatments. After an IPL treatment, you may experience age spots and freckles looking darker for the first 3 – 7 days, which is normal. They may appear to look like “coffee grounds” and these will begin to flake off in 7 – 10 days. There is no down-time, and makeup can be worn immediately after treatment. It is recommended to wear SPF and to stay out of the sun during the duration of the treatment.
IPL can be used on the face, hands, neck, chest, legs, back, arms, and shoulders to treat areas of concern.
