IPL Post Treatment Tips


Shortly after treatment area may be tender or slightly red and some may experience swelling.  This reaction usually disappears within a couple of hours.  In very sensitive skin types on sensitive areas blisters may occur if the skin is very sun damaged.  
You may feel completely normal on the exterior of the skin but please be aware that the heat from the IPL can stay in the skin for up to 48 hours so please avoid intense heat, sweating, hot water, friction etc.
If your skin feels hot or irritated, applying Aloe Vera Gel or Vitamin E Cream several times daily, skin will return to normal in a couple of days.  You may experience itching and anti-histamines may be taken.  These are all very rare occurrence in general. Please notify us if you experience this.
Avoid sun, swimming or extreme temperatures for 24 hours before and after treatment.  
Sunscreen must be worn on the face/neck/decolletage post treatment!
When showering on the day after your treatment, avoid any type of heat on the area treated, so please be aware of water temperature.  The treated area may be washed gently with a shower gel or cleanser.  The skin should be patted dry not rubbed.
