What To Expect After Treatment
Immediate after-effects, if any, are minor. They may include redness and swelling, which disappear in a short time. The darkened pigmented lesions will remain on the skin for approximately 1-2 weeks until they flake off. Patients are usually able to return immediately to thier activities. You can apply make-up to the skin to cover the darkened lesions.
Does IPL laser treatment hurt?
This treatment has minimal discomfort. Most patients do not require any topical numbing prior to treatment.
Preparing for Treatment?
Avoid tanning or significant sun exposure and the use of photosensitizing medications (such as tetracycline or doxycycline) before a treatment, as this may exaggerate the skin response to treatment. We also recommended to discontinue skin care products (such as Retin-A or Salicylic Acid) one week prior to treatment as this may make your skin more sensitive to the treatment.
