Immediately after an IPL photofacial, your skin may appear blotchy, red, slightly swollen, and you may notice sunspots or darkening of pigmentation. There is also usually a feeling that the skin is tightened or a mild sunburn. However, you can use makeup/SPF after this treatment because there is no exposed skin!

Lumecca (ipl treatments)

It’s best to always follow your provider’s post-treatment instructions, but in general, below are some post-IPL dos and don’ts:

None! IPL treatment does not open the skin or cause scarring. In fact, you can apply SPF and make-up immediately after the treatment. IPL works through targeted light therapy to reduce age/sun spots, freckles, pigmentation, red spots and capillaries. The light energy is converted into heat energy for the target cells, which destroys the damaged cells and regenerates new cells.

As previously mentioned, your skin may feel tight and sunburned for a few hours after the treatment. As for “annoying,” the answer is usually no. However, everyone has different pain tolerance, but in general your skin may become more sensitive and tight, but you should not feel any pain.

Yes, you can apply any color makeup or SPF immediately after the treatment. In fact, your provider should apply an SPF 30+ mineral to protect your skin from the sun before you leave. As for using makeup after treatment is a personal choice! If desired, make-up can also be applied to cover all stages of recovery.

Your skin texture will be tight and dry after IPL. Also, around day 2 to 7, you may notice a rough or rough texture as the skin sheds dark pigments. Most people experience dry skin and darkening of pigmentation, also known as “coffee grounds”. After a full 7-10 days, your skin texture should look smooth and healthy.

Since IPL does not open the skin, there are very few things to avoid after the treatment. It is important to follow your aftercare’s instructions, but it is generally best to avoid the following:

Other than that, the post-IPL treatment is as usual, making these treatments a “use” for many people.

For best results, we recommend using a gentle cleanser, moisturizer and an SPF 30+ mineral until the skin is completely healed, after which you can return to your normal skincare routine. Also, wash the skin with cold water and avoid all active ingredients such as retinol, AHA/BHA and sand exfoliators until the skin is completely healed, approx. 7-10 days.

Dark pigmentation or spots that often look like coffee grounds take about 7 to 10 days to fade or disappear. But everyone is different, so some may take longer to fade than others. It’s best to talk to your provider to get a realistic time frame based on your treatment and follow post-treatment instructions.

The results of an IPL are gradual. You will not see improvement immediately, the fastest you will see a positive change in your skin is 7-10 days after the treatment. Final results are usually visible around 4 weeks after treatment.

In general, it takes 7-10 days for the skin to heal from IPL. This is different for each person and their aesthetic concerns (why they get IPL in the first place). Blow is a general daily IPL pigmentation timeline that can help as a guide or reference:

What To Expect After An IPL:

IPL results are essentially permanent! That is, if we were never to go out and never grow old. So as you naturally age and live (regardless of how much SPF you use) you will get sun/age spots and pigmentation. It is best to do a series of 3-6 IPLs and then complete maintenance treatments in between. If you struggle with pigmentation or sun spots, click the button below to learn more about the condition.

It depends on your aesthetic concerns (baseline) and your goals. It is usually best to have a series of 3-6 4 weeks apart and then have maintenance IPL treatments to maintain your skin results. But talk to a provider to see what your individual treatment plan will be!

IPL treatments are also known for their skin tightening effect. How? The light that is not absorbed by the pigment spreads throughout the skin and actually heats the water in the tissue, creating a collagen-stimulating effect. This collagen-stimulating effect can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles over time and generally tighten tissue. IPL can be performed on any part of the body (eg neck, chest, arms, legs)!

IPL skin rejuvenation works by delivering pulsed light energy to pigment spots on your skin. IPL focus allows precise removal of age spots without damaging the surrounding skin. The best thing about IPL treatment is that it does not require anesthesia. The versatility of IPL makes it a great option for removing blemishes on the face, chest, arms, legs and hands – almost anywhere on the body!

IPL light is more diffuse and less focused than laser. IPL penetrates the second layer of your skin (dermis) without damaging the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin. Pigment cells in your skin absorb light energy, which is converted into heat. Heat destroys unwanted pigment to remove freckles and other blemishes.

Pigmentation affects many people. Although some types of pigmented lesions are present at birth, pigmentation is often one of the first signs of aging. This is why many people are interested in removing pigmentation. At the Skin and Laser Surgery Center, we help remove the visible signs of skin aging with laser light therapy against sun damage and age spots. Our lasers deliver visible results quickly and are a powerful therapeutic alternative to microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

Laser pigmentation reduces dark spots and redness on your face and body. Areas of IPL treatment include age spots, sun damage, sun lenses, freckles, skin redness and facial redness.

You should be able to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. The treated skin area will be red and sensitive for a few hours, as if you were sunburned. Your skin may also be slightly swollen. Your skin will be sensitive for a few days after the procedure. You may need to avoid using hot water in the treatment area until the skin heals.

A few days after treatment, you may notice small brown spots that look like coffee grounds. This is normal and the spots will eventually disappear.

Each IPL skin rejuvenation treatment lasts 15 to 60 minutes. We remove all make-up, sunscreen and face creams. Men are asked to shave before entering the treatment day. Eye shields will be used to protect the eyes. A cool soothing gel is applied to the skin before the treatment to help reduce discomfort. In addition, cold air is blown over the skin to cool the surface and help with any discomfort.
