WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?
You will have ample time to discuss with your dermal therapist any of your concerns and any conditions you would like to improve. Depending on the area, we will start by removing any possible dirt and oils from the skin, apply a cooling ultrasound gel and then to perform the treatment. Depending on the treatment you are having, your treatment will take approximately 45-60 minutes. Each specific concern will have a recommended course of treatments.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY TREATMENT?
You can resume your daily activities, ensuring you wear an SPF and follow any after-care advice given to you post treatment. There may be a slight sunburn feeling, which may last for up for 8 hours post treatment. We suggest applying a cold pack to the area or aloe-vera gel.
IS THIS TREATMENT SAFE?
Yes, there are precautions that have to be taken when working on the face and close to the eyes. Slight flashing in the eyes may occur but won’t last long. Patients eyes will be covered to protect them. Any existing raised lesions cannot be treated. IPL works under a broad-spectrum light so we will cover eyebrows and protect the hair line. We highly recommend that you are not exposed to long periods of sun 2 weeks prior to commencing your treatment.
