What To Expect at a Los Angeles IPL Photofacial Treatment Appointment
IPL uses very bright pulses of light to repair or improve aging or damaged skin. After a consultation, Dr. Mark Yousseff and team will assess your specific skin needs and prescribe an exact treatment plan. Treatments generally last for 20 to 30 minutes with a minimum of 3 to 4 weeks between each, for best results.
Typically, more than one treatment will be necessary, but it all depends on your skin type and how your skin responds to the treatments. Your ultimate goals for your skin will also determine how many treatments you will need.
IPL Photofacial Recovery After Treatment
Like most laser skin treatments, IPL photofacials require some healing time for possible redness, swelling, bruising or crusting, all of which typically resolve themselves with proper care and time.
The team at Younique recommends these actions after photofacial rejuvenation treatment:
- Keep your skin hydrated with gentle moisturizers
- Gently wash your face twice each day with mild facial cleansers
- Apply makeup sparingly and remove very gently until healing is complete
- Regularly use sunscreen protection (30 SPF or stronger) and avoid any sun exposure for one month where your face is not protected by sunscreen or covered.
- Avoid hot showers for 2-3 days after treatment
- Opt for a facial treatment to clean and hydrate skin at about the 2-3 week mark
- Avoid scratching the face after treatment until healing is complete
Is Photofacial Therapy Safe?
IPL is a safe procedure that has little known side effects. Slight swelling of the treated area can occur, but is temporary. Rarely, some individuals develop bruising, but again, this is only temporary.
Photofacial Side Effects
IPL side effects are similar to those associated with a Botox® treatment. Local numbness, swelling, bruising, or a burning sensation during the treatment are common. These side effects, however, can be mitigated by placing ice on the skin before and after the procedure, and are mild and go away quickly.
