What is IPL?
Intense pulsed light consists of multiple pulses of light energy of varying wavelengths. The light is delivered in two-second pulses and shatters discoloration, such as redness or age spots, and treats lines and lesions. IPL treatments are noninvasive and are safe for most skin types and tones.
What issues can be treated with IPL?
IPL treatments are effective on a number of common skin complaints. These include:
- Rosacea and redness
- Broken capillaries and visible blood vessels
- Age spots and sun spots
The areas of your body most responsive to IPL treatments include the face, neck and décolleté. Discuss your aesthetic concerns with Dr. Cellucci and her staff, and they can recommend the right treatment plan for you.
What happens before and during IPL treatment?
Prior to IPL treatment, it’s imperative that you cease all use of Retin-A products and stay out of the sun for at least two weeks. You must also refrain from using Accutane for two months prior to IPL treatment.
You should arrive at Jeuvani Spa and Sculpting with a freshly washed face and no makeup, sunscreen, or lotion. You’ll feel the IPL pulses as hot and sharp, but most people find the session tolerable and don’t require oral or topical painkillers. But you are welcome to arrive 30 minutes early and have a topical anesthetic applied to help relieve the discomfort of the treatment.
What should I expect following IPL treatment?
Treated areas will actually get darker in the 1-4 days following IPL treatment and then gradually slough off. You can return to work the day after IPL treatment and may use makeup to even out your complexion. Depending on your results, you may prefer to lie low for a few days due to your post-treatment appearance.
How soon will I see positive results from IPL treatment?
You’ll start to notice results over 7 to 10 days as collagen and elastin production accelerates in response to the IPL treatment. Even though you’ll see benefits after just one treatment, you may prefer the results you get after a series of 2-4 sessions. Dr. Cellucci and the staff suggest you schedule these one month apart. She creates a customized plan to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
