IPL Treatment Aftercare

  1. Immediately after the IPL treatments, there should be redness at the treatment area, which may last up to 2 hours or longer. It is normal for the treated area to feel like sunburn for a few hours. Apply an ice pack or chilled Aloe Vera gel every hour for 15 minutes every hour to sooth the treated area until symptoms subside. Darker pigmented people may have more discomfort than lighter skin people and may require the Aloe Vera gel or an antibiotic ointment longer.
  2. Makeup may be used after the IPL removal treatment, unless there is epidermal blistering. It is recommended to use new makeup to reduce the possibility of infection and wash your face before applying any make up. Just make sure that you have moisturizer on under your makeup. In fact, moisturize frequently and freely on the treated area. Any moisturizer without alpha hydroxy acids will work.
  3. Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of dark or light spots for 2 days. Use sunscreen SPF 30 or higher at all times throughout the treatment.
  4. Avoid using skin irritants (Retin-A, Benzyl Peroxide, glycolic acid, chemical peels for two weeks post treatment and for two weeks prior to subsequent treatments).
  5. Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin.
  6. You may shower(warm water only) after the IPL hair removal treatments, and use soap, shower gel etc.DO NOT use hot water or "soak" in the tub. Avoid Saunas, Jacuzzis or strenuous exercise for 48 hours. The treated area may be washed gently with a mild soap. Skin should be patted dry and NOT rubbed.
