How an IPL Treatment Works
Prior to the treatment, your IPL specialist will apply a cooling gel to the surface of your face to protect your healthy skin cells and ensure you are completely comfortable during the entire procedure.
Although IPL treatments are typically performed without anesthetic, if you have particularly sensitive skin, you may be given a mild sedative to assist with any pain. You will discuss this in your consultation.
Once it’s time for the treatment to begin, your IPL specialist will use a special handpiece to gently deliver the IPL to the correct treatment area. The light will treat any imperfections on your face and cause the underlying layer of collagen to expand. With each pulse of light, your skin will receive exactly what it needs to look and feel great. IPL treatments are usually completed in 30 minutes.
When the pulses of light are applied to your skin, you may face some stinging and discomfort. The good news is that our cooling gel will help alleviate some of this and make the treatment more tolerable.
