What Should I Expect?
IPL treatment works with your skin to remove your imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fiber production over a sequence of treatments. Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots can be cleared with as few as 1-2 treatments. Typically 2-6 sessions, with 2-4 weeks in between, are required to achieve optimal results for most skin concerns.
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment settings. The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. In most cases, makeup may be immediately applied, and daily activities can be resumed the very same day. Typically your physician should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few weeks following treatment, and to always apply sun screen.
How Does It Work?
The IPL technology allows treatment of pigmentation and vascular imperfections, while improving overall skin appearance. Stellar M22 IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology enables your clinician to customize the treatment according to your skin type and desired results, with maximum safety. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner. The body’s natural process then removed the treated tissue, while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.
To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should typically apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and/or use air cooling during treatment. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the last is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
