Post-IPL Instructions

Post-IPL Instructions:

  1. Sun protection including SPF 30+ sunscreen, and preferably a hat, are mandatory for at least 4 weeks after each treatment. Sun exposure within days or weeks of the procedure can cause significant long-lasting pigmentation in the areas treated with IPL. To maintain your results, sun protective measures should continue indefinitely as well as appropriate at home skincare.
  2. Makeup may be put on (gently) immediately after the procedure.
  3. Scrubs and facials should be avoided for 5 days but can be used gingerly to help remove the dissolving brown spots that appear to be flaking off the skin after 5 days.
  4. Glycolic acid, retinol, Retin A (tretinoin) and Renova creams may be restarted after 2 days.
