What should I expect during and after IPL treatment?

During treatment you may be aware of a flash of light and a slight tingling that feels like a light elastic band sensation. You may experience slight redness and a slight warming of the skin which are both normal after treatment and usually subsides within a couple of hours.

Over the next 24-48 hours you may notice that any pigmented areas may appear darker however you can expect in the week following treatment for the pigmented lesions to flake off. This results in an evening of your skin tone. After treating the vascular lesions you may notice that the vein treated may blanch (appear whiter) and disappear or there may be a colour change in the vessel , this normally disappears within a few days.

You can expect to see an improvement in the skin after the first treatment, multiple treatments deliver even better results.

A treatment regime depends also depend on the  severity of skin damage and the nature of the condition that is being treated. Ie vascular or sun damage.

How quickly I expect to see results?

Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple Photofacial sessions will improve the final results. For vascular treatments results can be seen immediately.

Are there any side effects?

Most clients do not experience any side effects and any redness from the treatment  will usually resolve within a few hours. You may be more sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment, therefore we recommend avoiding sunbathing, sunbeds and to wear sun protection.
