What is IPL?
Women and men who are concerned about the look of sun damage or pigmentation in their complexion can be excellent candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments at Ohio Rejuv. A photofacial with IPL is a rejuvenating skin treatment for hyperpigmentation issues on the face and neck. A member of our staff sends intense pulses of light energy to start the natural regeneration process and increase the production of collagen. As the added nutrients take effect, you should begin to see a healthier appearance, a more even tone, and decreased areas of hyperpigmentation. Although IPL is not an invasive procedure, it can be very effective and can create impressive results for your skin. Our Westerville, OH team uses Harmony XL PRO technology from Alma Lasers to complete IPL treatments and can provide a skin assessment to determine if this solution can help you achieve your skin goals.
How much does IPL cost?
Your skin is unique, so your cost for IPL therapy will vary based on your specific condition. Ohio Rejuv commonly offers special deals at times, and we accept an array of easy payment options. At your initial consultation, your technician can estimate your cost and explain the number of appointments required to optimize your results.
How quick are the results from IPL?
Visible improvements can generally be seen after each Harmony XL PRO IPL treatment, but final results typically develop around one month after your last treatment. It's common for you to see different responses following every treatment. You will likely experience a fading of blotchiness, redness, and spots (age, brown, and sun) as time goes on.
What are the possible side effects of IPL?
It's common to have mild side effects, like temporary redness, swelling, blisters, bruising, or crusting. These symptoms go away in a few days. You will be extra sensitive to the sun, and sun exposure will impact the results of the procedure. You should also wear sunscreen to help avoid skin issues, including redness and sun spots.
Do I need to prep for IPL?
Westerville, OH patients preparing to receive IPL therapy are usually asked to avoid sun exposure and self-tanners for at least 2 – 4 weeks prior to the appointment. You may be asked to stop using minocycline, tetracycline, doxycycline, or Retin-A/Renova a few days prior to each treatment, and we may recommend that you avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications and blood thinners one week before your appointment to help prevent developing bruises. You also need to protect the treated areas with sunscreen between sessions.
Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
A full series of IPL photo rejuvenation is recommended to produce gradual enhancements in the quality of your complexion. Every treatment will help to diminish sun spots and hyperpigmentation. A series of treatments also produces longer-lasting aesthetic improvements.
