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 excellent results, sun protective measures should continue indefinitely.
  2. Make-up may be put on gently immediately after the procedure.
  3. Scrubs and facials should be avoided for 5 days, but then can be used gingerly to help remove the dissolving brown age spots that appear to be flaking off the skin.
  4. Glycolic, retinol, Retin A (tretinoin) and Renova creams may be restarted after 2 days.
