Caring for your skin after IPL Photorejuvenation/Photofacial: What to expect and avoid immediately after the IPL Photorejuvenation.
Congratulations: You did it. Now you can relax and enjoy your radiant looks in a few days. Yes, a few days…
Immediately after the IPL Photorejuvenation procedure, please do not be surprised to note following skin changes:
Call our office immediately if blistering, crusting or scabbing develops-an unlikely event. Apply a thin layer of antibiotic ointment, such as bacitracin, to the area twice a day until the skin heals. Do not pick or try to remove scabs that form following your treatment, as this may invite infection or scarring.
It is important to realize that recovery time varies greatly among individuals.
Though most physical side-effects will subside within 48 hours, patients may find that the blemishes on their skin darken for a period of up to two weeks.
Why? The skin needs to the shed for the IPL results to be visible. Eventually, skin blemishes will fade to a lighter appearance than before the treatment-a perfectly natural process.
We will be delighted to see you again. Performing IPL & other procedures at regular intervals are the New Skin Care Regime. Time, although invisible, is reflected on our face…
