PhotoFacial/IPL Pre & Post Instructions


Before your treatment:

  1. Please remove make-up and skin care products prior to your treatment.
  2. If you wear contacts and choose to remove them prior to your treatment, please bring your own supplies to do so.
  3. Avoid any irritants to your skin, such as products containing Retin-A, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents, and scrubs for 1-2 days prior to your treatment.
  4. Do not wax or use a depilatory on treatment areas one week prior to your treatment.
  5. Avoid tanning or tanning beds for approximately 4 weeks prior to treatment. If you are in the sun, we recommend sun protection of SPF 30 or higher. Sunburned skin cannot be treated.

 

After your treatment:

  1. Erythema and swelling are common side effects. A red or pink hue can persist like a moderate sunburn. Swelling may be more noticeable on the second day.
  2. Treated lentigines usually darken after treatment, and crusting begins to form within a few days. This crusting usually resolves in 1-3 weeks. It should be allowed to naturally flake off. If significant crusting occurs beyond the normal flaking of the treated lesions, an antibiotic ointment such as Polysporin or Bacitracin may be recommended.
  3. Avoid tanning or tanning beds for approximately 1 weeks prior to treatment. If you are in the sun, we recommend sun protection of SPF 30 or higher.
  4. Avoid any irritants to your skin, such as any products containing Retin-A,retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents, scrubs, or Vitamin C for one week.
  1. Do not wax, tweeze, or use a depilatory to the treated area for one week.
