At your IPL pigmentation appointment
IPL pigmentation treatments usually take around 20 minutes including preparing the skin pre-treatment, and aftercare procedures.
First, we gently cleanse to remove makeup, then apply a room temperature ultra-sound gel to the skin. You will also be asked to wear protective eye goggles.
Most clients describe IPL as uncomfortable, rather than painful, comparing the treatment to a rubber band snapping against the skin for a brief second, combined with a feeling of warmth.
Your skin will be a little red immediately after your treatment so we apply a soothing room temperature aloe vera gel.
We then apply a sunscreen. Avoiding sun exposure during and after IPL treatment is essential, so always wear a high SPF, and if you are outside we recommend you wear a hat and seek out the shade.
