IPL photofacial treatments are fairly short, generally taking around 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
IPL is a fairly gentle laser treatment that requires only minimal downtime. Patients can feel free to resume their daily activities immediately following a treatment, although their skin may be red or swollen for a few days.
This redness can be safely covered with makeup, however.
The M22 IPL module has built-in cooling technology as well as OPT, or optimal pulse technology.
OPT allows for customized, gentle treatments where the pulse shape can be controlled. The wavelengths can be controlled as well, in order to optimize treatment for specific skin concerns.
The cooling technology in addition to a cooling gel applied before treatment means that IPL photo-facials are as comfortable as possible for our patients.
At Aesthetically Pleasing we always hold our patients’ comfort and satisfaction in the highest regard, and will do our very best to achieve optimal results in the most relaxing manner.
