Have More Concerns About Intense Pulsed Light?

Recovery

You will experience little to no downtime after your IPL treatment since it is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure. Most patients can return to their daily activities immediately following treatment. You may experience minimal redness following the treatment that will dissipate after a few days. Sun protection is crucial and is highly recommended after each treatment session for optimal results.

Results

It is recommended to seek more than one intense pulsed light treatment to receive optimal results. The results of your treatment will be long lasting with return visits once or twice a year for touch-up sessions.

Pain

Patients often experience very little pain with IPL treatments. Skin creams can be applied to individuals with sensitive skin who are concerned about experiencing redness and swelling after the treatment.

Cost

The cost of your intense pulsed light treatment could range widely depending on the condition being treated and the size of the treatment area. During your consultation, Dr. Sand will provide you with a cost estimate to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
