Q & A about IPL treatments for Pigmented Lesions and Rosacea

Q: How does the treatment work on superficial blood vessels?

A: The applied IPL - DPC (pulsed light) is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin in the blood within the vessel, causing the blood to coagulate and the vessel to break up into particles that are naturally filtered away through the lymphatic system of the body. 

Q: How does the treatment work on pigmented lesions? 

A: Targeted areas absorb the applied light, breaking the pigmented lesion into tiny particles which then disappear or rise to the surface of the skin as scabs. Which naturally exfoliate within 1 - 2 weeks

Q: How many treatments are required? 

A: They typical regimen is an average of 6 treatment sessions, spaced 6 weeks apart.

  • Avoid sun exposure or the use of tanning beds and self tanners for at least four to eight weeks (depending on the skin type), prior and/or between IPL treatments.
  • Report all skin diseases, viruses, infections, cold sores, eczema or allergies.
  • Do not exfoliate, use glycolic acid, benzyl peroxide or any other skin irritants two weeks prior to treatment.

  • Avoid swimming in strong chlorinated water immediately before an IPL treatment.


Post-Treatment Precautions for best results

  • Avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds or self tanners for at least 2 weeks after a treatment. Apply Sun Protective Cream, 15 minutes prior to sun exposure and 15 minutes afterwards. Keep reapplying as needed throughout the day. Consider using protective cotton gloves for driving, a hat to protect facial areas.
  • If there are scabs or blisters, make-up should not be used for 3-4 days.
  • For at least two weeks post treatment, do not use harsh topical (exfoliators, glycolic acid, benzyl peroxide, acne creams etc.).
  • Avoid touching, rubbing, peeling or picking of the skin as this may cause hyper/hypo - pigmentation or scarring.
  • In some cases, prolonged redness or blistering may occur. An antibiotic ointment may be applied to the affected areas twice a day until healed.
  • For 1 week, avoid hot baths, showers, hot tubs and saunas. When showering, and washing, gently pat dry and do not rub.
