Step 1 – Free Initial Consultation
Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where the details about you medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a patch test 24 hours before treatment.
Step 2 – The Treatment
With IPL a layer of chilled gel is applied to the treatment area. The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulsed light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighboring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The chilled gel is removed and aloe Vera and an SPF is applied. During the treatment protective eye wear will be provided. Most clients describe the discomfort as mild and tolerable and no anesthesia is required.
Step 3– Recovery
The treated area may feel warm and sensitive for the first few days post treatment.
Step 4 – Aftercare
No sun exposure for up to 30 days prior to treatment.
No fake tan or gradual tan for 10 days prior to treatment
No use of topical retinol products to be used in the treated area 3 days prior to treatment.
We recommend 6 sessions 2 weeks apart for best results.
