Frequently Asked Questions

Does IPL treatment hurt?

The treatment feels warm, but we take care to ensure our clients are comfortable by using our advanced Zimmer Cryo chiller.

How do I look after IPL treatment, and is there any down time?

Dark spots get darker and the redness becomes more pronounced immediately. However, you may apply make-up and return to your daily routine, if you like. There is no downtime.

How many treatments are needed?

All treatment regimens are personalized. While a complete course typically consists of three to six treatments, each scheduled three to four weeks apart, a difference can be seen with the very first treatment.

Does it work?

It is highly effective for the right candidate. Please call for a complimentary consultation where we will be happy to personalize an IPL treatment schedule for you.

Which areas can be treated with IPL?

The face, neck, chest and hands can all benefit. IPL treatment is effective virtually anywhere sun damage shows.
