What to do after IPL Skin Treatment
Have you ever looked at the mirror and realized that you’ve already lost your old self? We are not aware that our job as striving adults is gradually taking away most of our time that we hardly notice we’re already aging. It can get frustrating sometimes. But we can’t do anything about it because we prioritize what will benefit us in the long run. Most often, self-care has become last in the list.
But through the advancement in technology, we are now offered with new techniques that can restore our youthful glow. And one of the most successful among these techniques is the IPL Treatment. It is proven to be a fast, safe, and effective way to help clear most of our skin imperfections.
However, just like any other skin procedures, there are still things that people should consider post-treatment. It is pretty essential to know all of these to ensure optimum results.
How IPL Can Help You
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a type of light-based therapy. Its technology is widely-utilized by cosmetic and medical practitioners in performing a variety of skin treatments for several purposes. These include hair removal and skin rejuvenation. Specifically, IPL can deal with the following skin conditions:
- Fine lines
- Age Spots
- Sun damage
- Varicose veins
- Broken capillaries
- Facial hairs, and unwanted hair growth on other parts of the body
- And many more
The treatment is non-invasive and non-ablative. This means that you won’t be undergoing any intense procedures that may cause an uncomfortable feeling. In fact, IPL requires no recovery time. It allows you to continue whatever you’re doing after the treatment. Also, the treatment session is fast. You can easily fit this with your busy schedule without any hassle.
Though we already know that IPL is safe and effective, it is still our responsibility to take extra precautions after the treatment. Take note of these pieces of advice to maximize your IPL benefits:
After an IPL treatment, your skin can get a little sensitive. Therefore, being exposed to the sun for a long time can be harsh to the skin. So, it is important always to wear your sunscreen because there are instances that we can’t avoid doing activities outdoors. Also, you can use cover-ups like large brimmed hats.
There’s a little chance that your skin may dry and peel after the treatment. So to keep your skin smooth, apply a thick moisturizer to your skin regularly.
After your IPL Treatment, you can go back to your regular skin care routine. However, be sure to be gentle when touching the treated area for at least a few days. Don’t apply to much pressure on it to avoid unwanted sensations or complications.
Make the most out of your IPL Treatment!
IPL is one great way to help you maintain young and healthy-looking skin. Not only that your beautiful skin will be restored, but also your confidence. To attain maximum results, always remember to have a proper skin care routine post-treatment. It’ll be better to consult a professional in order to determine what’s good from what’s not.
