What Is the Treatment Process Like?
An Initial Consultation
The first step of your treatment will be a consult with a member of our staff. You will discuss your concerns, medical history and any medications you are taking. We will also ask about your goals for treatment. We will then examine the area to be treated and determine if this treatment is the best option. If so, we will discuss the treatment and answer any questions and provide you with care instructions.
On the Day
We perform this treatment here in our beautiful Bourbonnais office. We’ll ask that you come in with a clean, makeup-free face. We use a handheld device to distribute wavelengths of light onto your skin, carefully targeting the areas you’ve cited as being problematic. The process takes about 15-20 minutes and treatments are typically performed in a series of 3-6 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve the best results.
Is There Downtime Needed After Treatment?
Unlike surgical methods of facial rejuvenation, you won’t need any downtime after your session. You will be able to return to your normal activities, whether that’s heading back to work or running errands. it is important to avoid sun exposure and to wear sunscreen, as the skin will be more sensitive. We also advise that you avoid wearing makeup for twelve hours after so your skin has time to settle.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
One of the best things about IPL treatments is that they can be custom-tailored to each patient. This means that, in general, most people are good candidates for this type of treatment, provided they are over 18. There are, however, a few factors that may make IPL a poor treatment choice for some. For example, if someone has very dark skin, they may not be a good candidate because the treatment can cause unwanted side effects such as hyper/hypopigmentation. If someone has active acne or other skin conditions, they may not be a good candidate or may need to wait until the skin heals. If IPL is not the best treatment to meet your needs, our skilled staff can work with you to choose the best option to meet your needs.
