Before Your IPL Carlsbad Appointment
You’ll want to avoid specific activities and medications prior to your IPL Carlsbad appointment. Your Carlsbad Village Med Spa aesthetic provider will outline each of these for you, which will include avoiding direct sunlight, tanning beds, chemical peels, collagen injections, ibuprofen, and some facial creams.
During Your IPL Carlsbad Appointment
Your skin will be cleansed and then an ultrasound gel applied. Both you and your provider will wear protective eyewear. The IPL device will be held and moved against your skin, and the light pulses will be emitted with the trigger of a button. Some people describe the sensation as the snapping of rubber bands. The length of treatment depends on the size of the area, but it typically lasts 30 minutes. After the treatment area has been covered, the gel is removed, and sunscreen is applied.
After Your IPL Carlsbad Appointment
For the best results, we recommend receiving multiple IPL sessions. Most patients receive 3 to 6 treatments, spaced one month apart. There might be slight sensitivity in the areas of skin where IPL treatment was administered – this will subside within a few days following treatment.
How does IPL med spa treatment work?
Your aesthetic provider uses a specialized IPL tool to send gentle pulses of light to your skin. These tend to feel like a tiny pinch. When the light is sent into your skin, your pigment cells absorb the light. This turns to heat, which then destroys your facial discoloration, blemishes, and sunspots.
Is IPL med spa treatment in Carlsbad the same thing as Laser treatment?
No, our IPL treatment in Carlsbad is much more effective than laser treatment. The difference is that a traditional laser only uses one wavelength of light on your skin, which is limiting. IPL treatment uses multiple wavelengths of light, enabling us to treat large areas of your skin.
Traditional laser treatments are also known for damaging the top layer of skin. With IPL treatment, there is no harm caused to your skin.
How long does IPL med spa treatment last?
Our IPL treatment in Carlsbad creates beautiful, smooth results that last for years. Additional blemishes and sun damage to your skin can occur as a result of being out the in sun without sunscreen or a hat, but should this happen, you can always receive more treatment.
