How Does IPL Work?
Pigment cells in your skin absorb light energy, which is converted into heat. That heat destroys the unwanted pigment and clears up dark spots (freckles, age spots), unwanted hair follicles, melasma and blood vessels causing rosacea.
How to Prepare for Your Treatment
Avoid direct sun, tanning beds, waxing, chemical peels and drugs that could increase the risks of skin damage (antibiotics, Retin A, vitamin A, acne medications, glycolic acids).
