What is IPL?
Individuals who are concerned about the look of sun damage or dark spots on their skin may be excellent candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments at Country Club Med Spa. An IPL photofacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment for the appearance of hyperpigmentation on the face and neck. The Alma Harmony XL PRO laser emits intense wavelengths of light to stimulate the natural regeneration process and increase the production of collagen. Over time, you should notice a healthier complexion, an enhanced tone, and fewer areas of hyperpigmentation. Schedule a consultation at our spa in El Paso, TX today for a skin analysis to determine if this option can help renew your complexion.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does IPL cost?
Your skin is unique, so the cost of IPL therapy will depend on your individual concerns. During your initial consultation, your technician can estimate pricing and discuss how many sessions are required to match your goals.
How quick are the results from IPL?
Skin improvements can usually be noticed after one treatment with Harmony XL PRO IPL technology, but the best results typically develop about one month after all of your treatments are complete. It is common for you to see different responses following each treatment session. You will most likely see a fading of redness, blotchiness, age spots, and sun spots as time goes on.
What are the possible side effects of IPL?
Most men and women have minor, temporary side effects, such as swelling, redness, bruising, blisters, or crusting. These should subside within a day or two after the procedure. Your skin will be photosensitive, and excessive exposure to damaging UV rays will affect your results. We also recommend using sunscreen to help avoid skin damage, such as sun spots and redness.
Do I need to prep for IPL?
Patients about to undergo an IPL treatment are asked to skip sun exposure and self-tanners for a minimum of two weeks prior to the treatment. You may be asked to discontinue the use of certain medications and topical creams, like Retin-A, several days before each appointment. We may recommend that you avoid taking blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medications for one week before the treatment to decrease your risk of bruising. A detailed plan will be discussed with you during your consulation.
Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
Multiple IPL treatments with Harmony XL PRO are recommended to deliver gradual improvements to your skin. Each session helps to reduce areas of hyperpigmentation and sun spots. We will evaluate your skin to determine how many sessions are needed to achieve your goal.
