Typically, anesthesia is not required, but a topical numbing cream may be used for comfort. After that, the laser is applied to the targeted area in a specific direction by keeping the level of severity into consideration. The IPL device emits light that is absorbed by target areas, which can stimulate collagen production and treat pigmentation.

Multiple sessions are typically required to achieve the desired results, often ranging from 4 to 6 sessions. However, our doctor can tell you better after a proper analysis.

Results And Recovery

If you have followed all of the instructions carefully, you will get outstanding results. The recovery process of the procedure is very short, but still, you need to be careful for some days. Redness in the treated area after the procedure is normal and typically resolves on its own. Results may gradually appear over the course of several days to weeks, as the skin heals and rejuvenates.

Furthermore, you need to adhere to the fact that the use of sunscreen is necessary to get fast and the best results.
