If you're thinking about this option, it's important to know that preparation plays a key role in achieving the best results. Let's delve into some essential steps to ensure that your photofacial treatment with Lumecca IPL technology at Everest Medspa meets your expectations and helps enhance your natural beauty.

What are the benefits of IPL photofacial treatment?

IPL photofacial is a noninvasive treatment that utilizes intense pulsed light (IPL) to help improve the appearance of your skin. This skin rejuvenation treatment can help reduce spots, sun damage, and freckles, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enhance skin texture, and get rid of broken capillaries or spider veins. With the cutting-edge Lumecca IPL technology at Everest Medspa, our team ensures that your photofacial treatment is tailored to your skin type and concerns.

How can I prepare my skin before my IPL photofacial?

Proper preparation is key to achieving the best results from your treatment. Here's how you can prepare your skin for an IPL photofacial:

  • Avoid sun exposure: Avoid tanning beds and direct sun for at least two weeks before treatment.
  • Skip certain products: Discontinue using products containing retinoids, glycolic acid, or other harsh ingredients a week prior to your treatment.
  • No waxing or plucking: Refrain from waxing, plucking, or any other hair removal methods for 2 – 4 weeks before your appointment.
  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water and use a gentle moisturizer to help keep your skin well-hydrated.

What should I expect during my photofacial treatment?

At Everest Medspa, your comfort and safety are of the utmost importance. During your appointment, the treatment area will be gently cleansed to prepare your skin for the IPL photofacial. A member of our team will then skillfully utilize the Lumecca IPL device, carefully calibrating it to your unique skin needs. The procedure is designed to be both effective and gentle, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and revitalized. Depending on the areas being treated, the entire session is typically completed within a comfortable time frame of 30 – 60 minutes.

How can I take care of my skin after the treatment?

Following Dr. Li's aftercare instructions is crucial for the continued success of your skin rejuvenation treatment. Avoid sun exposure by using SPF 30 or higher sunscreen, use mild cleansers and moisturizers to help with healing, stay hydrated by drinking water and maintaining a healthy diet, and return for any scheduled follow-ups to ensure optimal results.
