IPL Treatment Schedule And What To Expect

You might have a lot of questions in your mind about what IPL Treatment is, how to schedule treatments as a busy working woman and what to expect when you finally do it. In this post, we're all about striking the points for you... down to the nitty gritty of maintaining things. Read on:

How to:

  1. The first thing you will need to do before getting an IPL treatment (whether in clinic or at-home) is to make sure your skin is clean, dry and free from any sort of lotion stain, perfume, deodorant or self-tan.
  2. Next, you will need to turn on the device and select the intensity level that suits your skin tone -- whether your light, medium to dark.
  3. Once you're all set, place the device against your skin and apply a little pressure. When the device and skin has full contact, the light will automatically turn green.
  4. When doing an IPL treatment to your legs, simply slide the device along your skin and press the flash button as you go along your desired areas.
  5. If you want to treat your knees, you can just lift up and press the IPL device down instead.
  6. Ensure you don't miss any spots by going back and overlap necessary areas.
  7. That's it!

Session 1 & 2:

Week 1 and Week 3 What to expect: After the procedure, you can already resume to your daily activities. For a while, the treated areas of your skin will be a little bit sensitive, but that's only because your skin is being treated and hair follicles are slowly diminished. To get the results you want, you will need to have at least 3-6 treatments. They will need to be 1 month spaced apart to let your skin heal. Recovery is fast, though, and sessions are quicker than with other traditional methods.

Session 2 & 4:

Week 5 and Week 7 What to expect: The treated skin will look great, any pigmentations are removed, sun damage and freckles will fade away. After a number of sessions your skin will be clearer, healthier and more vibrant. You will be able to see a gradual hair regrowth loss in week 5 by now.


Once every 2-3 months What to expect: By this point, your hard work will most likely be paying off. You will be silky smooth for 2-3 months at a time. This means that hair growth is usually little to non-visible follicles growing back. However, permanent hair removal with IPL is not possible, though.
