Side Effects of IPL

IPL is a nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment for vascular lesions, unwanted hair, acne and pigmented lesion. Potential side effects include swelling, redness and flushing. But they are typically minor and may resolve within a few hours or days after treatment.

Long term side effects are rare but can include scarring and pigmentation changes.

The key to successful treatment is fully disclosing your medications and medical history. You may not be a good candidate for these treatments if you are pregnant, have skin cancer or open lesions and form keloid scars.

IPL treatments target the deep skin layers and because it is so gentle, it can be used in combination with other superficial treatments like chemical peels.

Schedule a consultation with the experts at Cary Med Spa and Wellness in Cary, North Carolina and find out how IPL may help you achieve clear skin, reduce pores and improve fine lines and wrinkles. It is called photorejuvenation and may help to reduce the appearance of many of the most common skin conditions, with little to no downtime and recovery.
