Following your IPL Photofacial, your skin may be slightly swollen, red or tender. This could last 1-5 days. Please use cool water, gentle products and avoid excessive heat for 48 hours. Do not exfoliate the area for 2 weeks. On Day 3-5 you may notice a “peppering” or “coffee grounds” effect on the treated area. Please do not exfoliate this, it will slough off on it’s own revealing beautiful skin underneath. During this time be sure to protect your skin with a broad spectrum SPF40+ and avoid prolonged sun exposure.
