How long do IPL results last?

For the best results from IPL therapy, we recommend that our patients perform 5 IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments, performed 4 weeks apart. IPL results can last for years as long as the skin is properly cared for with a sufficient skincare routine and sun protection. The success of treatment largely depends on the skill and experience of the person performing IPL therapy. If you use hair removal creams but have scheduled an IPL laser treatment, you should wait at least six weeks after using one of these creams to undergo your treatment.

Treatments are usually performed on the facial area, although patients can also use IPL to treat skin on the chest, hands, and neck. You don't have to look far for excellent dermatology services, including IPL therapy and other cosmetic treatments. IPL is most often done on the face, neck and chest, as these are usually the parts of the body that are most frequently exposed to the sun, but IPL can also be performed on the arms, legs, etc. In addition to treating wrinkles related to volume loss, IPL treatments can be used to treat wrinkles related to volume loss erase freckles, birthmarks, varicose veins, age spots and sunspots, other signs of sun damage, rosacea, unwanted hair and broken blood vessels on the face.

IPL treatments work very well to reduce and remove brown and red spots on the skin and create a better overall complexion. If patients are good candidates for IPL treatment, they may undergo a series of three to six initial treatments to begin to see results. These are other guidelines that your dermatologist will recommend you follow to get the best possible results from your IPL treatments. You will see the best results after 3 to 6 months if you do a series of IPL treatments with an interval of about one month for each session.

As another example, if you take aspirin every day to mitigate the risk of a heart attack and you can't stop taking it for 14 days, an IPL treatment isn't ideal for you. Whether IPL treatment is right for you depends largely on the type of results you're looking for.
