What Happens After IPL Treatment for Rosacea?

Bruises caused by IPL treatment for rosacea can last up to two weeks, while dark age spots or freckles may take three to seven days to disappear. IPL therapy is a very effective way to reduce the redness and other symptoms associated with rosacea. By targeting the blood vessels that cause rosacea, the vascular response is decreased. We have seen dramatic results in patients with rosacea, even those who have experienced itching and burning sensations.

After a few treatments, these symptoms often go away. While IPL therapy will not completely cure rosacea, it will significantly reduce the physical effects of the condition. Immediately after an IPL photofacial treatment, your skin may feel as if you have a sunburn. This sensation should go away after a few hours, although some redness may remain for a few days.

You may also notice that some of your hyperpigmented spots darken temporarily, but they will peel off painlessly in a few weeks. An IPL photofacial uses multiple wavelengths of light energy, similar to a camera flash, to provide deeper and more meaningful skin rejuvenation. The broad spectrum of light used by an IPL treatment allows you to target many different types of targets with a single pulse. The recovery time after an IPL treatment varies from patient to patient, but usually takes less than a week and only 2 to 3 days.

An IPL photofacial is an effective skin rejuvenation treatment that can reduce the appearance of certain blemishes and restore a healthy, radiant complexion. This is because skin cells regenerate approximately every 30 days, giving the skin enough time to fully recover before the next IPL treatment. These instructions are designed to help the skin heal as quickly as possible and at the same time produce the best results from IPL treatment.
