HOW DOES IT WORK ?

Intense pulsed light, commonly known as IPL, can be used to selectively destroy the melanin pigments contained in dark spots. A tightening effect on the skin can also be observed, which provides an overall rejuvenating effect.

EACH PATIENT IS UNIQUE

Solar lentigos, commonly called dark spots or age spots, are flat brown spots caused by sun exposure. They can present themselves in different ways on different patients. That is why every treatment for dark spots is tailored to each patient.

MAXIMIZING RESULTS

In order to maximize the results of the IPL treatment, medical-grade skin products containing lightening agents like hydroquinone or arbutin can be used at home. The daily use of sunscreen is also very important to prevent the appearance of dark spots and make the results of this treatment last longer.

FAQ

Everything you need to know about this treatment

CAN I DO THIS TREATMENT IF I HAVE DARK SKIN ?

The treatment cannot be carried out on phototypes IV, V, and VI. To determine your phototype, your treatment provider will assess your skin during your first consultation. Also, you will need to be very transparent about your degree of sun exposure in the last few weeks and the one you have planned for the following weeks.
We don't want your skin to have to peel. To optimize the healing of your skin, you will need to avoid flaking with the regular application of moisturizer and sunscreen.
It is not recommended to have direct sun exposure for two weeks after your treatment. After these two weeks, we recommend good sun protection. Be aware that you should never be in the sun without protection.
Each technology has its risks. However, at Clinique Chloé, all necessary measures are taken to ensure that such a situation does not occur. Your treating professional is certified and highly qualified to carry out your treatment. Also, you will need to be very transparent about your sun exposure over the past few weeks so that your professional has all the elements necessary for your assessment.
