STEP BY STEP PROTOCOL
GEL APPLICATION ON THE AREA TO BE TREATED
After discussing your personalized treatment plan, selecting the appropriate zone to treat, and taking pictures, the provider will apply a layer of transparent gel on your face to protect your skin and enhance the heat conduction of the intense pulsed light.
PARAMETERS ADJUSTMENTS AND SPOT TESTS
The provider will adjust different settings to make some spot tests on a hidden area of your skin, if needed, to see how your skin type reacts before treating the entire zone.
INTENSE PULSED LIGHT TREATMENT
After assessing your skin reaction, the professional will slide the IPL crystal over the entire area to emit pulses, ensuring an even treatment.
CLEANING AND HYDRATION OF THE TREATED AREA
The session ends with a cleaning of the treated area to remove the gel. The provider will apply a moisturizer with SPF to soothe the heat and protect you from the sun.
