What to expect
When you arrive for your IPL photofacial in Salt Lake City, your provider will begin by thoroughly cleaning the area to be treated. After applying a cool gel, they will apply light pulses to your skin using a handheld device. You will be provided with special glasses to protect your eyes from the pulsed light while the device is operating. Your comfort is assured throughout the procedure, which utilizes advanced cooling technology.
IPL photofacials are not painful, but you may experience a mild stinging sensation whenever the pulses are touching your skin. Some people report this sensation as being similar to that of being lightly snapped with a rubber band. A complete session should only take about 20 to 30 minutes, depending upon the size of the treatment area.
Once your Genesis Lifestyle Medicine provider in Salt Lake City has completed your treatment, their work is largely over. Then it is up to you to navigate a successful recovery period at home so that you obtain the very best results possible from your IPL photofacial.
