HOW TO PREPARE FOR IPL?

 

Because the IPL photofacial involves the application of intense light waves, you will be asked to make certain preparations prior to treatment. The goal is to ensure that your Maple Ridge IPL treatment is as productive and effective as possible. To prepare, you will be required to avoid self-tanners or excessive sun exposure for two to four weeks. “Excessive sun” includes beach and pool time, laying out in the sun, or being exposed to strong rays in activities such as boating, sports, running, or other outdoor activity.

There are several medications you will likely have to discontinue a few days before each treatment: minocycline, tetracycline, doxycycline or Retin-A, to name a few of the most common. Medication changes may need to be coordinated with your doctor. To prevent bruising, you may be asked to avoid aspirin or ibuprofen for a week prior to your appointment. Note that laser treatments should not be performed during pregnancy. No safety studies have been performed, and changes in your skin colour during pregnancy may work against the results that can be achieved.
