What to Expect

Before Your IPL South OC Appointment

You’ll want to avoid specific activities and medications prior to your IPL South OC appointment. Your Shangri La South OC Medspa aesthetic provider will outline each of these for you, which will include avoiding direct sunlight, tanning beds, chemical peels, collagen injections, ibuprofen, and some facial creams.

During Your IPL South OC Appointment

Your South OC Medspa aesthetic provider will listen to your specific needs and create a treatment plan unique to you. They will let you know the ideal areas to target for effective treatment.

Before starting the laser treatment, areas of your skin will be cleaned, followed by a cool numbing gel. We will then use our specialized IPL tool to send delicate pulses of light into your skin so that rejuvenation can begin.

IPL Medspa treatment typically takes no more than 30 minutes. Within just a few days from your light treatment, you’ll notice your skin has a radiant, healthy glow.

After Your IPL South OC Appointment

We recommend scheduling multiple sessions in order to receive the best results. Most patients prefer 3 to 6 treatments in total, spaced one month apart. You might experience slight sensitivity to the areas of the skin that were treated. This will go away within a few days.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does IPL Medspa treatment work?

Your aesthetic provider uses a specialized IPL tool to send gentle pulses of light to your skin. These tend to feel like a tiny pinch. When the light is sent into your skin, your pigment cells absorb the light. This turns to heat, which then destroys your facial discoloration, blemishes, and sunspots.

Is IPL Medspa treatment in South OC the same as thing as Laser treatment?

No, our IPL treatment in Encinitas is much more effective than laser treatment. The difference is that a traditional laser only uses one wavelength of light on your skin, which is limiting. IPL treatment uses multiple wavelengths of light, enabling us to treat large areas of your skin.

Traditional laser treatments are also known for damaging the top layer of skin. With IPL treatment, there is no harm caused to your skin.

How long does IPL Medspa treatment last?

Our IPL treatment in South OC creates beautiful, smooth results that last for years. Additional blemishes and sun damage to your skin can occur as a result of being out the in sun without sunscreen or a hat, but should this happen, you can always receive more treatment.

What does IPL in South OC treat?

IPL treatment helps eliminate the appearance of sunspots, blemishes, pigmentation, redness, and discoloration.

How many treatments do I need?

3 to 6 treatments is recommended, with each IPL South OC session spaced one month apart. The exact number needed depends on the area of skin and the conditions being treated.
