IPL (Intense Pulse Light)


Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

Many of us are striving hard to get rid of face wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots, age spots, and other skin-related issues. Skin concerns, especially premature aging and brown spots, can cause you to feel less confident with your overall appearance. J’adore Beauty and Aesthetics are here to provide you with the best solution to get rid of stubborn skin concerns.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an advanced laser treatment that rejuvenates the skin beautifully. It helps you eliminate sun spots, photoaging (visible damage caused by sun exposure), pigmented lesions, freckles, broken capillaries, rosacea, acne scars, and kills the bacteria in acne.

Our provider will always access your skin to see if IPL is the best treatment for you.

What is Intense Pulse Light Treatment- A Brief Overview?

IPL is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic grade treatment that helps improve your skin's tone and texture. This light-based treatment effectively treats brown scars, sun damage, facial redness, and red blood vessels on the face. You can also go with the IPL if you have brown, red, or splotchy skin due to poor health conditions. It uses light energy to address several skin-related issues.

IPL can also be used to treat other body parts, including hands, arms, legs, back, chest, neck, and face. Many people prefer undergoing IPL treatment because of its satisfactory results and minimal downtime.

During the IPL treatment, your skin is heated with more than one wavelength of pulsating light. The light energy helps to diminish the areas of concern that you are looking to achieve results with. This versatile non-invasive treatment can treat a range of skin-related issues at the same time. IPL treatment makes your skin look younger, rejuvenated and radiant. In order to achieve the best results, our provider recommends 4-6 treatments at four-week intervals. More than 6 treatments can be needed depending on how deep your concerns are and the amount of time it has taken to receive this amount of sun damage.

The best candidate for this treatment is Fitzpatricks 1-4 and patients who are going to stay consistent with coming in once a month, has a good skin care regimen, stays out of the sun and wears spf every morning plus reapplies every 2 hours when receiving sun exposure.

IPL Pre & Post Care


  • You may experience a sunburned sensation immediately following treatment. Although rare, some light swelling is possible.
  • Darkening of freckles and other areas is normal. If this occurs, do not pick or exfoliate the areas. They will flake off or lighten on their own over the next week if on the face and over the next several weeks if on the body.
  • If you experience a burn, gently cleanse the area and use hydrocortisone cream on the area several times a day for the next week. If the mark opens, also use antibiotic ointment over the hydrocortisone cream. Please notify us immediately of any burns.
  • Use SPF 30 or higher daily on treated area if exposed.
  • You may generally resume normal skin care regimen after three days following treatment (or sooner if advised by your technician).
  • Make-up may be applied the day after your treatment (or sooner if advised by your technician).

Please call our office during normal business hours if you have ANY questions or concerns.

I understand that these pre/post care instructions are important to my overall treatment. I agree that I have read and understand what is required of me to have my treatment.


  • Avoid sun exposure for 1 to 3 weeks prior to treatment and use SPF 30 daily to ensure coverage against UVB and UBA rays.
  • Do not use self-tanning products for 1 to 3 weeks prior to and/or post treatment.
  • Discontinue use of Tretinoin type products (Renova, Tretinoin, Retin A, Retin A Micro, Tri-Luma, Solage, etc.) at least 2 or 3 days prior to treatment and do not restart for at least 48 hours but in some cases up to 2 weeks if skin is sensitive after treatment.
  • Discontinue use of Hydroquinone 2 or 3 days prior to treatment.
  • If you have a history of cold sores, begin prophylactic treatment with Valtrex or similar no later than the day prior to IPL.
  • Notify the center if you develop a cold sore, acne, open lesions in the area being treated, or experience any type of illness prior to your treatment.

Is it Safe to Undergo IPL Treatment?

Yes, IPL is an FDA-approved treatment, meaning it is safe to undergo an IPL treatment. But you must ensure that highly experienced and well-certified practitioners perform the treatment. Sometimes IPL may cause unwanted side effects, including;

  • Darkening of sun spots which will later flake off like a coffee ground
  • Skin redness

The providers at J’adore Beauty and Aesthetics suggest pre and post-treatment precautions to avoid unwanted side effects. For instance, you cannot have sun exposure 2 weeks prior and 2 weeks after treatment.
