Am I a candidate for a elos Plus Skin Rejuvenation (IPL)?
This treatment is not ideal for all patients. Those with darker skin types may be better suited for a chemical peel, Dermapen or microdermabrasion treatment instead. Dr. Schulman’s licensed medical aesthetician will analyze your skin to determine if this treatment is best for you.
What do I need to do before and after my IPL treatment?
You must discontinue any exfoliating products including alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) serums, scrubs, retinol night creams and topical prescriptions (Triluma, Retin-A, Tretinoin etc…) for at least 5 days prior to and 5 days after your treatment.
IPL cannot be performed on sun burned or tanned skin. This includes tans from tanning beds. Self-tanner should be discontinued for at least 2 weeks prior to treatment.
