Intense Pulse Light ( IPL) is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation facial used to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage. IPL targets skin imperfections and skin damage associated with the natural aging process, environmental factors and photodamage to diminish the years of skin damage.
Does it hurt?
IPL pulses can feel like stinging, similar to the sensation of a hot, snapping rubber band against the skin. Blue Mussel Aesthetics offers topical numbing and/or Nitronox (laughing gas) as a pain relief option.
What is the downtime?
It is possible to experience redness and swelling after an IPL, this can vary from
24-72 hrs. Areas of pigment may turn a dark, coffee brown color, then slough off in 10 days to 2 weeks. You can apply makeup immediately after IPL procedure, if necessary.
