Don’t Do These Things After an IPL Photofacial
So you’ve just had an IPL photofacial and your skin is feeling great. But in order to maintain those results, there are a few things you need to avoid doing. Read on to learn more!
Avoid the Sun
One of the most important things to do after an IPL photofacial is to avoid the sun. Your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight and you could experience some irritation. If you must go outside, make sure to wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
Don’t Pick at Your Skin
It’s also important not to pick at your skin after an IPL photofacial. You may see some new skin growth or peeling, but it’s important to let your skin heal on its own. Picking at your skin can cause scarring or other damage.
Avoid Hot Water
Another thing to avoid after an IPL photofacial is hot water. This includes hot showers, baths, and saunas. Hot water can irritate your skin and cause redness or swelling. Stick to cool or lukewarm water for the first few days after your treatment.
If you’ve just had an IPL photofacial, make sure to avoid the sun, picking at your skin, and hot water. These can all irritate your skin and cause damage. Instead, focus on taking care of your skin so that you can enjoy long-lasting results!
