People opt for IPL to address concerns like sun spots, age spots, freckles, broken blood vessels, and unwanted hair. The number of treatments required can vary, but typically a series of 4 to 6 sessions is recommended, spaced a few weeks apart.
Before the treatment, individuals should avoid sun exposure, tanning products, and certain medications to reduce the risk of complications. During the procedure, patients might experience mild discomfort, similar to the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin.
After IPL, it's important to protect the treated skin from the sun and use gentle skincare products.
