Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the technology of IPL/Fotofacial?

A. Laser and light-based technologies have revolutionized dermatologic treatments. Dr. Jane has introduced Advance IPL laser treatment – the world’s first medical aesthetic procedure. Dr. Jane’s increased clinical experience gained in the aesthetic laser field has proven that in many cases, a combination of short wavelength light sources and near-mid infrared lasers can give you the results that surpass those of any single treatment with stand-alone modality. Advance IPL laser treatment incorporates Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser, Intensed Pulsed Light therapy, and RF (Radiofrequency) to get the best tightening and brightening effects without any downtime.

Q. How many treatments will I need and how will they be spaced?

A. Everyone’s skin is different, but clinical studies suggest that for most people, maximum results are realized in just 3 to 5 sessions. They are usually spaced 2 to 6 weeks apart.

Q. Does the treatment hurt?

A. Cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure to minimize discomfort. During the treatment, most patients report a feeling similar to having a rubber band snapping and redness. It usually disappears after 1 to 3 hours.

Q. What should I expect after the treatment?

A. During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may be red as though it is sunburned, and it will appear bronzed especially on the brown spots. You can wear make-up to reduce the sunburned appearance. Your skin will become tighter and radiant over the next week or two weeks and as you continue treatment, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat.

Q. What side effects can I expect after treatment and how long will they last?

A. Some temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. There is a very limited risk of infection or scarring. The intensity and duration of side effects depend on the aggressiveness of treatment and on your particular healing characteristics. Your physician will provide specific instructions about what to expect and how to minimize any side effects.

Q. What precautions should I take after treatment?

A. Wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 days after your last treatment, and wear a wide-brimmed hat when you’re in the sun.

Q. How long do the positive effects of the treatment last?

A. It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is treated, continue to protect it as described above. For conditions such as melasma, it is very important to avoid direct sun exposure. Your physician will give you specific advice based on your individual needs.
