IPL Correction Treatment Aftercare for Acne, Pigmentation, Rejuvenation and Vascular


  • A sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater should be applied. 
  • Avoid sun exposure to treated areas.

For the first 24 hours post treatment (or until redness and swelling subsides):

  • Application of chilled aloe vera gel or post laser gel up to 3x a day. 
  • A cold compress every hour for 5 to 10 minutes may be soothing to the skin. Do not apply ice directly to the skin. (Avoid for IPL Photo-rejuvenation)
  • Avoid exercise, and activities that increase perspiration and body temperature. 
  • Avoid the use of pools, saunas and spas.
  • Avoid extremely hot baths and showers. 
  • Avoid application of deodorant in the treatment area. 

Up to 5 days post treatment:

  • Avoid use of scented lotions or soaps. 
  • Avoid the use of cosmeceutical AHA’s, BHA’s, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. 

Up to 1 - 4 weeks post treatment:

  • Avoid the use of prescription strength exfoliant creams (prescriptive Vitamin A).
  • Avoid anti-wrinkle injections and filler injections in the treatment area. 
  • After 2 weeks, start gently exfoliating the treated area. This may include use of a loofah, mitts, AHA and BHA based lotions or retinol. Use of these products sooner will aggravate the skin and cause inflammation to the skin during the healing phase. (Avoid for IPL Pigmentation: wait 4 weeks to exfoliate). 


Contact your treatment provider if you notice any blisters, crusts or open areas. Allow these to heal spontaneously. If healing is delayed, a thin coating of antibiotic ointment may be advised. 

Do not pick at these areas. Picking may result in infection or scarring.

Your treatment provider will advise you when you should schedule your next appointment, as different areas of the body require different treatment intervals. It is important to adhere to this regime for best results.

Maintenance treatments will be required and will be ongoing. 

Throughout your treatment course, it is important to advise your treatment provider of any of the following as these will influence treatment efficacy and safety:

  • Sun exposure or fake tan application on the treatment area within the past 4 weeks
  • Any new health conditions, or if you have been unwell 
  • Commencing any new medication (including short-term doses)
  • Changes to current medications or supplements
  • If you are trying to become, or become pregnant
