Your IPL treatment time will depend on the size and location of the area being treated. However, most IPL therapy sessions generally take less than one hour to complete. Before your treatment, Dr. Krant will apply a gel to cool the skin to maximize your comfort. Most people report experiencing only mild sensations such as pinching or stinging during the procedure, and anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.
In most cases, one to three IPL treatments are enough to see the dramatic results you’re looking for. Additional treatments may be recommended, though, depending on your skin type and condition. During your consultation, Dr. Krant will discuss this with you before beginning your first treatment.
