IPL for Men - Sun Spots Be Gone!

Just like women, men are susceptible to hyperpigmentation, acne, fine lines, and rosacea.

Fortunately, these skin conditions can be effectively treated with a series of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments to help male patients achieve clear and even skin.

What Is An IPL Laser And What Does It Do? 

An intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment emits a broadband light to target discoloration on the face, neck, chest, and back. It’s often used to diminish broken blood vessels, acne, sun spots, fine lines, melasma, and rosacea.

IPL is an excellent option for men as it is non-invasive, does not involve needles or incisions, and has zero downtime. The procedure can be completed over a lunch break in 30-60 minutes.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For IPL Treatments?

Men that are in good health, committed to a daily skincare regimen, and regularly apply sunscreen are often good candidates for an IPL treatment.

It’s also important that patients have not recently tanned their skin and are able to avoid or substantially limit sun exposure for at least two weeks post-procedure.  The skin is sensitive and very susceptible to sunburns, not to mention reversing your results.

What Can You Expect From IPL As A Man?

Prior to an IPL, male patients will be instructed to have a clean shave to avoid an unwanted reduction in facial hair.

During the treatment, patients are provided with goggles to protect their eyes from the bright flashes of light.

The IPL handpiece delivers energy to the skin one pulse at a time, and most men find the treatment to be very tolerable. However, if you are concerned about discomfort, your provider can apply a topical anesthetic beforehand.

What Do I Do After My IPL Laser Treatment?

Post-IPL, the skin may look and feel like a mild sunburn, which typically goes away within 24 hours. Patients may also see that areas of hyperpigmentation may initially appear darker before coming to the surface and flaking off.  So it's expected to look worse before it looks better.

All normal activities can be resumed immediately after with limited to no sun exposure for two weeks. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF should be used daily to preserve treatment benefits.

Results can be seen within 1-2 weeks with an improved skin tone and texture. Optimal effects from IPL usually require a series of 3-6 sessions spaced out four weeks apart. 

If sun damage, uneven skin tone, and texture get you down then this is a great treatment for you!  Pair this with a good daily skincare routine and facial injections to diminish wrinkles and you'll feel back to your youthful self!
