Prior to Your IPL Procedure

You may want to shave the area you want to be treated a day in advance of your IPL treatment in Bellevue to minimize any discomfort from razor burn, and you should avoid intense sun exposure or tanning within 4 weeks of your treatment.

Your IPL Procedure

Your procedure will go fast. A small area can be treated in minutes, and a full-face treatment generally lasts about 30 minutes. You will be seated comfortably in our Intense Pulsed Light and laser suite in Bellevue. The esthetician will apply a cold gel to the area that will be treated and provide you with eye protection. The IPL handpiece will be placed against the treatment area, and your treatment will begin. You will feel a sensation like a small rubber band being snapped against the area followed by a warm sensation.
