Frequently Asked Questions

In contrast to lasers, an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device emits multiple wavelengths of pulsating light. This versatility allows it to address various skin concerns simultaneously. Following an IPL treatment, your skin tone can appear more even, contributing to a more youthful appearance. Unlike laser therapy, which employs a single wavelength specific to the procedure, intense pulsed light therapy utilizes multiple wavelengths of light released in pulses. Visualize it as a strobe light moving across the skin. Unlike a laser’s focused beam, IPL emits dispersed beams of light that collaborate. As the light penetrates into the second skin layer, cells absorb its energy, heat up, and eventually break down pigmentation within the cells. This process effectively reduces age spots, other pigmentation issues, moles, birthmarks, and rosacea.
Lighter skin types are ideal for this procedure and can address Skin tone, wrinkles, photoaging, skin rejuvenation, photo-facials, sun-damaged skin, uneven pigmentation, scars, spider veins, vascular lesions, rosacea, acne, and hair reduction are all conditions that can be addressed through IPL treatments.

It’s crucial to steer clear of substantial sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks before your treatment.

  • Refrain from using self-tanner for 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
  • Steer clear of aspirin and Ibuprofen for one week leading up to your treatment. Let the Provider know if you’re on blood thinners or have a regular aspirin or ibuprofen regimen.
  • Avoid alcohol for 2 days before your treatment.
  • Notify the Provider if you’ve taken Accutane (oral acne medication) within the past year.
If feasible, come to your appointment with the treatment area free of creams or makeup. Alternatively, arrive 10 minutes ahead of your scheduled time to cleanse the skin. Cleansing products are provided for your convenience. • Plan for around 45 minutes for your appointment duration, which may vary based on the size of the treatment area. • We will take pre-treatment photos. • Right before the procedure, you’ll be provided with eye shields or glasses to safeguard your eyes. The treatment has been described of feelings of being “ snapped” with a rubber band. The treatment is very tolerable and usually takes 45- 60 minutes.

Recovery following an IPL treatment is variable among patients, typically taking less than a week, and in some cases only a few hours to a few days. Immediately after the procedure, you might observe mild redness and swelling, akin to a sunburn. You can use ice packs or a cool washcloth as needed. If treating freckles and other dark spots, the treated area might experience dryness and flaking. Some spots could temporarily appear darker, but they should naturally shed within a few days. You’re welcome to apply makeup immediately after an IPL session if you wish. For the next three days post-treatment, it’s advisable to avoid strenuous activities and situations that may cause skin flushing.

  • Post-IPL Care – • Avoid hot showers for 48 hours.
  • For the first 2 days following the treatment, refrain from using aspirin, Ibuprofen, consuming alcohol, strenuous exercise, and activities that might lead to skin flushing.
  • Avoid potent topical products like retinols and glycolic acid items for one week after each session.
  • Shield the treated area from direct sunlight and utilize sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for 4 to 6 weeks post-treatment.
  • Avoid swimming for a week, particularly in chlorinated pools.
  • Refrain from intense exercise for 48 hours; you can resume gym activities about 2 days after treatment.
  • No hot tubs or Jacuzzis for 48 hours.
  • Activities causing excessive perspiration should be avoided for 24 hours. • Do not pick at or remove any loosening or peeling skin.
  • Wait for 14 days after the treatment before engaging in electrolysis, facial waxing, or using depilatories (hair removal products).

Sleeping with your head raised will reduce swelling and redness

Mild complications of IPL include: Redness, swelling, light bruising, itching, peeling, and scabbing
The concise response is no.
The number of recommended IPL treatments varies based on the treatment purpose. To achieve optimal results, it’s typically advised that patients undergo an average of 3-4 sessions, spaced four weeks apart. Pigment: You can anticipate observing the complete outcomes of a single treatment within four to six weeks. However, you should notice dark spots fading and shedding within a week. If you opt for a series of treatments spaced approximately one month apart, the most significant outcomes will become evident within two to three months after the final treatment. Veins: The effects of IPL treatment become apparent shortly after the session and continue to improve over the following days and weeks. Complete collapse and reabsorption of veins by the body take some time, thus the final outcomes aren’t immediately visible. If the spider veins were accompanied by symptoms, these discomforts usually subside right after treatment.

Recent direct sun exposure or self tanner within the last 7-10 days

Due to water’s vital role within the epidermal and dermal tissues, the 2940 nm wavelength produced by Erbium:YAG lasers has the ability to rapidly vaporize water present in the skin. This specific wavelength enables swift skin ablation with minimal heat damage to the surrounding area. Unlike CO2 lasers, Erbium serves as a more superficial skin resurfacing tool, refining the skin’s texture. The Erbium:YAG laser produces excellent resurfacing outcomes and comes with numerous patient benefits, such as reduced anesthesia needs, shorter recovery periods, decreased redness, lower risk of pigment changes, and increased versatility for facial skin resurfacing.
Individuals with practical expectations and mild to moderate skin concerns are suitable candidates for Erbium Laser Resurfacing. If you have fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or forehead, shallow acne scars, or skin that hasn’t responded well to a facelift, you could be a suitable candidate for this procedure.
  • Erbium laser resurfacing cannot be conducted on tanned skin. It’s crucial to avoid sun exposure.
  • Refrain from direct sunlight and tanning beds for at least 4 weeks before the treatment.
  • Apply broad spectrum SPF and consider pretreatment if you are susceptible to cold sores.
Usually, a topical numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Mild redness (erythema) can persist for a few hours to a few days, depending on the intensity of the treatment. A sensation similar to mild sunburn, potentially accompanied by some discomfort, might endure for around 24-48 hours. Patients can use ice to alleviate any discomfort. A few days after the treatment, slight skin peeling may commence; it’s important not to pick at the skin during this phase. Treatment usually takes about 60 mins for numbing and the procedure.
Yes, both ablative and non-ablative Erbium laser resurfacing can aid in anti-aging by promoting collagen reorganization and activating fibroblasts in skin affected by photoaging. Ablative resurfacing, such as with the Spectrum laser, produces more pronounced outcomes in a shorter timeframe.
Use soft cloth and soft towels to avoid any scrubbing. When showering, avoid getting shampoo directly on the treated area. Avoid strenuous exercise and sweating until after skin has healed.
The duration of recovery will differ based on your specific treatment. Typically, skin will start shedding within 2-3 days after the procedure, and a gentle rosy tint might persist for several weeks. You can use makeup to minimize any redness. Generally, taking 2-3 days off should be adequate, while more aggressive treatments may require 3-5 days for recovery.
Mild complications that can arise from Erbium:YAG laser resurfacing encompass conditions like milia, worsened acne, contact dermatitis, or perioral dermatitis. Moderate complications might include extended redness (erythema), temporary post-treatment hyperpigmentation, and delayed hypopigmentation.

The uppermost layer of skin will regenerate and can be concealed with makeup in approximately one week. During this time, you’ll observe evident enhancements in your skin’s texture, tone, and reduction in wrinkle appearance. Deeper laser treatments additionally trigger the development of new collagen over the subsequent four to six months.
Pixel8 RF microneedling is an innovative procedure that synergizes two widely used skin rejuvenation technologies: radiofrequency and skin needling. Radiofrequency (RF) technology employs the skin’s inherent resistance to convert RF energy into thermal energy, generating heat. This heat stimulates collagen contraction and prompts fibroblasts (collagen-producing cells) to produce more collagen. Traditional skin microneedling causes controlled skin trauma, activating the body’s natural wound healing response and encouraging fibroblasts to generate additional collagen. By combining these approaches, fractionated RF microneedling produces heightened results that couldn’t be attained with either technology alone. Clinical studies demonstrate that microneedling RF effectively addresses aging-related concerns, notably reducing wrinkles and age spots. It also tightens and lifts skin on the face and neck with minimal discomfort and downtime. Compared to injectables and laser skin resurfacing, it offers a less invasive option while restoring youthful radiance.
The Pixel8 RF microneedling device is suitable for all skin types and can be applied on any area of the body. It’s effective throughout the entire year and is appropriate for individuals with mild to moderate concerns related to skin quality, texture, and anti-aging.
Yes, Pixel8 RF microneedling does stimulate collagen production. Microneedling alone can enhance collagen production over time. However, when combined with radiofrequency, the efficacy of these treatments significantly improves because radiofrequency’s thermal energy can penetrate the sub-dermal layers of skin more deeply.

Pre-treatment:

  • Avoid Accutane for the past 6 months.
  • Refrain from using topical agents that might increase skin sensitivity: retinoids, topical antibiotics, exfoliants, and acids that could be drying or irritating (such as AHA, BHA, exfoliating masks, salicylic acids, hydroquinone, and benzoyl peroxide acne products) for 5-7 days prior.
  • Do not take anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, Motrin, or Advil for 3 days before treatment, as they interfere with the natural inflammatory process essential for skin rejuvenation.
  • Avoid IPL/laser procedures, unprotected sun exposure, or sunburn for 2 weeks prior.
  • Refrain from waxing, depilatory creams, or electrolysis in the treatment area for 5-7 days prior.
  • Avoid shaving on the day of the procedure to prevent skin irritation. If there’s dense hair, closely shave the day before the appointment.
  • Do not treat moles, warts, or actinic keratosis.
  • If prone to cold sores, take antiviral agents for 2 days before and on the day of treatment.
  • Avoid blood-thinning agents (aspirin, fish oil, Omega-3, Vitamin E) for 1 week prior. Resume after treatment.
Most patients find the 20-30-minute Pixel8 RF microneedling treatment to be well-tolerated. To alleviate discomfort during the procedure, a topical numbing agent is applied to the skin beforehand. During RF microneedling, patients might experience a warm sensation and a sensation similar to pricking or scraping, but it’s generally not painful. After the treatment, it’s normal to experience some degree of redness, swelling, irritation, and mild discomfort. However, these symptoms typically subside on their own within a few hours.

Post-treatment:

  • For 2 weeks, avoid harsh topical products or alcohol-based toners.
  • Resume your normal skincare routine after 24 hours.
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, Motrin, or Advil for 1 week, as they can interfere with the natural inflammatory process important for skin rejuvenation.
  • Refrain from using ice on your face or using arnica or bromelain, as these might interfere with the natural inflammatory process. Cold compresses may be used if necessary 24 hours post treatment
  • Avoid vigorous activity immediately after the treatment.
  • Stay away from excessive heat or sun exposure for at least 1 week.
  • Use sunblock with SPF 30 or higher
Mild swelling, redness, scabbing, dryness, peeling and dermatitis are mild expected side effects of the procedure. Research has indicated potential risks associated with RF treatments, including the possibility of burns resulting from thermal heating effects, particularly in cases involving high doses. However, the Pixel8 RF procedure employs a minimal amount of RF energy under the guidance of trained skincare specialists. This approach is implemented to ensure optimal and safe outcomes for patients.
