Should you ice after IPL?
You can ice your skin after an IPL treatment, but it is not compulsory.
Expect your skin to be red right after your IPL treatment, especially if you have sensitive skin.
The redness induced by your IPL treatment will fade in about 24 hours, however, it may remain a bit longer for some people.
It is critical to ice as directed in order to reduce swelling.
The only way to avoid swelling is to ice the area immediately after treatment. When your treated region expands, it will stay swollen for a long time, and you will have to wait for it to go away on its own.
