Can I wash my face after IPL?

Yes, you can wash your face after IPL hair removal. However, as your skin recovers, you should avoid using any products that could irritate it or obstruct the healing process.

Face wash or cleansers rich in Vitamin A, such as retinoic acid, Tretinoin (Retin-A), and alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), are among the potential irritants.


Cleaning the skin too quickly might cause irritation and delay the healing process.

Maintain a healthy level of moisture in your skin to aid in your recuperation.

Use substances that are relaxing and stay away from items that include harsh chemicals.

For the first 24 hours after treatment, you should obtain plenty of rest and avoid intense activities.


All in all, It's fine to wash your face the night before your treatment as long as you use a gentle cleanser and warm water.

You can apply this gently twice a day, wiping your skin dry with a clean towel afterward.

Your skin will most likely feel and appear like it has been sunburned, which can persist anywhere from a few hours to a few days after treatment. Before putting on makeup, you should wait for the redness to go away.
