Can you go in the sun after IPL?

After an IPL treatment, it's critical to stay out of the sun because the skin will be extremely sensitive and subject to UV damage.


Your skin will be sensitive following the treatment and will require time to recover.

Sun exposure during this period may cause skin damage or pigmentation, therefore it is recommended to cover up and wear SPF30+ sunscreen to protect your skin.


The dark color of your hair follicle attracts the light released by the laser or IPL machine.

Skin that has been browned by the sun or hair that has lightened as a result of sun exposure makes it more difficult for the light to pick up the hair follicle, reducing the treatment's effectiveness.


Your skin will be sensitive after your treatment and will require time to heal.

Sunbathing and even tanning beds are not recommended at this time because excessive exposure to UV radiation can cause skin damage.


When you go out, use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

Make sure you get a product that protects you from both UVA and UVB radiation.

For about a week, a wide-brimmed hat and long sleeves are also recommended.
