What is IPL?
If you are bothered by the look of hyperpigmentation or sun damage in your complexion, you could be a great candidate for intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments at Health and Wellness of Carmel in Carmel, IN. An IPL photofacial is a rejuvenating skin treatment for pigmentation concerns on the face and neck. Dr. Clifford Fetters uses intense pulses of light energy to boost collagen production and stimulate the natural healing and skin regeneration process. Over time, you should see a healthier appearance, a more even skin tone, and fewer sun or brown spots. Although IPL is a noninvasive procedure, it can be highly effective and can produce impressive results for your skin. Our excellent team uses Harmony XL PRO technology from Alma Lasers to carry out IPL photofacials and can offer you a skin analysis to determine if this service can help renew your complexion.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does IPL cost?

At Health and Wellness of Carmel, we offer monthly specials from time to time and take several types of payment solutions to make your visit more affordable for you. During your aesthetic visit, our team can help estimate your treatment pricing and explain how many sessions are needed to fit your needs and goals.
How quick are the results from IPL?
Visible improvements can generally be experienced after your Harmony XL PRO IPL session, but optimal results are most often seen about one month after all of your treatments are done. It’s normal for you to get varying results after every treatment session. You will likely notice a gradual improvement as time goes on.
What are the possible side effects of IPL?
It's common to notice mild, temporary side effects, like swelling, redness, blisters, bruising, or crusting. This is normal and should subside in a few days. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun, and you should keep in mind that sun exposure will have a negative impact on your results. We also recommend using sunscreen to help avoid skin issues, including sun spots and redness.
Do I need to prep for IPL?
Carmel, IN men and women preparing to receive IPL therapy are typically asked to avoid sun exposure and self-tanners for 2 – 4 weeks before their treatment. We may ask you to stop using Retin-A/Renova, tetracycline, minocycline, and doxycycline several days prior to each procedure and will likely need to avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, or other blood thinners for 5 – 7 days before the procedure to help prevent bruising. It is also vital to use sunscreen between sessions.
Why should I get multiple IPL sessions?
A full series of IPL photorejuvenation sessions are recommended to provide natural-looking enhancements in the appearance of your complexion. Each treatment will help to diminish surface irregularities and spots. Several treatments also produce longer-lasting aesthetic results.
