So we thought this was a good time to reflect on a crucial part of our IPL training, and that is the importance of making safe decisions when it comes to IPL treatments and sun exposure.
Avoid treating sun exposed skin with IPL
The Australian sun is strong – especially in summer. So for the safety of your customers and for the security of your business as a treatment provider, any unprotected sun exposure on an area being treated with IPL means treatments must be postponed for at least 4 weeks*, sometimes longer if the customers tan has not completely faded. *Check with your insurance provider if they have longer wait time criteria.
Avoid treating artificially tanned skin with IPL
We recommend a minimum of 4 weeks between the application of any fake tanning product and IPL treatments.
Communicating home care to clients, including avoiding heat on the treatment area (such as hot baths, exercise and sun exposure for 24 hours) are especially important during this time. A laser cooling gel, which can be applied post treatment and also provided as a take home retail purchase product will also assist.
Be sure to assess the skin for tanning pre-treatment and assess the heat in the clients skin if it’s hot outside. As a precautionary measure, you may wish to treat clients at settings for a higher Fitzpatrick type, lower the joules and use a higher filter throughout the summer months.
Slip, slop, slap
By consistently using a high protection sunscreen on the treatment area clients can avoid the effects of sun exposure, however, the client must be rigorous about applying and re-applying the sunscreen as per the directions on the bottle. It’s vital during summer to gently remind clients of the importance of staying sun smart year round for the benefit of their IPL treatments, and also for the welfare of their skin long term.
If you are ever unsure of what to do and how to proceed in an IPL treatment situation, please call us immediately on 03 8555 2246. Our expert clinicians are here to help with your queries and guide you in the right direction.
