Laser treatment of erythema – before, during and after the procedure
Before an IPL laser erythema treatment a doctor takes medical history of a patient in order to establish whether the treatment is advisable and safe. Next, individual features of a patient, such as skin color, pigment content, size and pathological conditions as well as number of discolorations are assessed. Thanks to a detailed and thorough analysis, a doctor is able to select the appropriate light beam, which will effectively treat the erythema and at the same time, guarantee full safety.
During the procedure, a patient’s skin will be specially cleansed in the treated areas. Next, eyes are covered with special protection and a protective gel is applied to the treated areas. A patient, lying comfortably does not feel any pain, only slight burning due to the heat of a light impulse sent through the laser. The highest level of comfort is ensured by specially designed cooling end at the laser head. In fact, the procedure may be as pleasant as a massage performed with heat!
After a laser treatment of erythema, a patient may return to their normal activities. It is crucial to remember that up to one month after laser erythema treatment, sunbathing and artificial tanning should be avoided. The skin in the treated area should be protected with high sunscreen factors and moisturized with appropriate products. Patients should avoid alcohol-based cosmetics that dry out the skin, expose it to strong wind or frost, avoid substances and products that irritate the skin. Moreover, up to 2 weeks after the treatment, it is recommended not to use any deep peels and other treatments that may damage the sensitive skin.
