Post-Treatment Guide For Light Therapy

What To Expect After Your Light Therapy Procedure

After undergoing light therapy at our med spa, here’s what you can expect during the post-treatment phase:

No Downtime: Light therapy is a non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime. You can resume your regular activities immediately after the treatment.

Slight Redness or Sensation: It is common to experience mild redness in the treated area or a slight warm sensation during or immediately after the light therapy session. These effects are usually temporary and subside shortly after the treatment.

Hydrate and Protect Your Skin: After light therapy, it is essential to keep your skin well-hydrated and protected from the sun. Use a gentle moisturizer to nourish your skin and apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF before going outdoors.

Avoid Harsh Skincare Products: To allow your skin to fully benefit from the light therapy treatment, avoid using harsh or abrasive skincare products for a few days following the procedure. Stick to gentle cleansers and moisturizers that are suitable for your skin type.

Follow Skincare Provider’s Recommendations: Your skincare provider will provide specific post-treatment instructions based on your individual needs. It is important to follow these instructions to maximize the results of your light therapy treatment.

When Should I Expect to See Results?

The results of light therapy can vary depending on the specific goals of your treatment and your skin’s response. Some individuals may notice immediate improvements in skin tone and texture, while others may see gradual enhancements over time.

For certain skin concerns, such as acne or hyperpigmentation, it may take several sessions to achieve the desired results. Your skincare provider will discuss the expected timeline and the number of treatments needed during your consultation.

Consistency is key when it comes to light therapy. Regular sessions as recommended by your skincare provider will yield the best outcomes and help maintain the achieved results in the long term.
