I had a photofacial/IPL procedure done 4 days ago. I expected that my hyperpigmented blotches would be peeling off by now, but they still haven't. How long does it normally take?
IPL Post-Treatment Hyperpigmentation
Thank you for your question. Hyperpigmentation following an IPL treatment typically begins three to five days after treatment and has a “coffee-ground” appearance. Generally speaking the darkened spots disappear one to two weeks after treatment. If any of the original hyperpigmentation remains after the darkened spots have disappeared additional treatments may be required to achieve desired results. As always if you are unsure about your treatment results it is best to contact the provider that performed the procedure. I hope this helps.
