IPL Facial After Blepharoplasty?
- Asked by Nicola in LA in Los Angeles, CA

I have recently had transconjtvl bleph - 6 weeks ago and only have some small amount residual swelling left. I used to get photofacials before the procedure, how long should I wait before getting one again?
I would feel comfortable doing IPL within 2 to 3 weeks after a blepharoplasty if there is no residual brusing present.
IPL is a surface treatment that only affects the top 1 to 2 mm of skin. I do believe there is any serious risk of doing an IPL within 2 to 3 weeks following a blepharoplasty if there is no residual bruising or abnormal skin pigment present.
IPL after a blepharoplasty
Six weeks sounds about right in my practice after surgery. An IP treatment is fairly benign and should be OK.
Six weeks is a reasonable time period. But why not call your local Cosmetic Surgeon and discuss follow-up?

IPL after lower blepharoplasty
Ask your surgeon but it should be okay to perform facial IPL 6 weeks after transconjunctival blepharoplasty whereby fat is removed but the skin on the outside is not cut.
