    Default RLT after and before IPL

    Hi there,
    I've been using RLT for a while with great results. I and am due for IPL in a few weeks. Just wondered if people were stopping RLT around the time of IPL or carrying on????

    any experiences or ideas would be welcome

    i can't speak for myself but from my knowledge I would definately continue with RLT throughout IPL sessions.

    Thanks Twickle,
    I will rumage around the archives for Iowa's posts.

    Quite nervous about the IPL but fingers crossed it will help.

    Yeah--RLT use, the day of (say, that evening) and a regular schedule of RLT in the following days only seems to speed recovery from laser treatments.

    I've only found positive results. I'm guessing because of its anti-inflammatory action so you're less red and prone to flushing in your laser recovery period.

    Haven't experienced any negative results (especially given I've had some horrible post-laser periods before RLT. I pretty much know what that feels like. ;) )

    Toleraine Soothing Light Facial Fluid for moisturizer. I don't use a special cleanser. Clonidine daily; klonopin sometimes.
    BEST and CURRENT TREATMENT I use: Low-Level Red Light Therapy LED array.
    Please feel free to PM me with your low-level red light therapy (LLRLT) questions. I'm happy to help if I can.
