How IPL Treatments Work
Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion, and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operateds using a photo-thermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. The treatment requires zero downtime and is especially effective for improving the appearance of the face, neck, chest, and hands.
The Intense Pulsed Light heats the dermis and pulls pigment (brown spots) to the surface of your skin. The spots will darken and appear look like fine coffee grounds. This pigment either absorbs into the body or flakes off in the days following the treatment.
Intense Pulsed Light treatments also stimulate the skin’s collagen filling in the space around your pores. Often clients ask about “enlarged pores.” Pores do not actually become larger. They only look larger due to collage breaking down as we age. When collagen is stimulated the pores appear to shrink.
Number of Treatments
The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on your skin tone, amount of damage to be repaired and desired goal. Typically, clients need three to five treatments.
In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of
- Age Spots (red and brown pigmentations)
- Sun damage
- Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangliectasias)
Even Skin Tone!
Immediately following the treatment, you’ll see your brown spots darken. You’ll probably realize that there was more uneven pigmentation than you realized. This is a sign that the treatment is working! Over the next few days the spots will be absorbed by the body or flake off leaving revitalized skin behind.
