If there’s one thing we want to improve in our appearance, it is usually our skin. Whether it’s from our face, legs, arms, or back of our body, it is mostly the first in line that we want to look good. There is a lot of over-the-counter skin-care product line to help improve our skin. It ranges from sunscreens, acne creams, serums, tanning, or whitening products, and the list goes on. Apart from the available oral and topical products, there are a few go-to clinical treatments that can give you a quick, easy, and effective way to achieve your desired overall outcome. Lumecca IPL treatment is one of the best ways to pamper your skin. It helps treat pigmentation and vascular lesions. Simplicity Med Spa is proud to be one of the best to have Lumecca Intense pulsed light.
Every day, our skin is enduring various types of exposure. Some are noticeably visible, while other effects show minimal to no signs of damage. There are also some instances that the side effects come in a later stage, where it is too late to recover. In worst-case scenarios, the exposures can lead to severe health risks like cancer. Taking precautionary measures like ensuring to put sunscreens every day on the skin, regular dermatological check-up, and avoiding hazardous environmental exposures are a few simple steps in maintaining healthy and risk-free skin. Other factors, like hereditary skin conditions, cannot be taken entirely away from the equation. Thus, preventive measures can help eliminate or delay the condition, especially when the treatment comes at an early stage. For example, if your skin is sensitive to ultraviolet radiation, whether it comes from sunlight or artificial light, you can easily have skin damage. In this case, the administration of extra cautionary measures like sunscreen or Lumecca IPL can help reduce your risk of skin cancer and can minimize signs of aging due to sun damage.
What is Lumecca IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)?
Lumecca Intense Pulse Light is a superior solution for a clear-looking complexion. It helps improve the appearance of red and brown pigmentation on your skin like age spots, freckles, or rosacea. It can also reduce spider veins and other forms of vascular lesions. It uses light therapy that utilizes specific wavelengths that focus on pigmented areas of your skin. The benefit of using a laser procedure is that it is precise, which safely targets the affected areas without damaging the entire process. It also helps improve skin texture, leaving a smooth-touch feel.
Lumecca IPL treatment applies to all areas of the body, making it a versatile way of treating and improving your current skin condition. The common areas that most patients go for are the zones where the sun directly hits the skin like the face, décolletage, neck, legs, hands, and arms. Most patients experience minimal to no side effects. It is also FDA-approved, making the treatment completely safe. The effects of the treatment are visible right after the procedure. However, It is advisable to have multiple sessions for better results. The number of treatment sessions relies on the severity of your skin’s condition and whether IPL therapy is for vascular or sun damage treatment. Your skin will be directly lit by the Lumecca machine that creates a light elastic sensation upon touching your skin. There is minimal downtime where you will experience redness on the skin and leaves a warm feeling. When it happens, you have nothing to worry about because it is a common effect right after the procedure. It will eventually subside within the hour, while the clear complexion is not yet visible for the first few days. After a while, the affected area will first darken and flakes off, leaving a more even skin complexion after a few weeks.
Is Lumecca’s treatment safe and effective?
For the treatment of vascular lesions, there is a gradual disappearance of the visible veins within a few days to a few weeks. One of Lumecca IPL treatment’s best advantages is that it can make your skin look younger and radiant.
Most doctors recommend IPL treatment because it covers a wide spot-size on the areas that need addressing. It has a high pulse repetition rate making the procedure fast and efficient. It also has a sapphire cooling effect that eliminates discomfort.
If you have benign pigmented lesions like dyschromia, dyschromia hyperpigmentation, melasma, angiomas, or ephelides, IPL treatment is for you. If you experience facial truncal, leg telangiectasias, rosacea, spider veins, or venous malformations, the therapy can also help you address these concerns. As a takeaway, Lumecca treatment promotes collagen production. Collagen is responsible for the youthful-looking skin. As we age, the natural collagen is also reduced to 1% each year. The more you feed your skin with collagen, the more you’ll achieve glowing skin, and it can delay signs of aging. It is one of the main ingredients for anti-aging regimens. Signs of aging are not only limited to people in their seniority years. One of the common factors that develop at an early stage is direct exposure to sunlight. Even at an early stage, you may experience fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, and this kind of skin condition is easily treated with laser therapy. It is no wonder that the cosmetic industry hails the treatment, and many patients are satisfied with the long-lasting results. For Lumecca IPL, you don’t just eliminate skin discoloration, but you’re also hitting two birds in one stone with the increased production of your collagen.
The positive result and the side effects of laser therapy are very tempting. As much as it can give you a photo-ready skin appearance, Lumecca IPL is not for everyone. There are a few limitations and screenings before you become the perfect candidate for the treatment. If your skin is sensitive to light, and you have a dark skin tone, the procedure might not be for you. If you experience skin resurfacing disorder or if your family has a history of severe scarring like keloids. Lumecca IPL treatment is still not for you, as pushing through with the therapy can escalate your current skin condition and lead to further damage. If you recently have tanning exposure or use any tanning topical creams, try resting your skin and free it from any chemicals before doing the procedure for at least a month or as your doctor’s advice. Like other medical treatments, if you are pregnant or if you suffer from any medical condition, the method is not for you. Considering other alternatives is your best option.
Having skin irregularities like blemishes does not only lower your self-esteem but can affect your daily lifestyle. Temporary solutions like covering your skin discoloration with make-ups and wearing long uncomfortable clothes to hide the affected areas of your body can somehow alleviate the reality. However, unmasking these quick and easy regimens at the end of the day brings you back from the sad truth.
In some cases, untreated skin conditions can result in a more damaging health risk. Many factors cause skin problems, scarring, and discoloration. For aesthetic purposes, Lumecca IPL treatment is perfect for a better overall appearance of your skin. To know if the procedure is right for you, Simplicity Med Spa can help you assess if you need the Lumecca IPL or another type of treatment.
