Everyone wants bright and youthful looking skin. Over time, however, the sun, lifestyle factors and the natural aging process damage the skin, robbing it of its natural glow and causing the development of fine lines, broken capillaries and brown spots. Thanks to Lummeca IPL treatment, it is possible to safely and quickly take years off the face, restoring a brighter and clearer complexion.
Lummeca is a state-of-the-art intense pulsed light system designed to rejuvenate the skin and reduce the appearance of redness, dark spots and large pores. Pigmented areas near the surface of the skin absorb concentrated light during treatments, while surrounding areas of the skin are left undamaged. The result is a significant reduction in the appearance of vascular and pigmented lesions, as well as improved skin texture and tone.
Did you know…
the FDA endorses intense pulsed light treatments as both safe and effective for aesthetic and cosmetic purposes when administered according to manufacturer instructions by a skilled clinician? IPL has been around for more than 20 years and received FDA clearance in 1995. Since then, the technology has evolved and improved, providing greater versatility and outcomes than ever before.
Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Lummeca superior to other types of IPL treatments?
Lummeca’s revolutionary photorejuvenation system boasts a rapid pulse repetition that is capable of delivering 40 percent of its pulsed energy between 500 and 600 nanometers as opposed to competing IPL treatments, which only deliver 10 to 15 percent of their pulsed energy in this targeted range. The result is greater absorption of melanin and hemoglobin and faster overall results. In fact, most patients achieve desired results in just one or two sessions compared to four or five sessions with other types of IPL treatment.
What should I expect during a Lummeca IPL treatment?
The Lummeca IPL wand utilizes a sapphire tip that uses advanced cooling technology during treatment. This virtually eliminates any discomfort, making Lummeca IPL a safe and pain-free way to treat skin pigmentation.
What should I expect after treatment is complete?
Lummeca does not cause any downtime for most patients. In fact, you can re-apply your make-up after treatment. Keep in mind that brown spots may become slightly darker immediately following treatment. This is temporary, as these treated areas will gradually slough away, revealing smooth, glowing and even skin beneath.
