lumecca ipl pulsed light (ipl) therapy
what is lumecca IPL?
It is natural to feel self-conscious or troubled by skin irregularities such as age spots, thread veins and melasma, or worried about your skin’s tone and the effects of ageing, Lumecca Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can help you achieve the clear complexion you desire.
Lumecca IPL is an advanced therapy in skin rejuvenation and repair. It uses wavelengths of light to correct damaged skin, treat vascular lesions and remove skin pigments that cause unwanted changes in colour and tone. This treatment is suitable for both the face and body, helping you to combat the following concerns:
- Skin discolouration & hyperpigmentation
- Visible effects of ageing
- Vascular lesions such as spider or thread veins
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Minor fine lines and wrinkles
How does lumecca ipl work?
Your skin’s colours and shades are defined by the pigments in your skin. In simple terms, Lumecca IPL helps to eliminate any of the pigments that are causing aesthetic irregularities.
Our advanced Lumecca IPL technology diminishes their appearance by delivering specific wavelengths of intense pulsed light directly into the skin. Targeted pigments absorb this light, which destroys them, giving your skin improved clarity. The process also stimulates collagen production, helping to rejuvenate and repair the skin from concerns such as ageing, sun damage and acne scarring.
It is interesting to note that Lumecca IPL is the most powerful treatment of its kind. It delivers three times more energy than similar treatments for improved efficacy, meaning that you will most likely require less sessions to achieve your desired outcome.
How long does Lumecca IPL take to work?
Lumecca IPL treatments start to work immediately, but how long you begin to see visible results depends on your unique situation, and the concern area you are treating. In general, you should begin to see clearer, improved skin over the coming days after your session. More particularly, brown spots typically appear darker immediately after treatment. These can then flake off over the next few days, leaving fresher, clearer skin underneath.
It is important to consider that repeat treatment(s) will most likely be required to reach your final, desired result. Your practitioner will advise you on what to expect and will monitor your progress through free reviews.
