Laser Skin Rejuvenation With IPL
If you’re struggling with sun damaged skin or other hyperpigmentation, then you know how hard it can be to reverse. You’ve probably tried countless creams and serums with barely any noticeable change. The truth is that these pigmented skin areas are extremely difficult to treat with traditional at home skincare, and your best bet is to try professional grade treatments. We offer a variety of options for addressing pigmentation, but the gold standard is laser skin rejuvenation with IPL. You won’t believe the results you can get with this type of treatment! Most patients easily take 10-15 years off their appearance in just a few sessions.
What Causes Hyperpigmentation?
The biggest contributor to hyperpigmentation is sun damage, which means you should be wearing sunscreen every day. What’s more, this type of damage develops under the skin and may not make its way to the surface for several years. In other words, the damage you see on your face today was likely from too much exposure long in the past.
Another factor that contributes to pigmentation in the skin is simply age. Over time, the amount of melanin producing cells we have decreases, but the ones that are left tend to cluster together and concentrate in an area leading to age spots.
How Does Laser Skin Rejuvenation Work?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light which is a type of laser energy. Specific wavelengths target brown and red pigment and essentially destroy those damaged cells in a process called photothermolysis. With Lumecca’s powerful platform, we can deliver more targeted energy to the treatment areas, making a single session more effective than ever. People report a light snapping sensation during treatment, but it’s not particularly painful. After treatment, the pigmented areas will darken and then scab and slough off, leaving new youthful skin underneath. This initial process typically takes a few days up to a week, but results continue to improve over the next few weeks and after successive treatments.
