Lumecca IPL Treats Skin Pigmentation
For treating skin pigmentation, there’s almost nothing better than Lumecca IPL. It is remarkably effective at reducing and even eliminating common issues like sun damage, Rosacea, freckles, age spots, and even vascular lesions like spider veins. These types of skin concerns have been historically hard to treat, which is what makes this technology so exciting. Lumecca treatments dramatically improve your skin tone and clarity using the power of light energy.
What Causes Skin Pigmentation?
There are different types of skin pigmentation, but the majority of them are a result of 3 major factors: genetics, sun exposure, and certain medications. Unfortunately, we have little control over our genetic predisposition to skin pigmentation, but we can take steps to protect our skin from the sun and other environmental factors. We tend to see more pigmentation pop up as we age, which exacerbates the other signs of aging on the skin. By the time you’re in your 40s, you probably have a few spots you’d like to be rid of!
How Does Lumecca IPL Work?
The Lumecca platform uses IPL – or intense pulsed light – to tackle pigmentation in the skin. Specific wavelengths of light target different colors, like brown spots and redness. It eliminates them through a process called photo-thermolysis. The light energy is absorbed by the pigmented cells and ultimately destroys them. These areas form scabs and flake off the skin in a few weeks leaving new, healthy skin underneath.
How Fast Will You See Results?
Many types of pigmentation respond quickly to IPL treatment, giving you results after just one session. But typically it requires anywhere from 1-6 sessions depending on the severity (brown spots respond faster than vascular/red areas). Treatments are performed 3-4 weeks apart and take just 20-30 minutes. There’s no downtime – you might experience mild redness which dissipates in a few hours.
