IPL technology (Intense Pulsed Light)treats various skin issues, including hyperpigmentation, thread veins, and sun damage. IPL treatments also treat freckles, skin redness, vascular lesions, and more. Doctors have used standard IPL treatments since 1992, but there is a newer kid on the block. How does Lumecca compare to traditional treatments?
How Do IPL Treatments Work?
IPL devices use laser technology that emits a range of various light waves that are used to target specific skin concerns. Doctors can use IPL treatments to interact with melanin, hemoglobin, blood vessels, and pigmented cells to eliminate hyperpigmentation and even the skin tone.
The targeted areas absorb the light energy, damaging blood vessels or breaking up melanin. These skin imperfections are then absorbed by the body, making them less noticeable over time and sometimes causing them to disappear entirely.
IPL treatments are so targeted they do not cause damage to any other area of the body, so they can be fine tuned to treat even the most minute of skin imperfections. IPL can treat the face, hands, neck, and chest.
What to Expect During IPL Treatment
During your IPL treatment, the only thing you will be required to do is lie back and get comfortable. You will be given protective eyewear that you must keep on to protect your eyes from the bright light. Dr. D’Andra Lee MSN, APRN, FNP-C will apply a cooling gel to the treatment area first, along with the cool glass treatment plate.
You should not feel any pain but may sense a slight stinging sensation as the pulses of light move from the IPL machine into your skin. The entire treatment will last 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
What Is Lumecca & What Makes It Stand Apart From Standard IPL?
