LASER TREATMENTS

 

LUMECCA IPL

Lumecca IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is the most powerful light therapy used to treat dark pigmented and vascular lesions.

 

What does IPL treat?

Lumecca IPL reduces and removes the appearance of age spots, freckles, sun damaged skin, spider veins, vascular lesions, and rosacea. 

 

This treatment works extremely well on your face, neck, back, chest, décolletage, legs, shoulders, and hands.

 

(We personally LOVE the results on the hands, décolletage, and face!)

 

How long does the procedure take?

Each treatment takes about 20-30 minutes per area. Most patients notice an improvement in skin appearance after just one session. Lumecca IPL offers the best results with 3 treatments spaced approximately one month apart. 

 

​What should I expect during my Lumecca IPL treatment?

Expect to see a bright flash of light with each pulse followed by a quick elastic sensation. After the treatment is completed we treat your skin to a hydrating cooling mask and SPF to block any new exposure to sun.

 

How long is the recovery process?

Your skin may flush and feel warm for about an hour after the treatment and makeup can be gently applied immediately.  

Pigmented lesions darken over the following week until completely flaking off.

 

Heads up!

This treatment may not be right for you if you are prone to thick or raised keloid scarring. Our physicians will discuss all contraindications with you during your consultation.
