IPL Skin Rejuvenation
Houston, Spring & The Woodlands IPL Skin Rejuvenation
WHAT IS LUMECCA?
Lumecca uses powerful intense-pulsed, broad band light to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. The light specifically targets red and brown within the skin. After the first treatment, patients typically notice significant improvements in the clarity of the skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:
- Reduces sun spots (brown pigmentation)
- Reduces vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (tiny vessels)
- Potential to cure rosacea and help with flushing
- Reduces redness from acne or other scarring
- Tightens pores
- Improves texture
- Reduces freckling
- Reverses sun damage
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Lumecca is most commonly used on sun-exposed skin, such as the face, neck, décolletage and shoulders. However, it can also be used on arms and legs.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER LUMECCA?
During treatment, your eyes will be covered. You will feel a snapping sensation as the light is delivered. Your skin will turn red and feel warm. This usually subsides within 1-24 hours. If you have pigmentation, you will notice that they noticeably darken. In 1-2 weeks, these areas will slough off, leading to a more even skin tone. If you have small vessels, you will notice that they may disappear during the treatment or over the days that follow. Very occasionally, some patients will develop swelling that typically lasts a day or two. In the rare patient, swelling lasts up to a week.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You will typically start to see your results in 1-2 weeks. It typically takes 2-3 sessions to achieve your desired outcome.
