What are IPL Photofacials?
Lumecca™ by Inmode provides the treatment known as IPL Photofacials, also known as Pulsed Light Therapy. This involves a handheld device that emits pulses of broad-spectrum light through direct contact with the skin. It acts on the deeper layers of skin, making it ideal for treating broken capillaries, sun damage, and other impurities.
Lumecca™ is a breakthrough intense pulsed light (IPL) that delivers up to 3X more energy to improve efficacy for vascular and pigmented lesions. It is optimized for the treatment of a variety of lesions with fewer sessions. It is the ultimate solution to rejuvenate your skin.
Lumecca™ by Inmode improves the appearance of acne, facial lines, wrinkles, freckles, and age marks. It improves vascular lesions, including spider telangiectasis, port wine stains, broken facial veins, rosy cheeks, rosacea, and red thread veins of the legs.
How Does It Work?
Lumecca™ is the most powerful intense pulsed light to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. It is the ultimate solution to rejuvenate your skin.
Lumecca™ operates using photo thermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of the comfortable light treatment.
After one use, patients will notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin.
The advantage of Lumecca™ IPL therapy is its minimal downtime – a patient can often have the procedure done in their lunch break and return to work immediately afterwards.
After one use patients will notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin.
Your skincare specialist first cleans the area that is being treated. Then they rub a cool gel onto your skin. They apply light pulses from the IPL device to your skin. During your treatment, you will need to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes.
The pulses might sting your skin. Some people liken the feeling to being snapped with a rubber band.
Depending on which part of your body is being treated and how large the area is, the treatment should take 20 to 30 minutes. To get the results you want, treatments should be spaced about one month apart to let your skin heal in between.
Common areas you can treat are usually areas exposed to sunlight. It often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and subsides within an hour. Over the course of the next 24-48 hours after treatment, you may see a darkening of pigmented spots.
Frequently Ask Questions
Are you considering IPL Photocials treatments for the first time?
Here are a few questions and answers that may help you decide.
Is IPL Photofacials safe?
IPL-based technology is generally considered a safe procedure as potentially harmful ultraviolet radiation is typically filtered by blocking wavelengths below 500 mm, although there are unwanted effects associated with the treatment.
How long does IPL take to heal?
Makeup can be used starting right after the treatment, as long as it is applied and removed very gently. Rarely, there is bruising, which can take 1-2 weeks to heal. For freckles and age spots, it is normal for the spots to look darker for 3-7 days
Is there any downtime with IPL Photofacials?
No. Unlike with most laser treatment, which often requires a few days of recovery as a result of extreme redness, blistering and peeling, an IPL treatment requires no downtime, appearing in most cases as if one has just a slight sunburn or exercised on a cardio machine for an hour.
