    What are Lumecca IPL PhotoFacials?

    Lumecca IPL photo facials are a form of light therapy used to improve the appearance of the skin. The light from the device is absorbed by the pigment in the skin, which helps to break up any unwanted blemishes or pigmentation. Used to treat several different skin concerns, including sun damage, age spots, rosacea, and redness, the treatments are typically completed over several weeks, with each session lasting for about 20 minutes.

    If you're looking for a way to improve the appearance of your skin, Lumecca IPL photo facials may be a good option for you.

    IPL vs IPL Photofacials

    IPL therapy is a type of light therapy that uses broadband light to treat various skin concerns. IPL photofacials specifically target the face and are used to improve the appearance of the skin.

    IPL therapy is sometimes confused with laser therapy. However, there are some key differences between the two. IPL uses powerful broadband light, while lasers use a single wavelength of light. This means that IPL can be used to treat a wider range of skin concerns.

    IPL photofacials are often used to treat sun damage, age spots, rosacea, and redness. The treatments are typically done over several weeks, and each session lasts for about 20 minutes.

    If you're looking for a way to improve the appearance of your skin, IPL photofacials may be a good option for you.

    Benefits of Lumecca IPL PhotoFacials

    Lumecca IPL photo facials can offer a number of benefits for those looking to improve their complexion. The treatments can improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. IPL photo facials can also help to:

    • Reduce the appearance of pigmentation and sun damage
    • Stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, more youthful appearing skin
    • Shrink enlarged pores
    • Reduce redness and inflammation
    • Improve the overall tone and texture of the skin

    Lumecca IPL photo facials are a great way to achieve all of these benefits without having to undergo more invasive procedures. The treatments are relatively quick and easy, with most sessions taking less than an hour to complete. There is also no downtime required after treatment, so you can immediately resume your normal activities.

    Am I a candidate for a Lumecca IPL PhotoFacial?

    Most people are good candidates for Lumecca IPL photo facials.

    The treatments can be used on a broad range of skin types and tones, except those with very dark skin. The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for the treatment is to schedule a consultation with one of our qualified providers.

    Consultation and Preparation

    During your consultation, your provider will assess your skin type and condition to determine if Lumecca IPL photo facials are right for you. If you are a good candidate for the treatment, your provider will develop a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.

    Preparation for your Lumecca IPL photo facial is relatively simple. You will need to avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks prior to treatment. This will help to ensure that your skin is not too tan, which could increase the risk of side effects. You should also avoid using any products that contain retinol or other exfoliating agents for at least one week before treatment.

    Procedure

    Lumecca IPL photo facials are relatively quick and easy, with most sessions taking less than an hour to complete. The treatment is performed in Boston Medical Aesthetic's office and does not require any anesthesia.

    During the procedure, your provider will apply a protective eye shield and a gel to your skin to both improve patient comfort and the effectiveness of the procedure. The provider will place the handpiece of the Lumecca device against your skin. The handpiece will fire powerful bursts of light into your skin, which will be absorbed by the melanin or pigment. The light energy will then work to break up the pigmentation which is then absorbed by the body.

    After the treatment is complete, your provider will remove the gel and apply a cooling agent to your skin. Redness and swelling may occur after the treatment, but they will go away within a few hours.

    Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

    You will begin to see results from your Lumecca IPL photo facial treatments within a few days as the pigmentation begins to fade. However, it may take a few weeks or months for the full results of the treatment to be evident.

    There is no downtime following treatment, so you may immediately return to your regular routine. However, you should avoid the sun for at least two weeks after therapy. You should also apply sunscreen, with an SPF of 30 or higher, daily to help protect your skin from further damage.

    It is important to note that Lumecca IPL photo facials are not a one-time treatment. Most people will need to undergo a series of treatments to achieve their desired results. The number of treatments you will need will depend on your skin condition and goals.
