One of the classic hallmarks of health and beauty is blemish-free, young-looking skin. Do you wish to erase the unwanted signs of skin aging and sun damage through modern skin treatments? Smooth, blemish-free skin awaits you. Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, such as Lumecca IPL, are now available at Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL. Our friendly staff is here to give you optimum cosmetic solutions that put your comfort and satisfaction first.
What Is Lumecca IPL?
We’re proud to offer Lumecca IPL, one of the most effective and advanced skin treatments for achieving blemish-free, clear sin. The technology uses higher maximum pulsed light power to deliver superior results and treatment outcomes, leading to shorter treatment time and more visible results.
The device used in the treatment emits precise wavelengths of light that interact with and destroy skin pigments. After only one session, unwanted pigments that cause skin imperfections are absorbed and eliminated, giving you visible improvements in just a few appointments.
The Benefits of the Treatment
Lumecca IPL’s sophisticated technology makes it superior to any other IPL provider in the market. We perform the treatment using a unique handpiece with a xenon flash lamp. The flash lamp works by emitting precise wavelengths of light that heats the targeted tissue without affecting or damaging surrounding regions. This feature makes the treatment comfortable, versatile, and accurate since we can control the range of wavelengths produced.
Suitable for Different Skin Types and Conditions
In darker skin types, traditional IPL is often not recommended. The reason is that the darker the pigment, the harder it is for a conventional laser to target and break them down. However, if you have light or dark skin, you can rely on Lumecca’s advanced technology. It has a wide range of wavelengths suitable for treating various skin areas and skin conditions.
Comfortable and Safe
Lumecca IPL features an intense cooling sapphire that’s designed to protect the surface of the skin. This feature makes the treatment safe and comfortable. It eliminates and prevents any unpleasant sensations and sensitivity in the treated area. Additionally, IPL treatments are much shorter with Lumecca technology.
Provides Fast Results
Common IPL treatments generally take at least four to six sessions before you see noteworthy results. Thanks to the innovative technology from Lumecca, you can achieve the same results in as few as one to two sessions. Lumecca utilizes a broader range of wavelengths to improve the effectiveness of treatments and speed up the healthy regeneration of new skin cells.
What Areas and Skin Conditions Does Lumecca IPL Treat?
The treatment can be performed on virtually all parts of the body. The most popular treatment areas are those that are often exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, legs, hand, and arms. The skin conditions that we can treat using IPL include:
Do you have patches of skin that are significantly darker than the surrounding areas? Hyperpigmentation occurs when you have overabundant skin pigmentation. IPL can directly target and destroy overabundant pigments in the skin so you can have a more even skin tone.
Flat, dark spots on the skin due to sun exposure and aging are referred to as sun spots or liver spots. They are often visible in the face, chest, and hands. To smoothen and erase the spots, you can take advantage of IPL treatment and have younger-looking, blemish-free skin.
Rosacea usually affects the face, including the forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks. It is characterized by excessively red, sensitive skin. When you’re experiencing a rosacea flare-up, you may notice bumps and uneven skin texture. IPL treatments can alleviate your symptoms of rosacea and decrease them.
Do you have tiny, brown blotches on your skin? Freckles occur due to the formation of melanin cell clusters within the skin. This condition can be caused by excessive exposure to the sun or genetics. Freckles are more common among those who have light skin tones.
Increased exposure to the sun and changing hormones can cause melasma. This condition is more commonly found in women, manifesting as uneven brown patches on the cheeks, forehead, nasal bridge, upper lip, and chin.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Lumecca treatments are safe, convenient, and comfortable. You’ll be lying down at our clinic during the treatment, and we will cover your eyes for protection. You’ll receive protective eyewear or eye pads. A cool gel is applied to the areas requiring treatment, and you’ll only feel the machine’s cool glass gliding over your skin. The average session takes about an hour.
Number of Sessions Required
After the first session, you should see visible improvements in your skin condition. The outcomes of the treatment are designed to keep on improving as you go through more sessions.
We’ll customize a treatment plan for you based on your skin types, cosmetic issues, and goals for the treatment. After several sessions, you should have the final result of the treatment, which is younger and brighter-looking skin.
Are You an Ideal Candidate for the Treatment?
If you have uneven, sun-damaged skin, you are likely to be a good candidate for this type of treatment. Those who have rosacea will also see visible improvements and a reduction of their flare-ups after IPL treatment.
However, people with tanned skin are not ideal candidates for IPL treatment. If you’re taking Accutane, are pregnant, or have chronic health conditions, we may advise you to postpone the treatment or consider other options. Overall, you should be in good health to safely avail of the treatment. We will conduct a consultation to set your expectations and learn about your cosmetic goals.
