At SkinSutra, one of the top treatments available for treating common skin concerns including age spots, spider veins, and other pigmentation problems is the IPL Photofacial. After only a few quick and painless treatments, both men and women will see noticeable changes in the texture and look of their skin.

What Is The IPL Photofacial?

An IPL also known as the intense pulsed light procedure called Lumecca addresses redness and hyperpigmentation while also enhancing the general texture of your skin and even stimulating the development of collagen.

Lumecca, the most powerful laser therapy currently available, only needs one or two sessions to provide amazing results. All skin tones may safely use Lumecca, in contrast to conventional photofacials.

Although Lumecca may be applied to any part of the body without risk, it is most often used to treat vascular lesions and undesirable pigmentation on the face. Lumecca may lessen the appearance of a variety of skin conditions, including rosacea, broken capillaries, spider veins, age spots, freckles, melasma, and sun spots. After only one treatment, the majority of patients see a noticeable improvement.

How Does The Lumecca IPL Photofacial Work?

Targeting red and brown pigmentation is the goal of the Lumecca IPL laser therapy. The pigmented tissue gets heated by the light and is then destroyed. The laser doesn’t harm or have an impact on the tissue around it since it solely targets red and brown pigments.

Lumecca is the most potent and successful photofacial on the market because it securely provides up to three times the intensity of other laser pigmentation treatments.

Common IPL Photofacial Treatment Areas

Every part of the body may be treated with Lumecca IPL Photofacial. Zones that are often exposed to the sun are those that get treatment the most frequently. That said, other common areas often include: the face, neck, hands, and arms.

How Long Is The IPL Photofacial Treatment?

Your treatment will last between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the size and number of places you’re being treated. Since everyone has a distinct skin type and set of objectives, our experts will always take their time to adjust the strategy to fit your particular requirements and goals.

When Can I Expect Results After My IPL Photofacial?

After your first treatment, you’ll notice a considerable decrease in brown spots and redness, with complete benefits appearing two weeks later.

Although many individuals see a significant difference after only one treatment, we advise three sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart for the best outcomes.

What To Expect During Your IPL Photofacial In Oakville?

You and your expert will go through the therapy areas that you spoke about in your appointment first. They will then treat the desired areas with ultrasonic gel and provide you with safety eyewear. The Lumecca gadget will then be adjusted so that it is set to the proper frequency for your skin tone. The treatment region will get brief light pulses from the device.

The majority of individuals compare it to feeling an elastic band softly crack on their skin. We will then administer ice to your skin once the procedure is finished to lessen any after effects. After treatment, your skin will be irritated and temporarily feel sunburned. However this is quite normal and will go away a few hours after the treatment.

Recovery After An IPL Photofacial

The recovery period after Lumecca is brief. A few hours after treatment, the warmth and little sunburn on your skin will go away. Some individuals get very little bruising or edema. After the treatment, brown pigmentation often develops darker for a few days before flaking off or being absorbed by the body.

Any skin care you use after your Lumecca treatment should be extremely mild. That said, any chemical sunscreen should be avoided until the skin has completely recovered. Your Oakville medical expert will give you specific instructions after your treatment so you can be as prepared as possible.
