EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
HOW DOES LUMECCA WORK
Lumecca IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that utilizes the power of broad-spectrum light to address various skin concerns. Scientifically, it works based on the principle of selective photothermolysis.
During the treatment, the device emits pulses of broad-spectrum light that penetrate the skin's surface. This light is filtered to target specific chromophores in the skin, such as melanin (responsible for pigmentation) and hemoglobin (found in blood vessels), while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.
The targeted chromophores absorb the light energy, which is then converted into heat. This heat damages the specific target, such as pigmented spots or blood vessels, while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
Lumecca IPL works on multiple levels, addressing various skin concerns simultaneously. It effectively targets and reduces the appearance of pigmentation issues, including sunspots, freckles, and age spots. The light energy heats and breaks down excessive melanin, leading to its gradual clearance from the skin.
Additionally, Lumecca IPL is effective in treating vascular lesions, such as spider veins and redness caused by broken blood vessels. The heat energy from the light selectively coagulates the targeted blood vessels, causing them to collapse and be absorbed by the body over time.
The treatment also stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin, promoting skin rejuvenation. Increased collagen and elastin help improve skin tone, texture, and overall firmness, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
WHO IS IT SUITABLE FOR
Lumecca IPL is suitable for a wide range of individuals who wish to address specific skin concerns and improve the overall appearance of their skin. It is particularly beneficial for those experiencing issues such as:
- Pigmentation concerns: Lumecca IPL can effectively target and reduce the appearance of sunspots, freckles, age spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage or aging.
- Vascular lesions: The treatment is also effective in treating vascular lesions, including spider veins and redness caused by broken blood vessels.
- Uneven skin tone and texture: Lumecca IPL helps improve skin tone and texture by stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
- Signs of aging: Individuals looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging can benefit from Lumecca IPL's skin rejuvenation effects.
Lumecca IPL is suitable for various skin types and can be used on different areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.
