Uneven skin tone and other irregularities can sometimes make us look older than we really are. Some visible signs of aging and hyperpigmentation can be difficult to cover with makeup, and this can lead to lower self-esteem. If you are suffering from problems with your complexion, we encourage you to consider an IPL treatment with Lumecca.
At Center for Women’s Health, we strive to help our patients achieve their goals to be confident and happy. With InMode’s Lumecca, our IPL treatment can help you get there. Visit us in Oxford, NC to learn more, or contact us today to schedule your consultation!
What is IPL?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light, and it is a non-invasive way to even the skin tone and clear up other irregularities. The light energy from the device is absorbed by the targeted skin blemish, which is then removed by the body. If the device is targeting a vascular lesion, then the visible blood vessels are what absorbs the light energy. If the device is targeting pigmentation issues, then the melanin absorbs the light energy.
The Benefits of Lumecca
The Lumecca device is much more powerful than other IPL devices available, which means you will need less treatments to achieve the results you want. You can reduce the appearance of multiple different skin concerns, including:
- Brown and red spots
- Facial spider veins and other vascular lesions
- Redness (rosacea)
- Sun damage
This device can be used to treat these visible signs of aging all over the body. While it is most commonly used on the face, some of our patients receive treatments on the hands as well. Virtually any area that has been exposed to sun often throughout the years can benefit from a Lumecca IPL treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Our professionals can discuss with you the specific qualifiers when you visit us for your consultation. There are, however, a few things you should know before you schedule your visit. It is important that you have fair skin and have not sun tanned before your treatment, since the IPL device targets melanin.
The best candidates are individuals who are dissatisfied with their uneven or irregular skin tone. It is also important to have realistic expectations and to understand that it may be necessary to receive up to three treatments to reach your goals.
