Lumecca IPL Treatment
Even skin tone is a desirable and youthful trait that can change over time. Sun damage and aging can result in skin changes, age spots, hyperpigmentation, noticeable capillaries and other skin tone variations. Intense pulsed light or IPL treatments are one of the most effective ways to eliminate unwanted sun damage and pigmentation issues that impact your skin tone. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer Lumecca IPL treatments at facilities in the greater Washington, DC area.
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy
Lumecca is a laser treatment that is performed with the InMode Optimas platform. Lumecca uses IPL to target darker pigments within the skin. This non-ablative procedure does not damage the surface of the skin like laser resurfacing and other cosmetic treatments. The light energy only targets and removes darker pigments in the skin, leaving the surrounding skin cells untouched and undamaged. Lumecca IPL treatments can be used to eliminate the following skin issues:
- Age or brown spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Vascular lesions (port wine stains)
- Superficial capillaries (spider veins)
- Sun damage
IPL treatments, or Photofacial treatments, can remove darker-pigmented cells and vascular lesions with little to no downtime. Lumecca IPL treatments can be performed in less than an hour, and you can return to your normal activities after your procedure.
Are You a Candidate for IPL Treatment?
The best candidates for IPL therapy or treatment are those that have light-colored skin that has noticeable pigmentation or sun damage. Since IPL targets darker pigments, it is not the best choice for those with darker skin. Lumecca IPL treatment is a great option for those that want a non-invasive skin procedure to improve the tone and texture of their skin.
