Beautiful skin is not a given. In other words, most of us have to work at it, and when we start getting older, sun damage creeps in, and general aging takes hold. That is why advanced beauty treatments like Lumecca IPL facials can transform the complexions of clients with light to medium skin tones. The treatment features a broad spectrum of scattered light to address a variety of skin care issues. The technique is safe with little to no downtime.
Gentle Pulses of Light
A Lumecca IPL facial offers multiple benefits of rejuvenation via light pulses directed evenly over the skin. This pulsed light energy from the handheld device is able to penetrate through the epidermis and deeper into the dermis. The technology was developed to treat sun damage like freckles, age spots, pigmentation issues, rough skin texture and wrinkles, but it can also effectively target rosacea, spider veins, and enlarged pores. The gentle but powerful light pulses heat up the damaged skin irregularities, zap them, and they slowly fade away. An IPL facial is nonablative, and that means that no skin is removed during the treatment.
Prepping for Your IPL Facial
You will be given a pair of protective eyewear to shield you from the flashes of light. Also, the treatment area will receive the application of a cool gel to keep the epidermis comfortable during the procedure and to lubricate the aesthetic technician’s handheld device.
For most clients, there are very few side effects if any post-treatment, and they return to their daily routines. For some, redness and brown spots develop, but these are common and may take up to a week to disappear.
Skin care experts recommend that the client apply sunblock for two weeks following an IPL facial until the treated skin has time to fully heal. Fans of Lumecca IPL facials like the results they describe as a smoother, more evenly toned complexion with a more youthful appearance.
Let’s face it; a lot of us are super busy these days and don’t have the luxury of time to recover from intensive laser procedures.
