The pursuit of healthy, young-looking, glowing skin never stops. This is something that women around the world greatly struggle to achieve. Aging is a natural process, and with it comes a lot of changes to the skin. For some more, for some less visible, these changes can have a different influence on a person. This is just one of the many different reasons why the skincare and dermatology industry is constantly improving, developing, and changing, always looking for new treatments and techniques that will bring better and more long-lasting results.
Very skin type is different, and with that comes its different skin condition. Some fight different skin changes, some redness and infections, some acne, and many more things. And while there are specialized treatments for any different condition, in terms of improving the overall look of the skin, the one treatment that is currently standing out is the Lumecca IPL treatment.
What makes the Lumecca IPL treatment different from other similar treatments?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is known as the most effective treatment for redness and hyperpigmentation for fair skin tones. As a technology, it offers the most advanced treatment in this particular field. It also requires fewer sessions, for example, 3 to 5, which is much better that the other IPL devices that require 6 to 8 treatments.
Who can try the IPL treatment?
The IPL treatment is most suitable for those who are looking to reduce the signs of premature aging, rejuvenate their skin, and treat pigmentation that is caused by sun damage. This treatment works best and delivers the best results on fair to medium skin tones.
Are there any side effects?
The first and the most notable results that are seen after the treatment are some redness and some darkening of the pigmented spots. Finding the right timing is essential for this type of treatment. It is suggested to schedule the treatment when the skin tone is at its base and when it is not tanned. The results will become visible in one to two weeks. The effects will continue to improve over time, and the best results will be visible within a month from the last treatment.
The process of IPL treatment
The IPL can be adjusted in terms of intensity, which can lead to some pain and uncomfortability. The face is covered with cooling gel, and the IPL treatment happens through the gel. The most common feeling the patients feel is a little bit of heat and like a medium rubber band snapping.
Is there an aftercare process?
Every skin type is different and reacts differently to different treatments. A bit of redness is definitely expected. It is suggested to skip the use of retinol products for about a week after the treatment and switch to heavy moisturizer. Staying away from the sun will only support the process. In the first 24 hours after the treatment, it is best to avoid strong ingredients that might cause some irritation, like vitamin C, AHAs, etc.
