How the Lumecca IPL Photofacial can change your life

A variety of avoidable and unavoidable lifestyle factors, like sun exposure and the aging process, can cause all sorts of unaesthetic consequences. But Lumecca photofacial therapy can address this entire range of complexion complications.

It’s also known as an IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial, meaning it utilizes precise pulses of light energy that reach through the epidermis, or the surface layer of your skin, to target the darker spots of hyperpigmentation below. The inherent power of light triggers the body’s regenerative processes and stimulates cell recycling. So, your skin revitalizes itself from the inside out, and you avoid the hassle of a surgical cosmetic procedure while enjoying all (and more) of its benefits.

A photofacial boasts almost unmatched versatility, effectiveness, and ease. And it’s not just for dark patches caused by sun exposure or for types of hyperpigmentation. It can treat the unsightly broken or dilated capillaries that can spoil your skin. It can also soothe the redness of rosacea or flushing. And it can diminish the appearance of freckles and the age spots that form as the years pass us by.

The benefits of intense pulsed light treatment

Photofacial techniques let you skip the scalpel and reap all the rewards of natural, light-induced healing. It’s noninvasive and doesn’t require a surgeon cutting or removing anything. Instead, lasers work in concert with the body’s adaptive processes to stimulate and accelerate cellular regeneration in Dallas, TX.

The heating pulses of light focus solely on the treatment areas, ensuring that all that stimulating energy goes where it’s needed and not in the surrounding areas. Once the laser’s energy has been absorbed into the deeper dermal layers, it literally lifts the hyperpigmentation from your skin. This forces it to the surface, where the body disposes it through exfoliation.

A Lumecca treatment at Evolve Med Spa is as quick as it is effective. It only takes about 20 – 30 minutes and requires virtually no downtime afterward. You’ll possibly experience a bit of swelling and reddening or pinkening of the skin, but it should dissipate in a day or so. And over the next several days, you’ll see the deeper imperfections rise to the top of the skin and then naturally flake away. It’s recommended you use a lotion during the recovery period and potentially anti-inflammatory medication. It’s also vital that you avoid unprotected sun exposure. And resist the urge to pick at any flaking skin, to prevent damaging your freshly treated skin.
