If you have been struggling with removing acne scars, sun spots, or wrinkles, Lumecca IPL could be the treatment for you.

What Lumecca IPL Is
Lumecca IPL is a non-invasive treatment with many benefits that reduces hyperpigmentation and evens out the skin tone. For example, IPL can help reduce the signs of sun damage that are making you look older.
IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light treatment, targets certain colors in your skin, whether that skin is darker from acne scarring or sun exposure. It works by heating the skin, triggering the body to get rid of unwanted cells, such as those making your skin uneven.
Therefore, Lumecca IPL benefits those who are looking to perfect the texture of their skin.
The laser, which is part of the InMode series of machines, sends out pulsating light to heat the skin, hence its name, intense pulsed light treatment, which provides specific benefits.
Additionally, since more than one wavelength of light is emitted, Lumecca IPL can treat more than just one irregularity in the skin.
Since the treatment is non-invasive, there is little to no downtime after the treatment. However, since IPL is a laser treatment, it will leave the skin sensitive.
Lumecca IPL Benefits
There are several benefits that Lumecca IPL treatment provides for your skin and anti-aging goals.
The first Lumecca IPL benefit is that the treatment is highly efficient, meaning it can be quickly while still providing transformative results.
The treatment lasts an average of 30 minutes, making it convenient for anyone. The treatment is so fast because of the “ large spot size and high pulse repetition rate .”
The Lumecca IPL treatment is overall more powerful than most other IPL treatments on the market.
This brings us to the second Lumecca IPL benefit, which is that it can be done in 1-2 treatments rather than other IPL treatments, which can take up to 6 treatment sessions.
The third Lumecca IPL benefit is that it is more comfortable than other IPL treatments because of the sapphire cooling tip.
In general, IPL is not painless, and clients usually feel a level of discomfort.
However, the sensation is not unbearable. Most patients compare it to being slapped with a rubber band.
After the treatment, your skin may feel tight as if you have been sunburnt, but this feeling should subside within a few hours.
What To Expect When Getting Lumecca IPL
As previously mentioned in this article, Lumecca IPL is a quick and easy procedure. However, knowing what to expect may ease any nerves you may have going into the treatment.
Before going in for your treatment session, avoid a lot of sun exposure for about four weeks prior, such as tanning.
Additionally, avoid using any peels or harsh chemicals before the treatment. It is also a good idea to avoid waxing before getting IPL.
Finally, be aware of what medications you are taking before the treatment as some, such as aspirin, can increase bleeding.
At the appointment, you can choose to apply a numbing cream to decrease the amount of discomfort you feel during the treatment. The cream will have to stay on for about thirty minutes to an hour before your treatment session.
Then, a gel will be rubbed on your skin, which should be clean and free of any makeup. You will also have to wear glasses to protect your eyes from the light.
The session will last anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated.
We recommend avoiding heat exposure right after your treatment.
For example, you should avoid taking very hot showers or spending an extended amount of time in the sun. In the same regard, always wear sunscreen when going outside to protect your skin from sun exposure.
Since the skin will remain sensitive, avoid any abrasive treatments or skincare, such as deep exfoliation.
For aftercare, we recommend keeping the skin moisturized with moisturizers and serums and cleansing it with a gentle cleanser.
How Must Lumecca IPL Costs
Here at Laureate LA, Lumecca IPL costs $200 per session and $1000 for six sessions.
Since Lumecca IPL is so effective with only a few treatment sessions, you may only have to do one or two sessions.
Therefore, by investing in a high-quality, high-efficiency treatment like Lumecca IPL, you likely have to pay for fewer treatment sessions.
However, depending on your skincare goals, the number of sessions a client may need will vary.
