How Does IPL Skin Treatment Work?

  • The IPL laser operates using a process known as photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the IPL treatment that feels like a light elastic sensation.
  • The Lumecca IPL can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun.
  • These often include the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.



WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?

After a consultation and assessment, our amazing therapist will apply an ultrasound gel to the area being treated. The eyes will be protected with goggles and the hand piece will be applied to the skin surface to deliver the pulses of light. During the Lumecca™ treatment, there will be bright flashes of light from the Lumecca™ hand piece . Usually the treatment lasts for around 5-10 minutes and the skin will feel slightly red afterwards.


What to Expect After IPL Treatment

  • After treatment, redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal. These usually subside within an hour or two. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone.
  • After treating vascular lesions you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
  • Stimulate collagen and improve skin texture.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

At your first appointment, our therapist will assess your skin and talk through your specific requirements. she will create a bespoke treatment plan to suit you, depending on the severity of skin damage and type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) required. Usually between 1 and 3 sessions will be required depending on the severity of the sun damage present.



HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen within a few days of the first session. The skin will continue to look clearer over time with the most visible results after one to two weeks.

Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final results. For vascular treatments such as thread veins, results can often be seen immediately with optimum results visible within 2 weeks.

You may see a darkening of pigmented spots over the first 24-48 hours following your treatment. Over the course of the week the treated pigmentation will flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone.

After treatment for vascular lesions such as thread veins you may see the vein blanch and disappear, or a colour change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.


DO I NEED TO PREP MY SKIN BEFORE?

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.
