What is skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation refers to tightening and toning your skin, brightening your complexion, and diminishing the signs of sun damage.
The experienced providers at Garcia Weight Loss Aesthetics & Hormone Therapy treat age spots and other patches of hyperpigmented skin using today’s most advanced technology, the Lumecca™ IPL device by Inmode.
What problems are treated during skin rejuvenation with Lumecca?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments are called photofacials because they target hyperpigmented areas caused by sunlight. However, they also treat red and purple areas resulting from vein problems.
Your provider may recommend skin rejuvenation with Lumecca to eliminate:
- Age spots (sun spots)
- Enlarged pores
- Spider veins
- Actinic keratosis (gray-brown precancerous lesions)
The Lumecca safely treats discolored areas anywhere on your body, with the most common being the face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, and legs.
How does skin rejuvenation with Lumecca work?
Your provider uses a handheld device to send the IPL into your skin. Red, blue, brown, gray, and other hyperpigmented areas absorb the energy, causing the pigmented tissues to break into tiny particles. As your body clears the waste, the discolored spot disappears for good.
IPL treatments send out multiple wavelengths, allowing your provider to customize your skin rejuvenation and treat several pigments simultaneously. Lumecca also has benefits that aren’t found in other IPL devices, including:
Fewer treatments needed
Lumecca delivers up to three times more energy, making it more effective and allowing you to achieve optimal results in 2-3 treatments. By comparison, standard IPLs require 4-6 treatments to get the same results.
Shorter treatment sessions
Your IPL sessions are shorter because Lumecca has a high pulse rate and a larger spot size, allowing your provider to treat larger areas at a faster pace.
The Lumecca is equipped with a special cooling tip that substantially minimizes any discomfort.
What happens after my skin rejuvenation treatment?
After a Lumecca treatment, your face may look slightly flushed or like you have a mild sunburn. You won’t feel much discomfort, and the redness disappears quickly, so you can return to your daily routine after you leave the office.
Your skin may improve with one session, but most people need several, depending on the severity and extent of their skin damage.
