Improve skin blemishes and rejuvenate your skin with safe, highly advanced IPL treatments. Lumecca IPL in San Luis Obispo is a treatment that addresses pigmentation irregularities, vascular skin lesions, and a range of other issues. This powerful treatment requires minimal recovery and achieves effective, outstanding results.

Lumecca IPL – a unique, advanced treatment

Lumecca IPL in San Luis Obispo attracts pigment far more effectively while requiring less energy. This causes less discomfort for patients and also results in a shorter recovery period, with a lower risk of potential skin damage. Treatments work more quickly than other IPL devices, usually requiring only two treatments instead of 5-6, which is the usual.

What skin concerns are treated with Lumecca IPL?

The following skin concerns can be improved or resolved with Lumecca IPL treatments:

  • Sun damage, age spots, and other pigmentation concerns
  • Vascular lesions
  • Rosacea 
  • Broken capillaries
  • Acne scars

What happens during the Lumecca IPL treatment? 

The treatments start with a cooling gel applied to your face, and will also supply you with protective eyewear. The Lumecca IPL handheld device is then passed over your skin, and its wavelengths selectively penetrate the IPL into the deeper layers of your skin. 

The pigmented cells absorb the light, which destroys them. They are broken down into tiny particles that are flushed away naturally by the body. The surrounding skin is left free of damage.

The light flashes are described as similar to the feeling of a rubber band snap on the skin. Most patients do not describe the treatment to be painful. Treatment time is about 20 minutes.

Am I a candidate for Lumecca IPL treatments? 

Lumecca IPL treatments are safe for men or women with skin concerns, particularly pigmentation issues. Ideal candidates should meet the following requirements:

  • Are not taking Accutane 
  • Are not pregnant 
  • Are not recently tanned
  • Are not using a retinoid cream
  • Do not have a current skin infection
  • Have no severe scarring issues

Benefits of Lumecca IPL in San Luis Obispo

A number of benefits are provided by Lumecca IPL treatments:

  • Non-invasive 
  • Short recovery period
  • Ideal for light and dark skin tones
  • Sapphire cooling tip makes the procedure more comfortable
  • Smoother, more even skin texture and tone
  • Revitalized skin
  • Resolved pigmentation concerns
  • Reduced rosacea 
  • Improved acne scarring

Recovery 

Once your treatment is complete, your skin will feel somewhat like it has been sunburned. Expect itching, swelling, or redness, which will pass by the next day. 

After about a day, you can continue with your usual activities and return to work, and wear makeup again. 

The pigmented areas will get darker, which is a natural part of the healing process. These areas will raise and eventually flake off as the healthy skin beneath is revealed. Do not pick at these areas. Your skin will continue to improve over the next 1-2 weeks.

Results

After 1-2 weeks, your final results will appear. For some, one treatment will achieve their aesthetic goals for their skin. For others, more than one treatment may be needed, depending on your skin type and the level of skin damage, and whether you’re trying to resolve a vascular condition or concerns caused by sun damage.

Once the treatment or necessary further treatments are complete, your pigmentation concerns will be resolved, and the skin will be smoother, more radiant, and glowing. To maintain your results, we recommend a Lumecca IPL in San Luis Obispo every 6-12 months.
