I want to break down the photofacial aka IPL in this article, there are so many new innovative treatments and it’s hard to decide what is the right treatment for you. Aesthetics is one of the most rapidly evolving fields in medicine – the concept of being able to maintain your beauty and at times change it is both fascinating and confusing.
How does a regular person step into the world of aesthetics? How do you choose the right treatment for your face and body to keep it looking natural and youthful?
One of my passions is being able to keep my clients looking natural and healthy while also understanding and having them participate in their plan of care. I like being able to break down each service and what it means in terms of treatments and outcomes.

So what is Lumecca IPL?
Lumecca is a breakthrough intense pulsed light (IPL) that delivers up to 3X more energy in the 500-600 nm range to improve efficacy for vascular and pigmented lesions. It is optimized to treat a variety of skin types and conditions with just a single session. IPL offers a gentle, long-lasting solution for visible signs of skin damage that affect the way you look. It also combines dramatic improvement with virtually no down time.

How many sessions are needed?
1-6 sessions at 3-4 week intervals
Who is a good candidate?
Anyone with the above conditions who is interested should see their Aesthetic Doctor or myself to see if IPL is right for you.
- Low cost
- Includes multiple peaks of hemoglobin absorption
- Penetrates into the skin down to a few millimeters at longer wavelengths
The IPL laser I carry is Inmode’s Lumecca. The peak power of Lumecca is higher than for most other IPL’s. Which means it is faster and more technologically advanced. If you want to see if IPL is right for you, come in for a free consult.
