What is Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)?

Lumecca (Pigment):

IPL LUMECCA (pigment) treatment is based on principles of selective photothermolysis. The light penetrates the skin and is selectively absorbed by lesion chromophores (melanin) having darker color than surrounding tissue. Absorbed energy is converted into heat, coagulating the lesion which fades during a few weeks following the treatment. Multiple treatment sessions may be required for best results. Indications for use of the LUMECCA (pigment) handpieces are intended for treatment of superficial pigmented lesions on skin type I to IV.

The number of treatments is typically varied form 1-3 sessions spaced out 4-6 weeks.

Lumecca (Vascular):

IPL LUMECCA (vascular) treatment is based on principles of selective photothermolysis. The light penetrates the skin and is selectively absorbed by lesion chromophore (hemoglobin) having darker color than surrounding tissue. Absorbed energy is converted into heat, coagulating the lesion which fades during a few weeks following the treatment. Multiple treatment sessions may be required for best results. Indications for Use The LUMECCA (vascular) Handpieces are intended for treatment of superficial vascular lesions on skin type I to IV.

The number of treatments is typically varied form 1-3 sessions spaced out 4-6weeks.

Lumecca (Photofacial):

IPL LUMECCA (photofacial) treatment is based on principles of selective photothermolysis. The light penetrates the skin and is selectively absorbed by lesion chromophore (melanin and hemoglobin) having darker color than surrounding tissue. Absorbed energy is converted into heat, coagulating the lesion which fades during a few weeks following the treatment. Multiple treatment sessions may be required for best results. Indications for Use The LUMECCA (photofacial) Handpieces are intended for a combination treatment combating superficial vascular and pigmented lesions on skin type I to IV.

The number of treatments is typically varied form 1-3 sessions spaced out 4-6weeks.
