Laser Treatments

IPL with Lumecca

Photofacial treatment in Burlingame, CA.

Lumecca is an intense pulse light (IPL) that delivers up to 3 times the energy in the 500-600 nm range. IPL is described as technology that is used by cosmetic and medical care providers to perform a variety of skin treatments for both aesthetic and therapeutic reasons.

It is optimized for clinicians to treat a number of different skin types and conditions, with results that can be seen after just one session. Lumecca can treat pigmentation issues, sun damage, and vascular lesions. The goal of the treatment is to help patients achieve clear, beautiful skin in as little time as possible. Lumecca is also a good treatment for skin care concerns like redness, acne scars, and rosacea, as well as broken capillaries and hyper-pigmentation. It involves a less invasive laser that has been carefully adjusted to look for specific pigments in the skin like redness, darker and discolored patches, or dark spots from acne scarring.

What To Expect

During the treatment, there is a bright flash of light which feels like a light elastic sensation. The treatment is painless, short (about 45 minutes), and requires no downtime. In fact, many of our patients are able to continue their day right afterward (though their skin will be slightly red). They also notice, just days after their first treatment, that the little age spots or freckles are gone or the redness in their cheeks has lessened.

A series of treatments, typically 4-6 sessions, is needed to be able to see a visible improvement. Most of our patients don’t experience side effects, and any skin reactions typically resolve within a few hours of the initial treatment. Patients may find they have more sensitivity to sunlight immediately after the treatment. You should definitely avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
