Lumecca IPL 580 Diode (Skin Types III, IV)

Years of sun exposure, whether intentional or unintentional, can lead to various skin concerns such as wrinkles, pigmentation spots, redness, and rough texture. Fortunately, there is a groundbreaking light-based technology that offers a safe and non-invasive solution to restore a youthful look to the skin. Unlike traditional laser resurfacing and deep chemical peels, IPL Photo rejuvenation does not require breaking the skin’s outer layer, minimizing the risk of complications, and reducing downtime. This makes it an ideal option for individuals who cannot afford any significant recovery period.

In addition to its remarkable skin rejuvenation benefits, Lumecca IPL has shown promise in treating dry eye syndrome. Dry eye syndrome is a common condition which is characterized by insufficient lubrication on the surface of the eye, leading to discomfort, irritation, and potential damage to the cornea. Factors such as age, environmental conditions, and prolonged screen time contribute to this. In Calgary, where the weather is usually dry, windy, and the air isn’t always great, a lot of people experience dry eye syndrome.

Beware of Fake Treatments!

YHVH Medical Aesthetics is a registered provider of Inmode’s Lumecca IPL 580 Diode Technology.

How it works?

During a Lumecca treatment, a layer of cooling gel is first applied to the skin to enhance comfort and protect the surface. The patient is provided with protective goggles to shield the eyes from the intense light. The handheld IPL device is then gently placed on the skin, and the operator controls the delivery of light pulses to target the specific treatment area. With each pulse of light, patients may experience a sensation like the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. However, this discomfort is generally well tolerated, and many individuals do not require any form of analgesia during the procedure.

If desired, a topical anesthetic can be applied prior to the treatment to further minimize any discomfort. The light pulses penetrate the skin and target the specific chromophores, such as melanin or hemoglobin, depending on the treatment goal. The heat generated by the light energy stimulates collagen production, promotes skin rejuvenation, and addresses various skin concerns.

Lumecca IPL works by stimulating the meibomian glands, which are primarily responsible for producing the lipid layer of the tear film, which improves tear quality and reduces symptoms that are associated with dry eyes. Lumecca IPL is a comprehensive solution for both skin rejuvenation and addressing a bothersome eye condition.

Procedure time: IPL treatment duration varies based on the area being treated, ranging from 40 minutes for small areas to around 110 minutes for larger areas. The specific treatment time will be determined by our YHVH Medical Aesthetic Laser Technicians.

Downtime/Recovery time: IPL treatments generally require minimal downtime. Patients may experience temporary redness or mild swelling, which typically resolves within a few hours to a couple of days.

Pain level: IPL treatments may cause a sensation like a rubber band snapping against the skin. However, most patients find the discomfort tolerable, however with Triton’s cool contact technology, the pain is immediately relieved.

Number of sessions required: The number of sessions needed depends on the specific condition being treated and individual factors. Typically, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal results.

Results: After an IPL treatment, you may experience temporary redness, which typically resolves within a few hours. It’s normal for pigmentation to darken briefly before fading. As the redness subsides, you will notice improved skin texture, reduce fine lines, and minimize pore size. The treatment also targets tiny vessels, reducing their visibility and improving overall redness. With increased collagen production, your skin will appear firmer and more resilient over time.

Risks/Side effects: IPL treatments carry some potential risks and side effects. These may include temporary redness, mild swelling, and discomfort in the treated area, which usually resolve within a few hours to a couple of days. In rare cases, IPL can cause temporary or permanent changes in skin pigmentation, leading to darkening or lightening of the skin. It’s important to follow pre and post-treatment care instructions provided by our YHVH Medical Aesthetic Clinic.

Contraindications for treatment: IPL treatments have certain contraindications that should be considered. These include being pregnant, having active infections or skin conditions in the treatment area, recent sun exposure or tanning, recent use of certain medications that increase skin sensitivity to light like Accutane and Epuris, a history of skin cancer, having dark or recently tanned skin, and having open wounds or skin lesions. It is essential to inform our YHVH Medical Aesthetic Laser Technician about any relevant medical history and medications before undergoing IPL.

Booster/ Maintenance treatment: Booster and maintenance sessions are recommended to optimize and prolong IPL results. Boosters are scheduled a few months later, while maintenance treatments are done every 6 to 12 months. These sessions help sustain the benefits of IPL and keep your skin refreshed.

*All new IPL clients are required to book a complimentary consultation prior to your first appointment to ensure your candidacy for the procedure. Our Laser Aesthetician/Technician  will test your skin for any allergic reaction by applying an IPL patch before 24-48hrs of the actual treatment.*

Before & After Pictures
Frequently Asked Questions

Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) are both light-based technologies used for various cosmetic treatments, but they differ in some key aspects. Laser devices use a single wavelength of focused light to target specific skin concerns, providing precise and concentrated energy. IPL, on the other hand, uses a broad spectrum of light wavelengths to address a wider range of skin issues. Laser treatments tend to be more focused and powerful, making them suitable for precise treatments such as hair removal or tattoo removal. IPL treatments are more versatile, targeting multiple skin concerns like pigmentation, redness, and texture irregularities.

The common and expected side effects. When pigmented spots or lesions are treated with IPL the pigment actually rises through the various layers of the skin. Once pigmentation makes it to the epidermis it may appear as a black or darker spot which will eventually flake off after a few weeks.
