Age, sun, and stress leave their marks on our skin, causing our complexion to become less vibrant over time. If you’ve considered rejuvenating your skin by getting rid of age spots, acne scars, and other signs of skin aging, you’ve likely heard of IPL (also known as photofacial). One of the best ways to eliminate these imperfections and regain a clear and healthy complexion is through light therapy. We are pleased to provide intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments to patients in Chesterton, IN.
Lumecca is a breakthrough intense pulsed light (IPL) that delivers up to 3X more energy. It is a safe, non-surgical way to deliver complete photo rejuvenation in as few as 1 or 2 sessions. Some of the conditions that can be treated with Lumecca IPL include:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Broken blood vessels
- Enlarged pores
Not only does IPL reduce the visibility of these blemishes, but it actively promotes collagen production, resulting in firmer and healthier skin overall.
Before treatment, we recommend having a brief consultation with Dr. Bennett, who will assess the condition of the patient’s skin and confirm that they are a good candidate for light therapy.
Unlike other IPL treatments, Lumecca is painless, and no anesthesia is required, thanks to the patented cooling sapphire tip.
A single treatment usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes. Depending on the nature of the patient’s concerns, multiple treatments may or may not be required. For patients who do need multiple IPL treatments, we recommend waiting about six weeks between treatments.
