For patients looking to address facial pigmentation, superficial reddened vessels, skin and/or photodamage and/or rosacea, Lumecca IPL is the optimal solution. Whether you call it a Photofacial, Light Therapy, Energy Therapy or sometimes referred to as a IPL Laser, Lumecca is the choice for your pigment needs!
IPL treatments improve the skin complexion, reduces skin irregularities and aids patients to look years younger. IPL “photofacial” helps address age spots (red/brown pigmentation, dyschromia, hyperpigmentation), sun damage, vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasias, angiomas), rosacea and freckles.
Why Lumecca vs Other IPL?
Lumecca is the strongest and safest IPL on the market. It is a breakthrough intense pulsed light (IPL) that delivers up to 3x more energy in the 500-600nm range to improve efficacy for vascular and pigmented lesions. It is optimized for clinicians to treat a variety of lesions with fewer sessions. It was created by the original inventor of IPL – Dr. Michael Kriendel holds more patents in this space than any other inventor. Dr. Kriendel is the CTO and lead scientist now for InMode and creator of both Lumecca and Morpheus8. Its High Efficiency allows complete photo rejuvenation in 1 or 2 treatments for most patients versus 4-6 treatments with standard IPL’s.
In addition, with its sapphire cooling tip, it allows for more treatment comfort for clients.
IPL vs BBL?
If you speak to anyone at InMode or at The Injectory® – they will tell you Lumecca is BETTER!
But BBL and IPL are not quite the same – IPL is intense pulsed light and BBL is Broad band light.
Is IPL the same as Laser?
In the world of beauty, Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and Laser-based procedures often lead to confusion. As they are both light-based, it is easy to see why people may think that they are the same treatment or have the same effects on the body.
IPL has risen in popularity in recent years as one of the most popular light-based treatments due to its easy and quick nature. Essentially, the procedure works by directing a broad spectrum of light at the skin. Your skin will receive this light in the form of heat, which should help to kill off problematic skin cells while also stimulating newer and healthier cells underneath. IPL is highly recommended for the treatment of issues such as age spots, rosacea, sunburns, spider veins, stretch marks, etc.
While there are a large variety of laser-based procedures depending on the specific treatment that you want to be carried out, they mostly work in the same manner. Generally, laser treatments involve emitting controlled pulses of light that can be used to penetrate small problem areas, such as hair follicles. As the light is highly concentrated and monochromatic, you should expect little chance of skin damage or discoloration. Laser is often considered for reducing wrinkles and blemishes. At The Injectory® we offer Morpheus8 for these concerns with far better overall outcomes and an all-in-one skin treatment. Contact us to learn more or visit our page on Morpheus8.
