What is IPL?
The Lumenis® Optima™ IPL Photorejuvenation treatment enables your us to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin concerns such as age and sun spots, freckles, birthmarks, rosacea and broken capillaries. The unique Lumenis® IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology gently and effectively eliminates spots, discolorations, and unwanted blood vessels.
Is it right for me?
Lumenis® energy-based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. Optima™ IPL is not suitable when you have active infections, viral, fungal or bacterial diseases, inflammatory skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include: redness, swelling and change of pigmentation.
We offer free consultations before choosing this treatment.
How does it work?
The IPL technology allows treatment of pigmentation and vascular imperfections, while improving overall skin appearance. Lumenis® IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) enables your clinician to customize the treatment according to your skin type and desired results. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner. The body’s natural process then removes the treated tissue, while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.
Does it hurt?
To ensure utmost comfort, we apply cold coupling gel on the treatment area. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
When will I see results?
The Lumenis® Optima™ IPL Photorejuvenation treatment works with your skin to remove your imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fiber production over a sequence of treatments. Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots may be cleared with as few as 1-2 treatments.
Typically 2-6 sessions with 2-4 weeks in between are needed to achieve optimal results for most skin concerns.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment settings. The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. In most cases, makeup may be immediately applied, and daily activities can be resumed the very same day. You will need to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.
