Lumecca IPL

IPL targets years of sunlight exposure banishing brown pigment spots, redness and broken capillaries.

What is IPL?

Patients of drs skincare in Hamilton can enjoy quality results to brighten skin discolorations with IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments. Some know this procedure by an alternate term, “photofacial”. At drs skincare, we specifically utilize Lumecca by InMode because it provides effective results with fewer treatments.

What does IPL do?

This highly-advanced IPL is effective to correct dark and red spots and to even out nearly any skin tone by making simple adjustments to the treatment device. Lumecca works by improving specific skin conditions through a process called “photothermolysis.” Undesirable pigmentation such as brown spots, surface appearance of small blood vessels, uneven skin texture, and visible sun damage may be effectively treated with this system.

What to expect

This means that the four to six treatments that might be required to obtain satisfactory improvements with a standard IPL device may be completed in as few as two to four sessions with Lumecca. Patients benefit with fewer visits, less time to achieve a more youthful image, and cost-savings from the reduced number of appointments.

To find out how IPL can work for you, call us to schedule a consultation. Together, Dr. Shukla and our aesthetician will evaluate your skin’s condition and present you with a plan for the most effective treatment plan. Selecting a knowledgeable provider is vital to achieve the best results. Comfortable procedures will be administered by our experienced staff aesthetician for service you can trust.
