Looking for a way to look younger and more refreshed? Those in Virginia Beach can take advantage of the exciting treatment known as Lumecca IPL. This powerful form of intense pulse laser treatment can help rejuvenate the face in far fewer appointments than other IPL options. Many different skin imperfections can be addressed with the exciting treatment option of IPL in Virginia Beach.
How Does Lumecca IPL Work?
IPL in Virginia Beach works by heating the skin in a gentle and safe manner. Pigment is drawn to the surface of the skin so that it can either flake off or be reabsorbed by the body. This helps to even out your complexion. At the same time, collagen production is stimulated. This effectively “shrinks” pores and helps you look younger.
Lumecca IPL is an effective treatment for the following skin issues:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains)
- Enlarged pores
While this treatment is safe for almost anywhere on the body, it is most often done on areas that are commonly exposed to the sun. This includes the face, neck, hands, arms, and legs.
What to Expect with Lumecca IPL in Virginia Beach
The first thing done is a consultation where a treatment plan can be created. The treatment itself is quick and easy. How many treatments you will need will depend on the size of the area and the extent of the damage. This will all be discussed at your consultation.
One of the things people love most about IPL in Virginia Beach is that it results in no downtime. After your treatment, your face may be warm and a little pink for a day or two. This is a normal part of the process and fades quickly. After this, most people find their skin to look younger and healthier.
For at least six weeks after your appointment, it will be especially important to apply adequate sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure when possible. While the results are long-lasting, exposure to the sun can quickly cause new damage.
