How Lumenis IPL works
Each light pulse penetrates tissue and creates a controlled injury to the targeted area (unwanted veins, hair follicles, or melanin spots). Surrounding healthy skin and vessels are not affected. The body’s natural processe then removes the treated tissue. Collagen stimulation occurs, and new cell growth in the deep, dermal layers results in a visible improvement of tone, texture and appearance.
Red blemishes from broken blood vessels and pigmented spots from sun damage respond to Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). The light is changed to heat energy as it reaches the level of the collagen beneath the skin’s surface.
Ultimate freedom from age spots,sun spots and freckles… Whether from time, genetics, or environment, IPL uses selectively directed light energy to reverse skin damage that appears as brown age spots or sun spots.
IPL addresses both problems, eliminating broken capillaries and inflammation without disturbing healthy tissue or surrounding normal blood vessels, leaving clear, even-toned skin. A better vein removal option… Lumenis IPL is successful in the removal of spider-like veins; networks of blue or red blood vessels. IPL uses precisely targeted pulses of light energy to destroy the abnormal dilated blood vessels, causing the unwanted veins to be reabsorbed by the body.
Hair removal that is completely customized
Unwanted hair on the face, back, legs, bikini line, or any other body area has a simple and long-lasting solution. Lumenis IPL uses specific energy settings matched to your skin, hair type, and location to ensure treatments are uniquely tailored and extremely effective. Highly controlled light flashes are absorbed by hair follicles, damaging or destroying their regrowth potential, without affecting surrounding skin.
Rejuvenation (photofacial) that renews skin both above and below the surface… Lumenis IPL produces younger-looking skin by using light energy to repair damaged tissue in a process called photofacial. Imperfections created by sun exposure, such as pigmented spots and broken blood vessels, are noticeably improved after only a few treatments.
In addition, IPL stimulates collagen growth in the deep dermal layers, helping to restore volume and elasticity to the skin’s support system. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished, pore size is reduced, and the dull skin that can come with age gains a brighter, more youthful appearance.
A better answer to melasma
Triggered by sun exposure, genetics, and hormone changes, melasma is a condition that causes brown discoloration of the face. By delivering broadband light in highly focused pulses, Lumenis IPL specifically targets the darker-pigmented patches of skin, causing the discolored areas to fade without any damage to surrounding skin. IPL tends to work best in conjunction with your practitioner’s recommendations for prescribed topical skin brightening.

Common Questions About Lumenis IPL
What is IPL treatment like?
Clients are given protective eyewear, and a cold gel is applied to the treatment area. The IPL handpiece delivers precise pulses of light that penetrate and correct skin imperfections. Most clients only experience slight discomfort.
Treatment time varies from 10-30 minutes, and a complete treatment program includes 2-6 sessions spaced over 3- to 4-week intervals.
What preparations are required?
No changes to your normal routine are necessary, except to limit sun exposure both before and after treatment.
What should I expect immediately after treatment?
There may be a slight redness or blotchiness to the skin. This usually disappears after one hour. In most cases, makeup may be immediately reapplied if desired.
Who is an IPL candidate?
Most people can be treated with IPL. Your IPL Specialist will determine if IPL treatment is appropriate for you.
Where on the body can IPL be used?
IPL can be used to treat any area of the body. The most common areas are the face, neck, chest, hands, and legs. Depending on your treatment plan, multiple areas can be treated in the same office visit.
Why do I need multiple treatments?
Maximum benefit with minimal trauma is the goal of IPL. Multiple treatments ensure a successful outcome, along with gradual, natural-looking improvement. Depending on the treatment, results can last 6 to 12 months or more.
