Step into the light!
There are so many options out there for IPL or intense pulsed light, so it can be daunting knowing which one is the best. They all claim to be the best don’t they?! But it is actually true that not all IPL machines are made equally. They have come a long way from the early days and machines are now more powerful and effective.
We stand by the results of our IPL. We use Lumecca™ IPL which is excellent at treating pigmented and vascular lesions. That is red veins, capillaries, freckles and age spots. Traditional IPLs do treat these areas too but they are also challenged by darker skin tones for example. In addition to this they take a lot longer to work and require more sessions. Lumecca™ IPL stands out from the crowd because it has a wider wavelength range (500nm-700nm) making it more effective. This higher light intensity means that Lumecca™ IPL can penetrate deeper into the skin, making it more effective at treating that sun damage and age spots.
It also has a large head and high pulse repetition rate that covers larger areas making treatment faster and more cost effective. On the whole it takes 1-2 treatments compared to 6-8 with other IPL devices. Another bonus with Lumecca™ IPL is that there is much less discomfort than other types of IPL due to the sapphire tip of the device. It creates a strong cooling sensation and gets rid of the need for topical numbing.
I like to do my research when it comes to bringing technologies into the clinic. But I know I made the right decision when I see the results on a patient’s face and join in their excitement at having fresh, clear skin.
