Intense pulsed light (IPL)

WHAT IS IPL?

An Intense-Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment is a powerful and effective treatment that uses the power of broadband light to minimize the appearance of age spots, sun spots, acne scars, redness, and more. 

Here at Enriched Med Spa, we choose to use the powerful technology of the Lumecca by InMode Technologies.

WHAT IS THE LUMECCA BY INMODE TECHNOLOGIES?

The Lumecca is one of the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) technologies that effectively treats pigmented and vascular lesions. It operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.

In just 1-3 sessions, the Lumecca improves the appearance of sun spots, freckles, other hyperpigmentation, and an overall uneven skin tone, as well as vascular lesions, such as broken capillaries, and mild redness in the skin. 

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?

The Lumecca by InMode Technologies can be used on all areas of the body! The most common areas of treatment are zones regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, decolletage, legs, hands and arms.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?

There are many factors that will cause the recommended number of treatments to vary. These include the client’s unique concerns, goals, and current skincare routine. We typically recommend that clients start with a package of 3, followed by regular maintenance treatments since the common concerns that IPL treats (hyperpigmentation, broken capillaries, and redness), are prone to returning.
