Aging is a wonderful gift, but it is admittedly discouraging when you see age spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles on your face. However, there is no need to fret too much because numerous remedies and procedures can improve your skin’s appearance. One of which is Lumecca®️, a skin-rejuvenation device that uses IPL.
What Is Lumecca?
Lumecca is a non-invasive beauty treatment that uses a device that emits IPL or intense pulsed light to enhance the skin’s appearance. It can target and treat various skin conditions selectively through photothermolysis. Lumecca is an FDA-approved IPL treatment that can be used for both light and dark skin.
Benefits of Lumecca IPL
The way that Lumecca works – it utilizes the powers of heat and light to destroy unwanted skin cells, resulting in younger-looking, perfectly rejuvenated skin. It has numerous benefits, but below are five important ways it makes your skin look better:
1. Smoothens Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Prolonged exposure to the sun changes the skin, causing deep wrinkles, fine lines, melasma, and roughness to appear. Lumecca can smooth these signs of aging by encouraging natural collagen production. Collagen is a natural protein that reverses the appearance of aging when it fills fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Minimizes Hyperpigmentation
In the same way that Lumecca smoothens wrinkles and fine lines, it minimizes hyperpigmentation by encouraging collagen production. Hyperpigmentation is another consequence of too much exposure to the sun. Lumecca also effectively lightens dark spots on your skin by destroying the brown and red pigments in the skin.
3. Eliminates Redness Due to Rosacea and Acne Marks
Rosacea is a skin condition known for the redness and blood vessels that appear visibly on the face of those affected. You can develop this condition during middle age, usually caused by exposure to the sun and wind all the time. Lumecca can also reduce the redness that comes with Rosacea and acne marks by exposing it to the light emitted by the device.
4. Eradicates Unwanted Freckles and Age Spots
The parts of the face that are often exposed to the sun are where you will usually find freckles and sun spots. Sun spots and freckles sometimes overlap, making certain skin parts look much darker. Some people don’t like how they look, which can be corrected by Lumecca by breaking down the brown pigments, aka melasma. As a result, the skin tone evens out, and you have much clearer skin than before.
5. Restores the Smoothness of the Skin
As you know by now, Lumecca encourages the body’s increased collagen production. If you don’t know, collagen is a natural protein that greatly helps reverse the signs of aging. By increasing its production, Lumecca can make your skin look smooth and supple, giving you a dreamy, youthful-looking appearance.
This procedure doesn’t hurt, but you may feel some discomfort. Nevertheless, Lumecca is one of today’s beauty procedures that are easy to endure. Besides, it can even be more comfortable using cooling gels and numbing creams.
