When will I see results?
The Lumenis® Optima™ IPL Photorejuvenation treatment works with your skin to remove your imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fiber production over a sequence of treatments. Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots may be cleared with as few as 1-2 treatments. Typically 2-6 sessions with 2-4 weeks in between are needed to achieve optimal results for most skin concerns.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment settings. The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. In most cases, makeup may be immediately applied, and daily activities can be resumed the very same day. Typically your physician should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.
The Lumenis® Optima™ IPL Photorejuvenation treatment
enables your physician to offer you remarkable results on a
range of skin concerns such as age and sun spots, freckles,
birthmarks, rosacea and broken capillaries.
Our unique IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology gently
and effectively eliminates spots, discolorations, and
unwanted blood vessels.
Is it right for me?
Lumenis® energy-based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. Optima™ IPL is not suitable when you have active infections, viral, fungal or bacterial diseases, inflammatory skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include: redness, swelling, change of pigmentation or scarring. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.
IPL Photorejuvenation technology
The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology allows treatment of pigmentation and vascular imperfections, while improving overall skin appearance. Lumenis® IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) enables your clinician to safely customize the treatment according to your skin type and desired results. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner. The body’s natural process then removes the treated tissue, while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.
To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should apply cold coupling gel on the treatment area. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
