If you spend too much time worrying about covering up dark spots and other skin imperfections, you are not alone. Rather than wasting your money and time on make-up and ineffective home products, consider Lumecca for dark spot correction. It utilizes intense pulse light therapy in order to give you clear, glowing skin.
What Is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a technical term for dark spots or uneven skin tone. It can be caused by many things. Common ones include sun damage, skin injuries, and inflammation. Other types of hyperpigmentation are caused by the body producing excess melanin. It almost always affects either the face or the hands.
What Is Lumecca?
Intense pulse light therapy works for dark spot correction by pulling imperfections, such as excess pigment, to the surface of your skin. Once this happens, the spots get darker for a time. From here, they can either be reabsorbed by the body or flake off. Either way, your skin looks more even. As a bonus, collagen production is stimulated. This helps reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. Lumecca penetrates deeper into the skin than standard intense pulse light.
There are a few things that can be treated with Lumecca, including:
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
- Broken capillaries
- Dull skin tone
- Active acne
- Age spots
What to Expect with Dark Spot Correction
The first step is to come in for a consultation where we can create a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs. The treatment itself is overall comfortable. We will do our best to ensure your comfort before starting the dark spot correction. How many sessions you will need will depend on the amount of damage as well as your skin tone. Typically speaking, 1-3 treatments will be enough.
You will not notice results immediately after treatment. In the following days, the dark spots will either be reabsorbed or flake off, leaving your skin nice and even. The results can be long-lasting. Uneven pigmentation is ultimately caused by sun exposure, so taking precautions can make your improvements last longer.
Speaking of sun exposure, it will be extra important to wear ample sunscreen for six weeks after treatment. Avoiding direct sunlight for as long as possible is also recommended.
