Lumecca Eye Rejuvenation (IPL)
Intense Pulse Light is extremely effective in managing meibomian gland dysfunction, dry eye and ocular forms of rosacea. Many times, a patient can discontinue using their medicational eye drops or artificial tears after a series of Lumecca treatments.
Lumecca works by:
- Decreasing demodex and bacteria around the eyelids.
- Closing off blood vessels that release inflammation
- Inhibits the release of proinflammatory mediators
- Reinvigorates the meibomian glands and normalizes their secretions
- Allowing healthy oil production that protects your tears
Treating your dry eye sometimes turns into treating yourself. IPL helps reverse the signs of aging by stimulating collagen production for younger-looking eyes. It has been used in dermatology for many years for skin rejuvenation. Often referred to as a “photofacial,” the treatment can be used to erase mild sun damage, age-spots, freckles or irregular pigmentation on the eyes, face and neck.
Lumecca is performed in a series of 3-4 treatment sessions and sometimes used in combination with radio frequency as discussed below.
We also use Lumecca IPL to minimize or remove:
- age spots
- dry eyes
- sun damage
- freckles around the eyes
- varicose veins
- broken blood vessels around eyelids
- eye rosacea
Lumecca is the world’s most advanced non-surgical, light-based skin resurfacing system that is optimized to achieve great results in a single session. When compared to traditional IPL systems in clinical trials, Lumecca achieves the fastest clearance of eyelid skin blemishes and surface-level discoloration; brighter skin within 3 sessions versus 5-6 sessions normally required to see real results with other light-based treatments.
Those who choose IPL are consistently stunned by the dramatic anti-aging results they are able to achieve within a short period of time. Patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin.
Lumecca operates using photo-thermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of comfortable light treatment. IPL or Intense Scientific evidence suggests that IPL stimulates fibroblast activity in the skin. These cells produce new collagen which is thought to be responsible for skin tightening and rejuvenation.
