Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology aimed at treating pigmentation discrepancies in the skin. Brown spots, vascular lesions, freckles, and even Rosacea can be treated effectively with the technology, all without surgery. Dr. Whitfield is proud to offer Lumecca, an IPL laser to help his patients even skin tone, whether it’s the face or elsewhere on the body.
Lumecca is an IPL treatment performed without surgery in an office setting. The procedure itself is not painful, leaving patients with some redness following treatment. Depending on the severity of the issues being addressed, patients will require 1-3 treatments. If issues are minor, even just one treatment will produce a marked improvement in skin tone.
The recovery is straightforward. Patients will notice redness and warmth to the skin immediately following treatment, conditions that will dissipate within 24-48 hours. Some lesions may appear darker but will flake off in the week afterward as the new skin grows underneath. Results from the first treatment will begin to resolve a few days after treatment.
The treatments cost $250 per session. Results may vary. During your consultation, Dr. Whitfield and his staff will be able to give you an accurate estimate of the number of necessary treatments.
