About the Technology

With the Lumenis IPL technology, Dr. Nguyen can create a customized treatment plan just for your skin needs. Your personalized treatment with the optimal pulse technology can treat visible signs of aging, pigmentation issues, and vascular imperfections by pulsating light through the skin and creating heat. The controlled heat will help eliminate spots and fine lines while jump starting collagen production to improve the tone and texture of your healing skin during the process of exfoliation.

During treatments

In less than 45 minutes, our in-office Lumenis treatment will be quick and effective.  To minimize discomfort, our Aesthetic Clinician will apply a topical numbing cream to your face. We will ask that you wait for 20 – 30 minutes for the cream be absorbed into the skin. Then, we will apply the light to your treatment area, where you may feel a slight warming sensation. The rest of your Lumenis session will involve the light gently passing over your face.

what to expect

If you have sensitive skin, you may experience some mild swelling and/or flushing of your skin for 2 – 24 hours after the treatment. Patients with freckles or lesions on their skin will notice that they will turn darker, look extremely dry for 4 – 7 days, and then gradually flake off. If you are a patient using the Lumenis treatments for vascular lesions, you may also see some bruising.

Lumenis FAQs

When will I see results?

Results are not immediate with this treatment, and your skin will need to heal before true results are visible. Your recovery period can last from 2 – 5 days. You will be able to see a difference in dark lesions, sunspots, and your skin's overall texture within a week.

We may recommend several treatment sessions to obtain optimal results, which will depend on the severity of your skin imperfections.

How will I maintain my results

Of course that better you treat your skin (protect it from sun damage, using sunscreen, proper skincare regimen) the longer your results will last. The Lumenis IPL treatments are a prevention tool, and only treat skin problems after they happen.  We do recommend that patients have at least 1 maintenance session per year to supplement results.
