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.
"Kybella - I’ve been wanting Kybella for a little over 2 years and decided to take the plunge and do it on my 29th birthday (January 17, 2020). For reference I’m 109lbs and 5ft. I’ve always had a small double chin but it got worse with each pregnancy (2) and never went away like the rest of my pregnancy weight. During the consultation I was recommended 2 sessions (2nd session scheduled March 6th) 3 vials each time. We did the 1st session immediately after the consultation. The numbing was the most painful part, after that everything was a breeze. I’ll post pics of my journey. Today is day 1 following treatment (not 24hrs post yet) and I have some sensitivity and my “double chin” is jiggly. Some slight bruising but other than that no issues. I was advised to sleep elevated which I did and will continue to do so for the next 2 nights at least. I iced 3-4 times yesterday and so far 1 time today. I’ll post pics today of a couple months before/a couple weeks before/immediately after procedure/today (1 day after). Updated on 19 Jan 2020: 1/19/20 Still swollen, still have some bruising which I expected considering it’s only day 2 post procedure. I purchased some Arnica gel yesterday and applied that 3 times a day. I believe I iced 2-3 times yesterday and only once today so far. From here out I’ll try to post weekly updates! Updated on 25 Jan 2020: So today’s 8 days post procedure. I still have some swelling but not as bad as before. The area is still a little bit sensitive and feels as though it’s still full of liquid like it can jiggle. It tingles every now and then and almost all feeling is back (I forgot to mention before that it was somewhat numb). I do have some bruises still but they're hard to see because they’re now yellow. Sometimes my jaw hurts like I’ve been clenching my teeth and I’m not sure if I have been clenching or if it’s from the Kybella lol. I didn’t ask during my procedure if it was safe to use all my skin care on my chin so I haven’t been using any harsh chemicals in that area only acne face wash, hydrating toner and moisturizer with spf! Updated on 4 Feb 2020: Sorry I’m behind on updating, I’m currently getting over the flu. I still have a little bit of swelling but not much. I can feel everything’s hard under the swelling. I think I’m basically back to where I began. Updated on 17 Feb 2020: Today is 1 month post first procedure. I’m going to post a picture. Please ignore the fact that I’m sitting on my back porch with a face mask on, it’s the only picture I took today. Anyways, I still have some sensitivity and soreness whenever I touch/push on my double chin. I’m not sure if I have any swelling still or not, only time will tell! Updated on 6 Mar 2020: So here’s a little update. 48 days post first procedure and 1 day before second procedure! Im still a little sensitive in some areas so I’m afraid the second procedure will hurt a little worse. I will update after!"- E. / RealSelf / Oct 02, 2020
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.
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.
