Age-defying treatment to rejuvenate your appearance.

What is IPL Lumecca?

IPL Lumecca treatment, also known as Intense Pulsed Light therapy, uses gentle pulses of high-intensity and broad-spectrum light to treat various skin concerns. It’s a non-invasive solution for smooth, radiant skin. Whether you have sun spots or blemishes on your skin, unwanted lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and more, IPL is an effective, quick treatment for rejuvenating your skin.


Concerns Addressed

IPL treatment can address the following cosmetic concerns:

  • Sun spots
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Uneven skin tones
  • Spider veins and redness due to broken capillaries
  • Vascular lesions
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun damage

  • Hair removal


IPL treatment is an effective treatment for a variety of skin concerns. It can provide numerous benefits, including:

  • Overall improved skin apperance
  • Diminished appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles
  • Can be effective for laser hair removal
  • Non-invasive and minimal downtime
Treatment sessions are often less than 30 minutes and can be applied to many parts of the body.

What To Expect During

During your consultation, your Parfarie IPL practitioner will evaluate your skin and listen to your specific needs. If you are found to be a candidate for treatment, they will create a treatment plan that is unique to you and identify the target areas where IPL can be applied.

Before treatment, you should avoid any activities that involve direct sunlight, chemical peels, ibuprofen, and tanning beds. Your Parfaire practitioner will review this list with you. 

During treatment, your skin will be cleaned and gel will be applied to numb the area where the light energy will be administered. A specialized IPL tool is used that sends pulses of light into your skin. Most patients report there is no discomfort during the process. 

Treatment typically takes up to 30 minutes. Many patients receive anywhere from 3 to 6 sessions of laser treatments over the course of 3 to 6 months, depending on their needs. 

You should begin to notice the benefits of treatment a few days after your first session.

What are the Side Effects?

A common side effect includes a slight tingling sensation in the areas that were treated – this is temporary and resolves within a few days. Additional temporary side effects can include redness, swelling, bruising, discomfort, peeling, and in very rare cases, scarring.

Are You a Candidate For

You might be a candidate for treatment if you are in generally good health and have skin concerns that could benefit from treatment. This could include anything from unwanted wrinkles to vascular and pigmented lesions, sun spots from excessive sun exposure, sagging skin, unwanted freckles, unwanted hair, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the downtime after IPL treatment?
There is generally minimal downtime and most people can resume their normal activities within a day or two after receiving treatment.
How long do the results last?
Results can last for several months or up to a year, depending on how many treatment sessions take place. Many patients choose to have perioidic touch-ups every several months.
Can I combine IPL with other cosmetic procedures?
Yes, IPL can be combined with other cosmetic procedures if needed. Your Parfaire practitioner can provide you with additional information during your consultation.
How do IPL devices and Intense Pulsed Light technology work in treating various skin concerns?
IPL devices emit a broad spectrum of controlled pulses of light energy that target specific areas of the skin. For example, in the case of treating vascular lesions, spider veins, or rosacea, the light can destroy any problematic blood vessels associated with them and therefore diminish their appearance. For removing unwanted wrinkles and creases, the light is able to reach deep layers of the skin that encourages collagen production and increases skin elasticity.
What is the cost of treatment?
The exact cost will depend on the specific areas treated and the number of sessions needed. Please contact us for an estimate.
