IPL Q&A


What is intense pulsed light (IPL)?

IPL, or photo rejuvenation, is a non-invasive aesthetic treatment that improves facial discoloration and evens skin tone. Evolve Healthcare utilizes the InMode Lumecca® IPL to treat pigmented and vascular lesions, such as:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage 
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles 
  • Birthmarks
  • Chronic redness
  • Spider veins on the face

The Lumecca IPL offers the most concentrated and effective photo rejuvenation products on the market. The highly trained team at Evolve Healthcare uses this revolutionary product to help you achieve your skin goals and give you a boost of confidence. 


How does IPL therapy work?

IPL uses focused light-generated heat to destroy and breakdown the pigment cells that cause discolorations on your skin. After being destroyed, the cells are absorbed and eliminated from the body as part of the natural immune response. The process also stimulates collagen production in the superficial layers of the skin, firming and refreshing your skin.

IPL treatments improve your skin by: 

  • Diminishing the appearance of age spots 
  • Repairing sun damage
  • Reducing redness
  • Minimizing dilated blood vessels 
  • Shrinking enlarged pores
  • Improving skin texture and tone
  • Reducing unwanted facial hair

Lumecca IPL causes little to no discomfort during or after treatment and requires no downtime. This non-invasive approach to improving your skin's health and appearance is easy, safe, and effective. 


What happens during IPL therapy?

During an initial consultation with the team at Evolve Healthcare, you discuss your skin rejuvenation goals and ask any questions. They create a personalized plan of care that best treats your blemishes. 

When you arrive for your session, your IPL technician provides protective eyewear for both you and them and then applies a cooling gel to your treatment area. The Lumecca IPL has a specially designed head to maximize the treatment area and shorten your time in the chair. 

Your session may last from 10-40 minutes, depending on your goals and treatment plan. For best results, most people need 3-6 sessions, though you may notice your skin looks brighter and fresher even after the first treatment. Typically, it would be best if you waited 4-6 weeks between treatments, which gives your skin time to replenish and process the destroyed pigment cells.
