IPL Q & A

What can IPL treat?

Lumecca intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments can restore your more youthful skin and resolve all those dark pigmentation issues you may have. IPL treatments can treat:


  • Freckles
  • Rosacea
  • Spider veins
  • Brown or red spots
  • Sun damage or age spots


Although IPL treatments are commonly requested for treating facial imperfections, you can also get IPL on your neck, chest, shoulders, hands, or another area why you have dark spots.

How does IPL work?

Lumecca IPL treatments send rapid bursts of high-intensity light into your skin. As melanin, pigments in your skin, absorb the light, the energy is converted into heat. This effect destroys melanin-producing cells, forcing them to break apart.


Over time, broken-down pigmented lesions get pushed to the surface of your skin and flake away. What’s left behind is a fresh, new, healthier layer of skin that’s lighter and brighter than before.

Does IPL cause pain?

Some skin revitalization treatments can be quite uncomfortable. Because of the groundbreaking technology behind Lumecca IPL, your photofacial treatment causes little to no discomfort.


Lumecca has a specially designed cooling tip that soothes your skin with each burst of light, which makes your entire session virtually painless. Plus, Lumecca covers large areas with fast repetition of light bursts, which reduces your overall treatment time, so you won’t have to worry about a long, painful procedure.

Is there any downtime after IPL?

You’re probably going to have some redness or puffiness after your Lumecca IPL session at Cedar Park Aesthetics, although you won’t have any significant downtime. These minimal side effects tend to fade within a few hours. It’s perfectly safe to re-apply makeup, moisturizers, or other daily skin care product right after your treatment.


Since your skin is going to be a little more sensitive to the sun after IPL, the team at Cedar Park Aesthetics encourage you to wear sunscreen daily and stay out of the sun as much as possible for at least a week. Otherwise, you risk burning your skin.
