How does Luvo Darwin IPL work
Luvo Darwin IPL releases a low energy light pulse to your skin releasing heat, the hemoglobin in your blood vessels absorbs the light causing them to weaken and die then the vessels get re-absorbed by the body which causes the redness to fade.
What to expect
Before treatment our technician will place light protection goggles over your eyes to protect them from the laser light. Cooling gel will be placed on the area(s) of treatment to glide the hand piece and provide comfort.
During treatment you may feel a heating and zapping sensation.
After treatment your face will be red and swelling may occur.
You can wear makeup after the heat leaves your skin, brown spots will darken for 7-10 days and red spots will fade over the next 1-2 week(s)
Our practitioner will equip you with a pair of laser protective eyewear to bebe placed on your eyes to protect you from the beam of light. The device is proceeded to gently pressed on the skin and emits intense pulsed light. This light will penetrates the skin epidermis and into the dermis, where the pulsed light energy heats and stimulates the cells to promote collagen production and reduce the redness, pigmentation, as well as any discolouration of the skin. You may experience a warm sensation as the pulsed energy come into contact with your skin.
We recommend 3-6 sessions to get best results.
After Luvo Darwin IPL treatment you may experience the following:
Avoid excessive sun exposure and wear protective sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher and protective clothing. We also recommend avoiding hot water, use gentle cleanser and keep skin moisturized, hydrated at all time.
IPL is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses intense pulsed light to improve the appearance of skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and broken capillaries.
IPL can be uncomfortable, but most patients tolerate the treatment well. The sensation has been described as similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin.
The number of treatments required depends on the individual’s skin type and the severity of the condition being treated. Typically, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart is recommended.
Results can be seen within a few days to weeks after treatment, and the skin will continue to improve over time.
Side effects can include redness, swelling, and mild discomfort. Rarely, more serious side effects such as scarring or skin discoloration can occur. It is important to consult with a qualified practitioner to discuss any potential risks or side effects associated with IPL.
