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

Prior to treatment, our technician will gently position protective goggles over your eyes to shield them from the laser light. Cooling gel will then be applied to the treatment area(s) to facilitate the smooth gliding of the handpiece and enhance comfort.

During the treatment, you may experience a mild heating sensation accompanied by a slight zapping feeling.

Following the treatment, you may notice redness and swelling on your face, which is a common reaction.

You can resume wearing makeup once the heat dissipates from your skin. Brown spots may darken over the next 7–10 days, while red spots typically fade within 1–2 weeks.

Procedure

Our practitioner will provide you with laser protective eyewear to safeguard your eyes from the light beam. The device will then be gently pressed onto your skin, emitting intense pulsed light. This light penetrates the skin’s epidermis and reaches the dermis, where it heats and stimulates cells to enhance collagen production and diminish redness, pigmentation, and skin discoloration. You may feel a warm sensation as the pulsed energy interacts with your skin.

For optimal results, we suggest undergoing 3–6 sessions
