Scar Revision Lumecca IPL BRISBANE

Have you recently undergone surgery or experienced an injury that has left you with a pink or brown scar? Lumecca IPL targets the papillary and pigment activity within scars, helping to improve their appearance.

What Is Lumecca IPL Scar Revision?

Lumecca IPL is a popular scar revision treatment offered here at Inigo Cosmetic in Brisbane. Lumecca utilises Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to target the melanin and hemoglobin within scars. During the treatment process, the device emits high-intensity light pulses that penetrate the skin, specifically targeting the pigmented and vascular areas of the scar.

For pigmented scars, such as those that appear pink or brown, the light energy is absorbed by the melanin, leading to the breakdown of pigment and its natural elimination by the body. This process effectively lightens the color of the scar and reduces its visibility.

For vascular scars, the light energy targets the hemoglobin in the blood vessels within the scar tissue, causing coagulation and subsequent closure of the blood vessels. This action reduces redness and inflammation in the scar, resulting in an overall improvement in its appearance.

LUMECCA IPL INFORMATION

Lumecca IPL therapy uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to specifically target the melanin (brown pigment) and hemoglobin (red pigment) within a scar. Lumecca IPL emits intense pulses of light, effectively penetrating the skin to focus on the pigmented and vascular regions of the scar.

When dealing with pigmented scars, particularly those exhibiting pink or brown tones, the light energy is absorbed by the melanin. This absorption triggers the breakdown of pigment, which is then naturally eliminated by the body. Consequently, the scar’s coloration is lightened, leading to reduced visibility. In the case of vascular scars, the light energy is directed towards the hemoglobin found in the scar’s blood vessels. This process induces coagulation, subsequently resulting in the closure of the blood vessels. As a result, redness and inflammation within the scar are reduce, contributing to an overall improvement in appearance.

Lumecca IPL therapy all stimulates collagen production in the skin. This stimulation can aid in smoothing out the scar’s texture and promotes the regeneration of skin cells, further reducing the appearance of scars following surgery or an injury.
