PHOTOREJUVENATION ( LUMINIS 1) LME/ELLIPSE

THE LUMINIS 1 IS THE LATEST DEVELOPMENT IN LIGHT-BASED TECHNOLOGY, (LUMINIS 1 THERAPY IS A USA FDA-CLEARED THERAPY). IT IS ONE OF THE MOST HIGHLY EFFECTIVE SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS AVAILABLE TODAY. 

LUMINIS 1 REJUVENATE YOUR SKIN, LEAVING IT LOOKING IMMEDIATELY MORE HEALTHY AND YOUTHFUL.

THIS IS AN IDEAL TREATMENT FOR ALL SKIN TYPES AND IS A POPULAR TREATMENT FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN AND FOR YOUNG AND OLDER SKINS.

IN ADDITION TO REJUVENATING YOUR SKIN, LEAVING A HEALTHY AND YOUTHFUL LOOKING APPEARANCE, LUMINIS 1  TREATMENTS ARE ALSO EFFECTIVE IN TREATING A RANGE OF CONDITIONS INCLUDING:

-HAIR REMOVAL

-BLOTCHY AND UNEVEN SKIN PIGMENTATION

-ACTIVE ACNE

-REDNESS OF THE SKIN

-ACNE ROSACEA

-BROWN SPOTS

-FRECKLES

-SUN DAMAGED SKIN

-FACIAL THREAD VEINS

-SKIN REJUVENATION 


HOW IS THE PHOTOREJUVENATION PROCEDURE PERFORMED?

AN ANESTHETIC CREAM IS USUALLY USED PRIOR TO THE PROCEDURE. A COLD GEL IS USUALLY APPLIED TO THE TREATMENT AREA. THE SMOOTH GLASS SURFACE OF THE LME HAND PIECE IS GENTLY APPLIED. YOU MAY FEEL A SLIGHT STING, LIKE THE SNAPPING OF A SMALL RUBBER BAND. TREATMENT IS GENERALLY ADMINISTERED IN A SERIES OF PROCEDURE THAT PROVIDE LONG-TERM RESULTS. EACH TREATMENT TAKES ABOUT 10 TO 15 MINUTES.


WHY ARE MULTIPLE TREATMENTS NECESSARY?

DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER OF CONDITIONS YOU ARE TREATING, AND THE SEVERITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL PROBLEM, A SERIES OF FIVE TO EIGHT TREATMENT SESSIONS MAY BE RECOMMENDED. YOU CAN RETURN TO WORK THE SAME DAY AND RESUME YOUR REGULAR    ACTIVITIES. BY DIVIDING THE FULL PROGRAM INTO SEVERAL TREATMENTS, THE PROCEDURE PROVIDES GRADUAL IMPROVEMENT WITH            LOW RISK - AND, IT PRESERVES THE "NO DOWNTIME" FEATURE THAT PATIENTS APPRECIATE.

LME TECHNOLOGY IMPROVES BOTH THE SUPERFICIAL AND DEEPER SKIN LAYERS AND REJUVENATES THE SKIN WHILE AT THE SAME TIME DELIVERING THERMAL ENERGY TO DEEP TISSUE. AFTER A SERIOUS OF TREATMENTS, YOU CAN SEE A REDUCTION OF UNWANTED   PIGMENTATION AND THE APPEARANCE OF SMOOTHER, REVITALIZED SKIN. THE SAME TREATMENT CAN BE USED EFFECTIVELY ON THE     NECK, THE CHEST, AND THE HANDS.


LME FOR PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION

LUMINIS 1 (IPL) TREATMENT CAN REDUCE UNWANTED HAIR. THE AREAS MOST COMMONLY TREATED ARE FACE, BACK, LEGS, FINGERS, FEET AND TOES.  IPL WORKS BEST ON DARK HAIR.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

THE PROCEDURE INVOLVES PULSED LIGHT ENERGY THAT GOES THROUGH THE HAIR SHAFT DOWN TO THE FOLLICLE, THEREFORE DESTROYING THE HAIR'S ROOT.


A.HOW DOES IT WORK?

THE HIGHLY INTENSE PULSES OF LIGHT WITH THE HELP OF A COMPUTER. THESE PULSES OF LIGHT HAVE A SPECIFIC RANGE OF WAVELENGTHS, WHICH HEAT UP THE TARGET (THE PROBLEM SPOTS). THE DEGREE OF HEATING AND DEPTH OF PENETRATION OF THE LIGHT ARE HIGHLY CONTROLLED SO THAT PROBLEM AREAS OF THE SKIN ARE DESTROYED WITH MINIMAL EFFECT ON THE SURROUNDING NORMAL SKIN. THIS IS WHY INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (LME) THERAPY SELDOM PRODUCES BAD SIDE EFFECTS WHEN PROPERLY ADMINISTERED BY A SKILLED DOCTOR.

 

WHAT ARE THE SKIN PROBLEMS THAT CAN BE IMPROVED WITH THE INTENSE PULSED LIGHT 

-FRECKLES, SUN SPOTS, DULL SKIN APPEARANCE DUE TO EXCESSIVE SUN EXPOSURE AND SOME OTHER PIGMENTARY COMPLAINTS;

-REDNESS OF THE SKIN DUE TO ROSACEA, ACNE SCARS AND SELECTED DIAGNOSES AND FINE BROKEN VEINS IN THE SKIN;

-REDUCTION OF UNWANTED HAIR AND

-FINE WRINKLES AND PROMINENT FACIAL PORES


WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

THERE IS MINIMAL 'DOWNTIME', IF ANY AT ALL, AFTER THE PROCEDURE. THE TREATED AREA MAY BE SLIGHTLY RED IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TREATMENT. THIS USUALLY FADES AFTER SEVERAL HOURS. YOU MAY WEAR YOUR USUAL COSMETICS AND RESUME YOUR NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL) TREATMENT. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE TREATMENT AREA IS PROTECTED FROM SUNLIGHT. THEREFORE, IT IS ADVISABLE TO APPLY A SUNBLOCK ON THE TREATED AREA BEFORE LEAVING THE CLINIC.

 

HOW MANY SESSIONS OF TREATMENT WITH INTENSE PULSE LIGHT DO I NEED?

SOME PEOPLE MAY SEE RESULTS AFTER ONE OR TWO TREATMENTS DEPENDING ON THE PROBLEM. SOME PROBLEMS MAY REQUIRE MORE SESSIONS OF TREATMENT BEFORE IMPROVEMENT IS NOTICEABLE. SUBSEQUENT MONTHLY TREATMENTS WILL BE NEEDED TO OPTIMIZE THE RESULTS. CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR TO OBTAIN A CLEARER PICTURE OF THE NUMBER OF SESSIONS NEEDED FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS.

POST-TREATMENT ADVICE MAY INCLUDE:

-MOISTURISING THE AREA TREATED REGULARLY;

-NOT EXPOSING THE AREA TREATED TO THE SUN WITHOUT A SUNSCREEN FOR AT LEAST 2 WEEKS TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PIGMENTATION OR CHANGE IN SKIN COLOUR. A HIGH FACTOR SUN BLOCK SHOULD BE USED DAILY TO PROTECT THE SKIN;
