Lumecca (Intense pulse light) - utilizes a broad spectrum light source, with a general spectral range of 500 to 1200 nm. Various cutoff filters are commonly used to filter out lower frequencies and narrow this spectrum to target specific structures and chromophores (reds - Rosacea). Because of the broad spectrum of the IPL light source they are unique, as opposed to lasers, in their ability to filter the light spectrum to target various chromophores in the skin. Intense pulsed light technologies have evolved significantly since their introduction to the medical community 20 years ago. This evolution has significantly improved their efficacy and safety. Read more
