Lumecca uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to selectively target and treat skin conditions through selective photothermolysis. Optimized for light and dark skin, Lumecca increases the potential for clinicians to treat a variety of skin types and conditions that can include facial pigmentation, superficial vessels, skin texture and/or photo-damage.
Features & Benefits of using Lumecca Skin Rejuvenation:
Lumecca improves the appearance of the skin including:
- Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
- Sun Damage
- Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangliectasias)
- Rosacea (redness)
- Freckles and other pigmentations
What To Expect During Your Procedure
Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are areas that are regularly exposed to the sun. Often, these areas include the face, neck, decolletage, legs, hands, and arms.
During treatment, there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation (like a rubber band snap). Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours, you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards, the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to a clarification of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions, you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
What steps must be taken before the procedure?
You must avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment. We suggest that you stop all tanning in the future as tanning is the reason why you are seeing these spots in the first place!
How many sessions are required?
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session, and multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment plans depend on the severity of skin damage, type of treatment (vascular vs. sun damage), and energy settings. We sell Lumecca in a package of 3 sessions.
How quickly will I see results?
Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger, brilliant, and clarified over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple Lumecca sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as spider or leg veins, results can be seen immediately in up to 2 weeks.
Are there any side effects?
Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight.
