Intense Pulses Light - (IPL)
What is Lumecca?
Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.
What Are the Benefits?
Lumecca improves the appearance of:
• Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
• Sun damage
• Vascular lesions (spider veins, port-wine stains, leg telangiectasia)
• Rosacea (redness)
What Steps Must Be Taken Before The Procedure?
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.
What Should I Expect During and After Lumecca?
During treatment, there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation. 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 afterward the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out 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.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.
