What is Lumecca?
Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photo facial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.
What are the benefits?
Lumecca improves the appearance of the skin including:
- Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
- Sun damage
- Vascular lesions (spider veins, port win stains, leg telangliectasis)
- Rosacea (redness)
What areas can be treated?
Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. These often include the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
How many sessions are required?
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session and multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regimens depend on the severity of skin damage, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.
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 and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photo facial 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.
