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
In just 1-3 sessions, Lumecca improves the appearance of:
• Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
• Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma
• Rosacea (redness)
• Sun damage
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. This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
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 mild snapping sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subside within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards the pigmented areas flake off, leading to a clear and even 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 recommended
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regimen depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, 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 photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as facial telangiectasias, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
Are there any side effects
Most patients do not experience side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Brown spots may darken and flake off within 1-2 weeks. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning. Remember: Always wear SPF daily!
