What is Lumecca?
Lumeccas is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmentation 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 pigmentation)
Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma
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 regulary exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, decolletage, legs, hands, and arms.
What steps must be taken before the procedure?
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning on emonth 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 darening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards 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 session are required?
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, sin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.
How quickly will i see results?
Sun damage and skin compexion 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 final result. For vascular treatments such as facial telangiectasias, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks
