Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) that is used to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one treatment patients will notice improvements in their complexion and significant clarity of their skin.
“An even complexion is the first sign of health and vitality- and the best canvas for any services our clients want. Lumecca is the finishing polish to any aesthetic procedures or as a stand alone treatment to bring out natural beauty.” -Joel Strehl DO, FACS, FACOS
Lumecca can be used to treat the entire face or can be targeted to specific areas of concern.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits?
In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:
- Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
- Vascular lesions
- Rosacea (redness)
- Sun damage
What should I expect during and after Lumecca?
During the treatment there will be bright flashes of light from the hand piece and what feels like a light snapping sensation. Redness and slight warming of the skin are common after treatment and usually subside quickly. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots, in the weeks afterwards the pigmented lesions will flake off. After treating vascular lesions you may see the vein disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
What steps should be taken before the treatment?
Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning at least one month prior to receiving a Lumecca treatment.
How many sessions are recommended?
An improved appearance of the skin can be noted after the first session, but multiple sessions will provide better results. Your individual treatment regimen will depend on the severity of skin damage, skin type, and the type of treatment needed (vascular vs sun damage). Lumecca treatments are typically purchased in packages of 3 sessions.
How quickly will I see results?
Improvements to skin complexion and sun damage spots can be seen a few days after the first treatment. Your skin will continue to look younger and brighter over time with the best results after 1-2 weeks. For vascular treatments results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
