WHAT IS LUMECCA™ IPL

Lumecca™ is a powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) Photofacial to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. The technology uses photothermolysis, which provides the Photofacial though the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS

In just 1-3 sessions IPL Photofacial improves the appearance of:

  • Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
  • Sun damage
  • Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains)
  • Rosacea (redness)
  • Freckles

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED

IPL Photofacial 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.

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 IPL TREATMENT

During treatment there will be a bright flash of light 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 afterwards the pigmented lesions flake of, 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 NEEDED

An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session and multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime depends 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 Photofacial sessions will improve the final results. For vascular treatments results can be seen immediately.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Most clients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Clients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.*
