Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements to the complexion and clarity of the skin. Operating using the properties of photothermolysis, photofacial is achieved through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.
What are the benefits of Lumecca?
In just 1-3 sessions, Lumecca improves the appearance of:
Age spots (red/brown pigmentation)
Vascular lesions such as facial spider veins and poikiloderma
What areas can be treated?
Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body. The most common ares of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, decolletage, legs, hands and arms.
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 and tanning.
What can I expect during and after treatment?
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 one hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of the skin tone. After treatment vascular lesions you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
