Lumecca is one of the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments on the market. This treatment delivers up to 3 times more energy than other IPLs and drastically improves pigmentation, superficial vessels, and overall skin tone.
Lumecca provides a photo-facial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment and can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are those that are regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
Patients report a tingly or a mild snap sensation. Most patients report to tolerate the treatment well with no or very minimal discomfort. There is no need for anesthetic.
Depending on the treatment area, Lumecca treatment typically takes 20-30 minutes.
Lumecca provides excellent results in as little as 1-3 sessions, compared to other IPL treatments that can take 4-6 sessions. After just a single session, patients notice significant improvements in their complexion and clarity of the skin.
There is no physical downtime and social downtime for most patients is very minimal. An IPL treatment targets and causes the pigment to surface first and then it dissipates. Depending on the severity of underlaying pigment each patient will experience a different recovery and social downtime. However, make-up can be applied 1 day post-treatment so most people do return to their normal activities right away.
Recommended treatment protocol is a series of three sessions. However, most patients do see a significant improvement in just 1-2 sessions compared to a standard IPL which require 4-6 sessions.
