What is an Lumecca IPL?
Lumecca is a breakthrough intense pulsed light (IPL) that delivers up to 3X more energy in the 500-600 nm range to improve efficacy for vascular and pigmented lesions. It is optimized for clinicians to treat a variety of lesions with fewer sessions.
Lumecca is a therapy
that is used for many different skin conditions. For aesthetic purposes,
it helps improve skin tone and decrease hyperpigmentation (dark spots)
caused by sun and aging, rosacea and even acne. Following treatment, the
overall look of the skin is more even and radiant.
How long do Lumecca results last?
While it depends upon client skin condition prior to and post treatment, 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 result. For vascular treatments such as spider or leg veins, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
Common Questions about the Lumecca treatment
Is it effective?
FDA approved this treatment has been proven effective for resolving hyperpigmentation and other conditions for clients. Consulting with us will help determine if this is the best treatment for your goals.
Will my face look red?
For the first 48 hours after your treatment, your skin may have a reddish or pink hue, much like with a sunburn, and your skin will feel especially sensitive.
Is it painful?
Usually clients experience no pain since a numbing agent is used, but the procedure can feel like a rubber band snap or a tingle with heat.
How long does it take?
Each treatment takes about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area. The device’s heat also stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, making pores look smaller and skin look younger.
