What is Lumecca®?
One of the leading intense pulsed light (IPL) systems available today, Lumecca® is an excellent way to breath new life into the tone and texture of your skin. This treatment uses light to penetrate the skin and reduce the appearance of brown spots, sun spots, and redness. Since only light is used, there is no downtime and few side effects associated with the procedure.
How Does it Work?
Lumecca® harnesses the power of intense pulsed broad-spectrum light to treat skin abnormalities. This light passes through the uppermost layers of the skin, penetrating into the structures below its surface. It is absorbed by pigmentation and blood vessels, effectively shrinking and breaking them up. Over time, these damaged structures are flushed from the body completely, leaving you with beautiful, radiant looking skin. In addition to breaking up these structures, Lumecca® stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These and other growth factors rejuvenate the skin, making it more taut, soft, and luminous. Since only the deepest layers of the skin are affected by this IPL light, there is no downtime associated with the procedure.
What are the Benefits of Lummeca®?
When it comes to IPL therapy, Lumecca® is hands down one of the best available today. While other IPL treatments usually bring optimal results in 4-6 treatment sessions, Lumecca® can do this in as little as 1-2. And unlike other IPL treatments, Lumecca® is safe for use on all different skin types and nearly any area of the body. It can treat a broad range of skin problems, including:
- Facial pigmentation.
- Superficial blood vessels.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Each Lumecca® treatment session is made painless thanks to the inclusion of an advanced chill tip that keeps the device from getting too hot. This keep the tip at a comfortable, soothing temperature, so you can feel comfortable and relaxed. Each session is relatively fast, typically taking between 30-40 minutes.
Because Lumecca® targets only the deepest layers of the skin, most patients experience zero downtime. While redness, swelling, and flaking afterwards are common, these symptoms typically subside within two days of treatment. Results can usually be seen within a week of the first treatment, with the best results appearing a few weeks after the completion of a second treatment.
