IPL Skin Rejuvenation
What does Lumecca treat?
Clinicians can use Lumecca to treat a variety of skin types and conditions ranging from facial pigmentation, superficial vessels, skin texture and/or photo-damage. The most common areas of treatment are areas that are regularly exposed to the sun. Often these areas include the face, neck, decolletage, legs, hands and arms.
Technology makes a difference
Lumecca treats a wide array of skin rejuvenation concerns with a custom xenon flash lamp delivering 40% of total pulse energy in the 500-600 nm range (sweet spot of hemoglobin and melanin absorption), while standard IPL's only deliver 10-15%.
That's why Lumecca can achieve complete photorejuvenation in as little as 1 or 2 treatments versus 4-6 with standard IPL's. Lumecca offers the most efficacious treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions due to its high peak power and optimized output while improving patient comfort (no pain) and safety utilizing Lumecca's strong liquid cooling via its sapphire cooled tip.

What to expect
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 off, 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 dissapates after a few days.
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 result. For vascular treatments such as spider veins, results can be seen immediately in up to 2 weeks.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session and multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime's depend on the severity of skin damage, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.
WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?
It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning. Medical grade skincare to accelerate skin healing and to protect the regenerating tissue.
