Lumecca IPL Skin Rejuvenation
What is Lumecca?
Lumecca is powerful intense pulsed light (IPL). used to treat pigmented and vascular lesions to improve the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial 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 pigmentations)
• Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma
• Rosacea (redness)
• Sun damage
Is there anything I need to do before a Lumecca treatment?
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.
What can I expect during the treatment?
During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from Lumecca, and a sensation on your skin that feels like a light snap from an elastic band. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subside 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 colour change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
How many sessions are recommended?
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings. We always recommend a consultation with one of our experienced Aesthetic Therapists to create a tailored treatment plan in order a achieve the best results.
A patch test and consultation must be done prior to treatment.
