What are Lumecca IPL treatments?
Lumecca IPL is an ideal treatment for skin care concerns ranging from redness, light acne scars and rosacea, to broken capillaries and hyper pigmentation. It involves a non-ablative laser that has been carefully calibrated to seek out specific pigments in the skin – redness, darker discolored patches or dark spots from acne scarring. In fact, this advanced laser skin resurfacing treatment can:
Repair Small Blood vessels
Eradicate Sun Spots or skin irregularities
Combat Acne and Eliminate Large pores
Treat Rosacea or redness in the skin
Stimulate collagen and improve skin texture.
The IPL laser operates using a process known as photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the IPL treatment that feels like a light elastic sensation. The Lumecca IPL can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. These often include the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
What are the benefits of Lumecca IPL treatments?
Compared to other types of IPL systems, Lumecca IPL therapy is more advanced. There is no pain in the treatment. It takes less time to undergo one treatment with the Lumecca IPL system than it does other systems. You may see complete rejuvenation in as little as one to two treatments, which means that it works quickly when in the hands of an expert.
These advantages are a direct result of how Lumecca IPL works. It uses a larger amount of wavelengths in the 500nm to 700nm range, which in turn allows for it to encourage regeneration of healthy cells while promoting your body’s natural ability to remove imperfections.
Who is the ideal candidate for Lumecca IPL treatments?
All age and ethnic groups are considered ideal for Lumecca IPL treatment. Middle-aged people between 30 and 50 will likely find the most benefit from IPL treatment due to the number of skin conditions that tend to accompany these age groups.

What should I expect after my Lumecca IPL treatments?
During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation. 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 veins blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
How long do the Lumecca IPL treatments last?
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 or leg veins, results can be seen up to two weeks later. The results of IPL for the treatment of sun damage are long lasting, however, if you go out in the sun and get more sun damage and discoloration you may need to get more IPL treatments.
