Lumecca is a breakthrough treatment for pigmentation and vascular lesions (thread veins), helping to improve skin complexion, reduce irregularities and take years off your appearance.
It is the most powerful intense light (IPL) treatment available, delivering up to three times more energy in the 500-600 nm to skin all over the body, but most commonly to areas exposed to the sun including the face, neck, décolletage, legs, arms and hands.
After just one treatment you will notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin.
Using photothermolysis, in just 1-3 sessions, Lumecca can help:
- Age spots (red/brown pigmentation)
- Vascular lesions such as spider veins
- Sun damage
How It Works
A month prior to your treatment you must avoid direct sun exposure for one month, and for a month after your treatment. Even if you use a high SPF on your skin, the residual heat within your skin can still affect the outcome.
During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca machine, that will feel 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. However, these 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 will dissipate after a few days.
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 facial telangiectasias, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
