What is Lumecca?
Lumecca uses intense pulsed light ( IPL ) to target age spots; sun damage; acne, acne scaring, fine lines, wrinkles, helps acne flares, kills bacteria within acne, shrinks pores, tighten skin, even skin tone and texture, pigmentation issues (blood vessel lesions, port - wine stains, spider veins); and Rosacea . It’s most often used on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Results can be seen after one session
How does it work?
Each treatment takes about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area. Your session will begin with your Healthcare Professional providing you with protective goggles. They’ll apply a cooling gel before moving the handpiece across the targeted area.As the calibrated light waves pulse and heat the surface of your skin, pigmented spots will be pulled to the surface. These flakes of pigment will darken and slough off over the next few days.The device’s heat also stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, making pores look smaller and skin look firmer and smoother.
Does it hurt?
Depending on your pain tolerance, Lumecca can be easy to endure as it is a quicker treatment. A cooling gel is applied to make the procedure more comfortable. The Lumecca handpiece also has a regulating sapphire cooling tip to ensure the light never gets too hot. The procedure can feel like a rubber band snap or a tingle with heat.
After your treatment your skin may be a bit red and warm, this can last anywhere from an hour to a day. However, because Lumecca doesn’t injure or puncture the skin, you won’t have any actual downtime. The most important aftercare for Lumecca is sun exposure. Sun exposure should be limited for 2 weeks. Hats are a must as well please.
