Lumecca is used by our skincare specialists to treat common facial flaws, such as blemishes and vascular (blood vessels) lesions, skin discoloration, freckles, irregular skin texture and even treat sun damaged skin and Rosacea. It can be used on all areas of the body, but is most commonly used on the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
Lumecca has been approved for all skin types and has provided successful results for thousands of patients in the US alone. If you are concerned about its side effects, know that they are rare and most patients experience only slight redness and warming of the skin. Pigmented lesions treated with IPL may also flake off during the weeks following treatment, evening out your skin tone.
what we treat
during your lumecca treatment
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 vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
