LUMECCA™ is a most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) which is used to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. LUMECCA™ operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.
LUMECCA™ improves the appearance of the skin including:
• Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
• Sun damage
• Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangliectasias)
• Rosacea (redness)
LUMECCA™ ™ HOW IT WORKS
LUMECCA™ 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.
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.
