Lumecca is a powerful intense pulsed light treatment for pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in both the complexion and clarity of skin. Lumecca operates via photothermolysis, providing a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. In just 1-3 sessions, Lumecca improves the appearance of age spots (red/brown pigmentation), sun damage, vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasia), rosacea (redness), and freckles. This treatment can be used on all areas of the body but the most common treatment zones are those areas commonly exposed to the sun (such as the face, neck, chest, legs, hands and arms). During the treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca IPL handpiece 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 the pigmented spots with the pigmented lesions flaking off in the week afterward. This process leads to an evening of the skin tone and complexion. 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. An improved skin appearance can be noted after the firs session but multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regimens depend on the severity of the skin damage, skin type, treatment type and the energy settings. Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
