PIGMENT & VASCULAR ISSUES

For patients looking to address facial pigmentation, superficial vessels, skin texture and/or photodamage, IPL is the optimal solution. IPL treatments improve skin complexion, reduce skin irregularities and help patients look years younger. IPL “photofacial” helps address age spots (red/brown pigmentation), sun damage, vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasias), rosacea (redness) and freckles. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK:

Lumecca is a breakthrough intense pulsed light (IPL) that delivers up to 3X more energy in the 500-600 nm range to improve efficacy for vascular and pigmented lesions. It is optimized for clinicians to treat a variety of skin types and conditions with just a single session.

BENEFITS:

In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:

  • Age spots (red/brown pigmentations).
  • Sun damage
  • Vascular lesions (spider veins)
  • Rosacea (redness)

 

Lumecca FAQs:

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?

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.  This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.

WHAT STEPS MUST BE TAKEN BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

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.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER LUMECCA?

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.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?

An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results.  Treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.

HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session.  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 spider or leg veins, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
