Lumecca is the newest generation of IPL technology, which stands for intense pulse light or is sometimes referred to as photo-facial, treats pigmented and vascular lesions.
— Dr. Mark Anton, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon
While you may have tried IPL in the past, the Lumecca technology and the delivery of light to the cell is different and more effective in treating sun damage, hyperpigmentation, aging skin, broken capillaries, vessels, rosacea, melasma, and brown spots.
Lumecca delivers a spectrum of light waves from 515-580 for safe, gentle and effective skin renewal. Aside from being a powerhouse for the correction of pigmented and vascular lesions, Lumecca is a game-changer for treating aging skin. Recent studies point to the power of light to effectively treat signs of aging skin such as crepey skin, large pores, fine lines, and even deeper wrinkles. Light therapy has been discovered to actually change the RNA of skin cells over time and turn off the cells that cause damage and promote the aging process.
Lumecca is one of the Beauty Bank collagen building treatments offered in a monthly membership. Lumecca is a powerful IPL treatment that is as safe as it is effective for removing red and brown pigment from the skin for an overall more even complexion that glows. Light waves from a Lumecca treatment also work to reprogram the cell’s RNA by shutting off the cellular functions that cause aging and helping to stimulate the production of collagen. Lumecca treatments can be done as often as monthly to rejuvenate and maintain youthful skin. A minimum of three treatments is needed to reverse the signs of aging such as uneven pigment, fine lines, crepe skin, large pores, and a dull complexion.
Skin types 1-4 on the Fitzpatrick Scale are the best candidate for Lumecca Treatments. People with light to olive and dark olive skin tones looking to correct or prevent signs of aging such as crêpey skin, large pores, fine lines, and deeper wrinkles.
The treated area is numbed with a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes before the treatment begins. You may feel a slight snap, like a rubber band, as the pulse of light makes contact with your skin. The technician makes two passes over the cheeks, chin, lip, nose, and forehead area. Most patients report no discomfort during the 30-minute treatment process. A Zimmer cooler is on hand if needed for additional comfort.
Lumecca treatment areas include face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, and legs.
There will be a significant improvement after just one treatment. Residual pigmentation imperfections are targeted with the second and third treatments. It is important to complete all three Lumecca Brighten treatments for maximum and longest-lasting results, though visible, significant changes may not appear as they did initially. After the six to eight week treatment period skin will be noticeably brighter, the tone is more even, clear, and pores smaller. Having brighter, more even skin tone significantly reduces signs of aging so skin looks and behaves younger and more vibrant.
After the final treatment, when optimal results are achieved, your new younger-looking skin can stay that way for years to come. Of course, the aging process never stops to maintain the great results you get with the Lumecca Brightening package limit sun exposure, protect your skin with a physical sunblock, use the CORE skincare products daily at home and purchase one of the recommended Maintenance packages. With the proper sun protection, Lumecca is suitable for people with active, outdoor lifestyles who are looking to maintain their youth.
The treated area is pink to slightly red immediately following treatment but typically subsides within an hour. Slight swelling can occur but subsides within 1-3 days.
Brown granules, like coffee grains, appear on the treated area within 1-5 days and slough off between 5-14 days. Sunscreen must be worn at all times during and after recovery whenever skin is exposed to sunlight, including indirect sunlight such as driving.
