What is IPL | Lumecca™?
Lumecca is the most powerful Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial treatment available in the market with the ability to target a variety of different skin concerns.
What does it treat?
With a series of treatments, Lumecca™ IPL treats age spots (red/brown pigmentations), sun damage, vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasia), rosacea (redness), fine lines and freckles.
How quickly will I see results?
After the first treatment, significant results are seen with improvement in the complexion and clarity of the skin. What is the downtime? Lumecca™ IPL is safe to be used on all areas of the body with minimal social downtime. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal post-treatment effects and will usually subside within an hour. Makeup can be applied immediately following the treatment.
Over the next 24-48 hours, darkening of pigmented spots can occur and will flake off in the week following the treatment leading to an evening out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions, you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a colour change in the vessel which will dissipate after a few days. 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. The skin will be sensitive to sunlight post treatment and it is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
