Lumecca IPL uses concentrated pulses of light to target many types of pigmentation and uneven skin tone. If you’re bothered by sunspots or redness, this is an amazing, non-invasive treatment option!
Sun damage, facial veins, rosacea, age spots, and other types of skin discoloration are improved with Lumecca IPL treatments. Lumecca excels by being 3 times more power and efficient than traditional IPLs done by other brands.
Its high energy levels precisely controlled by our aesthetic nurses mean pigmented and vascular lesions absorb more light, which breaks down discoloration at the source. Patients often observe a significant reduction in skin imperfections after a single session, quickly revealing a smoother, more uniform skin tone.

Is it painful?
Even though Lumecca IPL is more potent than standard IPL procedures, the sapphire tip creates a strong cooling sensation to minimize discomfort during treatment. Patients often compare the feeling to the snap of a rubber band on the skin. You’ll wear eye protection during the treatment and notice flashes of bright light.
What can I expect after my IPL treatment?
It's normal to notice that your skin feels a bit warm and appears slightly red for about an hour or so after the treatment. During the next 48 hours, pigmented spots targeted during the procedure will start darkening. Those pigmented lesions will begin flaking off a few days later. Treated spider veins or other vascular lesions blanch and then disappear during the course of a few days. Side effects after a Lumecca treatment are rare and, if they occur, typically last only a few days. You should use sunscreen daily and avoid exposing the treatment area to direct sunlight.
