The Lumecca skin rejuvenation method uses the most powerfully advanced intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, treating any pigment or vascular lesion on the face or body. Using selective photothermolysis, Lumecca is a painless light therapy that uses precise wavelengths in order to achieve the best possible results on targeted areas of the face or body. This is all done in addition to brightening the surrounding tissue. It is an ideal treatment for age spot removal and many more skin and vein conditions.
Even after only one treatment, you’ll see considerable improvement in your complexion. Your skin will experience renewed clearness. It is an advanced solution for improving skin complexion, reducing irregularities and looking years younger.
As soon as the first treatment is done, you will likely notice immediate improvement. Several treatments will present an even better result. Your personal regimen will depend on how severe the damage is, as well as your skin type and whether your regimen is for spider vein treatment or conditions such as sun damage. The type of regimen determines the energy settings.
In just a few days, the improvement in your appearance will already be noticeable. Skin continues to improve within one to two weeks, regaining a youthful and brilliant glow. Having several sessions improves the ultimate results. For spider vein treatment or other vascular conditions, the result will be evident within two weeks.
The vast majority of those treated don’t have side effects at all. Skin reactions generally resolve in a matter of a few hours. Some people might experience sensitivity to sunlight right after treatments. We highly recommend avoiding direct sunlight or tanning.
Any area of the body is treatable with Lumecca, but the most frequently treated areas are those damaged by years of sun exposure. These tend to be the face, neck, chest, legs, hands or arms. It is also commonly used for age spot removal and spider vein treatment.
For a month before beginning the regimen, you’ll need to refrain from direct or excess exposure to sunlight.
As you undergo the regimen, you will notice brilliant flashes of light from the Lumecca instrument. Reddening and a sense of warmth are usual once the treatment is complete. They generally subside an hour afterward. During the twenty-four to forty-eight hours following, pigmented spots may darken. This is perfectly normal, and within a week these lesions will shed off. This leads to the skin’s tone beginning to even out. After treating vascular conditions such as spider veins, the veins may grow pale and vanish, or you might notice the shade of the treated veins change. This will dissipate within a few days.
