One of the normal parts of aging is the gradual acquisition of sunspots or having uneven skin tone.
That’s where a device such as Lumecca comes in handy—this device allows doctors and nurses to treat a
variety of skin conditions such as facial pigmentation, superficial vessels, skin texture, and/or photodamage.
The results: patients have even skin tone aka skin brightening!
Lumecca is a breakthrough IPL that delivers up to 3x more energy in the 500-600 nm range to improve efficacy
for vascular and pigmented areas that’s effective for light or dark skin tones. Patients begin to see results after
their very first session. For this procedure, we will create a customized treatment plan for you to reach your aesthetic goals!
The benefit of Lumecca’s color blind technology is that it can be used on all skin types. The unique properties allow even darker tones to be treated. Lumecca is designed to brighten and even out skin tones for a youthful appearance!
Lumecca helps to improve the following:
The doctor or nurse at Visthetic Surgery Institute & MedSpa™ will provide you with the proper guidance to ensure you get the best results. We recommend avoiding direct and excessive sun at least one month before scheduling your procedure. This also includes tanning beds!
Each patient will have a unique experience with Lumecca, but one of the primary benefits of this procedure is that it is relatively painless thanks to a strong sapphire cooling tip that puts the patient at ease.
During the treatment, patients report a light elastic sensation on the treated areas.
Every patient’s recovery process will vary, but generally this is a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime.
24 Hours Post Procedure
Patients report redness in their skin and a general warmth on the treated area; this usually only lasts an hour or so.
24-48 Hours Post Procedure
Patients may see their pigmented spots get darker after the treatment; this will subside and is normal!
1 Week Post Procedure
Patients will note pigmented lesions begin to flake off, resulting in an even skin tone underneath. If we are treating vascular lesions, patients can see the veins blanch and then disappear or see a color change in the vessel, which will get lighter and lighter after a few days post-procedure.
Patients begin to see results within a few days post-procedure. Within two weeks, patients begin to see their skin tone even out and look brighter. We recommend several Lumecca treatments for the best results!
The results of Lumecca will vary from patient to patient, depending on their skin type and their aesthetic goals. Lifestyle also makes a huge difference, and we recommend wearing sunscreen daily and protecting your skin from UV rays as much as possible.
We will also recommend a skin care treatment plan to complement your Lumecca package so you get the best results!
