Lumecca (IPL)

What Is Lumecca And How Does It Work?

What is an IPL treatment? IPL stands for intense pulsed light, which is a state-of-the-art non-invasive and minimally painful form of treatment that’s currently transforming the very face of skin rejuvenation. This treatment actively works to correct years of skin damage caused by excessive exposure to and lack of protection from the harmful UV rays of the sun. As a result, it can make you look years younger almost instantaneously.

Lumecca treats vascular and pigmented lesions to help reduce the look of aging throughout your entire body including the décolletage, the hands, the arms, legs, neck, face, and anywhere else that you might notice sun or age spots.

What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated with Lumecca?

Since Lumecca is a skin rejuvenation treatment technique, it can treat pretty much any part of the body. But, most people tend to focus on the only the most visible parts of their bodies that demonstrate signs of aging, including:

  • The backs of the hands
  • The forearms
  • The upper arms
  • The thighs
  • The legs
  • The shins
  • The face
  • The neck
  • The décolletage

If your main goal is to eliminate sun damage and take about a decade off the look of your face and entire body, then Lumecca is a safe, convenient, affordable, and effective option.

What Can You Expect During and After Lumecca Treatment?

During the procedure, you’ll notice a flash of light coming from the handheld device as Dr. Gantous slowly and gently moves it up and down the impacted area. You’ll also notice a slight warm sensation on the treated areas.

Immediately following treatment, you’ll see bright red spots where the light made contact with your skin. This is perfectly normal and should subside within approximately 24-48 hours. Once the redness is completely gone, you may notice that the pigmented areas are darker than before the procedure. This is also normal. Within a few days, those pigmented areas will scab and flake off on their own. To prevent infection, please refrain from picking at the scabs and allow them to heal naturally. Throughout this process, your skin is healing, regenerating, and evening itself out.

The healing process can take anywhere from one to two weeks. After that, you should start to notice beautiful, clear, even, smooth, and younger looking skin.

The number of sessions depends largely on the amount and mass of areas that require treatment. Most patients only need about 1 or 2 treatment sessions, but others may require 4 to 6 sessions.
