What Makes a Photofacial with Lumecca Different?

Lumecca stands out from other intense pulsed light (IPL) devices because it attracts pigment much better, and with less energy. This means less discomfort and downtime, and a lower risk of burnt skin. Lumecca treats pigmentation much more quickly than other devices, only requiring about two treatments versus 5-6. It also helps to keep the skin looking younger for a longer time, with results that are smooth, clear, and radiant.

The Most Advanced IPL Technology: How it Works

Lumecca addresses skin conditions through a process known as selective photothermolysis, which means that it targets the lesion only — leaving the surrounding skin damage-free. Sun-exposed areas like the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands, and arms can be significantly improved even after only one session. 

  • Excellent for both light and dark skin tones
  • Sapphire cooling tip keeps discomfort minimal

Photofacial with Lumecca: Treatment Details

Before the treatment begins, we will cleanse your skin and prep it for the IPL. You will be given protective eyewear, and we will apply a gel to help with conduction. The Lumecca handheld device will pass over the skin twice, delivering powerful light therapy to treat your skin. Most patients find the treatment very tolerable, describing the sensation of the light flashes like a tiny rubber band snap on the skin. Treatment time takes approximately 20 minutes.

Recovery and Results

After a Lumecca treatment, patients typically feel a little sunburned for 20 minutes to one hour. After that, resuming regular activities (including applying makeup) should be completely fine. 

During the next couple of days, you will most likely see pigmented areas becoming darker. This is normal and part of the recovery process.

The areas will first become darker, will then raise and flake off, and then healthy new skin underneath will be revealed. Your skin will keep improving, with final results at 1-2 weeks.

How long do results from Lumecca last?

Most patients need to undergo a Lumecca maintenance treatment every 6-12 months following the initial treatment course.

How many Lumecca sessions will I need?

One of the best things about Lumecca is that it requires fewer treatments than other IPL/BBL® devices. However, some patients still need to undergo multiple sessions in order to get the best results. The number of treatments you’ll need will be determined during your consultation, and will depend on your skin type, the severity of your specific damage, and whether your condition is vascular or based on sun damage.

How often can I have photofacials with Lumecca done?

You can have a photofacial with Lumecca every 3-4 weeks.
