What is Lumecca?

As the name suggests, IPL emits quick bursts of light to rejuvenate the skin. The light targets pigmented lesions and vascular lesions to restore an even skin tone. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we’re proud to us the Lumecca device as it produces optimal results in just 1-2 treatments, compared to other IPL devices that require as many as 4-6 treatments for the same results.

What are the Benefits of Lumecca?
Lumecca is the preferred IPL device for addressing vascular lesions and pigmented lesions through phototherapy treatments. With Lumecca, we can effectively address the following concerns:
- Sun damage & age spots
- Port wine stains
- & many more vascular lesions and pigmentation concerns
What is the Lumecca Treatment Like?
The Lumecca treatment is administered using a handheld device that is passed over the skin. As it passes over the treatment area, it will emit quick bursts of light energy. Many patients compare this to the sensation of a rubber band snapping on the skin. However, the Lumecca device has a sapphire cooling tip to keep the skin cool and comfortable. The Lumecca treatment is typically completed in under 30 minutes, although the exact duration of treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area.
Is There Any Downtime After Lumecca Treatments?
After Lumecca IPL treatments, you may experience temporary redness and warming in the skin that lasts a few hours. In the days following treatment, the skin may actually appear darker before results start to appear. Skin may also flake off in the treatment area during this time. For these reasons, the skin will be sensitive in the days following treatment. We advise patients to limit sun exposure, use sunscreen and take other precautions to protect the skin in the days immediately following treatment. However, you will be able to return to work and most other activities after your appointment.
What Results Can I Expect from Lumecca?
You’ll begin to notice results from Lumecca within a week of treatment, after any side effects have healed. Some patients may achieve optimal results after a single treatment session, while others may require additional treatments to achieve their treatment goals. We’ll help you determine how many treatments are needed during your initial consultation so that you know exactly what to expect from your Lumecca IPL treatments.
