As a non-invasive and gentle treatment option, Lumecca IPL has rapidly gained popularity among those seeking a more radiant and youthful appearance. With minimal downtime and long-lasting results, it's no surprise that more and more people are turning to this remarkable treatment. 


What is Lumecca IPL?

Lumecca IPL is an advanced skin rejuvenation procedure that harnesses the power of light energy to target and correct multiple skin issues, including sun damage, age spots, redness, and broken capillaries. Developed by InMode, a leading manufacturer of medical and aesthetic devices, Lumecca IPL offers a safe, non-invasive, and highly effective solution for those seeking to improve their skin's overall appearance.

Unlike traditional IPL treatments, Lumecca IPL features a more powerful and focused light source, allowing for faster, more efficient treatment sessions with fewer sessions needed overall. This innovative technology also boasts a greater degree of precision, meaning it can target specific skin concerns without affecting the surrounding healthy skin. Lumecca IPL is a game-changing option for those looking to achieve flawless skin with minimal downtime and discomfort.


How Does Lumecca IPL Work?

Lumecca IPL works by emitting high-intensity pulses of light that penetrate the skin's surface, targeting various chromophores (color-bearing cells) within the skin. These targeted chromophores absorb the light energy, which is then converted into heat. This heat subsequently destroys the targeted cells, promoting the skin's natural healing process and stimulating collagen production. The result is a smoother, more even, and radiant complexion.

During a Lumecca IPL treatment session, we will first cleanse your skin and apply a cooling gel to the treatment area. We will then use a handheld device to deliver the light energy to your skin in controlled pulses. The treatment is relatively painless, with most patients describing the sensation as akin to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Depending on the size of the treatment area and the specific skin concerns being addressed, a Lumecca IPL session can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. From start to finish your entire appointment should be less than 45 minutes.


Five Benefits When Treating with Lumecca IPL


1. Reduced pigmentation and sun damage: Lumecca IPL treatment effectively targets and breaks down melanin in the skin, diminishing the appearance of age spots, freckles, and other forms of pigmentation. This ultimately leads to a more even and youthful skin tone.

2. Improved redness and broken capillaries: By targeting the hemoglobin within blood vessels, Lumecca IPL can help reduce redness and broken capillaries associated with conditions such as rosacea and facial telangiectasia.

3. Enhanced skin texture and tone: The heat generated during a Lumecca IPL treatment stimulates collagen production, leading to firmer, more supple skin. This, in turn, can help to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores, resulting in a smoother, more refined complexion.

4. Minimal downtime and discomfort: As a non-invasive procedure, a Lumecca IPL treatment requires little to no downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities quickly. Additionally, the treatment is relatively painless, with most patients experiencing only mild discomfort.

5. Long-lasting results: With a series of Lumecca IPL treatments, you can expect to see long-lasting improvements in your skin's appearance. Results typically become more noticeable after each session and can be maintained with regular touch-up treatments as needed.


Post-treatment Care and Results

Following a Lumecca IPL treatment, it's vital to take proper care of your skin to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential side effects. Some essential post-treatment care tips include:

  • Avoid sun exposure: Protecting your skin from the sun is crucial after a Lumecca IPL treatment, as your skin will be more sensitive to UV rays. Be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and avoid direct sun exposure for at least two weeks following your procedure.

  • Keep your skin clean and hydrated: Gently cleanse your skin twice daily with a mild, non-abrasive cleanser, and apply a hydrating moisturizer to help soothe and nourish your skin. We have great products in our office you can use!

  • Avoid heat and hot water: Refrain from using hot water on your face, as this can exacerbate redness and irritation. Instead, use lukewarm water when cleansing your skin and avoid saunas, steam rooms, and strenuous exercise for at least 48 hours following your treatment.

  • Follow post-care instructions: We will provide you with specific post-treatment care instructions, with specifics regarding the use of topical creams or ointments. Be sure to follow these directions closely to promote proper healing and ensure the best possible results.


When Will You See Results?

Most patients notice improvements in their skin's appearance within one to two weeks following their Lumecca IPL treatment. These improvements typically continue to develop over the following weeks and months, with optimal results usually achieved after a series of three to five treatments spaced approximately four weeks apart.
