If you’re experiencing age spots, sun damage, pigmentation issues, or rosacea, Lumecca should be on the top of your list of potential solutions. Age and sun spots often appear on the skin of people in their 30s or 40s who enjoy sunbathing or spending time outdoors. These spots can be frustrating for those seeking an even, radiant complexion.
Rosacea can leave you with patches of redness that form on your skin, contributing to an uneven skin tone. This condition can be challenging to treat, but Lumecca can remove the red spots.
Lumecca is also approved for individuals seeking to remove spider veins, port wine stains, and angiomas. These veins cause no medical issues, but they can be unsightly and cloud an otherwise clear complexion.
What Is Lumecca?
Lumecca is an IPL treatment (intense pulsed light treatment) that uses a laser to target discolored areas on the skin. The laser automatically picks up areas of darker color and sends a laser beam to eliminate their appearance. The intense pulsed light can penetrate the layers of the skin without harming the surface area.
Lumecca is FDA-approved as a photorejuvenation treatment for rosacea, hyperpigmentation, age spots, and spider veins. Patients often see significant results after undergoing only one treatment, but several sessions may be necessary to achieve complete treatment goals.
What Are the Benefits of Lumecca?
Lumecca has several benefits for individuals seeking skin rejuvenation, which are outlined below.
A Lumecca treatment can be completed in as little as a half-hour. Patients who are short on time and long on responsibilities will appreciate a quick appointment that provides results. You can undergo Lumecca and quickly return to your regular day.
This IPL treatment has no recovery period. There is no need to return home after your appointment or forego your normal activities. This is a significant advantage for individuals who can’t afford to take off work or spend time away from their families.
Lumecca is different from other IPL treatments because the machine contains a cooling tip. The cooling end reduces the warmth felt on the skin. Oftentimes, other IPL treatments can feel hot to the touch.
Variety of Skin Concerns Treated
While other treatments may focus on one skin concern, Lumecca’s intense pulsed light can handle a wide variety of them.
In some cases, you may be able to address all of your skin concerns with Lumecca rather than seeking several different treatments. This can make Lumecca a cost-effective choice for those seeking to minimize skin treatment expenses.
You’ll see initial results from your Lumecca treatment immediately following your appointment. The optimal results will be apparent within two weeks. This is advantageous over other treatments that may require several appointments before achieving the desired outcome.
There are no needles, injections, or incisions with Lumecca. The only impact on your skin will be the laser’s intense pulsed light. Lumecca is a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t require any surgical intervention.
Lumecca can be a breath of fresh air for those with a spotted complexion. It removes brown spots, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, spider veins, and fine lines. Undergoing several sessions of Lumecca can ease your complexion concerns and give you a more youthful appearance.
How Many Sessions of Lumecca Will I Need?
The number of sessions with Lumecca depends on your skin care needs. Some people obtain significant results with a single session. Others may need two or three before seeing clarity in their complexion. Our trained team will devise an appropriate treatment plan.
Does Lumecca Provide Any Skin Tightening Benefits?
Lumecca is an IPL treatment, but it is not designed for skin tightening. Individuals may find improved skin texture after their procedure. Other procedures such as Forma or microneedling can provide skin tightening results. Miia Medspa offers both services to our clients seeking tighter skin.
How Long Do Results from Lumecca Last?
Results from Lumecca are long-lasting. However, you’ll need to take special care of your skin to prevent new spots from appearing. Wearing sunscreen daily can prevent future hyperpigmentation and brown spots. Our knowledgeable team can provide helpful skin care tips to protect your skin from future damage.
What Can I Expect During a Lumecca Treatment?
Before undergoing Lumecca, you’ll meet with one of our skilled team members to discuss your treatment goals. We’ll examine your skin to determine whether the areas are appropriate for an IPL treatment. We’ll also ask you for your medical history and a list of medications you are taking to ensure that you’re a good candidate for Lumecca.
Before undergoing your treatment, you’ll need to follow a set of instructions for several days to ensure that you obtain the best results.
On the day of your appointment, we’ll thoroughly cleanse the area to be treated. The Lumecca machine will target areas of discoloration and any visible broken veins you wish to remove. The entire procedure should last less than half an hour but may take longer if you have larger areas to treat.
Following the treatment, you’ll be able to return to your regular activities. We’ll give you aftercare instructions that you can use in the following weeks to care for your skin.
