Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented dark spots and vascular lesions. The treatment helps to significantly improve the complexion, and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using a photo-thermolysis, which provides a PhotoFacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. Compared to other IPL laser treatments, Lumecca uses a larger amount of wavelengths in the 500nm to 700nm range, which in turn allows for it to encourage regeneration of healthy cells while promoting your body’s natural ability to remove imperfections.
The Intense Pulsed Light from the laser treatment heats the dermis and pulls pigment (brown spots) to the surface of your skin. The spots will darken and look like fine coffee grounds. This pigment either absorbs into the body or flakes off in the days following the treatment.

PRIOR TO YOUR TREATMENT:
Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds before the treatment and during any stages of the treatment for a minimum of 2 weeks.
DURING YOUR TREATMENT:
During your treatment, there will be a bright flash of light from the IPL laser that feels like a light elastic sensation. The treatment is quick and painless.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT:
- Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone.
- Always use a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 or higher.
