It is safe to say that aging can lead to all kinds of facial skin imperfections. Among these are facial veins that normally make the skin look less even or thinner than it actually is. Luckily, you do not need to undergo surgery to have those facial veins removed thanks to Lumecca. Lumecca is a type of IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy that offers a noninvasive technique to get rid of small facial veins.
It works by destroying dead skin cells beneath the skin since these are often what make those small facial veins visible. By doing so, Lumecca leaves patients’ skin looking clearer and healthier. Another good thing about this approach of removing small facial veins is that, in most cases, it requires a minimal amount of preparation and recovery.
To know whether removing visible veins with Lumecca is suitable for you, contact D’Andra Lee MSN, APRN, FNP-C. D’Andra is a board-certified family nurse practitioner with vast knowledge in helping keep your skin healthy-looking, clear, and natural with all kinds of equipment and techniques.
Lumecca IPL Therapy: What is It?
Lumecca is a handheld device used to treat complexion-related issues around the skin. It is versatile and works well in getting rid of age spots, skin tone issues, pigmented lesions, facial veins, and sun damage from the face to all over the body.
To use the device, our practitioners pass it over your skin as it emits pulses of light energy. This light energy targets specific colors in the skin. The energy heats those specific colors, housed in structures of skin cells, to a temperature at which they are damaged beyond repair. The body then knows to eliminate them and regenerate new skin cells in the area.
Lumecca also works well in making sure other visible veins, such as varicose veins, do not become visible. To achieve this, it weakens old veins that have been worn. By weakening these veins, it helps ensure that they die out eventually. The result is blood passing through the body via other healthy veins that are not visible at the surface .
Number of IPL Therapy Sessions Needed
At Elite Aesthetics & Wellness, D’Andra Lee and co. usually customize each Lumecca treatment plan for individuals in Newport Beach who request it. That is because the formation of facial veins varies from one person to another. With that said, most people need around one to three treatment sessions. And since skin cells always turn over every 30 days, you will need to spend around one month between each session if you haven’t gotten ideal results.
Does Lumecca Have Side Effects?
After Lumecca treatments, you may notice a tiny bit of swelling and redness in the treated area. This, however, normally disappears after one day. Also, during treatment, you may experience a bit of discomfort. But since the treatment time is incredibly quick, you will not find this discomfort too bothersome.
In case you experience pain or irritation either during the treatment or afterward, do not hesitate to let us know. Another thing to note is that you may be required to stop using some medications for a few days before your Lumecca treatment.
