What is Lumecca?
Lumecca is an intense pulsed light (IPL) laser skin treatment that can treat precancerous skin damage, such as pigmentation and sun damage, as well as other cosmetic concerns. It works by stimulating specific structures and skin cells with targeted wavelengths of light – different wavelengths for different results.
5 Things That Make Lumecca Different
Highly Efficient Treatments
Especially for vascular concerns (spider veins, pigmented lesions, rosacea), Lumecca is highly efficient, requiring fewer treatment sessions for the same results as other IPL devices. This is because the device has a high peak power in specific wavelength ranges, leading to faster outcomes for some concerns.
How it Works
The Lumecca laser targets specific structures while leaving the epidermis (outer layer of skin) intact and unharmed. These light wavelengths penetrate and are absorbed only by the desired structures, such as blood vessels or skin cells with too much pigmentation.
It’s Very Quick
Lumecca results are speedy and some treatments take just a few minutes. The treatment doesn’t last as long as other lasers, such as erythema ablation, but this device is much more efficient than many other IPL lasers. It also allows multiple therapies to be completed during each session within a treatment plan because the time between applications is shorter than with other devices.
It’s Applicable to Several Body Areas
Lumecca is commonly requested when people start to see advanced signs of pigmentation on their faces, such as significant sun spots or redness, but it can also be used in other areas, like the hands, for a smoother, more even complexion. Due to its larger spot size and high rate of repetition, it can also be used without causing much pain almost no matter where it’s being used. It’s an effective alternative to other therapies that are painful and require longer recovery times.
It Can Treat Both Dark and Light Skin
The way the Lumecca laser targets cells means that it’s also safe for people with tan complexions. It’s effective even on people with naturally tan skin, causing no irritation or adverse scarring to the treated area. It doesn’t damage the healthy collagen in the skin, which is another problem when other laser treatments are used. Anyone can get better-looking skin with this treatment.
Lumecca for Brighter, More Even Skin
Lumecca is a safe and convenient alternative for people who want to improve their complexion with minimal discomfort and hardly any downtime. It can treat many different skin conditions, including redness, freckles, and age spots that can cause your skin to look older than it actually is.
