Lumecca is an intense pulse light (IPL) that delivers up to 3 times the energy in the 500-600 nm range. IPL is described as technology that cosmetic and medical care providers use to perform a variety of skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic reasons. It is optimized for clinicians to treat many different skin types and conditions, with results that can be seen after just one session. The treatment aims to help patients achieve clear, beautiful skin in as little time as possible. It involves a less invasive (aka non-ablative) laser that has been carefully adjusted to look for specific pigments in the skin, like redness, darker and discolored patches, or dark spots from acne scarring.
This intense pulsed light system releases highly controlled light energy into areas of skin imperfection. When the pulses of light are applied to the skin, some patients report feeling some stinging, similar to a small rubber band being snapped against the skin. Therefore, we recommend using an anesthetic cream on the area 30-60 minutes before the procedure. We recommend our patients undergo four to six treatment sessions to achieve the best long-term results.
