Lumecca Uses the Power of Light for Skin Rejuvenation
Lumecca by InMode is a skin rejuvenation therapy that uses IPL (intense pulsed light) to treat a number of skin conditions. Through photothermolysis, a technique used to target specific areas of tissue, Lumecca revitalizes the skin’s surface. This treatment is non-surgical, uses the most powerful IPL, and has been proven more effective than other devices of its nature.
What areas can be treated by Lumecca?
While Lumecca can be used to treat all areas of the body, it is most commonly used for areas that are consistently exposed to the sun, including the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms, and legs.
What skin conditions does Lumecca treat?
Lumecca improves the skin’s complexion by treating the following:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Acne scarring
- Vascular lesions (such as spider veins and birthmarks)
How quickly does this treatment work?
Lumecca improves skin complexion and reduces irregularities after just one session. Skin will continue to show improvements after one to two weeks. Multiple sessions, every three to four weeks, provide the best results. Treatment needs are dependent on the patient’s skin type, the severity of skin damage, and the energy settings.
How long do results last with Lumecca?
The results of Lumecca IPL treatment can last from six months to a year. It is recommended to schedule maintenance treatment sessions every month or so.
What can patients expect during Lumecca treatment?
During a Lumecca treatment session, patients will experience a flash of light that is emitted from the handheld Lumecca treatment tool. The resulting sensation has been described as a gentle snap of a rubber band on the treatment site.
What should patients do before and after Lumecca treatment?
Patients should avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning the month before treatment. This includes self-tanning lotions and sprays.
After treatment, patients will need little to no downtime. Some patients may experience minor redness, warmth, and/or itching that should subside within a few hours. Cooling aloe vera gel and cold compresses can ease these side effects. Another reaction from this treatment includes darkening of the treatment area, which fades and heals within a few days. Patients should avoid direct sun, and heated activities such as saunas, hot massages, and hot yoga.
