IPL Laser 

Lumecca is a very powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) that treats pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, you will notice significant improvement in the complexion and clarity of your skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which delivers a comfortable and effective light treatment.


"A balanced skin tone is a clear indicator of vibrant and youthful skin. As individuals age, concerns about both hypo- and hyperpigmentation arise. Energy-based treatments, such as Lumecca, stand out as highly effective in restoring a harmonious and even skin tone."

Benefits of Lumecca

  • Reduces the appearance of "age spots"

  • Diminishes vascular blemishes 

  • Treats Rosacea

  • Lighten Freckles

  • Reverse the effects of sun damage

What to expect after a treatment? 

Typically, after the treatment, it is normal to experience redness and a mild warming sensation on the skin, which usually diminish within an hour. In the subsequent one to two days, you may observe a darkening of pigmented spots. Over the following weeks, these pigmented lesions will gradually fade, leading to a more uniform skin tone. When addressing vascular lesions, you may observe the vein blanch or a temporary color change in the vessel, which tends to dissipate

within a few days.

Positive changes in skin appearance can often be noticed after the initial session, and undergoing multiple sessions tends to yield even more improved results.

It's important to note that individual outcomes may vary, and certain contraindications may apply. 

Schedule of Treatments

IPL Lumecca typically involves 2-5 treatments spaced every 3-4 weeks. It's worth noting that pigmented lesions often necessitate fewer sessions compared to vascular lesions (such as broken capillaries and rosacea).

Before & After

Before Your Appointment

  • Refrain from using irritant topical agents, acne treatments (use only as a spot treatment), retinoids, bleaching/brightening ointments, serums, and acids (e.g., vitamin A, vitamin C, hyaluronic, lactic, salicylic, alpha-hydroxy, glycolic acids) for 10-14 days before the treatment.

  • Laser hair removal, waxing/sugaring, and hair removal creams should be avoided 14 days prior to and after the treatment.

  • Check for the presence of a cosmetic tattoo in the treatment area. If present, ensure treatment is at least 2 fingerbreadths away from the tattoo.

  • Shave the area clean 24 hours before the treatment.

  • For IPL treatments targeting rosacea/capillaries, expect side effects such as bruising, swelling, and moderate redness. To minimize the risk of bruising, avoid blood thinners, alcohol, and aspirin 3-5 days before the treatment. Arnica supplements can be taken 3-5 days before the procedure."

After Care Instructions

  • Mild swelling (edema) and redness (erythema) in the treated area may occur post-treatment.

  • Use cold gel packs, cool gel, or cool air to soothe the skin as needed.

  • During the first 24-72 hours, apply pure hydrocortisone 1% mixed with clear aloe vera gel 2-3 times a day.

  • Frequently apply healing/recovery serums to establish a protective skin barrier and maintain moisture.

  • Expect a subtle darkening (bronzing) of the skin 3-14 days after treatment, which typically resolves on its own.

  • Apply moisturizer and makeup after each treatment if the skin is intact, without redness or irregular reactions.

  • For Rosacea/Capillaries treatment, use Arnica gel on bruises and ice the areas for the initial 24-48 hours.

  • For those prone to breakouts or with sebaceous skin, consider waiting 24 hours before applying any topical products.

  • Minimize sun exposure between treatments, and if unavoidable, use SPF 30+ to protect treated areas exposed to sunlight.
