Palos Verdes is excited to offer Lumecca, the new and powerful non-invasive way to improve skin complexion and reduce skin irregularities! Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. Patients will notice improvements in the clarity of the skin after only one session. Lumecca uses photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial from a comfortable light treatment.
Features & Benefits
Lumecca improves the appearance of:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Vascular lesions like spider veins and port wine stains
What areas can be treated?
Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun like the face, neck, hands, arms, legs, and décolletage.
What should I expect during and after the treatment?
During treatment you’ll experience a bright flash of light that feels like a slight elastic sensation. Directly after the procedure, redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; then in the week afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
How quickly will I see results?
Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen only a few days after the first treatment session. Over time, the skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant. Multiple sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as spider or leg veins, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
Are there any Side Effects?
Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may notice they are sensitive to sunlight right after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
