Frequently Asked Questions
BEFORE THE TREATMENT
Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) laser on the market to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. It is often referred to as a Photofacial. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. It is the treatment of choice for treating red/brown spots and sun damage. Since the IPL is attracted to color, it will help get rid of freckles, age spots, Rosacea and facial veins. Harvard recently did a study over 10 years that shows how an IPL slows down the aging process inside the cells, thus slowing down the overall aging of your skin!
A Lumecca IPL can be performed any time of the year. However, his laser seeks color therefore clients should avoid having a tan (real of fake) 3 weeks prior to the treatment.
Studies indicate that IPLs affect the DNA inside the cell, literally decreasing the aging process.

AFTER THE TREATMENT
Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; 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.
Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as facial telangiectasias, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
Anticipate a social “downtime” up to 2-5 days before any redness, swelling and sloughing of the sunspots has subsided. You may have a mild sunburn (burning) sensation following the treatment that is usually gone within a few hours.
Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
