Lumecca™IPL

What is Lumecca™?

Lumecca™ is the most powerful intended pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca™ operated using photo-thermolysis through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. Dr. Jack offers Lumecca™ treatments for a variety of vascular and pigmented lesions as well as general skin rejuvenation at his clinic at 40 Harley Street in London.

What are the benefits?

In just 1-3 sessions, Lumecca™ improves the appearance of

  • Age Spots (red/brown pigmentation)
  • Sun Damage
  • Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangectasias)
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles

What areas can be treated?

Lumecca™ can be used on all areas of the body, the most commonly treated areas being those most frequently exposed to the sun, i.e. the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.

What steps must be taken before the procedure?

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.

What should I expect during and after Lumecca™ treatment?

During the Lumecca™ treatment, there will be bright flashes of light from the Lumecca™ hand piece that feels like a light elastic sensation.  Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subside within an hour.  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 colour change in the vessel, which dissipates after a few days.

How many sessions are required?

An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session and multiple sessions provide even better results.  Treatment regimes depend on the severity of skin damage, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.

How quickly will I see results?

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 the most visible results after 1-2 weeks.  Having multiple photo facial sessions will improve the final results.  For vascular treatments such as spider or leg veins, results can be seen immediately and 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 find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment.  It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning for a few weeks post treatment.

Can all skin types benefit from Lumecca™ treatments?

Lumecca™ has been FDA approved to treat Fitzpatrick Skin types I-IV.
