Frequently Asked Questions  |  Lumecca IPL

How does it work?

Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. During treatment, there is a bright flash of light from the device that feels like a light elastic sensation.

How long is each session?

Depends on areas being treated.

When 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 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 two weeks.

Redness and slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour. Over the 24-48 hours following treatment, clients may see a darkening of pigmented spots. In the week afterwards, the pigmented lesions flake off leading to an evening out of spin tone. After treating vascular lesions, clients may see the vein blanch and disappear or a colour change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.

Is this treatment safe?

This treatment is safe for all areas of the body. Most clients 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 after, and one month prior to treatment.

Does it hurt?

A slight discomfort is to be expected. Patients often describe it as an elastic band being snapped on the skin.

What kind of post-treatment care is required?

Avoid sun exposure for 48 hours.

Wear SPF 30+ daily.

No hot showers, hot tubs or steam rooms.

Avoid exercise for 24 hours post treatment.
