What is Lumecca?
Lumecca is the most advanced intense pulsed light (IPL) system. It uses a powerful light to penetrate below the surface of the skin to eliminate brown spots and broken capillaries that make skin appear older and damaged. Lumecca also reduces the appearance of pores and makes the skin look brighter and clearer.
How Does It Work?
Lumecca is a high powered light source that is fine tuned to treat brown pigment spots, facial redness and broken capillaries. The light passes through the upper layers of the skin and is absorbed by unwanted pigment and damaged blood vessels. The upper layers of the skin are not injured by the light.
How will I Look Afterward?
Your brown spots may darken slightly afterwards and like flakes of pepper. Most patients experience no downtime from work or social activities. Make-up can be worn afterward. The treated pigment will gradually flake off leaving skin smooth and even.
Is Lumecca Painful?

How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Lumecca is more powerful than most older IPL Devices. A majority of patients require between 1-3 treatments with an average of 2.
