Anxiety, sleepless nights, heavy workload, the tensions of everyday life, and so many other internal or external factors have taken a toll on our skin. Some of us may have even experienced skin traumas that left us with dark patches and scars and other pigmentation problems on different parts of our bodies. And, as if all were not enough, there are aging and wrinkles and age spots. That’s why having glowing, healthy, and youthful skin has been a seemingly unattainable dream for many of us, but not anymore.
The good news is that recent technological advancements can help restore the youthfulness and radiance of our skin. Moreover, technologies such as Lumecca can effectively treat conditions that make the skin change color. In the previous posts, we talked about skin pigmentation, its contributing factors, where it can appear in the body, and what forms it can take. We also learned of other factors, such as aging and genetics, which can cause skin discoloration.
This article will answer some of the frequently asked questions about Lumecca, what it is, and the key benefits of this technology.
What is Lumecca?
Lumecca is believed to be the most powerful l IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser device, which is specifically effective in treating pigmented and vascular lesions. This type of treatment is also known as PhotoFacial.
This technology utilizes Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to target pigmented tissues deep below the skin surface accurately. The sessions are usually quick and take around 20 minutes, which is faster and more efficient than other conventional methods. In a few sessions, Lumecca will reduce skin discoloration and increase collagen and elastin levels, resulting in healthier and more youthful-looking skin.
Many patients have reported improved skin appearance after just a single treatment session.
Lumecca can be used as a treatment option for sun-damaged skin, freckles, age spots, facial veins, and more.
A study conducted by Harvard University indicates that IPL treatment slows down the aging process of the cells, which can result in an overall reduction of aging in the skin cells. Other studies also indicate that Lumecca IPL affects the DNA of the cell, which also helps to slow the aging process by reducing lines and wrinkles and decreasing pore size.
Lumecca IPL has been known to be used by celebrities to achieve the ultimate glowing skin a few days before their appearance on the red carpet or in interviews.
How does Lumecca work?
Lumecca IPL utilizes the Photothermolysis method, which incorporates wavelengths of light to heat skin cells and eradicate pigmentation while keeping other parts of the skin and surrounding tissues unharmed and safe. Lumecca technology uses energy in 500-600 nm length, three times more than the usual IPL devices, and can significantly improve skin conditions such as pigmentation and discoloration.
What parts of the body can Lumecca be used on?
Even though Lumecca is commonly used on the face, neck, chest, and hands, it is safe to benefit from this treatment on other body parts, such as the arms, legs, back, etc.
How Often Can I Have A Lumecca Treatment?
Lumecca treatment is very safe and has no side effects; every individual may require a different treatment, though. But generally, it is safe to have a treatment every 3-4 weeks.
There are several IPL treatment options out there; why Lumecca?
- The groundbreaking technology of Lumecca and the effectiveness of the treatment reduces the number of required sessions to 1-2 treatments compared to other IPL devices that usually require 6-8 treatments.
- Due to the high pulse repetition of the device, a larger area of the skin can be treated, which significantly reduces the treatment time in each session.
- There is no need for topical numbing as the tip of the device is made of sapphire, which has a strong cooling sensation.
- Lumecca treatment does not cause any inflammation or peeling; therefore, no recovery time is required.
- Lumecca has a fast pulse repetition rate in all settings. The highest peak power is 3300W.
Is Lumecca Considered an Effective treatment for Acne?
Lumecca technology can kill surface bacteria and reduce pore size, which can help reduce the trapping of oil on the skin, and eliminate acne formation.
Is There Any Age Limit for Receiving a Lumecca Treatment?
No. If you are under 18, you can have Lumecca treatment performed with the consent of your parent(s).
Is There Any Downtime After the Treatment?
Commonly, patients experience slight redness and warming of the skin after the treatment; however, it usually subsides within an hour or two. 24 to 48 hours following the treatment, pigmented spots may get darker, which is normal. Usually, after a week or two, the pigmented lesions will flake off. An even skin tone can be expected 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment.
