How Lumecca light treatment is perfect to repair and rejuvenate your sun damaged skin or your Rosacea

Published On: 17th May, 2022 | Category: Advice & Tips

Are you ready to spoil your skin after the long summer months enjoying lazy toasty days? Summer is great, but the season is rough on the skin, causing damage and increasing the formation of brown marks. Even high SPF sun protection has its limitations. But the good news is Autumn is here, and it is the season to rejuvenate your skin and restore its health. 

The best way to do this is through non-invasive light therapy that uses advanced technology to heal your skin from the inside out. This is where the game-changing Lumecca can help, and we are confident you will love the results!

It is one of the best

Lumecca is the answer to radiant, youthful and healthy skin. It is a high-end and non-surgical treatment used for a wide range of skin irregularities caused by sun damage, ageing and certain medical conditions. It is classified as a photofacial treatment and works by using a light energy source known as intense-pulsed light (IPL) to penetrate deep within the skin and target problem areas. This miracle device has one of the most potent IPL’s on the market, making it an effective option that delivers excellent results. 

Lumecca often gets confused with laser treatments, but unlike lasers, IPL technology uses more than one wavelength of pulsating light to deliver a more intense treatment. It penetrates more layers of the skin for better results especially when treating stubborn skin conditions. 

The benefits are extensive

Because it is so powerful, it can treat so many skin problems and achieve visible results almost immediately. Lumecca is the perfect treatment for:

  • Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
  • Sun damage
  • Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasias)
  • Rosacea (redness)
  • Freckles

You can expect to see results from the first treatment and you will immediately notice a significant improvement in your skin’s complexion and clarity. Other IPL options require at least four treatments to see results. Lumecca on the other hand, delivers quickly and is miles ahead of the competition.

The inner workings

Lumecca uses wavelengths of light to mildly heat the skin and penetrate deep within to treat your problem areas. This gets rid of unwanted cells, causes blood vessels to constrict, stimulates the skin to regenerate and boosts the production of collagen. All these factors help in the healing process and over time, your skin will enjoy a smoother tone, healthier complexion and less visible sun damage. 

The technology integrated in Lumecca is so advanced that it can be used in all areas of the body, especially the parts regularly exposed to the sun such as the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.

Gentle yet effective

If you’re not familiar with this type of treatment, it may sound painful or uncomfortable at first. But rest assured, Lumecca IPL is one of the most gentle yet effective procedures in aesthetics. 

Dr Raj, Medical Aesthetics Practitioner from Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic explains how it works:

“Before we start the treatment, I will discuss your requirements at your consultation to ensure it is tailored to you and your desired outcomes. This usually takes around 15 to 45 minutes. Once I understand you better, we can then proceed to the Lumecca treatment. This is a handheld device that will pass over the area you want to target. This may have a pinching or light elastic sensation as the bright flashes deliver intense light into the skin. After treatment, your skin will be slightly warm but this is normal and usually subsides within an hour. 

He adds: 

“And don’t be shocked when you see your brown spots and marks appear darker immediately after treatment and over the few days that follow. Interestingly, they come to the surface and look like coffee grains before falling straight off!”
