What is Lumecca treatment?

Lumecca treatment uses intense pulsed light to accurately and safely remove skin pigments. By absorbing the light emitted from this device the pigments are destroyed. From age spots to varicose veins, this potent anti-ageing treatment delivers fast, effective results, visible after just one or two sessions. With little to no pain and in a short time, you can say goodbye to unwelcome pigmentation and hello to healthy-looking clear skin.     

How does Lumecca treatment work?

Lumecca is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure for a clear, blemish-free complexion. This nifty handheld device uses light energy and heat to penetrate the skin. Through a process called photo-thermolysis, the targeted area receives specific wavelengths of light. The light interacts with the pigments in the skin, absorbing and ultimately destroying them. During the sessions, you can experience a light elastic sensation and slight warmness in the treated area. The skin in this region may darken after the treatment but will flake and eventually disappear within 24 to 48 hours, revealing clear, even-toned skin.  

What are the benefits of Lumecca treatment?

Lumecca is safe to use on any part of the body and all skin types. It accurately and effectively targets the problem, causing no damage to surrounding cells and tissues. It is highly effective, destroying pigment from the first session without the pain and discomfort of surgery. This IPL treatment successfully treats age spots, sun damage, vascular, freckles, acne scarring, melasma, and much more.
