Let’s get into it!


What Exactly is Lumecca IPL?

Lumecca is a powerful, intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment designed to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. The treatment can help transform your complexion and improve skin clarity. During the treatment, IPL releases light of scattered wavelengths that penetrate deep into the second layer of your skin. Lumecca uses photo-thermolysis, a comfortable light treatment that acts as a photo-facial. This light interacts with pigment cells, which absorb and convert it into heat. As a result, undesirable pigmentation, broken blood vessels, redness, freckles, birthmarks, acne scars, or other unwanted skin discolorations are effectively diminished, clearing up your skin.

What is the Science Behind the Lumecca IPL?

Wondering exactly how Lumecca IPL works? We’re here to help answer that question! Lumecca IPL by InMode uses the cutting-edge Lumecca device. Precise amounts of intense pulsed light (IPL) are emitted to target signs of aging, sun-damaged skin, acne scars, telangiectasia, rosacea, and other skin issues. These IPL rays are focused precisely on the area requiring treatment.

The Lumecca handpiece emits intense pulses of light, penetrating the skin's superficial layers to reach deeper tissues, where the damage resides. This light is absorbed by the damaged areas, heating tissues beneath the skin's surface. This process stimulates collagen production, a crucial component for maintaining youthful skin. Collagen and elastin enhance skin elasticity and firmness. Our body's ability to produce collagen diminishes as we age, and external factors like sun exposure, pollutants, and chemicals exacerbate aging. Lumecca's intense pulsed light increases collagen levels in the skin, rejuvenating the skin's network of connective tissues in the deeper layers. This, in turn, improves skin firmness and elasticity, addressing wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, age spots, and other signs of aging.

Additionally, the heating of tissues by the laser rays stimulates the formation of new blood vessels in the treated area. This enhances blood flow, ensuring an ample supply of oxygen and vital nutrients for repairing skin damage caused by UV radiation, pollutants, rosacea, and cellulite. Doesn't it sound absolutely amazing? Allow us to explain why patients choose the Lumecca IPL treatment at MD Skin Lab.

Why Do Patients Get the Lumecca IPL Treatment?

At MD Skin Lab, we recommend the Lumecca IPL treatment for individuals seeking to improve their skin's appearance. It is suitable for those who want to reduce aged spots and sun damage, minimize acne scars and discoloration, eliminate freckles and birthmarks, and address red and brown spots. This treatment is specifically for patients with Fitzpatrick skin types 1-3.

We recommend using the Lumecca IPL treatment across various areas where you experience the above issues. This can include the face, neck, chest, back, hands and arms. Lumecca's versatility and precision make it an excellent choice for addressing a range of skin concerns in multiple areas of your body.

What Should I Know Before Getting The Lumecca IPL Treatment?

We typically advise undergoing at least three sessions to achieve the best possible results. However, individual skin responses vary. During your treatment, our laser technician will thoroughly evaluate your skin condition and provide a personalized treatment plan to align with your unique skin goals and requirements.

Following a Lumecca IPL treatment, you may experience sensations like mild irritation in the treated area, typically subsiding within one to two days. Aside from this, there is minimal social downtime associated with the procedure. The pigmented spots targeted during treatment may temporarily darken (easily concealable with makeup), shedding within an average of 7-14 days post-treatment. You may also notice some redness in the treated area or around pigmented spots.

We strongly advise against sun exposure in the affected area for at least 48 hours after treatment and recommend avoiding tanning the area and using tanning sprays before and after the procedure. It's important to note that we cannot perform this treatment if you have existing sun exposure or a sun tan, as it can lead to undesirable pigment-related complications.
