WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO REVERSE A SUMMER’S WORTH OF SUN DAMAGE TO THE SKIN? MEET LUMECCA IPL
At ReNu Med Lounge, we offer a variety of treatments to repair the skin, especially after a long summer of sun exposure. Lumecca IPL is one of our favorite treatments because of its uniquely effective power to target red (Rosacea and telangiectasias/hemangiomas) and brown color found in sun spots and hyperpigmentation. These pigments absorb the light and are destroyed, often in one session.
WHAT IS LUMECCA IPL?
Lumecca is the most powerful and safe intense pulsed light (IPL) designed to treat and clarify the skin, and undo harm caused by years of sun exposure. Made by InMode Aesthetics, It’s the perfect treatment to start in the Fall and Winter seasons to restore your skin and reverse pigmentation.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH LUMECCA IPL?
Areas of the body that are most exposed to the sun are typically the best for treatment. The most common areas patients seek skin rejuvenation and restoration are the face, neckline, chest, arms, hands and legs.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LUMECCA IPL?
The many benefits of Lumecca IPL are:
- Improves skin complexion
- Reduces skin irregularities
- Helps patients look years younger
- Eliminates age spots & pigmentation
- Reverses sun damage
- Reduces vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasias), rosacea (redness) & freckles
DOES LUMECCA IPL HURT? WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
Because of a highly effective cooling mechanism on the treatment tip that reduces the sensation of the heat during pulses, there is no discomfort experienced by patients during treatments, for the most part.
The treatment itself can be done within 10 minutes. This incredible technology allows us to cover large areas effectively and quickly with great precision.
There are typically no side effects from Lumecca treatments, but there is always a chance of mild skin reactions during any laser treatment that resolve themselves shortly. Some patients can be sensitive to sunlight on the day of the treatment, so we recommend avoiding the sun (and definitely avoid tanning) during this downtime.
HOW MUCH DOWNTIME IS THERE AFTER A LUMECCA IPL TREATMENT?
Depending on your level of sensitivity, your skin may appear red after the treatment and will fade within an hour.
It’s important to note that the dark spots treated may appear darker on the skin after treatment. This is the desired outcome and only means Lumecca was successful! After about a week or two, these dark spots will flake off. Until then, it’s okay to apply makeup on the treated areas for an even appearance.
The end result is a clear, even and smooth skin tone!
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED TO SEE RESULTS?
Treatment results vary by each patient and the extent and type of damage caused. When treating sun-damaged skin, patients can often see improvement in the clarity of the skin with a single treatment with Lumecca, whereas it typically takes 4-6 treatments with other IPL technologies to see a difference.
At ReNu Med Lounge, we typically recommend 1-3 treatments but this number will vary case-by-case. When you come in for a consultation, we’ll assess your skin to determine if you’re a good candidate and if so, the extent of treatment necessary.
