Lumecca

Lumecca by InMode is a non-invasive or minimally invasive intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment to target various skin concerns, including sun damage, age spots, freckles, vascular lesions, and redness caused by rosacea.

How does it work?

Lumecca uses a powerful IPL technology that delivers intense light pulses over a spectrum of wavelengths. This allows for targeted treatment of different skin conditions.

How Is Lumecca Performed?

The device is adjusted according to the specific skin condition and type. The handpiece emits pulses of light that are absorbed by the target areas. Patients may feel a slight snapping sensation like a rubber band hit against the skin, which is generally well-tolerated.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many patients notice improvements in their skin clarity and texture within a few days after the first treatment. However, the final results typically become more apparent after a few weeks and may require multiple sessions.
The treatment is generally well-tolerated. Patients often describe the sensation as a light snap from a rubber band against the skin during the pulses.
While some improvement may be visible after just one session, typically, 1 to 3 sessions are recommended, depending on the severity of the skin issues and the desired outcomes.
There is minimal to no downtime. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately, though there may be slight redness or warming of the skin that subsides within a few hours.
Lumecca is suitable for individuals looking to improve the appearance of sun damage, age spots, and vascular blemishes. A consultation with a skincare professional can determine if Lumecca is right for you based on your skin type and concerns.
Lumecca can be used on most skin types; however, it is most effective on lighter to medium skin tones. People with very dark skin may need to discuss alternative treatments with their dermatologist due to the higher absorption of light, which can cause adverse effects.

What is Lumecca by InMode?

Lumecca by InMode is a non-invasive or minimally invasive intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment for skin rejuvenation and pigmentation correction. It is a type of IPL photofacial that uses high-intensity pulses of broad-spectrum light to target various skin concerns, including sun damage, age spots, freckles, vascular lesions, and redness caused by rosacea.

What are the benefits?

Lumecca IPL can reduce vascular lesions, including port wine stains, facial, truncal and leg telangiectasias, rosacea, erythema of rosacea, angiomas and spider angiomas, poikiloderma of Civatte, superficial leg veins and venous malformations. Use the power of Lumecca IPL to effectively treat benign pigmented epidermal lesions, including dyschromia, hyperpigmentation, and freckles.

In just 1-3 sessions, Lumecca improves the appearance of:
• Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
• Sun damage
• Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasias)
• Rosacea (redness)
• Freckles

How is the treatment performed?

During the Lumecca treatment, the healthcare professional uses a handheld device to deliver a series of intense pulsed light (IPL) pulses to the treatment area. The broad-spectrum light is absorbed by pigmented lesions, blood vessels, and other targeted areas, causing them to heat up and break down. This process stimulates the body's natural healing response and promotes the gradual fading of pigmentation and redness over time.

The duration of a Lumecca treatment session may vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated, but it typically ranges from 15 to 30 minutes.

What To Expect After The Treatment?

After the Lumecca treatment, the patient may experience mild redness and swelling, which usually subsides within a few hours to a few days. It's important to follow any post-treatment care instructions the healthcare professional provides, including avoiding excessive sun exposure, using sunscreen, and avoiding irritating skincare products.

How Many Sessions Is Needed For An Optimal Result?

An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session and multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime’s depend on the severity of skin damage, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.

For optimal results, a series of Lumecca treatments is recommended, typically spaced a few weeks apart, depending on the patient's individual skin condition and treatment goals.

How quickly will I see the results?

Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as spider or leg veins, results can be seen immediately in up to 2 weeks.

Are there any side effects?

Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.

Before your Lumecca treatment

Avoid sun exposure: Refrain from direct sun exposure or tanning beds for at least two weeks prior to the treatment. Sunburned or tanned skin is more prone to complications and may affect the effectiveness of the treatment.

Avoid certain medications: Some medications, such as blood thinners or photosensitizing drugs, may increase the risk of adverse reactions or complications. Consult with your healthcare provider about discontinuing these medications before the procedure.

Shave treatment area: If possible, shave the treatment area the day before the procedure to ensure optimal results. However, avoid waxing, plucking, or using depilatory creams, as these methods can irritate the skin.

Cleanse the skin: Cleanse the treatment area thoroughly on the day of the procedure to remove any makeup, lotions, or skincare products. Clean, dry skin allows for better penetration of the laser energy.

after your Lumecca treatment

Protect the treated area: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to the treated area daily, especially if going outdoors. Sun protection helps prevent post-treatment complications and maintains the results.

Avoid sun exposure: Minimize sun exposure and wear protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses when outdoors. Sun exposure can increase the risk of pigmentation changes or other complications.

Moisturize the skin: Keep the treated area moisturized with gentle, non-irritating skincare products to promote healing and prevent dryness or irritation.

Avoid harsh skincare products: Refrain from using harsh skincare products, such as exfoliants or retinoids, until the treated area has fully healed. These products can exacerbate irritation or sensitivity.

Avoid picking or scratching: Resist the urge to pick, scratch, or rub the treated area, as this can disrupt the healing process and increase the risk of scarring or infection.

It's important to note that the specific results and benefits of the treatment may vary depending on the individual's skin condition, treatment plan, and other factors. It's essential to consult with our specialists to determine if the treatment is suitable for your specific needs and expectations.
