How Should I Prepare for My Lumecca IPL Treatment?

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.

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 so avoid direct sunlight and tanning.

What Should I Expect During and After Lumecca?

During treatment there will be a bright flash of light that feels like an elastic band snapping. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots. In the week afterward the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to evening of your skin tone.

If treating vascular lesions, you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.

How Many Sessions Are Required?

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

How Quickly Will I See 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 vibrant 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 in up to 2 weeks.
