Sun exposure, age, and other factors can damage the skin and cause discolouration, pigmentation irregularities, vascular skin lesions, and other skin concerns. If you would like to achieve glowing, radiant skin texture and an even, regular tone, you might have tried chemical peels or a variety of other options. Lumecca IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments stand apart from other similar treatments. They are the most powerful intense pulsed light treatments available, and provide effective, outstanding results.
Lumecca distinguishes itself from other treatments and IPL treatments because it attracts pigment much more effectively but requires less energy. What that means is less discomfort and downtime, and a lower risk of possible damage to the skin.
Lumecca treatments are faster than other IPL devices, requiring only two treatments instead of the typical five or six.
And the results last longer, meaning you can enjoy your smooth, clear, refreshed skin longer term.

The skin is left smooth, the texture evened out, acne is reduced, and rosacea and other irregularities are resolved.
We will start by applying a cold gel to your face and providing you with protective eyewear. We will pass the Lumecca handheld device over your skin, which applies wavelengths of IPL into the deeper layers of your skin.

Most patients do not find the treatment to be painful, and describe the light flashes as feeling like a tiny rubber band snap on the skin. Treatment time is about 20 minutes.
Lumecca IPL provides a number of benefits for patients with pigmentation concerns, including:
