LUMECCA uses the most powerful Intense Pulsed Light ("IPL") to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one session, patients notice marked improvements in skin tone and clarity. The Lumecca works through photothermolysis, which deploys optical energy to provide a photofacial treatment in total comfort.

What are the advantages ?

In just one to three sessions, LUMECCA reduces:
• age spots (brown or reddish pigmentation);
• vascular lesions of the face, such as spider veins and poikiloderma;
• rosacea (redness);
• freckles;
• the harmful effects of the sun.

What should I expect during and after the LUMECCA treatment?

During the treatment, the LUMECCA will emit a flash of bright light and you will feel a pinch similar to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. It is normal for the skin to be red and a little warm after the treatment. These reactions usually disappear within an hour. Over the next 24 to 48 hours, the pigment spots will become darker. The following week, the lesions will desquamate (peel) and your skin will regain an even color. After treatment of vascular lesions, the vein may turn white, disappear, or change color. These effects will dissipate within a few days.


Varies depending on the area treated


Depending on your skin type and goals



The results

You will notice a reduction in sun spots and an improvement in your complexion a few days after the first session. Skin will look increasingly youthful and radiant over time, and results will be best after a week or two. Multiple photofacial treatment sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments, such as facial telangiectasia, optimal results could take up to two weeks.

Number of sessions

You will notice an improvement in the appearance of your skin after the first session. Multiple sessions will further accentuate the results. The treatment regimen depends on the severity of the lesions, skin type, type of treatment (vascular or pigmentary lesions) and energy parameters.

The cost of the treatment/cure varies depending on the extent of the treatment. An assessment is made and a treatment plan is established.

We avoid the use of these technologies on tanned skin. Avoid sun exposure before and after treatment.

The skin reactions usually disappear within a few hours. Skin may be sensitive to light immediately after treatment. Better to avoid sun exposure and tanning.
