Lumecca, an IPL treatment from InMode, represents a significant advancement in intense pulsed light (IPL) technology, as it can deliver up to three times more energy compared to traditional IPL devices in the 500-600nm range. This increased energy output allows for improved effectiveness in treating vascular and pigmented lesions. Lumecca has been optimised for clinicians, enabling us to treat a wider range of lesions in fewer sessions. Furthermore, it has been reported that patients have experienced significant improvement in skin health and clarity after just the one session.

The Treatment

It works by delivering intense pulses of light to the skin, which penetrate the tissue and are absorbed by the target chromophores, such as melanin or hemoglobin. This absorption converts the light energy into heat, which damages the targeted cells and triggers the body's natural healing response. Over time, this process leads to the removal of pigmented or vascular lesions and the stimulation of collagen production, resulting in improved skin texture and tone.

Key Benefits

  • Lumecca can improve skin health by targeting and eliminating damaged skin cells
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Improves skins clarity and radiance
  • It can effectively treat a wide range of skin tones

General Questions

How many treatments are required?

Although many patients see improvements in their skin after a single treatment, a series of treatments is usually recommended for optimal results. The number of treatments required varies depending on the severity of skin damage and targeted lesion, but we generally recommend at least two sessions. 

Maintenance sessions are required to upkeep results.

What skin concerns are best treated with Lumecca?

Lumecca is versatile and can target vascular and pigmented lesions on any part of the body. These include:

  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Age spots
  • Telangiectasias
  • Rosacea
  • Angiomas 
  • Poikiloderma
What areas can be treated with Lumecca?

Lumecca is primarily used to treat areas of the body that are frequently exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.

Are there any contraindications to receiving Lumecca?
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • Active skin infection, rash, or inflammation in the treatment area
  • Use of certain medications that may make the skin more sensitive to light
  • History of abnormal scarring or wound healing
  • History of skin cancer or pre-cancerous lesions in the treatment area
  • Darker skin types (Fitzpatrick skin types V-VI)
  • Recent sun exposure or use of tanning beds
  • Use of certain topical skin-care products, such as retinoids or hydroxy acids

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, and it is important to consult with one of our qualified dermal therapists to determine if Lumecca IPL is an appropriate treatment option for you.

How long does it take to see results?

Results from Lumecca IPL treatment can be seen within a few days. Pigmentary concerns typically show improvement in 1-2 weeks, while vascular concerns, like dilated capillaries, may take up to two weeks after the full treatment course.

How long will the results last?

The duration of the results from Lumecca IPL treatment can vary depending on a variety of factors, including the severity of the skin condition being treated, the number of treatments received, and the patient’s lifestyle and skin care regimen. In general, the results of Lumecca treatment can last several months to a year or longer. However, it is important to maintain a good skincare routine and avoid excessive sun exposure to help prolong the results. Regular touch-up treatments may also be recommended to maintain optimal results.

Am I a good candidate for Lumecca?

If you have pigmented or vascular lesions you wish to treat, Lumecca may be an ideal solution. However, prior to treatment, a test patch is necessary to ensure the best outcome. A consultation with one of our Aesthetiqué Medical practitioners can help determine whether Lumecca is the right treatment for you.

What can I expect during the treatment and how long does it take to complete?

Prior to the treatment, your Aesthetiqué Medical pracitioner will give you protective goggles. During the treatment, you will feel a warm sensation similar to a light snap of an elastic band. The duration of Lumecca treatments varies from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

What is the downtime?

The treatment has little down time however this will be determined by the density of the pigment or vessels. It is likely for you to experience redness, warmth, and a sunburn-like feeling which can last up to 24 hours. Also, micro-crusting post pigment treatment can last up to 1-2 weeks. Whilst you are going through the shedding process, it is important not to pick at the crusting or scratch the area and allow it to organically shed on its own. This will prevent potential scarring or hyperpigmentation.

What is the aftercare post Lumecca?

Aftercare for Lumecca treatment involves:

  • Avoiding direct sunlight and wearing sunscreen
  • Keeping the treated area clean and moisturised
  • Avoiding any harsh skincare products or treatments for a few days. 
  • Avoid picking scabs and allow them to fall off organically 

It is recommended to follow the specific aftercare instructions provided.
