Skin Blemishes & Pigmentation
A blemish pertains to any area on the skin that has distinct discoloration compared to its neighbouring skin. Some examples of such blemishes include sunburn, freckles, tiny red spots or veins and other dark areas brought about by aging or trauma to the skin. Moreover, blemishes may denote an irregularity in complexion because of ailments like rosacea which also give rise to manifestations including facial broken vessels and reddening.
Lumecca IPL is an excellent solution for individuals battling skin imperfections such as age-related sun damage and persistent conditions like rosacea that require continuous attention. This treatment effectively targets blemishes and pigmentation issues.
To prepare for your treatment, it’s vital to steer clear of the sun for at least 14 days (about two weeks). Although this form of treatment is generally safe for your skin, failing to take precautionary measures against sunlight exposure before getting treated can result in melanin production. If you intend to spend time outside within two weeks before your scheduled appointment, use sunscreen with an SPF value no lower than 30 or even higher if your complexion is fair.
Throughout the course of your treatments, the Lumecca IPL device will be utilized to concentrate on regions where imperfections and pigmentation issues are present in your skin.
After your treatment, avoiding unprotected exposure to the sun is also important to prevent any pigmentation concerns. Although there is no formal recovery period associated with this treatment, you may need to follow a few aftercare instructions during the first few days after your treatment. Some of these instructions may include not using certain skincare products, keeping your skin moist, and drinking plenty of water.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Lumecca IPL Work?
Intense pulsed light therapy functions through specialized devices that produce specific wavelengths of energy to address pigmented skin cells present on the surface. These light wavelengths prompt quicker shedding of dead skin cells, resulting in a more balanced and uniform complexion. Additionally, they can fracture broken capillaries and decrease inflammation responsible for facial flushing.
How Soon Will You See the Results?
In just a matter of days, the first signs of your treatment’s effectiveness will likely become visible. You may notice that areas which were treated have turned slightly darker in colour; however, these spots will soon slough off naturally within the week. After this happens, you’ll observe an improvement in overall skin tone and brightness.
It is possible to observe that the vessel’s hue might turn darker or alter in the shade during the initial days post-treatment to heal fractured vessels. This outcome is not unusual since any red regions treated on your skin will eventually peel off and vanish like other skin parts.
Will Your Skin Texture Also Improve?
It’s worth noting that this procedure can enhance the skin’s texture, as specific light wavelengths have been found to promote collagen production. This helps to firm up enlarged pores, diminish fine lines and ultimately create a smoother appearance for the skin.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
To attain the best outcome, most individuals will need several sessions with this treatment. The number of treatments necessary depends on the state of your skin and beauty objectives. Generally, people can obtain their preferred outcomes within three appointments scheduled a month apart. However, if you are treating a long-standing skin condition such as rosacea, you may require additional visits to achieve optimal results.
How Can You Maintain Your Results?
To maintain your results from Lumecca IPL, it is essential to steer clear of subsequent hyperpigmentation. One efficient approach is to make sure that you apply SPF 30 or more every day consistently. Your outcomes will last if you can maintain healthy and uniformly toned skin. In case of a persistent dermatological problem, it would be beneficial if you could pinpoint any potential triggers, such as specific dietary items, climatic conditions or skincare formulations for your condition.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Most individuals are suitable for this treatment. You may be a perfect fit if you have skin that is not uniformly pigmented or minor to moderate blemishes related to pigments, like solar lentigines or rosacea.
To determine if you qualify for this treatment, you must attend a consultation where your skin type and condition will be evaluated. We might inquire about your current medications or supplements and the state of your skin. If you have taken Accutane within the past six months, you may not yet be eligible for this treatment option.
