Lumecca IPL by InMode is a safe, non-surgical treatment using the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) device to treat common skin blemishes and irregularities.
By selectively targeting affected areas, the Lumecca IPL system can treat skin pigmentation, vascular lesions, skin texture irregularities, and sun damage.
After a consultation and assessment, our amazing therapist will apply an ultrasound gel to the area being treated. The eyes will be protected with goggles and the hand piece will be applied to the skin surface to deliver the pulses of light. During the Lumecca™ treatment, there will be bright flashes of light from the Lumecca™ hand piece . Usually the treatment lasts for around 5-10 minutes and the skin will feel slightly red afterwards.
At your first appointment, our therapist will assess your skin and talk through your specific requirements. she will create a bespoke treatment plan to suit you, depending on the severity of skin damage and type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) required. Usually between 1 and 3 sessions will be required depending on the severity of the sun damage present.
Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen within a few days of the first session. The skin will continue to look clearer over time with the most visible results after one to two weeks.
Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final results. For vascular treatments such as thread veins, results can often be seen immediately with optimum results visible within 2 weeks.
You may see a darkening of pigmented spots over the first 24-48 hours following your treatment. Over the course of the week the treated pigmentation will flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone.
After treatment for vascular lesions such as thread veins you may see the vein blanch and disappear, or a colour change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.
