Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment (Lumecca) is a procedure for patients who want to improve their skin complexion, reduce skin irregularities and look years younger. A powerful technology, Lumecca provides a photo-facial that helps address age spots (red/brown pigmentation), sun damage, vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasias), rosacea (redness), and freckles.
Before Your IPL Treatment (Lumecca)
Once you’ve scheduled your IPL treatment (Lumecca) we will ask you to avoid extended sun exposure to prevent sunburn.
When you arrive, make sure your skin is free from:
- All lotions or cleansers
To help remove any remaining foreign substances from your skin, the technician will use a facial cleanser.
During Your IPL Treatment (Lumecca)
A handheld device is used to treat the specific areas discussed during your consultation.
Immediately following treatment, a technician will apply a soothing recovery cream. A post-procedure kit — including the recovery cream, an antioxidant sheet mask, thermal spring water, gentle cleanser, and mineral-based sun protection — will be sent home with you. The cream can be applied again that night and afterward, as needed.
The entire IPL treatment (Lumecca) can take as little as 15 minutes (for one small target area) to up to two hours (for larger areas).
After Your IPL Treatment (Lumecca)
Following your IPL treatment (Lumecca), you might notice minor redness and swelling. It typically subsides within a few days.
If you go out in the sun, make sure to wear sunblock. There’s no wait time to begin wearing moisturizer or makeup though.
You’ll start to see results within 1-2 weeks.
For the best results, we often recommend recurring sessions of IPL (Lumecca) treatment. Dr. Benaim and his team can work with you to determine a schedule.
