The most powerful intense pulsed light to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. It is the ultimate solution to rejuvenate your skin. After one use, patients will notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Our IPL technology (Lumecca™) operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.
Common areas you can treat with Lumecca™ are usually areas exposed to the sunlight. It often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
During the treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca™ that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment, and subsides within an hour. Over the course of the next 24-48 hours after treatment you may see a darkening of pigmented spot.

During treatment there will be a bright flash of light that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, which leads to a more even skin tone. After treating vascular lesions you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a colour change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide best results. Treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.
Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as spider or leg veins, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
