The Lumecca system, which is also commonly referred to as Vanish Light, uses focused intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigments in the skin. Unlike other treatment modalities, Lumecca has customizable settings that allow users to optimize for fair and dark skin patients. Lumecca particularly benefits Asian patients and patients who have dark and red pigments on their face. Patients who incorporate Lumecca into their skin regimen can look forward to keeping their skin optimized and clear.
How Lumecca Works
Lumecca works by heating the deep layer of skin known as the dermis. As heat is gently delivered, skin pigments are pulled to the superficial layer of the skin. They become darker and over the course of one to two days absorb into the skin or peel off. Additionally, Lumecca stimulates the breakdown and reformation of collagen near skin pores. Shortly after a Lumecca treatment, patients will notice that their pores look great.
A Lumecca treatment is very safe and easy. A topical anesthetic is applied patients’ skin so they feel no pain or discomfort throughout the treatment. A small IPL delivering wand delivers heat as it is gently passed over the skin. The entire procedure usually takes about twenty minutes. A series of treatments can be given to maximize results.
Results and Recovery
Lumecca improves skin complexion and clarity. It is especially effective when it is used in the following areas:
The appearance of age spots, sun damage, vascular lesions, rosacea, freckles, and enlarged pores can all be improved when they are treated using Lumecca. One of the things that makes Lumecca such a popular treatment options is there is no recovery associated with treatment. Swelling and redness may present, but can easily be controlled using ice and rest.
