Say goodbye to imperfections and hello to a luminous complexion as Lumecca not only corrects but also stimulates collagen production, unveiling a youthful radiance that lasts.
How Lumecca (IPL) works:
Lumecca IPL operates on the principle of harnessing intense pulsed light to selectively target and treat specific skin concerns. During the procedure at The Face & Body Clinic, the Lumecca device emits flashes of broad-spectrum light, which penetrate the skin and are absorbed by chromophores such as melanin and haemoglobin. The wavelengths of light are carefully calibrated to match the absorption peaks of these chromophores, ensuring that the energy is primarily absorbed by the targeted structures. This selective absorption leads to a controlled rise in temperature within the pigmented cells or blood vessels, ultimately causing them to break down or coagulate.
As the targeted cells are disrupted, the body’s natural healing processes are triggered. For instance, in the case of pigmented lesions, the breakdown of melanin leads to a gradual fading of the unwanted discoloration. Simultaneously, the thermal effect stimulates the production of collagen, a vital protein responsible for skin elasticity and firmness. This collagen induction contributes to overall skin rejuvenation, enhancing texture and tone. The non-invasive nature of Lumecca IPL and its ability to address a wide range of skin issues make it a popular choice for those seeking effective and efficient skin revitalization.
Ideal Number of Sessions
Benefits of using Lumecca (IPL):
Skin Rejuvenation: Lumecca stimulates the production of collagen, a crucial protein for skin elasticity and firmness. This leads to overall skin rejuvenation, improving texture, reducing fine lines, and promoting a more youthful appearance.
Hyperpigmentation Correction: The targeted light energy addresses pigmented lesions such as sunspots, age spots, and freckles. Lumecca’s selective approach breaks down excess melanin, reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and promoting a more even skin tone.
Vascular Lesion Treatment: Lumecca effectively addresses vascular irregularities like spider veins and redness by targeting haemoglobin in blood vessels. The treatment coagulates the blood vessels, leading to their gradual elimination and an improved complexion.
Sun Damage Repair: For individuals with sun-damaged skin, Lumecca helps in mitigating the effects of prolonged sun exposure. It targets sunspots and other signs of sun damage, contributing to a more youthful and healthier skin appearance.
Quick and Non-Invasive: Lumecca treatments are typically quick, lasting only about 20-30 minutes per session. The non-invasive nature of the procedure means there are no incisions or injections, allowing patients to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.
Versatility: Lumecca’s versatility makes it suitable for treating a variety of skin concerns, including pigmentation issues, vascular lesions, and overall skin tone improvement. This adaptability makes it a comprehensive solution for individuals with diverse aesthetic goals.
Lumecca (IPL) is used to treat:
- Age spots (red/brown pigmentation)

Q: Is Lumecca a painful procedure?
A: While individual pain tolerance may vary, most people describe Lumecca as tolerable and relatively comfortable. The sensation is often likened to a mild snapping or warming feeling on the skin.
Q: How long does a Lumecca treatment session take?
A: Lumecca treatments are typically quick and can be completed in about 15-30 minutes per session, depending on the size of the treated area and the specific concerns being addressed.
Q: How many sessions are typically needed?
A: After the first session, you should see visible improvements in your skin condition. The outcomes of the treatment are designed to keep on improving as you go through more sessions. We’ll customise a treatment plan for you based on your skin types, cosmetic issues, and goals for the treatment. After several sessions, you should have the final result of the treatment, which is younger and brighter-looking skin.
Q: Is there any downtime after a Lumecca treatment? A: Immediately after treatment the area reddens and may feel like a sunburn for 2-12 hours and some swelling of the pigmented lesions may be seen. If large areas or many spots are being treated, significant swelling can occur. By day two, the pigment starts to darken, and over the next few days and weeks crusts over and falls away. This will take 5 – 7 days on the face and 10 – 20 days on the body.
Q: When will I see results?
A: Some individuals may notice improvements in their skin’s appearance after the first session, but optimal results are usually achieved with a full series of treatments. Results continue to develop in the weeks following each session.
Q: Is Lumecca suitable for all skin types?
A: Lumecca is designed to be safe and effective for a variety of skin types, however, a consultation is required to assess individual suitability.
Q: Are maintenance sessions required?
