WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:
- Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
- Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) andpoikiloderma

- Sun damage
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. This often includes the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands and arms.
