WHAT IS LUMECCA?
Lumecca offered by Dr. Hatfield is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one session, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photo thermolysis, which provides a photo facial through the delivery of comfortable light treatment.
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
- Rosacea (redness)
- 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.
THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION TO REJUVENATE YOUR SKIN
“I would definitely recommend Lumecca. I like how it brightened my face and gave me a beautiful “glow. I can really see a difference.”
– PAMELA, PATIENT
WHAT STEPS MUST BE TAKEN BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
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 the most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as facial telangiectasias, results can be seen in up to2 weeks.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER LUMECCA?
During 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 usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterward, the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions, you may see the vein blanch and disappear, or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
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 the treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
An improved skin appearance can be noted after your first IPL session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. The treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage), and energy settings. Our team will let you know how many treatments you are likely to need when you come in for your IPL consultation in Edmonton.
HOW MUCH WILL MY IPL TREATMENT COST?
The cost of your IPL treatment in Edmonton will depend on the number of treatments needed, the size of the area being treated, and other considerations. When you come in for your consultation, our team can go over pricing and payment options.
