Dr. Bryant offers a carefully selected range of nonsurgical facial treatments that are safe and effective, which is why Refine is proud to provide Lumecca IPL treatments. This revolutionary device may be your solution if your skin concerns include the visible signs of aging and pigmentation issues.

What is Lumecca IPL?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is also known as a photofacial. This cutting-edge treatment addresses irregular skin tone and texture without surgery, reversing some visible damage caused by sun exposure or photoaging. You may notice photoaging on your:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Hands
  • Chest

IPL uses light energy to target a specific pigment in your skin, heating and removing unwanted cells. Unlike lasers, an IPL device sends out more than one wavelength of pulsating light, simultaneously treating various skin conditions.

The Lumecca™ IPL therapy is especially powerful in reducing and removing:

  • Redness
  • Spider veins
  • Discolored patches.

This anti-aging treatment is popular because it is quick, with visible results after one to two sessions.

How does Lumecca IPL work?

The Lumecca™ IPL laser uses photo-thermolysis to target red and brown pigments in the skin, which absorb the light and are destroyed. Because Lumecca has a high specificity and selectivity for pigmentation and redness created by sun damage, it is one of the most potent treatments for this concern.

During your IPL session, we will apply an ultrasound gel to the treated area and protect your eyes with goggles. The Lumecca handpiece will be applied to the skin's surface to deliver bright flashes of light that feel like an elastic band against the skin's surface. Usually, the treatment lasts between five and ten minutes, and the skin will feel slightly sunburnt afterward.

What are the benefits of Lumecca IPL?

Lumecca™ can be used on nearly any body area, which is one of its most incredible benefits. The most commonly treated areas are those most frequently exposed to the sun, such as the:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Legs
  • Hands
  • Arms

Additionally, Lumecca is particularly successful in treating the following skin issues:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Vascular lesions such as spider veins, port wine stains, and leg telangiectasias
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles
  • Acne scarring
  • Melasma

Another benefit is that Lumecca™ is easily paired with other treatments to enhance the appearance and texture of your skin, giving you a luminous and youthful glow.

Lumecca IPL recovery and results Downtime is minimal following Lumecca™ treatments.

You may experience redness and a slight skin warming, like a sunburn, which will subside over the first few hours after your session. In the days following the treatment, you may experience some swelling. Brown pigment often gets darker before flaking off or being absorbed by the body.

For optimal recovery, keep the following recommendations in mind:

  • You may be sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment
  • Avoid direct sunlight and tanning for a few weeks post-treatment
  • For the first day following treatment, avoid skincare products

You should see sun damage and skin complexion improvements just a few days after your first session. Your skin will continue to look clearer over time, with the most visible results after one to two weeks. For vascular treatments such as thread veins, results may be seen immediately, with optimum results visible within two weeks. 

Having multiple photofacial sessions can improve your final results. While Lumecca results are long-lasting, you may need a maintenance session every six to twelve months.
