WHAT IS LUMECCA?
Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of comfortable light treatment.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
- =Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
- =Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma
- =Rosacea (redness)
- =Sun damage(improves age related facial volume loss)
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.
WHAT STEPS MUST BE TAKEN BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?
Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month before treatment.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING AND AFTER LUMECCA?
During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from Lumecca and a sensation on your skin that feels like a light snap from an elastic band. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subside 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.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED?
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first 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.
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, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
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 treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.

What They Say
It’s been almost 4 months and my skin has never looked so good. It truly brings me joy to show friends and family my before and after pictures. They are speechless. Thank you Kim and thank you ZO Skin. I am a customer for life!
For the first time in the last 7 years I’ve been getting Botox has someone taken the time to explain to me why drooping happens and how to prevent it. She took her time and made sure everything was thoroughly explained. She clearly knows her stuff!
