What is Lumecca?
Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment on the market. which provides a photo facial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. The Intense Pulsed Light heats the dermis layer of the skin and raises pigment (brown spots) or discolouration.
The pigmentation will darken on the surface of the skin almost immediately and the body will either absorbs it or it will flake off within the next few days following the treatment. Lumecca targets pigmentation and vascular lesions by utilising photo-thermolysis which is a microsurgery technique that operates specific wavelengths of light by heating targeted cells tissue and destroys it through the absorption of light and the transfer of energy, without causing damage to surrounding tissue.
It is optimised for clinicians to treat a variety of skin types and conditions this is done through the light energy emitted by the IPL and is absorbed by the molecules responsible for its colour
