What is Lumecca?
Patients with pigmented or vascular lesions may feel embarrassed or self-conscious about the appearance of their skin. At MedicSPA, Dr. Patricia Berbari 18 years’ cosmetic practice experience will help you using the IPL Lumecca* system to address uneven skin tone, rosacea, and sun damage in a treatment lasting under one hour. With years of experience in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Berbari is well-equipped to help you achieving your unique aesthetic goals.
Lumecca* can treat a variety of skin conditions on every area of the body. This type of treatment is effective for improving the appearance of:
- Uneven pigmentation
- Sun damage
- Vascular lesions
- Large pores
- Freckles Wrinkles
If you are uncertain about whether IPL is appropriate for your goals, Dr. Berbari can evaluate you during a consultation.
What to Expect during Treatment?
Lumecca can usually be completed in under 45 minutes at MedicSPA Gatineau. To begin the treatment process, protective eyewear will be provided. This will shield you from the bright flashes of light. Next, a cool gel will be applied to the treatment area. This will provide lubrication and help keep the skin cool during the procedure.
Brief pulses of light will be applied to the skin via the hand-piece. During this step, patients will feel a warming sensation and may experience slight discomfort, similar to the snap of a rubber band on the skin. The larger the treatment area, the more pulses you will require. Once the procedure is complete, the treatment area will be iced to soothe the skin.
Recovery following IPL with Lumecca is typically short. Patients may notice redness and dark spots on the skin, although these side effects usually diminish within one week. In some cases, the skin may return to normal within a few hours. Full results are typically noticeable just a few days after the first session. After treatment, it is essential that patients protect the skin by wearing sunblock and avoiding excessive sun exposure.
