Achieve a brighter, smoother, and more youthful glow

Lumecca IPL photofacial is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure designed to address various skin concerns through intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. This non-invasive treatment targets pigmented and vascular lesions, including sun spots, age spots, freckles, rosacea, and visible blood vessels. Lumecca works by emitting multiple wavelengths of intense light energy onto the skin’s surface, selectively targeting melanin and hemoglobin, the pigments responsible for discoloration and vascular lesions.

The process begins with the IPL handpiece emitting precise pulses of light onto the targeted areas. The melanin and hemoglobin absorb the light energy, which is then converted into heat. This heat selectively destroys the unwanted pigmented or vascular lesions while leaving surrounding skin and tissue unharmed. Additionally, Lumecca’s advanced cooling technology ensures patient comfort throughout the procedure. Over time, the body’s natural healing process removes the damaged tissue, revealing clearer, smoother, and more evenly toned skin.

Lumecca IPL photofacial can treat the following:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Rosacea
  • Vascular lesions
  • Visible blood vessels
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Overall skin texture and quality issues

Your personalized Lumecca IPL photofacial session at SVSS

During your consultation at SVSS Aesthetics, Rachel will assess your skin condition, discuss your cosmetic goals, and evaluate whether Lumecca IPL photofacial is the right treatment for you. Rachel will inquire about your medical history, any current medications, and previous skin treatments to ensure the procedure’s safety and effectiveness. Additionally, she will explain the treatment process in detail, including what to expect before, during, and after the sessions.

Rachel will cleanse your skin and apply a cooling gel to enhance comfort and protect the skin’s surface. Next, she will use the IPL handpiece to deliver precise pulses of light energy to the targeted areas. The duration of the session varies depending on the size and number of treatment areas. Typically, patients undergo a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Rachel will recommend the appropriate number of sessions based on your skin condition and desired outcome.


Is Lumecca IPL photofacial safe for all skin types?

Yes, Lumecca IPL photofacial is safe for all skin types, including fair, medium, and dark skin tones. The advanced technology allows for customizable settings to ensure optimal results while minimizing the risk of adverse effects. However, you must consult Rachel to determine if Lumecca IPL photofacial is suitable for your specific skin condition and concerns.

What should I expect during a Lumecca IPL photofacial treatment session?

During a Lumecca IPL photofacial treatment, you can expect to experience a series of short pulses of intense light energy being delivered to the targeted areas of your skin. Before the procedure begins, your skin will be cleansed, and a cooling gel will be applied to enhance comfort and protect the skin’s surface. The treatment itself is relatively quick and generally well-tolerated, with most sessions lasting between 20 to 30 minutes.

Is there any downtime associated with Lumecca IPL photofacial?

Lumecca IPL photofacial involves minimal to no downtime. You may experience mild redness and swelling immediately following the procedure, but these side effects typically resolve within a few hours to a day. In rare cases, temporary bruising or darkening of pigmented lesions may occur, but these effects are transient and should fade over time. You can typically resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment.

How many Lumecca IPL photofacial sessions will I need to see results?

The number of Lumecca IPL photofacial sessions needed to achieve optimal results depends on individual skin concerns and treatment goals. In general, most patients undergo 3 to 6 sessions spaced several weeks apart for optimal results. Rachel will assess your skin condition during the initial consultation and recommend a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

How long do the results of Lumecca IPL photofacial last?

The results of Lumecca IPL photofacial can last several months or years, but maintenance treatments may be necessary to sustain the results. Rachel will work with you to develop a treatment plan that includes maintenance sessions tailored to your unique skincare needs.
