Lumecca

Lumecca is the newest generation of IPL technology, which stands for intense pulse light or is sometimes referred to as photo-facial, treats pigmented and vascular lesions. While you may have tried IPL in the past, the Lumecca technology and the delivery of light to the cell is different and more effective in treating sun damage, hyperpigmentation, aging skin, broken capillaries, vessels, rosacea, melasma and brown spots. Lumecca delivers a spectrum of light waves from 515-580 for safe, gentle and effective skin renewal.

Aside from being a powerhouse for the correction of pigmented and vascular lesions, Lumecca is a game-changer for treating aging skin. Recent studies point to the power of light to effectively treat signs of aging skin such as crepey skin, large pores, fine lines and even deeper wrinkles. Light therapy has been discovered to actually change the RNA of skin cells over time and turn off the cells that cause damage and promote the aging process.

Anton MD Aesthetics offers two Lumecca packages, one aimed at correcting pigment and the other aimed at preventing and reversing signs of aging. All our Lumecca packages include your home care products from our medical grade skin care line, CORE, by Anton MD. CORE stands for Correct, Optimize, Renew and Exfoliate. Lumecca can also be used in combination with other treatment options like Fractora, Forma and Injectables for those seeking total, non-surgical, facial rejuvenation. During your complimentary skin care consultation, your concerns will be addressed along with other considerations such as budget, available recovery time, lifestyle, plus long and short-term beauty goals.

  • Includes a package of 3 treatments/area – scheduled 2 to 3 weeks apart depending on skin type
  • CORE skin care products – illume, Elta MD sunscreen.

Treatment area(s)

Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs

Who is a Candidate

Skin types 1-4 on the Fitzpatrick Scale. People with light to olive and dark olive skin tones presenting with uneven pigment, sun damaged skin, rosacea, broken capillaries, spider veins, brown spots and some cases of Melasma.

What to Expect

Treated area(s) is numbed with a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes before the treatment begins. You may feel a slight snap, like a rubber band, as the pulse of light makes contact with your skin. The technician makes two passes over the cheeks, chin, lip, nose, and forehead area. Most patients report no discomfort during the 30-minute treatment process. A Zimmer cooler is on hand if needed for additional comfort.

Downtime and Recovery

The treated area is pink to slightly red immediately following treatment but typically subsides within an hour. Slight swelling can occur but subsides within 1-3 days. Brown granules, like coffee grains, appear on the treated area within 1-5 days and slough off between 5-14 days. Sunscreen must be worn at all times during and after recovery whenever skin is exposed to sunlight, including indirect sunlight such as driving.

Results

There will be significant improvement after just one treatment. Residual pigmentation imperfections are targeted with the second and third treatment. It is important to complete all three Lumecca Brighten treatments for maximum and longest lasting results, though visible, significant changes may not appear as they did initially. After the six to eight week treatment period skin will be noticeably brighter, tone is more even, clear, and pores smaller. Having brighter more even skin tone significantly reduces signs of aging so skin looks and behaves younger and more vibrant.

How long do results last

After final treatment, when optimal results are achieved, your new younger looking skin can stay that way for years to come. Of course, the aging process never stops to maintain the great results you get with the Lumecca Brightening package limit sun exposure, protect your skin with a physical sunblock, use the CORE skin care products daily at home and purchase one of the recommended Maintenance packages. With the proper sun protection, Lumecca is suitable for people with active, outdoor lifestyles who are looking to maintain their youth.
