After just one treatment, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin.

The Lumecca™ IPL therapy is a powerful and effective treatment that reduces and removes specific pigments in the skin, from redness and spider veins to discoloured patches.

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.

Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) and at Beau Boutique we use it in our skin clinic to treat and remove age spots, red/brown pigmentation, sun damage, vascular lesions, spider veins, rosacea, freckles & acne scarring.

How quickly will I see results from a Lumecca treatment?

An improved skin appearance can be noticed after the first session.

Multiple sessions provide even better results.

Treatment regime depends on the severity of skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.

Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen within a few days of the first session. The skin will continue to look clearer over time with the most visible results after one to two weeks.

Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final results. For vascular treatments such as thread veins, results can often be seen immediately with optimum results visible within 2 weeks.

You may see a darkening of pigmented spots over the first 24-48 hours following your treatment. Over the course of the week the treated pigmentation will flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone.

After treatment for vascular lesions such as thread veins you may see the vein blanch and disappear, or a colour change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.

Will I need a patch test?

Yes all IPL treatments will require a patch test and at this consultation we can discuss your concerns and also advise whether more than one treatment will be required for best results.

Lumecca™ has been FDA approved to treat Fitzpatrick Skin types I-IV so you are completely safety-assured with this treatment.

Which areas can be treated with Lumecca?

Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body and is suitable for all skin types and tones.

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.

How does Lumecca work?

Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment. 

During Treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation.

Redness ans a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour.

Over the next 24 – 48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards 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 colour change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.

What happens at the appointment?

After a consultation and assessment, which we can offer you prior to booking your first treatment to initially assess your condition and advise you on your results, we apply an ultrasound gel to the area being treated.

During the Lumecca™ treatment, there will be bright flashes of light from the Lumecca™ hand piece that feel like a light elastic band sensation against the surface of the skin.

Don’t worry – you will be wearing a pair of protective goggles through the treatment to protect your eyes.

Usually the actual treatment lasts for around 5-10 minutes* and the skin will feel slightly ‘sunburnt’ afterwards.

*Duration depends on area being treated.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

At your initial appointment or consultation session, we will assess your skin and talk through your specific requirements.

Often we will use our VISIA complexion analysis system here to show you the exact scientific details of what we plan to treat and the results you can look forward to.

Depending on the severity of skin damage and type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) we will then be able to prescribe a treatment plan to suit your requirements.

Usually between 2 and 4 sessions will be required depending on the severity of the sun damage present.

Can I speak to someone before booking in Lumecca?

How long do the results of the Lumecca treatment last?

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to the Lumecca treatment.

Most patients experience no side effects, occasionally minor skin redness/swelling may occur but usually resolves within a few hours.

Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment but all hose having a treatment at Beau Boutique will be given extensive and detailed aftercare instructions at their appointment and our practitioners will ensure all questions are answered.
