Lumecca - IPL in Yorkton, SK

Discover a superior solution to reduce skin irregularities, improve skin complexion, and clarity to look years younger.

What is Lumecca IPL?

Lumecca is an advanced and non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment designed to address a wide range of skin concerns effectively. Lumecca utilizes Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, which delivers broad-spectrum light to target specific skin imperfections and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a more youthful, even-toned complexion.

Lumecca IPL is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy available to treat redness, vascular lesions, pigmentation, and pigmented lesions. It offers unbeatable results and is optimized to treat a variety of skin lesions with fewer sessions.

How does Lumecca IPL work?

Lumecca operates by selectively using photothermolysis, which targets red and brown pigment in the skin. It provides a photo facial through the delivery of a much more comfortable light treatment compared to standard devices and offers a no-downtime photo-facial.
What are the benefits? It improves the appearance of:
  • Rosacea
  • Redness
  • Vascular lesions like spider veins on the face
  • Vascular neck pigmentation (Poikiloderma)
  • Freckles
  • Age spots (red/brown pigmentation)
  • Sun damage
  • Post-inflammatory Acne scarring (PIH)
  • Skin rejuvenation by improving complexion and skin clarity
Lumecca can be used anywhere on the body, but the most common areas are those that are regularly exposed to the sun, like the face, neck, décolletage, legs, hands, and arms.

What preparation is needed?

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning 4 weeks prior to the treatment. Stop all Retin-A, retinol, glycols, bleaching creams, and exfoliants three days before treatment.

How many sessions are recommended?

Improvement can be noted after the first session, although multiple sessions may be indicated for specific skin concerns and skin types. Typically, 3-6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended.

What to Expect?

During treatment, there will be a bright flash of light from Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subside 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 even-out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions, you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel, which dissipates after a few days.
