Preparing For Lumecca IPL

Patients who are interested in Lumecca can begin with a consultation appointment with a comprehensive skin analysis. In addition to determining if Lumecca is right for you, this appointment is your opportunity to ask questions and learn more about your treatment options. 

You may be advised to discontinue certain medications or skin care products, such as retinoids, in the week leading up to your Lumecca treatment. You should also avoid sun exposure before your treatment. 

During Lumecca IPL Treatment

Lumecca sessions typically take between 30 and 60 minutes. The Lumecca device has a unique sapphire tip that creates a cooling sensation during treatment. Patients do not typically require numbing cream, although you may request it if you have sensitive skin.  

Recovery After Lumecca IPL

There is minimal to no downtime after Lumecca IPL treatment. Some individuals may experience temporary redness or mild swelling, but these side effects typically subside within a few hours to a day. It is important to avoid sun exposure in the days after treatment. Dr. Rowland will give you detailed post-treatment instructions and she can also recommend products to optimize and maintain your results.
