Lumecca-I Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment

What is Lumecca-I?

Lumecca stands out as the most potent intense pulsed light (IPL) system crafted for the treatment of pigmented and vascular lesions. Lumecca-I employs photothermolysis, offering a comfortable light treatment for a comprehensive photofacial experience. With over 15 years of FDA approval, IPL has been a trusted method for the removal of superficial skin lesions.

How does it work?

Lumecca-I generates tissue heating to alleviate inflammation. Throughout the procedure, you may experience a bright flash of light and a sensation on your skin akin to a gentle snap from an elastic band. It's normal to observe temporary redness and a mild warming of the skin post-treatment and these symptoms typically resolving within an hour.

How can Lumecca-I help my dry eye?

  • Targets inflammation of the eyelids that can cause dry eye.

  • Uses flashes of light to penetrate the deep tissue and selectively target and seal fine blood vessels that may be contributing to inflammation.

  • Targets pigmented lesions and rosacea.

  • Help to re-activate the mitochondria in your meibomian glands to encourage more oil production.

  • Kills bacteria and Demodex on the skin that cause eyelid inflammation.

  • Suitable for skin times I through IV.

How many treatments are needed?

While Lumecca-I is an excellent treatment to improve your dry eye symptoms, it is not a cure. Treatments usually includes 4 sessions one treatment every 2-3 weeks for the maximum benefit. Treatments are recommended twice a year to help prevent regrowth of blood vessels and to maintain effective tear production.
