Remove Sun Spots and Age Spots

Patients who have age spots, sun damage, vessels, and rosacea can expect superior clearance in 1-3 treatments versus 4-6 compared to the standard IPL. Most patients who are exposed to the sun for long periods of time will notice brown spots appear along their face, chest, hands, and other parts of their body. This is common; however, most patients do seek treatment in our office to get rid of these blemishes. Whether your areas of concern are brown or red, our IPL can exceed your expectations in getting the results you desire.

Frequently asked questions

What is Lumecca?


Lumecca is the most powerful intensive pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of their skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photo facial through the delivery of comfortable light treatment.




What are the benefits?


In just 1-3 sessions, Lumecca improves the appearance of: • Age spots (red/brown pigmentations) • Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma • Rosacea (redness) • Freckles • Sun damage





How many sessions are required?


An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime depends on the severity of the skin damage, skin type, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.




How quickly will I see results?


Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks.Having multiple photo facial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as facial telangiectasias, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.




Are there any side effects?


Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
