At Perfect Skin Solutions, we see great results with combination therapies. Lumecca and Morpheus8 together is a great treatment choice for those in need of surface correction (sun damage/ age spots/ redness) but also wanting to address jowls or sagging skin, on the face, neck or almost anywhere else! Morpheus8 goes deeper into the layers of your skin using micro-needling and radio-frequency waves. This treatment penetrates up to 4mm, targeting the deepest layer of your skin and even unwanted fat underneath. Results with Morpheus8 include improvement with deep lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, scarring, jowls, loose neck skin, under chin fat, as well as improvement in skin tone and texture. This treatment would require an Aesthetic consultation with Dr Patel. Please refer to the Morpheus8 page to learn more.

FAQs

What is Lumecca?

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

What are the benefits?

In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:

• Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
• Sun damage
• Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine stains, leg telangiectasia)
• Rosacea (redness)
• Freckles

What areas can be treated?

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. However is safe and effective on most parts of the body and face.

What steps must be taken before the procedure?

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

Are there any side effects?

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

What should I expect during and after Lumecca?

During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and 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 color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.

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 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 photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as spider or leg veins, results can be seen in up to 2 weeks.
