WHAT IS LUMECCA?

Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After just one use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photothermolysis, which provides a photo facial 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)
  • Vascular lesions such as facial telangiectasias (spider veins) and poikiloderma
  • Rosacea (redness)
  • Freckles
  • Sun damage

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.

WHAT STEPS MUST BE TAKEN BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?

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

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 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

Testimonials
They Really Love Us

“Being a medical aesthetician, usually, if I have a problem with my skin, I can fix it myself. For whatever I can’t fix, there is one single person I trust entirely with my face professionally and that is Mariesa! I’m a tough critic and there is not a single flaw within her comforting personality, professionalism, work ethic, honest advice and an eye that will never steer you wrong. Words are one thing but her results speak for themselves. I have recommended her to just about everyone I know. Mariesa is the best and genuinely cares to make you a better you, not a different you!”

Marielle, West New York

“Si vous chercher une perfectionniste vous trouverais la perle rare en Mariesa! Étant moi même dans le millieu de l art J ai reconnu tout de suite son talent unique ! Précise et à l écoute ,Je la recommande a tout le monde les yeux fermé.”

Yann, Paris

“I brought my mom to see Mariesa after a long time of trying to convince her that Botox wasn’t taboo. My mom was very nervous and Mariesa was super gentle and subtle with her treatment. My mom looks amazing and is now hooked just like me!”

Irena P.

“Let me start by saying I have contemplated lip filler for a long time. My consultation with Mariesa was so educational and she was so patient with me and all of my questions. I’m so happy I decided to go with her after doing all my research on different injectors. I love my results and feel like she’s not just someone who does my lips but also my friend.”

Ashley, Manhattan

Finding Mariesa was a blessing! I had been to plastic surgeons in the past that just didn’t listen to my concerns, or completely rushed the appointment. Mariesa really listens to every concern and formulates a plan for you- together! I felt so comfortable even from the first meeting. Her knowledge is so vast and she is so talented! She was honest when I asked her questions and never pushy. Her bedside manner is incredible and she is just a lovely person to be around. Whether you’re a first time patient or you are experienced with injectables- I would HIGHLY recommend Mariesa. She’s the perfect blend of everything you would hope for in an injector.

Tatiana, Manhattan

“Mariesa truly has made a major contribution to the way I feel every day. I’ve been getting injectable and cosmetic treatments for almost 10 years and she is by far the most skilled, educated, and humble provider. Her touch is very gentle and I’ve never even so much as bruised from any treatment she’s given me and I’ve been her patient for about 2 years. I’ll never let anyone touch my face but her forever!”

Christina, Brooklyn

“Going to Mariesa is where science and art combine to produce the results you want to achieve. And that “look” can only be achieved with a knowledgable injector. The “know how” is so critical and Mariesa knows the careful relationship of how manipulating one area will result in a change in another area. She does not rush through appointments and takes a balanced, well-planned approach which is priceless. Many doctors I have tried that advertise working on famous faces do not come close to Mariesa’s technique and interest to achieve results. Because of this detail and process, I leave my appointments feeling confident.”
