Do you have skin blemishes and sunspots that bother you? Do you desire a brighter, more even complexion, but don’t want to have surgery? Lumecca IPL can be a great solution.
Lumecca IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment is one of the most advanced non-invasive skin treatments for achieving beautiful skin tone. The device emits precise pulses of light that directly heats brown pigments and superficial blood vessels to give you visible improvements.
It has a wide range of wavelengths suitable for treating various skin types, as well as skin areas and conditions, such as red spots, brown spots, hyperpigmentation, tiny veins, rosacea and melasma on the face, neck, upper chest, arms and hands to achieve younger-looking, more blemish-free skin.
Lumecca IPL is an innovative device that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) that delivers up to 3X more energy in higher peak power ranges within the visible light spectrum. High peak power translates to optimal light absorption by hemoglobin and melanin which are the sources of discoloration and blemishes.
The Intense Pulsed Light selectively targets and treats skin conditions through selective photothermolysis. The technology is optimized for Fitzpatrick I, II and III skin types, negating the risk of Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH).
The tip of the device is made of sapphire which causes a strong cooling sensation and obviates the need for topical numbing, as well as protects the surface of the skin and makes the treatment comfortable and safe.
Facial Plastic Surgery Associates Reviews
Dr. Delaney explained the procedure very clearly. From start to finish it went exactly as explained and the results were better than expected. Dr. Delaney and his staff are so kind and sincere in wanting to help. I highly recommend him for any facial procedure.
Dr. Delaney is an absolute magician! I underwent a buccal fat removal procedure with him and I am thrilled with the results. This relatively minor procedure had significant results. Absolutely pain free, too! Dr. Delaney is an exceptional doctor, very skilled in all aspects of facial improvements. I highly recommend him for anyone considering this or any other procedure.
Amazing experience with Dr Delaney with my nose job !! My nose before and after is so incredible to see ! Would definitely recommended for anyone wanting to get their nose done !
Flawless experience. I researched and searched for the right facial plastic surgeon for my daughter for 2 years before making the decision to consult with Dr. Sean Delaney. I cannot explain how happy and beyond satisfied I am with Dr. Delaney and his wonderful team. Dr. Delaney performed a very thorough initial consultation and inspected my daughter’s nasal passages. He had a lot of detailed information about what needed to be done and what he could realistically do to help her breathe better and aesthetically look better. He under promised the outcome and overdelivered her final result. Dr. Delaney has experience, skill and technique, is a true artist and perfectionist, which has ultimately given my daughter the boost of confidence she needed to look and feel her best! Thank you, Dr. Delaney and your amazing team from the bottom of my heart, you are truly TOP KNOTCH!

A small handheld wand that emits therapeutic light pulses glides over your skin. The treatment wand features a sapphire tip that provides cooling for a comfortable and safe treatment experience.
You may feel a small sensation like a rubber band snap on your skin with the light pulse in some instances. The average session takes about 30 to 45 minutes. After the procedure you may return to your normal activities and apply makeup immediately, however you should stay out of the sun. You will experience very little or no swelling or redness. Sunspots will look darker for about 7-10 days as your skin expels the pigment.

Lumecca IPL FAQs
How is Lumecca IPL different than other IPL treatments?
Lumecca IPL is currently the most powerful IPL device on the market. The number of treatments needed is approximately 3 to 4 rather than 6 to 8 with some other devices. The length of time per treatment is also less and there is no recovery time.
When will I see results?
After your IPL session the tone of the treated red and brown spots may darken after treatment over the next 24 hours. After 7 to 10 days, treated skin blemishes will peel or fade away, leaving behind a more uniform skin tone. Future age spots, freckles, and blemishes may reform as a result of sun damage and aging, but it is also always possible to treat new blemishes. Broken capillaries or other recurring conditions are not curable through light treatments but can be managed and reduced.
In our experience, a series of at least three treatments spaced 3 to 6 weeks apart provides the best, most consistent results.
Does Lumecca IPL treatment hurt?
IPL treatments are quite painless. Unlike most energy-based skin treatments, IPL treatments do not require numbing. The device emits pulses of very bright light that can feel a little bit like a rubber band snap on the skin.
How often do I need to do IPL treatments?
To obtain the optimal results, we recommend three treatments spaced approximately 3-6 weeks apart. For maintenance, we recommend treatment every 3 to 6 months as well as consistent use of sun screen.
What skin conditions are best suited for IPL?
IPL can be used for many different skin conditions. It can help improve skin tone and decrease hyperpigmentation like dark spots caused by sun damage and aging. It can also help with redness, freckling and rosacea.
How long does an IPL treatment take?
Lumecca IPL takes approximately 30 minutes per general treatment area.
What is the recovery like?
Recovery time from a session of intense pulsed light therapy is virtually nonexistent. The pulses of light do most of their work close to the surface of the skin, so the most common effect after a treatment is slight redness of the treated area. Redness may linger about an hour after treatment, but will soon resolve.
We recommend that patients avoid direct sunlight exposure for at least two weeks after each session and to liberally use sunscreen to protect the skin.
Who performs IPL?
At Facial Plastic Surgery Associates, Lumecca IPL is performed by Dr. Sean Delaney or Maria Alanis, licensed clinical aesthetician under the supervision of Dr. Sean Delaney.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Lumecca IPL?
If you have uneven, sun-damaged skin, or rosacea, you are a good candidate for Lumecca IPL. IPL therapy is not recommended for those who have freshly tanned or sunburned skin, are taking Accutane, or have other chronic health conditions that may impair healing.
