Sunpots & Damage
Fun in the sun–who doesn’t love that?! Unfortunately, too much exposure to the sun can cause sunspots, which are brown spots or lesions that may appear on the face, neck, décolleté, arms, and other area that may be exposed to the sun for extended periods of time. These lesions are harmless, however, they are often unattractive. Too much exposure to the sun can also cause discoloration and uneven skin complexion. Lumecca treatments diminish pigmented and vascular lesions, including spider veins, on the face and body.
Rosacea is a fairly common skin condition that affects many people. Rosacea causes redness of skin on your face, where tiny blood vessels become visible. Quite often, rosacea can be mistaken for acne. There is no cure for rosacea, however there are treatment options that help manage symptoms. Dr. Anna Yatskar provides revolutionary rosacea treatment with Lumecca by InMode.

Patients who have age spots, sun damage, vessels and rosacea can expect superior clearance in 1-3 treatment versus 4-6 compared to the standard IPL.

This is common; however, most patients do seek treatment in our office to rid of these blemishes.

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)
- 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.
