IPL Laser Resurfacing | Chicago, IL

Lumecca IPL laser resurfacing is the most advanced intense pulsed light therapy treatment available today!

"Lumecca brightened my face and gave me a beautiful glow!"

The Lumecca treatment can be used on all areas of the body. Lumecca works to treat certain skin concerns including uneven pigmentation, sun damage, freckles, and vascular lesions.


Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) that treats pigmented and vascular lesions. You will be able to notice significant improvements in your complexion just after one use.

Lumecca works to even out your skin tone through comfortable light treatment. It improves your skin tone while decreasing hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure and aging. After your treatments are complete, you will notice the overall look of your skin is more even and radiant.

Lumecca can be used on all areas of your body. It is most commonly used on areas that get a lot of sun exposure. This can include:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  •  Hands
  •  Arms
  • Legs

Additionally, there is no downtime to receiving this treatment. Each treatment can take anywhere from 20-30 minutes and is customized to your specific concerns.

frequently asked questions

Before your Lumecca treatment

To prepare for your treatment, you should avoid skin irritation one month prior such as direct sun exposure, sunbathing, or tanning. Additionally, you should:

  • Stop the use of irritant topical products 1 week before your treatment. This includes retinol and tretinoin.
  • Stop the use of photosensitizing medications (antibiotics).
  • Stop the use of Accutane for 6 months.
  • Stop the use of self tanners on the face for 1 week and 2 weeks on the body.
  • Arrive to your appointment with clean skin (no makeup, lotions, perfume, jewelry or other skin products on the area being treated).

Does Lumecca hurt?

During treatment, you will experience a bright flash of light which produces a sensation similar to a light rubber band snap. Most patients find the treatment to be tolerable and relatively painless.

What is the downtime following my Lumecca treatment?

Since Lumecca does not injure or puncture the skin, there is no downtime following the treatment. Immediately after your procedure, you may apply makeup, moisturizer, or a broad-spectrum SPF if needed.

How soon will I see results?

Following your treatment, you can expect redness and slight warming of the skin. This usually subsides within a few hours. Over the next week, pigmented spots may darken, pigmented lesions may flake off, and vascular lesions may change color. This is all normal, leading to a more even skin tone. 

You may begin to see results directly after your first treatment. Skin complexion and sun damage results can be seen within a few days after your first treatment. Your skin will look younger and more radiant after 1-2 weeks. Vascular treatment results can be seen within 2 weeks of treatment.

How much does Lumecca cost?

The cost of your Lumecca treatment can range between $250 to $2600 depending on what areas, and how many, need treatment. We customize each treatment plan to each individual patient. At Chicago Breast & Body Aesthetics, have a variety of different treatments available that can be combined to give our patients the best results.
