Why Lumecca Is The Perfect Treatment For Winter?

Why Lumecca Is The Perfect Treatment For Winter?

When your summer tan fades and the weather starts to cool down, it becomes the perfect time to begin Lumecca treatments.

Not quite sure what Lumecca is or when you should be undergoing treatment? Then this is for you. Keep reading to learn more about InMode’s revolutionary technology, Lumecca, and why it is the perfect treatment for winter to keep your skin looking flawless.

What is Lumecca? 

Lumecca is a type of intense pulsed light (IPL) technology by InMode that delivers more power and energy than traditional IPL technology. It is cutting-edge technology that has revolutionised IPL therapy treatments, reducing the number of sessions that clients need to have before seeing results. 

Lumecca is more powerful and more efficient than traditional IPL, capable of delivering up to three times more energy in the 500-600nm range. It’s capable of improving the appearance of vascular and pigmented lesions in as little as one to two treatments, as opposed to four to six for other IPL options. 

IPL has been around for years, but there’s nothing quite like our Lumecca technology. Its broad range of customisable settings caters to diverse skin types and conditions, enhancing treatment precision and safety. This technology's proficiency in stimulating collagen production fosters skin rejuvenation, offering patients a non-invasive option to achieve a youthful and clear complexion. With Lumecca, InMode presents a remarkable solution that combines effectiveness, versatility, and advanced IPL capabilities in the realm of dermatological care.

Why Is Lumecca the Perfect Treatment for Winter?

When undergoing IPL treatments – no matter whether it’s Lumecca or traditional IPL – your skin should always be in its natural state. This means no summer glow, no fresh tan (real or fake); just bare, natural skin. If you undergo IPL treatment and your skin is pigmented from the sun, you may risk side effects of hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation

Skin that is not suntanned is better for the laser to detect the colour contrast in your skin. This means that the best time to have laser treatments is during the mid to late winter when your summer tan has faded and your skin has paled.

Why Lumecca is a Year-round Solution

With proper sun protection and skincare, patients can safely undergo Lumecca treatments even in sunnier months. This flexibility allows for continuous skin improvement and maintenance. When you book a treatment, your clinician will be able to guide you on the best possible after-care, ensuring you get the best possible results with the shortest healing time. While winter is an optimal time for IPL treatments, Lumecca’s advanced technology allows for effective treatments throughout the year. Here’s why:

Strongest IPL on the Market

Lumecca is one of the strongest IPL devices available, making it highly effective in fewer sessions. This strength ensures that patients can see significant improvements regardless of the season. 

Versatile Treatment Capabilities

Lumecca’s ability to treat various skin concerns means it can be tailored to address specific seasonal skin issues, whether it’s sun damage in the summer or dryness and dullness in the winter. 

How Lumecca Enhances Your Skin

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments can be used to address a variety of skin concerns, including acne scarring. Here's how IPL can help:

Reduction of Redness

Lumecca can target and reduce the redness and discolouration associated with acne scars, helping to even out skin tone. Through targeted, potent energy, it prompts your skin to remove the unwanted cells - including those that are discoloured. 

IPL uses light energy to target a certain colour in your skin. When the skin is heated, your body gets rid of the unwanted cells, and that gets rid of the issue you're being treated for. It can treat a range of skin conditions at the same time. After IPL, you may look younger because your skin tone is more even.

Collagen Stimulation

IPL promotes the production of collagen, which can help in the healing process and improve the appearance of acne scars over time by smoothing out the skin.

Surface Texture Improvement

By targeting discolouration and boosting collagen production simultaneously, you’ll notice the overall texture of your skin improves as well. You’ll be left with more even colouration and firmer, smoother skin. 

What Does Lumecca Treat?

IPL is known for its ability to treat a wide range of skin conditions, and Lumecca is no different. Some of the problems that using this laser treatment in the winter can improve include:


Pigmentation is the discolouration on the skin that appears to be darker than the natural skin pigment, and it can look like freckles or larger spots. It’s caused by a number of factors, including sun exposure, hormonal changes and ageing. And while it’s completely normal to have, it’s also normal for this to be an insecurity for some – especially as you age. Undergoing Lumecca treatment for your hyperpigmentation is the perfect solution for evening out your skin tone and restoring it to its former glory.

Age Spots

Age spots are another type of pigmentation that develops naturally with age. They most commonly appear in areas that have been exposed to the sun, and despite the name, age spots can occur at any stage in someone’s life. However, they pop up more and more as the years go by, and are often a tan, brown or black colour. 

If you were shy with sunscreen in your younger years, there’s a likely chance you have a few of these here and there. Lumecca targets age spots by emitting controlled pulses of broad-spectrum light, which is absorbed by the excess melanin in the skin. This process heats and breaks down the pigment, causing it to gradually fade and blend with the surrounding skin. Over a series of sessions, age spots become lighter and less noticeable, resulting in a more even and rejuvenated skin tone.

One patient wanted to reduce the visible signs of sun damage in preparation for a wedding she was attending. Following just one session she had this to say: 

“After just 10 days there was a significant reduction in the pigmentation - particularly on my forehead and upper lip, I decided to have three further treatments to complete the course as recommended by Susan and have been left with what feels like brand new bright and clear skin.” - Lisa Cruess


Rosacea, or acne rosacea, is an angry-looking skin inflammation that affects the face. It occurs when the small surface blood vessels (capillaries) of the skin enlarge, giving the appearance of a permanent flush. Unlike acne, however, rosacea does not scar.

Lumecca can help treat rosacea by targeting the visible blood vessels and redness associated with the rosacea. The light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels, causing them to constrict and fade over time. This can lead to a reduction in redness and flushing, making the skin appear clearer and more even-toned.

Acne Scarring

Similar to other forms of pigmentation, acne scarring is naturally occurring, and many individuals have some level of scarring if they have suffered from acne. Luckily, Lumecca is able to minimise the appearance of it. The light energy targets the darker pigmentation in the scars, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin rejuvenation. This helps to improve the texture and smoothness of the skin, diminishing the appearance of scars over time.
