The Treatment Process

Your Lumecca IPL skin treatment will be performed at Medique NYC. During the treatment, a special handpiece will be passed over the areas of the face or body being treated. The handpiece will emit bursts of light that penetrate the layers of skin and generate heat. The treatment is not painful. You may feel some discomfort and a light pinching sensation around the treatment areas during the process.

What to Expect After Your Treatment

You may notice that the treated areas feel warm as well as some redness. The skin may feel slightly sunburnt. The skin may darken over the next few days before it begins to flake away. You can apply a moisturizer to soothe the area, but avoid applying anything harsh to the skin.

Most of the redness and flaking should be gone after a week. After two weeks, you should see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of your skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Lumecca treatment?
Lumecca is an advanced form of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy designed to improve the complexion and clarity of the skin. It effectively addresses a range of skin concerns by delivering precise light energy to target and reduce skin irregularities.
How does Lumecca work?
Lumecca operates by emitting intense pulsed light that penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the target areas. This light energy is then converted into heat, which destroys the unwanted pigment, vessels, or hair follicles, leading to clearer and more rejuvenated skin.
What skin concerns does Lumecca address?
Lumecca is highly effective in treating various skin concerns, including but not limited to sun damage, age spots, vascular lesions, rosacea, freckles, and uneven skin texture. It helps enhance the overall appearance of the skin by reducing imperfections.
Is Lumecca safe for all skin types?
Lumecca is designed to be safe for various skin types. However, the suitability of Lumecca for different skin tones and conditions may vary. A consultation at Medique is recommended to determine if Lumecca is the right option for your specific skin type and concerns.
What areas of the body can be treated with Lumecca?
Lumecca can be used to treat multiple areas of the body that are commonly exposed to the sun and show signs of damage or aging. This includes the face, neck, décolletage, hands, arms, and legs.
How many Lumecca sessions are typically needed?
The number of Lumecca sessions required can vary depending on the individual’s skin condition and the specific concerns being addressed. While some patients may see significant improvements after just one session, typically, one to three sessions are recommended for optimal results.
What is the downtime associated with the Lumecca treatment?
Lumecca treatment boasts minimal downtime. Most patients can resume their daily activities right after the procedure. While some mild redness or swelling may occur, it typically subsides within a few hours or a day.
When will I see results from Lumecca treatment?
Improvements from Lumecca treatment can often be seen shortly after the first session, with more significant results becoming apparent in the weeks following the treatment as the skin heals and rejuvenates.
How long do the results of Lumecca treatment last?
The longevity of Lumecca treatment results can vary based on the individual’s skin type, the area treated, and adherence to post-treatment care. Protecting the skin from sun exposure and maintaining a healthy skincare routine can help extend the results.
Is Lumecca treatment painful?
Lumecca treatment is generally well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing minimal discomfort. The sensation is often described as a light snap or flick on the skin. Cooling mechanisms and topical anesthetics can be used to enhance comfort during the procedure.
Can Lumecca be combined with other treatments?
Yes, Lumecca can be combined with other cosmetic treatments to achieve comprehensive skin rejuvenation results. Combining Lumecca with treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or injectables can address a wider range of skin concerns and enhance overall skin health and appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Medique's education and experience in plastic surgery contribute to allowing your providers to achieve better aesthetic results for patients?
No one knows the anatomy of the face and body better than a board-certified plastic surgeon and their team. Medique is not a spa made up of nurses with a non-existent MD director. It’s a team of plastic surgeons and physician associates, all qualified specialists in both invasive and non-invasive aesthetics.
From a patient experience perspective, (consultation, follow-up care, etc.), what are some things that would immediately stand out relative to going to a med spa owned/operated by a non MD business owner?

Complications can be avoided by searching for the correct provider to perform your procedure. Medique is where patients who want experts in plastic surgery caring for them come for care which is very different from an aesthetic injector (nurse, dentist, medical assistant) who has much less experience and knowledge.

How does Volbella differ from other Juvederm products?
Volbella, part of the Juvederm collection, is specifically designed for the lips and perioral area, focusing on subtle enhancement and smoothing of lip lines. Unlike other Juvederm products that target volume and contour in various facial areas, Volbella uses Vycross technology to provide a smooth, natural look and feel, ensuring your lips retain natural movement and softness.
How long do the effects of Volbella last?
The duration of Volbella's effects can vary based on individual factors, such as metabolism, lifestyle, and the specific area treated. Generally, patients can expect the results to last up to 12 months. Regular follow-up sessions can maintain the desired aesthetic.
Is a Volbella treatment painful, and what kind of anesthesia is used?
Patient comfort is paramount during Volbella treatments. Most patients report a mild sensation with minimal discomfort, thanks to the lidocaine in the product. Additionally, topical or local anesthesia may be used to ensure a comfortable experience throughout the procedure.
Can Volbella be combined with other cosmetic treatments?
Yes, Volbella can be part of a holistic treatment plan, complementing other non-invasive treatments such as Botox or skincare regimens. When combined thoughtfully, treatments can enhance overall facial aesthetics, providing a balanced and rejuvenated appearance.
How much does a Volbella treatment cost, and is it covered by insurance?
The cost of Volbella treatments varies depending on the treatment area and the amount of product used. Volbella is considered a cosmetic procedure and is typically not covered by insurance. Financing options and payment plans may be available to help manage the costs.
What Should I Expect During My First Volbella Treatment Session?
Your first session will begin with a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals and review your medical history. The actual treatment is quick, usually taking less than an hour. Post-treatment, some patients may experience slight swelling or bruising, which typically resolves within a few days.
