Skin Renewal and Clarity
Sun damage and skin complexion changes as we age. Lumecca is a safe, comfortable, IPL treatment for pigmented or vascular lesions. Great for treatment of age spots (red/brown pigmentations), vascular lesions such as facial spider veins, rosacea (redness of the cheeks), freckles, and sun damage.
What is Lumecca?
InMode 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 photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.
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. These often include the face, neck, decolletage, legs, hands, and arms.
During treatment, there will be a bright flash of light from Lumecca, and a sensation on your skin that feels like a light snap from an elastic band. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subside within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of 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.
An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session. Multiple sessions provide even better results.
The innovative technology allows Dr. Eisenberg to create a tailored skin treatment that meets your unique needs and goals and provides you with the most natural-looking outcome.

The only thing you’ll feel is a slight snap and will see a bright flash of light.
Most patients require one to three treatments, lasting 15 to 30 minutes each. There is no downtime after a session. Once the treatment is finished, you may have some temporary redness that will disappear quickly. We’ll apply a sunscreen before you leave the office to help protect the skin.
What’s great about the treatment is it can be done before or after other treatments, as well as by itself. If you’re interested in the treatment of skin discolorations with Lumecca in Knoxville, schedule an appointment at Knoxville Center for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery today!
