IPL Treatment Ottawa

The most powerful skin pigment treatment

What is lumecca?

The Lumecca™ IPL therapy is an effective and powerful treatment that reduces and removes specific skin pigments, from age spots, freckles, and redness to vascular lesions. This popular treatment has a quick procedure with visible results after the first one to two sessions.

Why us


Lumecca™ Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy reduces and removes visible pigmentation and broken capillaries, rejuvenating skin tone and restoring a clear complexion. 

How Lumecca works

The Lumecca™ IPL laser uses photo-thermolysis by delivering specific light wavelengths that interact with brown and red skin pigments. These pigments are destroyed from absorbing the light, often in a single session. Lumecca has an acute selectivity for redness and pigmentation caused by sun damage, making it one of the most effective treatments for this purpose.

Frequently Asked Questions

While results are often visible after one treatment, many patients require up to five sessions to see the best improvements. The number of sessions may also vary depending on individual skin concerns and your desired results.

IPL treatment is generally safe for those who have skin type one to four on the Fitzpatrick Scale. With the ability to adjust wavelengths to your skin’s natural pigmentation, Lumecca™ IPL therapy is safe and effective. However, there may be some exceptions. To ensure IPL treatment is right for you, reach out to us at BCI Clinic for a comprehensive consultation.

Lumecca™ IPL therapy is a versatile treatment for pigmentation, skin texture issues, and vascular lesions. It can target many different areas of the body, including the face, neck, hands, arms, legs, and back.

Most people can resume their routine activities immediately after their treatment. You may experience mild redness or swelling, but this subsides within a few days.

Aside from the mild redness or swelling described above, you may also see your pigmented spots darken. This eventually goes away as they flake off to even your skin tone.

Lumecca™ IPL therapy is generally painless, with minor sensations described as slight warming or tiny pinches on the targeted area.

In general, the effects of IPL treatment can last up to six months to a year. However, for optimal, prolonged results, periodic maintenance treatments are recommended.

If you’re concerned about redness, brown spots, hyperpigmentation, or sun damage, IPL treatment might be for you. However, we typically do not offer this treatment to individuals who are pregnant, take certain medications, or have chronic health conditions. To understand if you’re a right fit for Lumecca™ IPL therapy, contact us for an in-depth consultation.

Before your treatment, we’ll provide information about how to prepare for your session. This might include:

  • Avoiding sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanning products for at least four weeks before treatment.
  • Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 to shield your skin from UV damage.
  • Discontinuing products that make your skin more sensitive, like exfoliants and retinoids.
  • Avoiding specific hair removal methods, like plucking, waxing, or using hair removal creams on the targeted area. 
  • Staying hydrated before the treatment—hydrated skin tends to respond the best to any cosmetic medical procedure.

Yes, a consultation with our professionals is crucial before beginning a Lumecca™ IPL treatment at our Ottawa clinic. This allows us to understand your unique skin concerns, discuss your expectations, and determine if the treatment is right for you based on your skin type and individual goals.
