Brown spots, sun damage, spider veins, and discoloration are common signs of premature aging. Unfortunately, over-the-counter skincare products can do very little to treat these skin concerns. Here at BodyBrite Toronto, we have a better solution, the IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Photofacial.
With an IPL photofacial treatment, you can significantly reduce the appearance of brown spots, hyperpigmentation, discoloration of the skin, sun damage and more and get a younger-looking complexion.
This type of facial treatment works with advanced Intense Pulse Lighting technology by delivering heat through several layers of skin, correcting imperfections in the process without compromising the surrounding tissue.
At BodyBrite Toronto, Missauga, and Markham locations, we use Venus Versa™ technology to provide maximum value and visible results to all our customers. This high-tech device comes with a built-in cooling system and added safety features to keep patients comfortable during each photo facial session.
Our experts will customize the device to suit each patient’s skin needs. This not only results in a more comfortable experience, but also in greater, more visible results.
Lumecca™ is an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment used at BodyBrite Toronto locations for a wide variety of skin conditions that helps improve skin tone and decrease hyperpigmentation. Ageing, sun spots, rosacea, vascular lesions, and even acne are some of the many skin problems Lumecca™ is designed to treat.
The treatment involves sending beams of light and heat into your skin tissue, which breaks up discoloration on your face by constricting facial veins close to the surface of the skin. Once the skin is heated, the treated area will rid itself of the unwanted cells while also boosting collagen production. With increase collagen levels, your skin will become remodeled to make it look and feel stronger and healthier.

Lumecca™ is safe to be used all over the body, however, patients most often target areas of the skin that are regularly exposed to the sun. This includes the face, neck, chest, legs, hands, and arms.
Lumecca™ is considered a photofacial, meaning it targets skin damage that is caused or exacerbated by the sun. Through intentional or unintentional tanning and exposure to UVA and UVB rays, photodamage will occur over time—resulting in sun spots, fine lines, and other skin irregularities like large pores. As we age, these problems can become more visible and may require aesthetic treatments.
This treatment is safe for patients with skin types 1, 2 and 3. For lighter and darker skin types, you can rely on Lumecca™‘s advanced technology to treat various skin areas and conditions with its wide range of wavelengths that adjust to you skin’s natural pigmentation better than traditional IPL. Our team of highly trained professionals will ensure that your treatment is performed safely and effectively.
This will depend on the patient and on the area being treated, but most patients require 4-5 treatments per area.
Sessions should be spaced three weeks apart.
This depends on the size of the area being treated, but most sessions typically take 15-20 minutes.
Generally, the results are long lasting and can be maintained for years. For some clients, pigment can return however, it takes time for hyperpigmentation or vascular lesions to reoccur.
During your Lumecca™ IPL treatment, there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca™ device which produces a sensation similar to that of a light rubber band snap. Redness and warming of the skin are normal after treatment, and usually subside within an hour. Most patients find the treatment to be quite tolerable.
Our experts will be glad to answer any additional questions you may have about this type of treatment and to schedule you in for an appointment.
