Synergy Medical's Lumecca's Photofacial Experience
On your first visit, you will meet with our Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner who will review your medical history, previous aesthetic treatments, and your aesthetic goals. Pre-procedure instructions such as avoiding sun exposure and using sunscreen will be given so you can prepare for your next appointment.
Patients will receive the treatment in a comfortable room. You will be provided with light filtering glasses to protect your eyes during the procedure. A water based gel will be applied to the area being treated. During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light snapping sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subside within an hour. Typically the entire treatment takes less than 30 minutes.
Immediately after the procedure, the skin will be slightly pink to red in color and feel like a sunburn. Cooling packs can be used to assist with comfort and swelling. As you will be sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment, it is recommended to avoid sun exposure for at least 4 weeks after treatment. Use a sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF that protects against UVA and UVB rays.
Brown spots or freckles may appear darker after treatment during the healing phase, this is normal. As blemishes surface, leave them be! They will flake off naturally.
It is preferred to avoid makeup for at least 12 hours after the procedure. Other instructions may be given at your appointment.
Most patients receive 2-3 treatments spaced a month apart. Results are usually noticeable around 2-3 weeks after the first treatment. Lumecca may be a part of a multi-treatment plan which may include other treatments such as Morpheus8 RF Microneedling or VI Peel treatments. Most patients will be recommended a follow a skin care routine and touch up treatments every now and then to maintain results.

Some Of Our Success Stories
This was the best and most professional medical experience I have had in a long time. Melina, Dr. Lewis and staff are exceptional. I would recommend them any time.
I was bone on bone in my left knee and was told that I needed a knee replacement about 5 years ago. I didn’t want to have surgery at my age so I decided to try stem cell therapy. It’s been almost 3 months since my treatment and I feel like a new man. No more pain and I can finally play tennis again. Thank you to all at synergy for treating me like family and saving my knee. I am forever grateful. If you are thinking about trying stem cells, do it.
I spent 10 years with pain in my back. I tried physical therapy, shots, and thought that I just had to live with it. I went to a seminar about stem cells figured I would look into it since I tried everything else. My first visit was with the nurse practitioner who reviewed my MRI and said that I would be able to do stem cells in my low back. I had my shots a week later by the pain management doctor and it’s been 2 and a half months and I’m happy to say that I am about 80% better. I am ecstatic that I decided to give stem cells a try. I recommend synergy to everyone I know.
My experience with Synergy Medical was outstanding. In less then two months I went from barely being able to walk to a no pain environment.
The staff was very professional, courteous and knowledgeable.
All sessions were conducted on time, in a comfortable atmosphere, catered to my individual needs for a full recovery.
