Dual Light Acne
Our Light Therapy
The procedure is very straight forward and simple.
Our Aesthetician will begin by gently cleansing the treatment area. Then the treatment starts by holding the light-emitting device directly over the problem area. Once the specified amount of time has passed the device is repositioned and the process is repeated until the entire area has been covered. The typical treatment last about 30 minutes.
The procedure is painless and has no associated down time.

The End Result
The reduction in acne will happen over time. It typically takes between 8 and 10 treatments to truly heal the problem areas. We recommend having the treatment done twice a week for four weeks to obtain the best results.
Aside from the physical effects of acne, the condition can also have an impact on emotional and psychological well-being. That's why we believe using technology that addresses the core issue is so important.
To truly engage and heal the problem area not only makes you physically better, but it helps you feel better emotionally as well.
The End Result
We recommend a peel to accelerate the natural exfoliation process which will keep your skin looking fresh.
For those with sensitive skin or minor issues an enzyme peel produces the following results:
Controls acne, shrinks pores, and removes blackheads
Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and some scarring
Reduces age spots and redness
For those with more severe issues the chemical peel is best when it comes to:
Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles
Smoothing pigmentation and acne scars
Shrinking large pores
Tightening sagging skin
Depending on your skin type and need we can help find a treatment that is right for you.
What Is Light Therapy?
Sciton Forever Clear™ combines unique, highly effective technologies in one workstation for true versatility. For BBL light based acne treatment, blue light targets and destroys the porphyrin produced by Propionibacterium Acnes bacteria. At the same time the longer wavelengths of yellow and red light controls inflammation and promotes faster healing.
We all know how troublesome acne can be, breakouts can occur at any stage of life. In fact, clinical studies have shown that 40-55% of adults aged 20 to 40 are diagnosed with low-grade acne and oily skin. Fortunately, this is finally a treatment that meets the problem at the source. Eliminating the bacteria and healing all at the same time.
At Lumera we pride ourselves on having the latest technology and Forever Clear is no exception. It allows us to get better results than standard industry treatments, in a fraction of the time.
Is the procedure painful?
No, not at all. There is a slight warming sensation and that's it.
How many treatments do I need?
Like we said above, it typically takes between 8 and 10 treatments. However, it really depends on the severity of the area being treated.
How long does it take?
Depending on the number and size of the areas being treated, the whole process typically takes about 30 minutes.
How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
