Curcio Dermatology is the first practice in Middle TN to offer one of the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) devices on the market, called Lumecca™ IPL. IPL devices, like Lumecca™, use gentle pulses of broad-spectrum light to selectively target and treat skin conditions in light and dark skin, to even out your skin tone. It is the gold standard for the treatment of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, sun spots, freckles and even stimulates collagen rejuvenation for improved skin texture and tone. The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, chest, forearms, hands, lower legs, back, and shoulders.
With Lumecca™, you can complete your photorejuvenation in an initial series of 2-3 treatments, one every 4 weeks, versus 4-6 with standard IPLs. Depending on the condition of your skin, more treatments may be necessary. Many people maintain their results with an additional maintenance treatment every 6-12 months. You will likely notice positive changes even after your very first session. These gentle, no downtime treatments produce skin that is more uniform in color and has fewer blemishes. IPL treatments can be maximized by using an accompanying topical skin lightening product, retinol or retinoid product, and daily sunscreen.
