Limelight offers a safe, noninvasive solution for the correction of benign skin conditions that can be tailored to your specific skin type. Photorejuvenation is the process of using light to treat certain skin conditions and remove wrinkles brought on by aging. Intense pulsed light induces controlled wounds on the skin, which prompt healing and the creation of new cells, oftentimes reversing the effects of aging.
Limelight can be used to treat:
- Sun damaged skin
- Red, brown and age spots
- Facial veins
As we age, collagen production decreases causing natural skin aging. In addition, sun exposure causes changes in vital skin structures and further decreases collagen production. Limelight stimulates collagen production, so as new collagen forms, it plumps the skin and softens the appearance of aging skin. Brown spots and redness lighten or disappear, pores shrink, and texture softens. The result is younger, fresher looking skin. The effects of treatments are cumulative, so improvements steadily increase with each procedure. Many people are drawn to Limelight because these treatments cause little or no downtime and patients report few side effects after the procedure.
Several treatments are often needed. Limelight has a drastic effect on the first treatment, but for a complete cycle it is not uncommon to have a series of between five and eight treatments.
