LimeLight is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser procedure that offers a safe, noninvasive solution for the correction of benign skin conditions. Limelight can be tailored to your specific skin type. Photorejuvenation is the process of using light to improve the appearance of certain skin conditions and remove wrinkles brought on by aging. Intense pulsed light induces controlled wounds on the skin which prompts healing and the creation on new cells. The creation of new cells acts to reverse the effects of aging and leads to younger looking skin. Intense Pulsed Light treatments can improve the appearance of rosacea, redness, broken capillaries, sun damaged skin, brown spots, age spots, skin texture, and changes that occur to the skin due to exposure to the sun. The LimeLight treatments are ideal for any part of your face, neck, and décolleté with skin redness, tiny veins, or brown spots. Light brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to this treatment. One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin. Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen- this typically only last for a few hours. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness. Within a few weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade leaving you with a smoother, more even complexion.
Limelight can be used to treat:
- Sun damaged skin
- Red, brown, and age spots
- Facial veins
