WHAT IS LIMELIGHT?
Limelight offers a safe, non-invasive solution for the correction of photo damage and aging that can be tailored to your specific skin type. Photo-rejuvenation is the process of using light to treat certain skin conditions and improve wrinkles brought on by aging. Intense pulsed light introduces controlled energy into the skin, which prompt healing and the creation of new cells, often times reversing the effects of aging.
HOW DOES LIMELIGHT WORK?
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, skin plumps, softening the appearance of hollow, 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 have little to no downtime, and clients report few side effects after the procedure, beyond mild swelling.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments will be discussed during your consultation and varies by individual. We recommend starting with a consultation with one of our skin experts to put together a treatment plan.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
The Limelight treatments are ideal for your face, neck, décolleté, backs of hands, and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of sun damage.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken, and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. Makeup 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. some clients will experience the swollenness for a few days. The treatment feeling is similar to your skin being snapped with a rubber band, but the sensation is temporary.
