LimeLight facial treatments target the surface imperfections of the skin that are associated with aging and sun damage, such as redness, tiny veins, fine lines, and brown spots. This non-invasive procedure will improve the overall skin tone. Treatments are customized for different skin tones and aging skin concerns. The result is an exceptionally effective facial skin rejuvenation with minimal discomfort and no downtime.
What is the LimeLight Facial?
The LimeLight Facial is a non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using the Cutera laser system. The procedure improves the skin’s tone as well as the surface imperfections associated with aging and sun damage.
What areas can be treated?
The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté that requires the correction of redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
What does the treatment do?
Your physician can customize your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin.
What do the treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.
How long will the treatments take?
Treatment times vary, depending on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments take less than one hour.
How many treatments will I need?
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun damaged skin.
What happens after the treatment?
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 lasts only a few hours but can last a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.
When will I see results?
Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
New brown spots, tiny veins, and diffuse redness may appear with any new sun damage. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize future effects of the sun. Rosacea is a chronic condition and cannot be cured with any laser or light source; however, its appearance can be improved.
