The LimeLight Facial is a medical grade, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with ageing and photodamage.
The Cutera LimeLight delivers a non-invasive light treatment that can be customized for different skin tones and aging skin conditions. The result is an exceptionally reliable skin rejuvenation treatment with minimal discomfort.
The handpiece used emits multiple wavelengths of light that are absorbed by pigment and blood vessels in the top layer of your skin to reduce pigmentation and promote a more even skin tone.
The Limelight Facial can be used for any areas on the face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Low contrast or light brown spots, which previously have been difficult to treat, respond very well to treatment
The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
Your practitioner can customize your Photofacial Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a tiny pinch or stinging sensation. Gel is recommended to cool the skin prior to vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.
Treatment time depends on the area being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour.
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun- damaged skin. Many patients have a regular treatment as part of their beauty regime, or you can supplement the photofacial with peels, or other light based treatments as per the advice of your practitioner.
Immediately following your treatment, some brown spots may start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may also be mildly swollen. This typically lasts only few hours. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.
Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however they can also be treated in the same way. Remember to apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.
