Limelight Facial

Treatment of Skin Redness, Tiny Veins, Brown Spots and Sun Damage. The result is an exceptionally effective skin rejuvenation treatment with minimal discomfort and social down time!

What is the LimeLight Facial?

The LimeLight Facial is a non -invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using Cutera's Limeight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photo damage.

What areas can be treated?

The LimeLight is ideal for any part of your face, neck and decollete with skin redness, telangiectasia ( Tiny Veins) or brown spots.

What does the treatment do?

Our Nurses customize your LimeLight to your skin type and after taking a full medical history including medications you may be on. The Nurse will 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.

What do treatments fee like?

When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. A cooling gel is applied to cool the skin and for comfort. We offer topical Anesthesia to reduce any discomfort but this is not always necessary.

How long will the treatment take?

Treatment time depends on the area being treated, however most treatments should take approximately 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. A treatment plan and customized package can be discussed at your initial consultation.

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 a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.

When do I see results?

Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will look more even and creamy.

Will the spots and redness reappear over time?

New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply a good sunscreen ( available to you at our clinic) when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Our clinic has specific skin care to inhibit melanin production as well as lighten and brighten the skin so following treatments you can continue with home care to get long lasting results and prevention of sun damage. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be "cured" with any laser, however its appearance can be improved.
