Treatment of Brown Spots, Sun Damage, Skin Redness and Tiny Veins
LimeLight or IPL is a non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photo damage.
The LimeLight Facial and Body Treatment is ideal for any part of your face, neck, decolette with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or unwanted pigmentation (“brown spots”, “age spots”). Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to this treatment.
Your Dermatologist can customize your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It is 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 mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Topical Anesthetic or pain medicine is typically not required.
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun damaged skin.
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. Treatments are done every 4 weeks.
