What is Photofacial/Limelight?
Intense Pulsed Light (or IPL) Photofacial/Limelight treatments use lasers to treat broken capillaries, brown spots, rosacea, and/or discolorations on the skin caused by sun damage or by other sources.
What does it do?
IPL Limelight treatments induce the body to produce collagen which can improve the appearance of fine lines, pores, and also make the skin appear tighter and smoother.
How does it work?
The laser, using high-intensity light, penetrates below the surface of the skin to zap broken capillaries and brown spots. Once the skin has time to heal, the treated area will become smoother and more toned with less visible pigmentation and broken capillaries.
IPL Photofacial/Limelight treatments can be used on any part of the face, neck, or décolleté where brown spots, tiny veins, or skin redness is present. The IPL Photofacial/Limelight treatment will be customized to your skin type and you will only experience a very mild or slight stinging sensation during your treatment.
Most IPL Photofacial/Limelight treatments take about one hour, and one to three treatments should be enough to see good results. It usually takes between one to three weeks to see the results, and in the interim period you may experience some redness in the treated areas along with any treated brown spots darkening and shedding skin cells. The redness and flaking will dissipate and smoother, unblemished skin will gradually appear.
