Skin Rejuvenation–Photorejuvenation IPL
(IPL) Intense Pulsed Light Photorejuvenation is a skin treatment that uses lasers, intense pulsed light, or photodynamic therapy to treat skin conditions and remove effects of photoaging such as wrinkles, spots, and textures.
IPL Photorejuvenation can treat a wide variety of skin problems. It can be used to remove red spots or diffuse redness and can help with acne or rosacea. IP treatments can also help to smooth uneven skin texture, close large pores, and eliminate wrinkles by stimulating collagen growth.
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 effective skin revitalization treatment with minimal discomfort. LimeLight Facial is a treatment of skin redness, tiny veins, brown spots and sun damage.
What areas can be treated?
The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, hands, neck and decollete 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.
What do treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is used to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is not required.
How many treatments will I need?
Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour. One to three treatments four weeks apart 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. Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be slightly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours, however it may last up to 2 days. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.
