Treatment of Skin Redness, Tiny Veins, Brown Spots and Sun Damage
IPL treatments are a non-invasive approach to skin revitalization using Cutera’s LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging, photo damage and redness. IPL stimulates collagen production and can help to rejuvenate your skin making it tighter and younger looking!
IPL is ideal for any part of your face, neck, décolleté, forearms and hands 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.
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated areas may be mildy swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Glo Minerals 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 too can be treated.
Remember to always 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.
Limelight Facial falls under the treatments known as Intense Pulsed Light, IPL, Photorejuvenation, or Photofacial.
Conditions treated: Rosacea, diffused redness, flushing, pigmentation, brown spots, age spots, sun damaged skin, tiny veins, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars
