WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?

The LimeLight IPL treatment can be used for any part of your face, neck and décolleté́ with skin redness, telangiectasia (thread veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve often respond very well to treatment.

IPL limelight treatment

By selecting the appropriate settings, we can customise your LimeLight IPL treatment to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and red pigmented areas on your skin. The IPL works by heating the pigmented brown or red cells.

When the pulse of light is delivered, you will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation – this is normally very well tolerated. Normally, there is no need for anaesthetic creams or medicines.

The treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour.

One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin. Frequently, people will return for further treatments on an annual basis.

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.

Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or thread veins will decrease and your mottled complexion should improve. As stated above, some people will require several treatment sessions to achieve their desired outcome.

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.
