The LimeLight laser treatment is a new, non-invasive approach to treating benign pigmented and vascular lesions using new LimeLight technology. If you not only have brown pigmented sun damage but diffuse redness as well, then this laser treatment may be for you!
What areas can be treated?
The LimeLight is ideal for any part of your face, neck and chest with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve with the FotoFacial (IPL), respond very well to this new laser.
What does the treatment do?
By selecting Program A, B or C, your clinician can customize your LimeLight laser treatment to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
What do the treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, you will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.
How long will the treatments take?
Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments will take around 30 minutes.
How many treatments will I need?
Two to three treatments are usually sufficient to see optimal results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun damaged skin.
What happens after the treatment?
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 anywhere from a few hours to several days. Mineral 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 telangiectasia will decrease and the mottled complexion will improve.
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
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.
