Eliminate sun spots with LimeLight

LimeLight skin rejuvenation is the ultimate treatment for controlling pigmentation due to sun exposure. A LimeLight facial helps to reverse the signs of sun damage on a superficial level by the use of broad-spectrum light that heats and destroys unwanted skin pigmentation.

If you’re tired of avoiding certain outfits due to the revealing neckline or sleeves, it’s time to consider going under the light with LimeLight.

What Is a LimeLight Facial?

LimeLight is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. This unique procedure offers improved skin tone, reduced skin redness, and reduction of brown spots on the surface of the skin. Whether your discoloration issues are associated with sun damage or skin aging, the treatment is ideal for the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. This laser treatment can be customized to your skin type and current skin condition. Treatments are performed quickly and can even be done over your lunch hour.

Skin redness, blood vessels, brown spots, or a combination of everything is no match for the LimeLight Facial.

Ideal Treatment Areas

The LimeLight Facial is ideal for treating any part of your face neck and decollete with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously thought to be unable to treat, respond very well to the LimeLight treatment process.

Unique Benefits of LimeLight Photo-Facials

After customizing the treatment for your specific skincare needs, the LimeLight will heat the brown or red cells on the surface of your skin. Then, over a period of 1-3 weeks, the brown spots will be sought off, and redness will reduce. One of the unique benefits of LimeLight is the stimulation of collagen production. Following treatment, you will begin to notice some fine lines begin to smooth. LimeLight is considered one of the most effective treatments for controlling skin pigmentation due to sun exposure.

What To Expect During Treatment

Your LimeLight Facial will be customized to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. While treatment plans will vary depending on the pigmentation being addressed, you can expect for your LimeLight treatment to follow these general guidelines:

What Will Treatments Feel Like?

The heating of the pigmented brown or red cells leads to the therapeutic effect. When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. A numbing gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments.

How Long Do Treatments Take?

Treatment time depends on the area of the body that is undergoing treatment. However, most treatments should take less than one hour to complete.

What Happens After 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 a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.

The LimeLight Facial Difference

Don’t shy away from wearing dresses or tops with certain necklines that you love because of embarrassing sun spots. With LimeLight, after only 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.

New sun damage may cause the symptoms to reappear, so take care of your skin by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen when spending time outdoors.
