LimeLight Facial

LimeLight Facial is a new non-surgical procedure for skin rejuvenation. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections caused by aging, acne, pigmentation and sun damage.


What areas can be treated?

The LimeLight Facial is ideally useful for treating acne, brown spots, freckles, pigmentation, sun spots, superficial melasma, age spots, redness, and telangiectasia (tiny veins) on any part of your face, neck and decollete. The rigid brown spots and red areas, which were previously difficult to treat, respond very well to this treatment.




Treating low contrast pigmentation has always been a clinical challenge. While normal IPLs, when used by dermatologists, can treat high contrast pigmentation, their ability to treat low contrast pigmentation is limited. The LimeLight Facial can treat both effectively. It also treats dyschromia including solar lentigenes and some vascular conditions such as telangiectasia, rosacea, redness and large pores.

What does the treatment do?

The LimeLight Facial procedure can be customized to your skin type to selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the brown or red pigmented cells that causes the therapeutic effect.


What do treatments feel like?

When the pulse of light is delivered, patients may experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. This can be reduced with the application of gel. 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 should take less than an hour.


How many treatments will I need?

Normally, one to three treatments are sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin.


What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may become mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.


When will I see results?

Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffused redness or telangiectasias will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.


What precautions do I need to take?

When outdoors, remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen. This will minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots, and diffuse redness.
