Cutera Solera Limelight Facial
The LimeLight Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin revitalization. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage. This sophisticated treatment is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté 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.
What is the procedure?
After the consultation the therapist will prepare the area to be treated. You will be given eye protection to wear. A cold gel will be placed on the treatment area, the smooth glass surface of the IPL handpiece is placed on the area and you will be notified when the pulses will be applied.
What does the treatment do?
The LimeLight facial is a treatment that uses light to absorb haemoglobin (the red colour in your vessels) melanin and water. This light converts to heat, which damages the target cells without disrupting the skins surface.
What do treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation similar to a slight sting from a hot rubber band.
How many treatments will I need?
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended 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 a few hours and possible a day or longer. Makeup 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. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your 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.
