LimeLight IPL treatment has recently seized the spotlight as one of the laser-like treatments to watch out for. Able to work on excessively sun-damaged skin, mottled complexion, and even conditions like telangiectasia, this laser treatment promises to give patients the results that they want with minimal discomfort.
As part of her mission to bring the best in cosmetic medicine to her patients, Dr. Elena Reitman now provides LimeLight IPL Photofacial treatments. Suitable for surface imperfections and sun-damaged skin, a LimeLight Photofacial may just be the thing you need to look your best.
The LimeLight Photofacial works by using intense pulsed light (IPL) on the treated area, targeting areas with skin redness and dark spots. This laser skin treatment excels at treating conditions like rosacea, and excessively sun damaged skin, and can even treat fine lines and wrinkles in the skin by increasing collagen production.
A LimeLight facial can also work on other areas - it's typically applied on the neck or other areas around the upper body that experience plenty of sun damage. It's especially effective to diffuse redness on light-colored skin, which has typically been a problem for other types of laser treatments.
Laser treatments are just one of the many ways you can treat pigmentation and surface imperfections on your skin, so why choose this method in particular? Here are some reasons why IPL treatments may be the best option for you:
Unlike most laser therapies, IPL treatments work by sending different wavelengths of light. This allows this type of treatment to work on more types of pigmentation compared to other lasers, which can save you time and effort with the procedure.
Because of how IPL targets discolored spots, the final result from IPL treatments may look better compared to laser therapies with even skin tone. While additional treatments may be needed for complete results, you should be able to get the outcome you want with your initial treatments.
IPL treatments avoid harming or affecting other tissue in the treated area, even with additional treatments. This allows you to resume your normal activities sooner after IPL treatment. You might need some post-procedure aftercare, but they shouldn't get in the way of your normal routine. This is especially effective if your skin type is fair.
A: The final number is best left to your provider, but the rule of thumb is the more severe the damage/discoloration, the more treatments you need. On average, you need 4 to 6 treatments to see visible results.
A: LimeLight IPL treatments work extremely quickly since the light affects the dark skin during treatment. You can see some improvement immediately after your procedure, but the majority of your results will come in after 2 to 3 weeks.
A: LimeLight IPL treatments work well for treating any existing age spots - but sun damage, new brown spots, and skin redness may reappear. It is possible to get LimeLight IPL treatment again, but you should ask your provider for the best way to treat these conditions.
The LimeLight IPL Photofacial treatment is a great way to experience skin rejuvenation for cosmetic conditions that won't respond to other laser therapies.
