This treatment is ideally suited for lighter skin types of any age over 18 desiring the above ‘Final Result’.
The ideal treatment to significantly complexion clarity, Limelight IPL is a medical grade, non-invasive light-based treatment for skin rejuvenation and can be used on any part of the face, neck and décolletage to tackle redness, tiny veins and brown spots. Light brown spots, which were previously difficult to treat, can also respond well to treatment. It can also be used to treat sun damaged skin, correcting discolouration and broken capillaries
At Aesthetic Health, we are able to customise therapies for specific skin types and skin issues using our range of laser wavelengths and devices, to simultaneously target haemoglobin (red) and melanin (brown)
Immediately following a Limelight treatment, brown spots will start to darken and skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be very mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours. 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 tiny veins will decrease and the mottled look of the complexion will improve.
This procedure is designed to be used on any part of your face, neck and décolletage where you may suffer from skin redness or brown spots.
By customising your treatment to your skin type we can treat specific issues, by heating the pigmented brown or red cells using accurately targeted laser energy.
Patients experience a mild pinching sensation. Gel and ice are used to cool the skin before and after each laser shot to improve comfort. Treatment should take less than one hour.
One to three treatments, a month apart, should be sufficient for results to show, however certain conditions, such as rosacea, may require more.
Within three weeks, the darkened spots flake off and fade while redness and mottled complexion will be noticeably improved.
During the treatment our experienced Practitioner will customise the Limelight to your skin type and areas of concern. A pulse of light is then delivered to the area to be treated which may cause a mild pinching sensation. The heating of the pigmented skin often creates a therapeutic effect. One to three treatments are usually required for the optimum result.
Immediately after the treatment brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. This will only last for a few hours and make up can be applied.
Within one to three weeks the darkened spots will flake off and fade, redness will fade and your mottled complexion will improve. Maintenance is not generally required, although Rosacea may need ongoing treatment. Successfully treated brown spots, veins and redness will not return, however new ones can develop with new sun damage, so application of a broad spectrum sunscreen is recommended.
Limelight is safer and more comfortable than many pulsed light devices because the tip that produces the light is cooled for comfort.
