Treatment of Brown Spots, Tiny Veins, Skin Redness, and Sun Damage with Cutera’s Limelight®
The Cutera LimeLight® delivers a non-invasive light treatment that can be customized for different skin tones and aging skin conditions. The result is an exceptionally effective skin rejuvenation treatment with minimal discomfort.
What is the LimeLight® Facial?
The LimeLight® Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using Cutera’s
LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface
imperfections associated with aging and photodamage.
What does the treatment do?
The LimeLight® Facial can be customized to your skin type and used to selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
What areas and conditions can be treated?
The LimeLight® Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin
redness, telangectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which
were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
What does the treatment feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging
sensation. Gel is used to cool the skin before vein treatments. 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.
How many treatments will I need?
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be
recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following this skin care treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear
slightly red. 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. Diffuse redness or telangectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
New brown spots, telangectasia 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. Additionally, there are many topical treatments to help with these conditions that may be appropriate for you.
