Skin irregularities such as scarring, discolored areas, and redness can cause you to feel that your natural beauty cannot shine. With the LimeLight IPL, you can turn back the clock on your skin to achieve a bright and youthful glow. This type of photo-facial treatment is available at Revive in Philadelphia, PA. Taking just 20 minutes per session and with results that can be enjoyed immediately, this revolutionary new treatment method will allow your inner beauty to shine the way you want it.
The LimeLight IPL is designed to treat imperfections in the skin on and around your face. Your face is typically the part of your body that is most affected by sun damage, and with the LimeLight IPL, you can quickly reverse the cost for younger, fresher looking skin. LimeLight is suitable for redness, sunspots, and blemishes that are caused as a result of being in the sun and can also be used on the arms, back, and legs.
By selecting Program A, B or C, your practitioner can customize your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and 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.
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is recommended to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.
Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should take less than one hour.
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin.
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 possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.
Within 1 to 3 weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
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 can not be “cured” with any laser or light source, however, its appearance can be improved.
