IPL/Limelight Laser Therapy for Skin Redness, Brown Spots, and Sun Damage
Our unique laser system utilizes non-invasive technology to safely treat fine-line wrinkles, skin redness (rosacea), brown spots, and sun damage.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Virtually any part of your body with uneven skin tone, diffuse redness, or sun and age spots can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders, and arms are the most popular areas for treatment because they have typically had the most sun exposure. Discrete brown spots, excessively ruddy complexions, and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to treatment.
What Does The Treatment Do?
The visible light delivered by the laser procedure is selectively absorbed by the pigmented spots and red areas on your skin. It is the heating of the pigmented cells that cause the therapeutic effect. By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, the laser genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
What Does The Treatment Feel Like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Typically, one or two treatments are sufficient to see dramatic results. Additional treatments may be required for very large or dark spots, densely freckled areas, or excessively sun-damaged skin. Every patient’s condition and needs very. Your skin care provider will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.
What Are The Possible Side Effects?
Although most patients report few, if any, side effects, the most common is slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment.
What Happens After The Treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, the brown spots may start to darken. You may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. This typically subsides within a couple of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off. Your mottled complexion will clear. The laser treatments can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage, or scars. You will see a creamier, healthy complexion, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
