We offer Intense Pulsed Light Laser treating pigment using the latest technology available – programmable Limelight.

The limelight facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using Cutera’s Limelight application. This unique programmable Intensed Pulse Light (IPL) procedure offers the advantage of improving not only high contrast (dark) pigment but low contrast (lighter) pigment and also improves skin tone and surface imperfections associated with ageing and sun damage. Limelight is ideal for any part of the face, neck and décolletage for skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots and pigment.

Special programs are customised for skin types and for treating brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It is the heating of the pigmented browns or red cells that cause the therapeutic effect. Pulses of light deliver a mild pinching or stinging sensation but cooling gel is used to minimize discomfort. Anaesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.

One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Excessive sun damage may require more. Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. It lasts for a few hours but may persist for a day or longer. A week to three weeks later the darkened spots will flake off and fade. One treatment can give great results or a second one may be desired for optimal results. Makeup can be applied.
