Every person ages at a different rate and in different ways. Some develop redness, rosacea, age spots or sunspots. Others have large pores, fine lines and/or wrinkles. You may have one, two or all of these conditions. Cutera’s LimeLight™ IPL PHOTOFACIAL targets many of these signs of aging using state-of-the-art light-based technology.

How does IPL Photofacial work?

The intense-pulsed light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the epidermis and dermis of the skin. This light-based therapy targets brown discoloration, redness of rosacea and capillaries. LimeLight™ IPL also stimulates the fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin leading to healthier, more vibrant skin.

What does it treat?

LimeLight™ IPL is ideal at improving skin tone, sun damage, redness and rosacea that is associated with aging and photo damaged skin.

Who can be treated?

Everyone can benefit from LimeLight™ IPL treatment. However, those who have darker skin or are tanned can not be treated.

What areas can be treated?

The most common areas for treatment are the face, neck & chest. Any part of the body can be treated safely.

What do the treatments feel like?

The LimeLight™ IPL delivers a series of pulses of light. When each pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a very brief mild to moderate pinching or stinging sensation. No topical anesthesia or numbing cream is required.

How many treatments will I need?

Each treatment regimen is different and customized to an individual’s needs and skin concerns. Typically we suggest a package of 3- 4 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effects are slight redness and/or swelling that usually disappear within a few hours. Sunspots and sun damage will usually get darker immediately after your treatment. This darkening is considered a good response to treatment. The sunspots will slowly disintegrate and/or flake off over 7-10 days.

When will I see results?

Typically, you will see results in 1-2 weeks and improvements in the health and vitality of your skin will continue with each treatment. We recommend maintenance treatments at less frequent intervals to maintain benefits and correct additional skin lesions due to aging, sun damage and rosacea.
