Everyone wants to look their best, and patients who want to improve their skin tone and texture while addressing areas of aging and sun damage are encouraged to speak to their Arlington area dermatologist about the LimeLight facial.
The LimeLight facial is a non-invasive procedure that can greatly improve the skin. Photodamage, signs of aging, and skin tone are all improved. Limelight can be used on areas such as the face, neck, and décolleté to address:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun spots
- Skin redness
- Tiny facial veins
The Cutera LimeLight facial uses IPL (intense pulsed light). The light helps stimulate the healing process to reduce the pigmentation concerns on the skin. Most patients find the procedure relatively comfortable and will not need anesthesia or pain medications, though a cooling gel may be used during the treatment for enhanced comfort. The amount of time needed to treat the skin will depend on the size of the areas being addressed, but in most instances, sessions are less than an hour.
In order for patients to see significant improvement, they may need more than one appointment. Some patients benefit from anywhere from one to three treatments depending on how their skin reacts to the procedure. The results seen from one treatment will be noticeable after a few weeks as the pigmented spots will flake off of the skin and more youthful skin will appear from underneath.
Patients are encouraged to schedule a consultation visit beforehand to determine if the LimeLight facial is best for their specific needs or if other solutions may be available to provide similar or better results. This can be done during the initial consultation appointment when the dermatologist is performing the initial evaluation. Depending on the severity or location of the skin, he may suggest other options if patients so desire to consider them.
