The LimeLight™ treatment is a non-intrusive way to treat skin imperfections connected with aging and photo damage. Some common examples of these imperfections are skin redness, tiny veins, brown spots, and sun damage.
Any area of the face, neck, and décolleté with these imperfections can be treated. Even light brown spots that used to be difficult to treat now respond to this treatment. LimeLight treatments are customizable to your skin type, and you select the pigmented areas to be treated. The light from the treatment heats the pigmented brown or red cells.
What to Expect
Treatments are typically described as a mild pinch or sting. Anesthesia or pain medication is not usually needed, but gel is recommended to cool the skin prior to vascular treatments. Depending on the area of the body, treatments take less than an hour. To see satisfactory results, one to three treatments are recommended. If you have excessively sun-damaged skin, then more treatments may be required.
Right after treatment your brown spots will begin to darken and your skin may look lightly reddish and swollen. After a few hours, a day at the most, these symptoms will subside and you can apply makeup to cover the redness. After about one to three weeks after your treatment, the dark spots will flake and fade.
If you are exposed to more sun damage, you still may develop new brown spots or diffuse redness. These areas can be treated; however, it is important to always wear sunscreen when outdoors to minimize this sun damage in the future.
