What is CUTERA® Limelight IPL?
The CUTERA® Limelight IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser treatment is a unique, non-ablative treatment that treats acne scars, rosacea, brown spots and sun damage. The IPL technology of the CUTERA® Limelight is different from other IPL technologies because it uses three specific wavelengths that can be adjusted to target different skin conditions. The laser is able to seek out specific pigments in the skin such as acne scarring and dark spots and tighten pores for a clearer complexion.
