What is the Cutera® Limelight Photofacial?
The Cutera® Limelight IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a Photofacial laser that targets brown spots and redness to effectively even your skin tone. As we age, imperfections occur in our skin due to sun damage and skin trauma. Limelight IPL is a powerful technology that uses a superior type of IPL to rejuvenate your skin.
At Midtown Med Spa, we use the Limelight IPL Photofacial on the face and neck for treating conditions such as:
- Uneven skin tone
- Brown spots
- Spider veins
- Redness from the sun and environmental damage
The Cutera® Limelight Photofacial uses a non-laser Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology. As the pulses of light pass through the skin’s surface, collagen production is stimulated and blood flow to broken capillaries is reduced. With the ability to deliver precise amounts of light to only the areas that need to be treated, pigments, redness and discoloured areas will diffuse as your skin regenerates, revealing a more youthful, brighter complexion.
