Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (LimeLight Facial)

LimeLight Facial (IPL) in Dallas

The LimeLight Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin revitalization using Cutera’s LimeLight. The procedure treats skin redness, tiny veins, brown spots, and sun damage, and offers the benefits of improving the skin tone and surface imperfections that come with aging and photodamage.

The LimeLight is ideal for any part of your face, neck, and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to LimeLight Facial treatment.

Knox Dermatology can customize your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin by heating the pigmented brown or red cells.

When the pulses of light are delivered, patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required. Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated, however, most treatments take less than one hour.

Results typically start to appear after one to three treatments. Additional treatments may be recommended however, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin. 

Immediately following LimeLight Facial treatment, brown spots will start to darken, your skin may appear slightly red, and the treated area may be swollen. This typically lasts a few hours to a day, and makeup can be applied to cover the redness. Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will fade, diffuse redness will decrease, and your complexion will improve.

New brown spots, telangiectasia, and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage, however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.
