At Radiance Wellness & Aesthetics, we’ve partnered with Cutera, Inc. to offer LimeLight Intense Pulse Light (IPL). Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo-rejuvenation is indicated for the correction of many skin conditions without down time.
A cooling tip is applied to the skin’s surface. The LimeLight device produces a bright beam of light that heats up the skin and is absorbed into the underlying layers of the skin where new collagen is stimulated to grow thus improving skin tone. This treatment also coagulates and removes dilated capillaries and brown spots on the skin without bruising.
All patients typically undergo a series of treatments. Treatments are normally spaced three weeks apart in the beginning, then every four months as a maintenance program.
●Mild to moderate inflammatory acne
● Stretch marks
● Liver or age spots
● Broken blood vessels/redness from rosacea
● Brown spots, also called liver or age spots
● Dark spots from hormonal changes
● Discolored skin
● Spider veins
● Uneven skin texture
Most commonly treated areas include the face, neck and chest; however, other popular areas include the back of the hands, arms, legs and even the back. You may return to normal activity immediately after the procedure.
The LimeLight device does not typically cause any pain or discomfort and anesthetics are not needed.
