What Is Limelight, and How Does It Work?

Limelight by Cutera represents the next evolution in Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, specifically designed to treat sun damage, brown spots, freckles, and skin redness with unprecedented success. Unlike traditional IPL systems, Limelight offers the flexibility to be customized for the specific skin condition being targeted, making it highly effective for improving or eliminating issues that affect skin tone and texture. This technology is particularly beneficial for individuals with light-complexioned skin prone to freckling and redness, as well as for treating the mottled, weathered appearance often seen on the neck after years of sun exposure. With no required downtime following each session, patients typically undergo monthly treatments to achieve cumulative and long-lasting results, especially when complemented by ongoing sun protection and antioxidant therapy.

Benefits of IPL Photofacial

Fights Sun Damage

Ideal for treating sun-damaged skin, the IPL Photofacial breaks down dark pigmentation and stimulates collagen renewal, restoring a youthful complexion.

Acne and Scar Treatment

By reducing inflammation and destroying acne-causing bacteria, this treatment can significantly improve stubborn acne and reduce the appearance of scars.

Visible Vein Reduction

Efficient at absorbing into red blood cells, the IPL Photofacial effectively diminishes the appearance of visible veins and capillaries for an even skin tone.

Prevent Aging

Regular treatments can alter the structure of skin cells to delay signs of aging, keeping your skin looking youthful longer.

Versatile Application

Beyond facial rejuvenation, IPL can treat signs of aging on the neck, chest, hands, and more, offering a comprehensive solution to sun damage.

Complementary to Other Treatments

Combines well with non-surgical treatments like Botox® and fillers for a holistic approach to facial rejuvenation.
