Limelight (Pigmentation)

INTRODUCTION

Limelight (Pigmentation)

Cutera’s Limelight Facial is an innovative, non-invasive approach to revitalise skin with the advantage of improving skin tone, remove unwanted skin pigmentation and surface imperfections associated with aging and sun damage.

How does Limelight Facial work?

The Limelight Facial uses a computer-controlled handpiece to deliver wavelengths of light to the target skin, disrupting the underlying pigment cells and in return, reduce the appearance of skin pigmentation that can cause uneven skin tone and mottled skin.


How is LimeLight Facial different from other laser treatments?

Unlike most laser treatments, the Limelight Facial treatment can be customised to a specific skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on the skin. Both large areas and small spots can be treated.

Is Limelight Facial safe?

Yes, the Limelight Facial treatment is non-invasive and safe when completed by a qualified medical professional.

At The Lime Tree Clinic, our medical cosmetic team are well trained both internationally and locally with extensive knowledge to operate the Limelight Facial safely.


What are the treatment areas of Limelight Facial?

The Limelight Facial is commonly used on the face, neck, décolletage, arms and hands, but it can be used on any part of the body. It is particularly effective for people with light to medium skin tone.

The Limelight Facial is very effective at treating:
• Uneven skin tone and pigmentation
• Brown spots (freckles, solar lentigines, age spots)
• Telangiectasia, which appears as tiny blood vessels especially in sun exposed areas
• Redness including mild to moderate acne and rosacea


Limelight Facial aftercare

Immediately after the Limelight Facial treatment, you can return to your daily activities, including work and social obligations. You may experience some redness and mildly swollen skin after the treatment, but these symptoms are temporary and will gradually resolve within 1 to 2 days. The pigmentation in the treated areas will often become darker initially, this is temporary and is a good sign the treatment has worked well. Make up can be applied the next day. Sun avoidance is important immediately before and after treatment.

When can I see the treatment results and how long do they last for?

When I can see the treatment result and how long will it last for?

Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade, the pre-existing diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease. You will notice improvements to your skin complexion and clearer, brighter skin.

You may need multiple sessions of Limelight Facial to achieve optimum results that can last 6 months to a few years. Everyone’s result will vary, and this will depend on age, skin type, how long the pigmentation has been in the skin, the quality of the pigmentation and most importantly, your sun exposure.

Our qualified doctor will guide you on the appropriate number of treatments to achieve your desired results.
