Well, it is officially the end of summer! As the leaves turn beautiful colors and begin to fall, I look in the mirror and see the pigmentation due to my fantastic summer. This means one thing; time to start a Limelight photofacial series.
Limelight is an intense pulse light treatment that treats the brown spots caused by sun damage, facial redness ,and in some cases tiny veins. After customizing the treatment for your specific skin care needs, the Limelight will heat up the brown or red cells, then over a period of 1-3 weeks the brown spots will slough off and redness will reduce. Another positive benefit of Limelight is the stimulation of collagen production. This may lead you to notice some fine lines plump up. In most cases, Limelight is done in a series of 2-4 treatments, depending on the condition that needs to be treated. The treatment feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin. For a couple of hours post treatment you will experience some mild redness. We apply a calming cream so the redness does not last long. Since Limelight is a non-ablative treatment, you can put your makeup on and go back to your day without any downtime.
Limelight is one of my favorite treatments to do because it is highly effective. In fact, I consider it to be the most effective treatment for controlling pigmentation due to sun exposure. Of course, every good clinical treatment is only made better by the products you use at home. A great support product for Limelight is SkinMedica Lytera for controlling the over production of pigmented cells and redness.
