Lime Light Photo Facials
About Lime Light Photo Facials
The Cutera Lime Light Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation which delivers a light treatment that can be customized for different skin tones and aging skin conditions. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photo damage. Dr. Desai will customize your Lime Light Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect. The result is an exceptionally effective skin rejuvenation treatment with minimal discomfort.
How it Works & Treatment Sensation
A pulse of light is delivered to the skin. The heating of the brown or red cells from the pulse will cause the brown spots to fade or flake off and/or decrease diffuse redness, ultimately improving your complexion. Patients will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation; however, anesthesia or pain medicine is typically not required.

|What areas can be treated?||The Lime Light Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment. Legs, arms, and back areas can also be treated.|
|How many treatments will I need?||One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun damaged skin.|
|When will I see results?||Treatment results take 1-3 weeks. Sun damage will flake and peel off of skin to reveal a fresh unpigmented layer of skin!|
|How much down time is required for healing?||Following the treatment, most patients can return to your normal activities right away. Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.|
