Limelight IPL Photofacial

A photofacial is a non-invasive treatment that harnesses intense pulsed light to target skin conditions like pigmentation, red blemishes, broken blood vessels, brown spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.


Intense pulsed light (IPL) is applied to the affected area, using a unique handheld device. The light will penetrate the outer layers of the skin and be absorbed by the target cell, causing injury to that specific cell. Your body’s immune system will then cleanse the injured cell/tissue and stimulate new cell growth. This new cell growth creates an improved skin tone, texture, and appearance. Most patients report minimal discomfort, no downtime, and satisfying results with Limelight IPL Photofacial. Multiple treatments of the IPL are recommended for optimal results - the exact number of procedures of the IPL are recommended for optimal results.


The Limelight IPL Photofacial targets brown spots, hyperpigmentation, lesions, vascular irregularities, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun damage.


To prepare for the treatment, you will be given eyewear to protect your eyes from the emission of light. A cooling gel is applied to the area that’s being treated. A series of pulses of light is briefly applied to the target area with a handheld device. Following the procedure, any unwanted pigment either darkens and flakes off or is absorbed by the lymphatic system.

Most patients consider the treatment to easy to tolerate and describe the pulses as a warming sensation or as a light snap from a rubber band.

The treatment is generally considered safe. However, redness swelling or bruising may temporarily occur.

IPL is a completely non-invasive procedure, which means that you can return to regular activity immediately following treatment. To maintain calm skin, it’s recommended that strenuous exercise be avoided for 24 hours.
