What is CUTERA® Limelight IPL?

The CUTERA® Limelight IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser treatment is a one-of-a-kind procedure that treats brown spots, acne scars, rosacea, and sun damage without damaging your skin. The IPL technology of CUTERA® Limelight is unique because three specific wavelengths can be used to seek out the target range of pigments in the skin. That allows your medical aesthetician to select different skin conditions for treatment, bringing uniformity to your complexion and even tightening pores. The result after even 1 session is a smoother, clearer, younger appearance.

You may notice discolorations and dark spots, tiny surface veins, or other imperfections that can’t be easily covered up with makeup. This safe and effective light therapy will let your inner beauty shine through, blemish-free!

Where can Limelight be used?

In Toronto, IPL photo facials are most renowned for the restoring effect they have as a facial treatment. They can brighten darkened skin due to scarring or excess melanin. However, the procedure is equally beneficial to turn back the hands of time and remove sunspots or age-related hyperpigmentation from the neck, upper chest, and even hands.

These areas are often neglected during sunscreen application, and skipped during traditional facial treatments, meaning they’re even more susceptible to premature ageing. If you’re embarrassed by UV damage that makes you appear older than you are, you can restore the even complexion of youth anywhere you suffer from sunspots and other discolouration.

How does Limelight work?

The Limelight laser is a unique, handheld device manufactured by Cutera that delivers specially calibrated pulses of light. The wavelengths of light are absorbed by the blood contained in small tangles of capillaries and by the darker pigments of brown freckles, which causes those target cells to heat up. The heat damages them without harming any healthy, surrounding skin. The body will naturally reabsorb or slough off those particular cells, revealing a more glowing and even complexion.

The procedure typically takes 20-30 minutes, during which a medical aesthetician applies the laser at a personalized setting for the skin condition you are having treated. The sensation of the treatment is like mild pinching, and you will feel some warmth, but patients don’t describe the process as painful at all. A cooling gel will be used by your medical professional in advance of the IPL treatment which balances the warmth from the laser and ensures your comfort.

What skin conditions can I treat with Cutera IPL?

The wavelengths of the Cutera Limelight can be adjusted for your session to improve unevenness in pigmentation with outstanding results. An IPL facial can be used to address:

  • Brown sun spots: For many men and women, the end of summer seems to reveal more than just one more year of sun damage. For many people, the long days tanning in their youth will catch up to them in their 30s and 40s, and the blemishes can take over fast. If you notice each fall that new brown sun spots crop up, a series of visits at our tranquil clinic will rejuvenate your skin and your spirit.
  • Facial redness: Do you struggle to find makeup in a shade that looks natural? Does your flushed colour lead others to ask if you are embarrassed or upset? Leave those difficult memories in the past and look forward to increased confidence and comfort in your skin once that pigmentation is corrected.
  • Blotchiness. Similar to facial redness, blotchy skin can become a source of social embarrassment, and it can negatively affect how you’re perceived no matter your mood. Your confidence and poise shine through when you invest in a series of IPL facials, for a smoother, even-toned complexion.
  • Spider veins. For patients with tiny visible veins on their face, IPL therapy is one option that may be recommended by our medical aestheticians. You can book a consultation to have one of our fantastic staff examine the number, size, and colour of the blood vessels you wish to treat. They can also assess the overall condition of your facial skin and explain the risks and benefits of different treatment options. Broken capillaries are common signs of ageing. Eliminate them fast and turn back the clock.
  • Freckles. Whether you have a few or many patches, if you don’t love them then we can treat them!
  • Rosacea. When it comes to larger areas of facial redness and flushing, familiar to patients who suffer from Rosacea, IPL treatments can effectively reduce redness and reveal a radiant complexion. Over time, symptoms may return as no laser or light-based devices can provide a cure for this chronic condition. However, reducing the symptoms with intense pulsed light can ease embarrassment many Rosacea sufferers deal with, and restore confidence.

Look young and healthy

Over the next 1-3 weeks after treatment, you’ll see any minor surface irritation completely resolve, and discolourations such as brown spots and freckles will naturally slough off. Many patients notice that some of their fine lines plump up and smooth out, due to the collagen production initiated by the Limelight laser. What a fantastic side effect! This incredible treatment will stimulate the natural, strengthening collagen you need to stay looking young and healthy.

Is there any downtime after this treatment?

Due to the fact the laser light waves are individualized and do not damage the skin’s surface, you’ll have no downtime after your IPL photo facial, you’ll leave our Toronto clinic as soon as you like and get right back to your day.

You will notice within a day or two after your appointment, any brown spots may appear darker. The procedure may leave the skin pink for the first few hours, and mild swelling is possible on sensitive skin. A calming cream to soothe the flushing will be provided, and you can hide any redness with makeup if you wish.

Makeup can work wonders for this brief period until your natural complexion begins to shine through with an even and healthy skin tone. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to make recommendations for quality, medical grade skin care including healthy, skin-loving makeup.

How many treatments are required?

When you book a consultation for an Toronto IPL photo facial, you’ll be warmly greeted by our staff and welcomed to our state-of-the-art cosmetic centre. We’re committed to making every visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible for each patient, whether it’s your first treatment or the hundredth time you’ve come to see us.

How many visits do I need to make?

For Limelight sessions, the total number of visits depends on the severity of the condition being addressed. In most cases, a series of 2-3 appointments will be planned. If your medical aesthetician feels you would benefit from more, they’ll explain which areas need extra attention and answer any questions you have.

In most treatment plans, visits will be booked about four weeks apart. That allows time for your skin to recover and ensures that each treatment targets pigmented cells that require further therapy. Results and healing vary by patient, but within 1-3 weeks you will see a stunning difference in your complexion as you watch the darkened spots flake off and fade to reveal permanently lighter and more even skin.
