What is IPL?
Cutera Limelight, among other IPL options is a very sophisticated form of Intense-Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. Typical improvements with IPL may be subtle, but in many cases that is all the patient needs to return to a state of healthy, glowing skin. More sun damaged skin will usually have a dramatic improvement. Sun exposure and aging can cause discoloration and broken capillaries, causing the skin to appear older or somewhat dull. Limelight serves as a very effective means of correcting conditions of this type, and the precise tuning options incorporated into the device make it superior to other IPL offerings.
Limelight is perfect for the patient with both red and brown discoloration. Limelight also treats discrete vessels versus the diffuse erythema.
