LimeLight™ PhotoFacial Treatment for Even Skin Tone

For spider veins and sun spots.

Sun spots are also known as liver spots or age spots. They are the result of long-term exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Though sun spots are not symptomatic of disease they can affect the appearance and smoothness of one’s skin and are often accompanied by other types of sun damage such as rough skin and wrinkles.
Spider veins and facial redness can also be a result of sun and environmental damage and aging.
At Westside Laser & Light in SW Calgary, we can treat all of these inconsistencies in your skin’s appearance with the Limelight™ Photofacial treatment.  Limelight is a powerful and versatile technology that effectively evens your skin tone by targeting brown spots and/or redness.
The LimeLight™ device falls into a category of “laser” technology that is technically called IPL or Intense Pulsed Light. The LimeLight™ is a superior type of IPL using a flashlamp and incorporates additional technologies such as real-time calibration and integrated cooling to provide additional safety and comfort for our patients. An integrated contact cooling system ensures that your experience is safe and comfortable.
The LimeLight™ Photofacial treatment is effective on its own or as part of a complete and custom skin rejuvenation package. LimeLight™ is performed on the face, neck, décolleté and hands to even and balance skin tone.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is LimeLight?

The Limelight™ Facial is a new, non invasive approach to skin rejuvenation which can be customized for different skin tones and ageing skin conditions. The result is an exceptionally effective skin rejuvenation treatment with minimal discomfort.

What are the typical areas that are treated?

Limelight™ can be used on any sun damaged area of the body especially the face, neck, décolleté, hands, arms legs and back. Good candidates for this procedure are people with freckled, discolored, red, blotchy or brown spots, which were previously difficult to treat. In addition, this is a very effective treatment for the redness or dilated blood vessels and the flushing of Rosacea.

How does LimeLight™ work?

By selecting Program A, B or C, your treatment can be customized to your skin type and selectively treat the red or brown spots on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect. Immediately after the treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may be slightly red. Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. With the A pattern, diffuse redness or spider veins will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve. Rosacea is a chronic condition and cannot be cured; however its appearance can be improved. With the B pattern we are able to treat patients who have a combination of red and brown spots or blotches, and with the C pattern we are able to focus selectively on brown spots.

When should one start LimeLight™ rejuvenation?

As one ages, the skin’s texture and colour declines dramatically, and superficial veins and sun spots become evident. Now with the advent of photo rejuvenation devices, virtually any patient in their twenties or above can be a candidate for a little brightening of their skin.

Can LimeLight™ be combined with other treatments?

At Westside Laser & Light, the Limelight™ PhotoFacial is commonly performed as part of a skin rejuvenation treatment protocol that could include fractional lasers like Fraxel® Restore Dual and collagen-boosting treatments like the Exilis Ultra™ and Thermage™ treatments. Botox® and dermal fillers can be safely combined with Limelight™ and are usually done after a Limelight procedure.
