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 the Aspen/Springbank area of 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.
