IPL Limelight Facial Q & A

What are IPL LimeLight facials?

The IPL LimeLight facial technology by Cutera® uses intense pulse light to create even-toned, younger-looking, revitalized skin. The treatment’s energy beams consist of focused IPL that uses green light to target your skin’s tone and color. 

It’s highly effective for reducing common signs of aging, including photodamage. IPL LimeLight facials are painless, yet highly effective and long-lasting.


What are the benefits of IPL LimeLight facials?

The advantages you can expect when choosing IPL LimeLight facials at Flushing Medical Spa include:

  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Reduced age spots
  • Less redness
  • Reduced pore sizes
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Increased collagen production
  • Improved skin elasticity
  • Diminished visible veins
  • Reduced brown spots
  • Less sun damage

The treatment helps reduce just about any undesirable skin pigmentation issue you may develop because of aging or sun exposure.


Is an IPL LimeLight facial right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for an IPL LimeLight facial, your specialist examines your skin, reviews your medical history, and discusses your goals. They tailor a treatment that’s best suited for your unique needs and may suggest more than one type of anti-aging solution.


What happens during IPL LimeLight facials?

During each treatment, you rest comfortably and wear glasses to protect your eyes. Your provider cleans the treatment area and applies a cooling gel or numbing cream to maximize comfort. They then apply intense pulsed light to the treatment area. 

You might feel a brief pinching sensation similar to a rubber hand snapping, but IPL LimeLight facials are well-tolerated. The facials help improve the appearance of your face, décolleté, or neck.

The length of time each treatment lasts depends on the size of the areas treated, but it usually takes less than an hour. 


What should I expect after an IPL LimeLight facial?

After an IPL facial, you can expect treated skin to be swollen red like a mild sunburn. Dark spots often appear temporarily darker. Within 1-3 weeks, such darker spots fade and flake off.

Follow your post-care instructions to ensure optimal healing and exceptional revitalizing results, and protect your skin from the sunlight using protective clothing or sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater. 

Over time, treated tissues appear healthier, younger, and even-toned. Ideal results typically occur after 1-3 treatment sessions.
