Last summer’s glowing skin from days spent lazing in the sun would have left you feeling more attractive, happy and confident. Skip forward a few months, as the glow fades, the evidence of all that glorious sun worshipping has left behind it’s unpleasant mark. Basking in the unforgiving Queensland sun can lead to the development of dreaded sun spots and considerably older looking skin. Before this summer hits, step into the limelight with Allure Cosmetic Centre, Toowoomba, for a treatment that will leave your skin rejuvenated and your confidence sky high.
Limelight pigmentation: the laser treatment.
A very popular all in one facial procedure, Limelight is an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment that delivers a non-invasive light treatment to reverse unwanted skin pigmentation. Limelight has the unique ability to treat several issues like redness, sun spots, large pores, and tiny veins. It is the technique of choice for the removal of lighter brown sun spots. Unlike other treatments Limelight can be used on all skin tones. Perfect for red and brown skin discolouration. Limelight works by heating vessels or pigmented areas (sun spots) that causes a response, which eliminates the surface imperfections. Limelight treatment with the qualified and experienced team at Allure Cosmetic Clinic is an exceptionally effective skin rejuvenation option with minimal discomfort.
A quick science lesson.
The Limelight laser combines the benefits of three distinct light based devices into one solution with a wavelength range of 520 – 1100nm. This range of wavelengths allows for both haemoglobin (red) and melanin (brown) absorption. Limelight serves as a very effective means of correcting conditions of this (red and brown) type, and the precise tuning options incorporated into the device make it superior to other IPL offerings and ideal for any part of the face.
How does it work and how much does it hurt?
In your consultations with the Allure Cosmetic Clinic skin rejuvenation team you can ask all the questions you like to determine the most effective skin rejuvenation options available. Conveniently, Limelight treatments usually take only 15 to 20 minutes. The number of treatments required will be determined by the extent of skin damage and the desired result; most will see results in 1 to 3 treatments. Your experienced Allure practitioner can customise the Limelight to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
During treatment when the pulse of light is delivered, you will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Patients may request a numbing cream and your laser technician will advise if it is appropriate.
What can I expect after?
Immediately after the treatment, brown spots will begin to darken and skin may appear slightly red and swollen. This may last 1 to 2 days. Within 1 to 3 weeks the brown spots will begin to flake off and redness will decrease, leaving skin clearer, smoother, and softer.
Is it permanent perfection?
Now you have banished the brown spots, what’s next? To maximise the longevity of Limelight treatments it is imperative that you incorporate sun protection into your daily beauty routine. Sun damage caused the pigmentation dramas in the first place and it will do it again. It is too easy these days to wear an SPF protective cream with most daily facial creams on the market now providing UV protection. Remember to aim high with the SPF factor. New brown spots, spider veins and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage.
