IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments utilize advanced technology that is non-invasive to remove brown spots and sun spots anywhere on the face, hands, legs or elsewhere on the body.* It is also potentially effective for the treatment of melasma, red spots and rosacea.* At the Laser Aesthetic Center, we offer IPL treatments with Cutera’s LimeLight Facial™.

Treat Brown Spots and Sun Damage with Pulsed Light Treatments

IPL treatments may be administered to any part of your face, neck, upper chest or anywhere else on the body. While some IPL treatments are only successful for patients with light skin and dark spots, the LimeLight is also able to treat dark spots on darker skin tones, unlike other IPL technologies. It treats brown spots caused by sun damage.*

Post-treatment, patients often see a uniform skin tone and an overall improvement in surface imperfections.* IPL treatments not only manage existing spots, they can also remove deeper spots that are not visible yet, but if not treated, will become visible in the future as we age. In this way, the Limelight acts as a source of preventive treatment. For some patients, IPL treatments have also been found to help with melasma that is associated with post pregnancy.*

Important information for your IPL treatment:

  1. Our aestheticians will meet with you and evaluate your skin care needs prior to recommending IPL treatments. We will ensure that your skin is healthy and safe to treat.
  2. A thorough consultation will be done to ensure that you know what to expect pre, during and post procedure
  3. Treatment sessions typically last between 15 minutes to a half hour.
  4. Typically you will need 4 IPL treatments to achieve maximum results.*

How Intense Pulsed Light Treatments Treat Sun Damaged Skin

Hinsdale LimeLight Facial

The LimeLight’s various settings allow your aesthetician to personalize your treatment according to your skin type and tone. True to its name, an IPL treatment delivers short blasts of light to brown spots on the skin. The brown spots attract the laser light. As the pulse reaches the skin, patients will feel a mild sensation, but this is alleviated by the cooling tip on the hand piece.*

After treatment, the skin will be slightly pink, with the sun damage appearing darker. But within a few days, the spots may begin to flake off from your skin, fading from your complexion. The treatment goal is for sun damage to decrease, leaving your skin evenly toned. IPL treatments can also be effective on post pregnancy melasma.*

In order to learn more about whether the LimeLight can even out your skin tone by removing brown spots, schedule a consultation.
