HOW DOES IT WORK?
Using light therapy to target abnormal red and brown pigment in the upper layer of the skin (epidermis), LimeLight PhotoFacial leaves behind a smooth, even skin tone. For small dilated blood vessels (telangiectasia), rosacea, the treatment selectively targets abnormal blood vessels that are the cause the problem, resulting in clear, calm skin. The benefits of the procedure begin to emerge two to three weeks after the initial treatment, with maximal results apparent after a month.
