skin rejuvenation

IPL Limelight is a non-invasive, light-based treatment that harnesses the power of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to revitalise skin and address various signs of ageing and sun damage. This advanced procedure utilises a specific combination of wavelengths (520nm-1100nm) to target both pigmented and vascular lesions effectively.

Cutera® IPL Limelight offers a safe and efficient solution for reducing the appearance of epidermal pigmented lesions such as solar lentigines (brown spots) and ephelides (freckles), as well as poikiloderma, vascular issues like capillaries (red/purple veins) and telangiectasia (diffused redness).

The treatment is customised to individual skin types, ensuring optimal results with minimal downtime, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a more youthful, even-toned complexion.

ipl limelight

who is ipl limelight for? 

  • Individuals with uneven skin tone or blemishes

  • Those with visible fine veins or rosacea 

  • People looking to reduce freckles or age spots 

  • Those with redness from dilated capillaries

  • Clients seeking to improve minor skin texture imperfections  

how does ipl limelight work? 

IPL Limelight employs a handheld device that emits controlled pulses of light into the upper dermis. These light pulses target specific pigmented and vascular areas, where the heat is absorbed by melanin and blood in tiny vessels. 

This process encourages a more even distribution of brown and red skin cells, resulting in a clearer, more uniform skin tone. The treatment is tailored by your clinician to ensure safe and effective results.
