Red/Brown Spot Removal

Red and brown spots on the face are essentially sun damage.   Always have them checked by a dermatologist
 to ensure they
are not skin cancer.  To prevent more of them use sunscreen regularly. 


What can be done to treat them?
The LimeLight Facial is a new, non-invasive approach to treating benign pigmented and vascular lesions .  The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage.

What areas can be treated?
Ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with red or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.

What do treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered, patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is used to cool the skin before vascular treatments.

How long will the treatments take?
Treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However,  most treatments should take less than one hour.

How many treatments will be needed?
One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun damaged skin.

What to expect after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours  to a day. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.

When will I see results?
Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.

Will the spots and redness reappear over time?

New red or brown spots may appear with new sun damage;  however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots .
