IPL can be one of the most effective treatments for Telangiectasia, and is often used to treat the dilated capillaries which often appear as visible reddish or purple clusters. If your capillaries look ‘spidery’ or overly visible on your facial skin (often around the nose or on the cheeks) or décolleté , contact us to find out how light-based treatments can help you get your skin looking its best.

The LimeLight Facial is a light-based treatment for skin – helps reduce redness and uneven pigmentation
The LimeLight Facial is a non-invasive approach to treating benign pigmented and vascular lesions using Cutera’s LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage.
The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
The recommended number is typically 2 to 3 sessions (minimum) for good pigmentation reduction results. Other treatments for freckles, uneven skin tones, sun damage and wrinkles or redness may be more suitable depending on the patient or client’s needs.
What areas can be treated?
The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, hands, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) 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 will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Gel is used to cool the skin before vascular treatments. Anesthesia or pain medicine is not required.
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 I need?
One to three treatments four weeks apart are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be slightly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. 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 brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness 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 and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.
