Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Cutera®’s LimeLight™ is a non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation. This procedure improves skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage.
What areas can be treated by LimeLight™?
LimeLight™ is ideal for treating any area of the body that has redness, telangiactasias (tiny veins) or brown spots. Some of the most popular areas for treatment are the face, neck, decollete (upper chest) and hands. However, many people also treat their arms, legs and upper back. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to this treatment.
What does the LimeLight™ treatment do?
By selecting different programs within the LimeLight™ laser, your technician can customize your treatment to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
What do the LimeLight™ treatments feel like?
When the pulse of light is delivered during your LimeLight treatment, patients experience a mild stinging sensation. Gel is usually used during the treatment to cool the skin and make the LimeLight more comfortable.
How many LimeLight™treatments will I need?
We recommend a series of 4 treatments for best results. Treatments are scheduled 3-4 weeks apart. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun damaged skin.
What happens after the LimeLight™ treatments?
Immediately following each treatment, brown spots may start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen for a few hours or even for a day. Over the three to five days immediately after the treatment, the brown spots may slough or peel. Makeup may be worn immediately after treatments, so the redness is usually easy to cover.
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
New brown spots, small veins, 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 the appearance of new damage. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source; however, its appearance will be much improved with LimeLight™ treatments.

Cutera® Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation
Cutera® Laser Genesis is one of the most popular new advances in cosmetic skin treatments. It gently heats the dermis to reduce fine lines and redness, and is used by both men and women to reduce acne scarring. It can also treat large pores and uneven skin texture, and has been proven to stimulate youth-enhancing collagen growth.
Laser Genesis is a multipurpose, all-season solution suitable for improving the overall health of all skin types. As a result, we often use it as a complement to other treatments.
While every patient’s needs vary, optimal results are often achieved with around five treatments that typically take 10 to 30 minutes each, depending on the amount of skin treated. Laser Genesis is a safe, painless experience that requires no downtime. It generally causes no side effects other than occasional slight flushing of the skin for a few hours after treatment.
