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 a patients face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots.
Dr. Jacobs can customize the LimeLight Facial to his patients' skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on the skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, patients will experience a mild pinching sensation. A gel is applied to cool the skin before treatments. . The duration of each treatment depends on the area of the body being treated.

Make-up can be applied to cover the redness. Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and mottled complexion will improve.
Three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for sun-damaged skin. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. A consultation with Dr. Jacobs will determine the best treatment regimine.
