IPL Sun Spot Removal
$225 per treatment per area
$50 for single spot
Palmetto Aesthetic Medicine uses the Cutera Limelight for sun spot removal. This non-invasive light treatment is used to reduce hyperpigmention associated with aging and sun damage.
Dr. Waddell can customize your Limelight treatment to your skin type in order to selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It is most effective on the face, but can also be used on the neck and chest.
We use cold packs to reduce discomfort during the treatment. Immediately following the treatment, the 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 and possibly 1-3 days. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness. Then within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness will decrease and your complexion will improve. New brown spots and redness may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated!
IPL cannot be done on dark skin colors or tanned skin.
