Is there downtime?
Yes – your pigmented spots will become darker over the course of 24 hours post treatment and this often lasts up to 1 week. For the following week post Limelight your darkened spots will slowly slough off the skin. Makeup can be worn the following day, however we often find the spots can still be seen through the makeup.
How many treatments are required?
A series of 4 – 6 treatments should be performed about 2 – 4 weeks apart. Once the pigmentation has been removed we recommend an annual touch up of 1 -2 treatments throughout the Winter.
How long will the results last?
Results can last up to 2 years depending on your lifestyle. For people who spend a lot of time outdoors, the results may not last as long. The annual touch up’s will prevent the pigment from worsening over the Summer months. SPF and hats are always recommended when having this procedure performed – the less sun exposure the longer your results will last.
