Limelight facial- Procedure, Advantages and Recovery

Your face is your most important asset.

It’s the first thing people see when they look at you, and it’s what they remember most about you. It’s also the most visible part of your body, so you want it to be as beautiful as possible—but what if you don’t have time to go in for regular facials? 

What is Limelight Facial?

The Limelight facial is a non-invasive procedure that uses light energy to treat the skin. The treatment works by stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers, which can improve the skin’s tone and texture. It also helps repair sun damage by reducing fine lines, dark spots, wrinkles and acne. 

The procedure has been used in dermatology practices for years but recently gained popularity with celebrities who endorse it as an alternative to invasive surgeries like facelifts or chemical peels.

Benefits of Limelight Facial

At first glance, a limelight facial may seem too expensive for your skincare budget. But once you consider the many benefits of this treatment, it becomes clear that it’s worth every penny. When combined with other therapies, such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels, the limelight results last much longer than other skin rejuvenation methods. 

Let’s take a closer look at what makes this treatment so unique:

Skin Rejuvenation

Skin rejuvenation is a process that can help to improve skin tone and texture. The procedure works on the surface of your skin, which has been affected by time or sun damage. The treatment helps to reduce the signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves the elasticity, firmness and overall appearance of your complexion.

The Limelight Facial uses a combination of LED light therapy and microdermabrasion to address multiple skincare concerns, from acne scars to enlarged pores or dullness caused by overexposure to sun exposure or pollution.

Impulse Therapy

The benefits of impulse therapy are worth mentioning. As you know, impulse therapy stimulates your skin through pressure points to improve circulation, stimulate collagen production and increase elasticity. The result is a radiant glow from within.

You may have wondered how impulse therapy works. You apply gentle pressure to specific areas on your face for three minutes at a time using a specialized tool called an impulse device (pictured below). This allows for immediate results that can last up to six months.

Skin Purification

Skin purification is a process that helps to remove impurities from the skin. This process can help improve the appearance of your skin, and what’s more, it can also make you feel better about yourself. 

There are many different products on the market explicitly designed for this purpose, so we’re going to take some time today to talk about some of them and why they can be so beneficial for those looking for an all-around great facial experience.

One of our favorite things about these facials is their ability to help with skin purification. The results will bring you renewed and refreshed, which might be precisely what you need after a long week at work or school.


Hyperpigmentation is when the skin becomes darker than its normal color. There are several causes, but it most often occurs due to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from sunlight or tanning beds. Other contributing factors include acne scars, freckles, and excessive sun exposure during childhood and pregnancy.

The best way to treat hyperpigmentation—and prevent it from happening again—is by wearing sunscreen daily and avoiding UV rays as much as possible. If you already have hyperpigmentation on your face or body, there are treatments available at our office that can lighten the dark areas while minimizing further discoloration.

Acne Treatment

If you’re wondering what limelight facials are, the answer is simple: they’re a facial treatment that uses light to help clear acne. Acne is a skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide and can cause scarring if left untreated. In this article, we’ll cover some basics about acne and how limelight facials work to treat it.

Post-care Instructions

After your treatment, follow these instructions to ensure that you get the most out of your new, radiant complexion:

  • Avoid sun exposure. This includes direct sunlight, tanning beds, and UV lamps at the gym or spa. It is ideal to wait at least two days before going outside to allow your skin to heal completely.
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking for 24 hours after having a Limelight facial treatment. Alcohol may cause bleeding in your skin due to its anticoagulant properties, making you more susceptible to bruising or discoloration from the laser itself (even if just a little).

Side Effects of Limelight Facial

Skin sensitivity.

Skin sensitivity is the most common side effect of a limelight facial. This condition is temporary and can be minimized by using a mild cleanser and moisturizer, avoiding harsh soaps and cleansers, and using SPF 30 or higher sunscreen daily.

Slight burning sensation.

Most people experience a slight burning sensation during the treatment, which is very common. You should take a topical anesthetic before your treatment or take ibuprofen about an hour beforehand. Also, applying ice packs for about 15 minutes immediately after your treatment can help reduce redness and swelling.

Redness and mild swelling.

  • Redness and mild swelling. These side effects are the most common and will go away within a few hours. If you experience redness or swelling, apply cold compresses to your face and take it easy on your skin for the rest of the day.
  • Dryness. Your skin may feel dry after a Limelight facial, especially if you have oily skin (which is prone to clogging). To help keep your pores clean and clear, apply a hydrating moisturizer like Aquaphor ointment every morning after cleansing to keep it hydrated throughout the day.


Limelight facial is a beautiful and effective treatment for acne. It is also safe and easy to perform at home. If you are thinking about getting one done, then do it.
