The Cutera Limelight can be used to treat skin redness, small veins, tiny broken capillaries, brown skin spots and sun-damaged skin. The Limelight procedure improves skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage. Limelight is a relatively new, non-invasive light-based treatment that can be customised for different skin tones and aging skin conditions.

Limelight treatment works by penetrating the outer layers of the skin. The light source absorbs the affected cells in the damaged areas of the skin. Your body will then grow new and healthy cells to replace the damaged ones, leaving skin looking revitalised.


Limelight treatments are ideal for treating the face, neck, décolletage and hands on areas that have been affected by skin imperfections.


Who is the treatment for?

Individuals concerned with redness, hyperpigmentation, ageing, sun damage and imperfections of the skin. Limelight is not suitable for every skin type, so a consultation is recommended prior to treatment.

How does it feel?

Everyone’s pain threshold is different. Most client’s experience minimal discomfort with this treatment. The treatment can feel like a warm flicking sensation or a mild sting. Heat like a mild sunburn can be felt for 20-60 minutes after the treatment.

Is there downtime?

Immediately following the treatment, most people can expect redness over the treated area, occasionally with some mild swelling. The darker pigment spots darken over the first 12 hrs and can look like a superficial ‘gravel rash’, although it feels like normal skin, and there are no ‘wounds’ to the skin. The darkened spots flake off and fade over one to three weeks, depending on the area. Superficial redness or capillaries can fade instantly after the treatment.

When will I see a result?

Usually 2-4 weeks post treatment. We typically recommend at least two to three treatments for optimal results. Additional treatments may be recommended, depending on the extent of the damaged skin and client’s concerns.
