LimeLight IPL is gentle, non-invasive, and safe. There is rarely any need for a topical anesthetic, but your provider may choose to use it on more sensitive areas.
An Adaptive Photofacial with LimeLight IPL in Kansas City
Often, incorporating photofacials into your long-term care plan can help us target age spots, freckles, redness, small vessels, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and more.
LimeLight IPL makes caring for your skin a snap. The great advantage LimeLight has over other IPL systems is its flexibility to tailor itself to the particular problem being addressed. The result is a versatile, popular treatment for tackling signs of aging, sun-induced, and genetic conditions that affect both skin tone and texture.
When you book a treatment for Limelight IPL with the Kansas City Skin & Cancer Center, your appointment will be preceded by an in-depth consultation to determine your needs. This allows us to discuss your skin type, your specific concerns, and the treatment area you’d like to address.

How It Works
Consultations are where the Kansas City Skin & Cancer Center team truly gets to know you. We’ll listen to your concerns, assess the current condition of your skin, and work with you to determine a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and budget.
How It Works
We will cleanse the treatment area and mark any areas your provider should avoid during treatment (a mole, permanent makeup, tattoos, etc.). Then we’ll put on protective eyewear, and our technician will apply a clear ultrasound gel to the treatment area to protect your skin.
How It Works
Targeted Laser Treatment
Your provider will apply the LimeLight applicator one zone to the next, thoroughly treating each area. On your face, for instance, your provider will shift the handpiece over your face, targeting the forehead, nose, upper lip, and then chin. The duration of this step will depend upon the areas being treated.
How it Works
Once the treatment is complete, your provider will remove your eyewear and ultrasound gel, and then apply post-care creams and sunscreen. We want to thoroughly protect your skin post-treatment. Once you’re done, we’ll have a follow-up discussion to review any additional concerns, questions, and post-care.
How it Works
Limelight IPL in Kansas City delivers visible, striking results for the majority of patients.

Common Questions About LimeLight IPL in Kansas City
The treatment area may appear red or flushed, which usually fades within a few hours. Within the next 8-10 days, any pigmented lesions will darken and gradually flake off. Individuals with prominent pigmentation may notice that brown areas become temporarily darker, peeling off in 11-15 days.
Your treated skin will likely feel smoother as your pores, fine lines, visible veins, and wrinkles become less prominent! However, it’s important to remember that results will vary depending on your skin’s condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated. Your clinician will provide complete information about the post-treatment care and results.
LimeLight is non-invasive and gentle, with virtually no necessary recovery time. Most patients can return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of their activities immediately after.
LimeLight IPL can treat any area of your body. At the Kansas City Skin & Cancer Center, the treatment is most commonly performed on the face, chest, and hands. It can take more than one treatment for highly sun-damaged skin to see full results.
