Dr. Wright uses the Cutera laser exclusively and her IPL hand piece is called the limelight™. She is able to treat brown or red pigmented lesions on the face, neck, and de’collete’. Those bothersome tiny veins are easily treated as well. For some skin types, she can even treat the hands, chest, and arms; which often show our age. IPL stands for intense pulse light. The light is pulsed into the skin and pigmented lesions preferentially take up this energy and convert it to heat. The heat is what breaks up or damages the pigmented lesion and it is absorbed by the body. The procedure is fast and only uncomfortable, not painful.
