LimeLight treatments from Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center provide the residents of Pasadena and Los Angeles, CA, with effective methods for treating their vascular and pigmented lesions. Problems with your circulatory system may cause the small vessels under your skin to weaken and swell. The swollen vessels create redness and fine, web-like lines, known as spider veins, on the surface of your skin. LimeLight treatments close the weakened vessels, allowing the body to re-route the blood through healthier vessels. If you have pigmentation lesions, or dark patches, on your skin, LimeLight treatments break up the melanin in your skin. The melanin is then naturally absorbed by the body.

Many people in Pasadena and Los Angeles, CA are embarrassed by their skin because they have spider veins or small areas of dark pigmentation.

What happens during the LimeLight treatment at Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center?

During the treatment, Dr. Rigor uses a small, handheld device to deliver the laser energy in short bursts, targeting the unhealthy veins and dark patches. As Dr. Rigor administers the bursts of laser energy to the treatment area; you may experience a mild sensation that is similar to a small pinch.
