This breakthrough technology uses a higher peak power that delivers up to 3 times more energy in the 500-600 nm range compared to other IPL devices on the market. Thus Lumecca™ IPL provides a stronger and better results for skin rejuvenation with fewer treatment sessions. Lumecca™ IPL is an ideal procedure to reduce sun damage, pigmentations, vascular lesions (e.g., spider veins and poikiloderma), rosacea, freckles, etc.


LimeLight™ IPL

Cutera LimeLight™ is a medical-grade IPL technology approved by both FDA and Health Canada for treating a number of skin imperfections. Limelight™ IPL uses an adjustable wavelength and specifically targets the superficial pigment in the epidermis. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage. It is ideal for treating any part of your face, neck, and décolletage with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins), brown spots, or sun damage, etc.

Cutera 2D skin rejuvenation

The Cutera 2D skin rejuvenation is one of our most popular treatments that combines Cutera LimeLight™ IPL and Cutera Laser Genesis™ treatments to address multiple skin concerns and stimulate collagen production. First, LimeLight™ IPL is applied to address imperfections on the surface of your skin. It helps diminish the appearance of sunspots, visible blood vessels, and other pigment irregularities. Then, Cutera’s Laser Genesis™ swoops in and goes deeper and gently heats the upper dermis to soften fine lines and wrinkles, shrink pores, and eliminate acne scars and redness. Laser Genesis also stimulates new collagen production to give your face a smoother, more youthful appearance.

    I have done 2 Cutera IPL treatments at Sunshine Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic and Medi Spa. My skin was much more even tone immediately after the treatments. Dr. Cathy Ding is so knowledgeable and professional. She will talk you through the process so you know exactly what to expect during the service and how to care for your skin afterwards. I am going to see Dr. Ding for my 3rd session next week and couldn't be more excited. I would 10/10 recommend this medical spa in a heartbeat.

    Review from Lisa David | Source: Google

    Staff here are very knowledgeable and helpful. It's my first time doing an IPL and I was a bit nervous. They're really great at communicating about what they're doing during the process and they regularly check if I was okay with everything. The environment is also relaxing so that helped to calm my nerves as well. Overall, I had a nice experience at the clinic.

    Review from Robin Sparkles | Source: Google

    Today did IPL. The customer service here is good. The nurse also have a great attitude. She will help with eye mask and hair net. During the process she will ask you if this energy is okay and then help you adjust it. After the treatment, skin tone is evened out and is brightened a lot. Hope that the follow-up on redness and shrinkage of pores will help.
