What Does it Treat?

Cutera Xeo Laser therapy is an effective treatment that will help eliminate wrinkles and fine lines and make you look younger by improving your skin’s elasticity, making any scars you have less visible, rebuilding broken capillaries, treating rosacea, and diffusing redness in the skin.

Is it Safe?

The procedure doesn’t require incisions and passes the most stringent safety requirements. With every session, there is a visible reduction in the amount of scarring and fine lines. Laser Genesis is a safe and effective method to undo the damage the skin accumulates over time.

Given the advanced technology that powers the treatment, the procedure can be done comfortably without the application of any anesthetic agent.

Services Offered

Laser Genesis Skin Revitalization

Laser Genesis therapy can help restore your skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven texture caused by aging, sun damage, or scars. You will see a reduction in pore size, reduction of minor imperfections, and an overall healthier complexion. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic. The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes laser technology to safely, discreetly, and effectively treat uneven skin texture, scars, large pores, and diffuse skin redness. It is a comfortable, non-ablative, and non-invasive form of skin therapy. There are no unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Your treatment can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of general or local anesthesia.

This laser treatment is effective for all skin types anywhere on the body and combines well with other procedures, like chemical peels, facials, and RF skin tightening. There is virtually no downtime. The treatment is mild enough to require no topic anesthetic.

The benefits of Laser Genesis treatments accumulate with each treatment. Multiple sessions may be required to reach your aesthetic goals. Typically between 4-6 treatments, scheduled 1-2 weeks apart are recommended. You’ll immediately experience brighter skin, reduced redness and pore size, and lines and wrinkles will smooth away. Acne breakouts will diminish and inflammation will improve.

What does the procedure feel like?

Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about an inch above your skin. You can expect to return to normal daily activities with the use of sunscreen for any outdoor activities.

What are the possible side effects?

Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours after the treatment. The doctor will discuss the benefits, risks, and alternatives of the treatment with you beforehand.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal uses a laser to remove unwanted hair by damaging the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. 6-8 sessions are recommended for optimal results. Full legs, full back, chest + abdomen are considered an extra-large treatment area. The lower legs, full arm, chest, abdomen, upper or lower back, and buttocks are considered to be a large treatment area. The underarm, bikini area, lower+ upper face, neck front and back, abdomen between the belly button and the bikini line, full hands or feet are all considered to be a medium area. The lip, chin, sideburns, fingers, toes, ears, and nose would be considered a small area in terms of treatment. Treatment time varies depending on the size of the treatment area and the need for topical anesthetic.

What Are The Phases Of Hair Growth?

Hair strands grow from hair follicles in your skin. At the base of each follicle is a living bulb, which contains active cells that divide and grow to create hair. Blood vessels bring nourishment to the bulb and deliver hormones that impact hair growth. Between starting to grow and falling out, each strand progresses through four stages. Understanding the natural hair growth cycle helps explain how laser hair removal works.

Anagen Phase

This is the active phase of hair growth. During the anagen phase, your hair grows as the cells in the bulb at the root of the hair divide rapidly. Each strand is in the anagen phase for two to seven years, making this is the longest-lasting period of the growth cycle. At any time, about 90% of your hairs are in the anagen phase.

Catagen Phase

In this transitional phase, hair growth slows as follicles shrink. Hair strands disconnect from their blood supply and the cells that produce new hair, becoming dormant. The catagen phase lasts approximately 10 days. Only about 5% of your hairs are in this phase at any given time.

Telogen Phase

The telogen phase is a resting period. During this stage of the cycle, the hair follicle is entirely inactive and no longer growing. The follicle typically remains dormant for around three months before the cycle begins again. An estimated 10-15% of your hairs are in this phase at the same time.

Exogen Phase

Shedding occurs in the final step of the cycle. At the end of the resting period, also known as the exogen phase, the hair gradually detaches from the follicle and falls out. The average person loses 50-100 hair strands each day.

Each hair follicle operates independently and progresses through the growth cycle at different times. If it didn’t work that way, all your hair would fall out at once! This impacts laser hair removal in two key ways.

First, laser hair removal treatments are most effective on hairs that are in the anagen phase. Because it is highly unlikely that every hair treated on a given day will be in the anagen phase, multiple treatments are needed to ensure every hair in the selected area is reached during the optimal stage of its growth cycle.

Second, hair growth cycles vary for different people and on different parts of the body. The optimal number of laser hair removal treatments for you may not be the same as the optimal number of treatments for someone else.

IPL Photofacial Treatment

An IPL Photofacial is an ideal treatment for skin care concerns ranging from redness, light acne scars, and rosacea to broken capillaries and hyperpigmentation. IPL Photofacial involves a non-ablative laser that has been carefully calibrated to seek out specific pigments in the skin – redness, darker discolored patches, or dark spots from acne scarring. The actual IPL Photofacial procedure feels like the mild snapping of rubber bands against the skin’s surface. With each snap, the IPL Photofacial penetrates deep below the skin’s surface to treat the issues at the source. For successful elimination of redness, sunspots, and old acne scars, a patient will likely require multiple IPL Photofacial treatments. The Photofacial can truly create a marked difference in the patient’s skin over time since the skin continues to improve for weeks after the actual IPL treatment.

Immediately following an IPL Photofacial, a patient is free to resume his or her daily activities. Each IPL Photofacial treatment is conveniently quick and takes only about fifteen to twenty minutes from start to finish. For this reason, many patients seamlessly integrate their IPL Photofacial into their lives by getting treatments during their lunch hour. A brief period of facial redness is the most common side effect of the IPL Photofacial, although this can easily be covered up with liquid foundation, powder, or a concealer until the redness subsides, usually within an hour or so.

Two to four treatments are needed for optimum results. Some discoloration may be seen in the area immediately following the treatment. Within one to three weeks the lesion gradually flakes off.

Can It Be Combined With Other Treatments Or Procedures?

IPL can be combined with Laser Genesis, which targets any fine lines, scarring, acne, rosacea, and wrinkles.

How Many Treatments/Visits Are Recommended?

The number of treatments needed will vary amongst patients. It is recommended to repeat this treatment every 6 weeks, until the desired outcome.

When Will I See Results?

You will begin seeing results a few days after your treatment. The treated dark spots will start to get darker, and within 7-14 days, they will slough off.
