CUTERA LASER TREATMENTS

 

Laser Treatments

A consultation is required prior to all laser procedures. Your consultation will include an evaluation to determine what, if any, procedure(s) you are a candidate and discussion of associated risks, contraindications, and realistic expectations or potential benefits. Pricing of your procedure(s) will be determined based on your individual needs during your consultation.

 

Titan™ Skin Tightening—The Titan™ is an aperture of our Cutera laser that promotes skin tightening through the use of infrared light. Infrared light has had a multitude of modalities in medicine for over thirty years while being proven safe and effective. The infrared light used in the Titan™ produces heat which penetrates into the deep layer of the skin while the surface is protected by cooling. This causes not only immediate tightening, but also stimulation of the production your own new collagen, which results in progressive tightening over the following six to eight weeks after the procedure. Since aging causes a depletion of collagen, the Titan™ is a great way to replenish your youth. The procedure is non-surgical, with no general anesthesia, and no down time. This procedure can be used to safely tighten sagging skin and/or provide a lift throughout the body including your face, neck, abdomen, arms, thighs, or breast. Although you may experience adequate results in one treatment, most see optimal improvement in three treatments a month apart with maintenance of one touch-up treatment every year.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)—(Also called photo facials) Non invasive laser light treatments that diminishes or removes external signs of aging, particularly hyperpigmentation as seen in age spots, sun spots, freckles, and other sun or chemical damage. Other benefits include improving redness, flushing skin, rosacea, uneven pigmentation, broken capillaries and very small veins. Not all skin types are treatable with this method and test patches will be required with a minimum of 30-minute to 72-hour evaluation prior to full treatment. Treatments are generally scheduled a month apart, usually three to six treatments for optimal results, although every patient varies. Anticipate seeing the pigmentation appearing darker (“peppering”) before resolving over the month. Sun exposure must be avoided 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after treatments, thus throughout the treatment and two weeks on either side of the series to minimize the risk of hyperpigmentation.

Hair Removal—Laser hair removal is one of the most common laser procedures presently used today. Our state-of-the art CoolGlide® laser delivers long-lasting hair removal on all skin types. The CoolGlide® laser can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, back, chest and bikini lines.The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depend on the area you want to remove hair from, your hair type, and other factors such as age, weight, hormones, diet, hair growth cycle.  It is for these reasons that the average treatment plans are planned with five treatments spaced appropriately for maximum hair reduction for that region’s hair growth. The laser does not “see” white, gray, very light hair and is less effective with fine hair. although a tanned person can be safely treated, sun exposure throughout the treatment series and two weeks before and after the series must be avoided to minimize risk of hyperpigmentation.

Genesis—Non-Ablative laser technology to safely, discretely, and effectively treat fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, uneven skin texture, telangiectatic vessels, and redness/rosacea, mild scars, enlarged pores, dull complexions.  The skin is gently heated with preferential targeting of fine structures. After each treatment you will see subtle, yet consistent and progressive results without side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation.Treatments are performed in a relaxed, comfortable environment without the use of topical anesthetics or gel. For best results, schedule a series of six treatments two to three weeks apart. Avoid sun exposure throughout treatment.

Vein Removal—Unsightly spider veins or reticular veins that may appear on the thighs, calves, ankles, or face can be removed or substantially reduced. Cherry hemangiomas and other vascular lesions can also be treated. for the lower extremities, whether intravascular injectables or laser is used, 40mm Hg compression hose are prescribed for maximum results. You measurements will be obtained during your consultation so that compression hose are available immediately after treatment. Sun exposure should be avoided throughout treatment process.
