Dermatological laser treatments for the face and body are some of the most popular cosmetic med spa treatments on the market. There are a variety of laser treatments to choose from, but usually they work by resurfacing the skin and reducing the look of skin imperfections.
Dr. Rachel Mason strongly recommends Cutera Xeo® in Spring Valley to many of our clients. This multi-application laser can treat a lot of skin issues including acne scarring, age spots, photodamage, angiomas, freckles, inflammatory active acne, hair removal, rosacea, scar reduction, veins, warts, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The Cutera Xeo® is a comfortable, non-invasive cosmetic dermatological laser treatment. It has several modes of treatment. The Laser Genesis does its magic by gently applying targeted heat to the middle layers of the skin, below the surface dermis using an advanced 1064nm ND:YAG wavelength laser. The Limelight targets the red and brown pigments in skin using the 520 to 1100 nm wavelength.
The laser genesis uses this deep but relatively harmless penetration to effectively stimulate collagen production, resulting in smoother, healthier, younger-looking skin with a visible improvement in skin texture, fine lines, and large pores.
Using smart, cutting-edge technology, the laser can also apply targeted heat in dilated blood capillaries. This helps reduce redness, making it an ideal treatment for acne scarring, inflammatory acne, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea.
The Limelight laser is used to target brown discoloration in the skin. This is the intense pulsed light (IPL) or photofacial treatment that will destroy the brown spots and give a more even skin tone.
You can expect to see results after each Cutera Xeo® treatment in Spring Valley. The best part is that the Cutera treatment does not come with undesirable side effects which are characteristic of other dermatological cosmetic treatments, such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. In most cases, you will not even need the use of general or local anesthesia or gel cream.
Cutera Xeo® treatments are performed in the comfort and privacy of our clinic, by a member of our highly trained medical staff who is well-trained in the art of dermatological and cosmetic treatments. This procedure will always be administered by a highly qualified laser services technician.
For safety, we require that patients wear protective eyeglasses to protect yourself from the laser light during the procedure. We do not typically apply gel or topical anesthetic before this procedure, as it comes with little to no pain.
The treatment time is dependent on the target area being treated. There is no downtime or recovery as with more invasive procedures, so we encourage patients to immediately return to work, their social lives, and other normal activities afterward.
While there are no undesirable side effects such as bruising or inflammation, the treated area may temporarily become pink. This is normal and will generally subside after a couple of hours.
For best results, we typically recommend three to six treatments overall. There is no downtime needed with these non-invasive laser treatments.
