Titan utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. During the procedure, the skin’s top surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.
Titan is a non-downtime laser procedure that uses light energy to heat the deep dermis/skin, effectively jumpstarting a contraction and tightening of the skin to improve elasticity and a healthy glow. The protein matrix in the skin (collagen) is stimulated at that level and will continue to proliferate over the next six months. Titan is an ideal solution without surgery, recovery time or injections.
It is quite comment for patients to have two or three treatments over a few months.
The Cutera XEO® Laser features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones. The Cutera Laser can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or “telangiectasia”) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large blue
leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. Schedule a consultation to see if this therapy is right for you.
The Cutera XEO® Laser combines the ideal laser wavelength with the
most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system.
It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue
reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively. Patients with dark, light
or tanned skin can experience outstanding results.
The Cutera XEO® Laser delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood
within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is
later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to
veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.
Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However,
the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color,
and size of the vessels being treated.
Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. When larger veins are treated, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months following treatment. Patients who have leg vein treatments may be advised to wear support hose for a short period of time.
Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur.
Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately. However,
it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous
exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. The use of sunscreen is
recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear,
The Cutera CoolGlide is the best laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types and tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling design, allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.
The CoolGlide can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.
As the name implies, the CoolGlide handpiece cools and soothes as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of CoolGlide treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. CoolGlide treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
Immediately following your CoolGlide treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
