Only Cutera takes a three-tiered (3D) approach to skin rejuvenation – resulting in noticeably improved skin tone, texture, and tightness.
Separately, each clinical application provides a powerful solution for specific problems, but together, they offer patients much more effective skin rejuvenation solutions.
Typically this treatment package is performed over a 12-week period with no social downtime. It includes 4 LimeLight, 6 Laser Genesis, and 2 Titan procedures.
Laser Genesis is an ND:Yag Laser which gently applies heat to the skin stimulating new collagen, produces a thicker dermis, reduces pore size, calms and controls acne and rosacea, creates a smooth texture, a taught and tight snap to the skin and minimizes fine lines. This is our most popular stand-alone laser treatment because it is a comfortable treatment, without downtime. For optimal results, a 6-treatment series is recommended, each session performed every 2 weeks.
The Cutera Titan® uses light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin’s surface. Without surgery, recovery time, or injections, Titan is an ideal solution for your face, abdomen, arms and more. Titan uses a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.
Since the Titan procedure heats tissue under the skin’s surface, patients of any skin type or age can be treated.
The LimeLight Facial is a non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation using Cutera’s LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage. It is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
By selecting Program A, B or C, your practitioner can customize your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect. One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sundamaged skin.
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness. Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear with new sun damage; however they too can be treated. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots and diffuse redness. Rosacea is chronic and cannot be “cured” with any laser or light source, however its appearance can be improved.
