Frequently asked questions

Vein Therapy

Who can be treated with the Cutera Laser? The Cutera Laser features a unique design and long wavelength that allows treatment of patients of all skin tones.

How many treatments will I need? 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.

What are the possible side effects? 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.

When will I see results? 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, but these too can be removed with the Cutera Laser.

Laser Genesis

What areas can be treated? Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.

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. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.

How does Laser Genesis work? By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis improves the appearance of wrinkles through collagen stimulation. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

How many treatments will I need? On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary

What kind of improvements can you expect with Laser Genesis skin therapy? Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.

Laser Hair Removal
 

What areas can be treated with the CoolGlide? 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.

What do CoolGlide treatments feel like? 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.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment? Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.

How does the CoolGlide compare with other hair removal methods? Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods which must be repeated on a frequent basis. The CoolGlide offers permanent hair reduction for lasting results.

Microdermabrasion

What is Diamond Peel? A Diamond Peel is a crystal-free microdermabrasion. During this procedure, a state-of-the-art diamond tipped hand piece will be used to gently remove the dead cells and debris on the outer layer of your skin, leaving smoother, cleaner, brighter skin.

How effective is diamond microdermabrasion?

Diamond microdermabrasion is one of the easiest and most effective ways to fight the effects of aging. 

Will one session of microdermabrasion make a difference?

One Microdermabrasion treatment session on its own will exfoliate and remove dead skin cells to reveal a clean, bright complexion. It will unblock pores and help to remove blemishes, blackheads and dry skin. You'll definitely see the difference and you'll probably want more!
