Fighting the signs of aging, the sun and adult acne doesn’t have to involve invasive procedures or surgery. Younger and healthier looking skin can be achieved through laser rejuvenation. By using specialized wavelengths of light, a laser can remove the layers of skin associated with aging and jumpstart the body’s natural healing process.
Athena Plastic Surgery features the Cutera Xeo laser system’s cutting-edge Laser Genesis™ non-ablative skin resurfacing attachment. This high-tech laser system features interchangeable tools to help brighten and tighten skin.
What is Laser Genesis™ Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing?
Laser Genesis™ non-ablative skin resurfacing rejuvenation uses concentrated light to penetrate deep into the dermis and epidermis to assist the body in producing collagen. This collagen is what gives your face the bright, healthy look you’re used to seeing. Laser skin rejuvenation is perfect for:
- Reducing wrinkles
- Fixing fine lines
- Fighting age spots
- Reducing sun spots
- Improving facial redness
- Stretch marks
- And many more!
What is the Procedure Like?
The process is an outpatient procedure, meaning that you’ll be in and out the same day. The actual time of the procedure will vary, but most people can complete an appointment in less than an hour. The laser treatment itself features a manageable amount of pain, but a topical numbing gel is available for use if need be.
Once treatment is completed, it’s important to take good care of the treated areas. The first step is to refrain from spending too much time in the direct sun and to avoid touching or manipulating the treatment area. Some swelling and redness are normal as well as some minor skin flaking and itching. These side-effects are only temporary and will subside in a few days.
The Cutera Xeo Difference
Cutera is one of the most trusted names in laser systems. The Xeo system is one of the most sought after laser treatments in the nation because of its versatility and results. Because of Xeo’s interchangeable heads, one laser can perform multiple procedures. Not only can Xeo rejuvenate your skin, but it can also deliver IPL treatment and remove unwanted body hair. The Laser Genesis™ is just one of this total body laser’s cutting-edge treatment heads.
Athena Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this innovative laser system to our patients.
