Laser Skin Services Q & A

What is the Cutera Xeo laser?

The Cutera Xeo is a state-of-the-art laser that performs a number of different nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Whether you’re seeking anti-aging benefits, acne treatments, or a more even complexion, the Cutera Xeo platform can improve the overall appearance of your skin without invasive surgical procedures.

Which treatments does the Cutera Xeo laser perform?

As a multi-modality platform, the Cutera Xeo performs several different treatments for patients of all ages, including:

Hair removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments available. Unlike previous models, however, Cutera developed the Xeo laser with its proprietary Nd:YAG technology to offer safe and effective hair removal for individuals with all skin types, including darker skin tones. Depending on the areas you hope to treat, most patients see a 70% reduction in hair growth after four to six laser hair removal sessions.

Laser genesis

Laser Genesis stimulates the body’s natural healing process to promote collagen production and improve your skin’s overall tone and texture. Not only do Laser Genesis treatments minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, they also help treat rosacea, acne, large pores, port wine stains, brown spots, and more. Most patients see dramatic results within three to five treatments.

Skin resurfacing

Skin resurfacing encourages new cell growth to take years off your skin. This nonsurgical treatment tightens skin, smoothes wrinkles, reduces acne, minimizes the appearance of surgical scars, improves redness, and treats brown spots for a clear, even complexion. How many treatments you need depends entirely on your skin and the areas you want to treat.

Is the Cutera Xeo laser right for me?

The Cutera Xeo laser comes with seven handpieces that target a wide range of various skin problems, such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Unwanted hair
  • Weathered skin
  • Uneven complexion
  • Saggy skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Brown age spots
  • Redness
  • Rosacea
  • Port wine stains
  • Sun damage
  • Vascular lesions

No matter which treatment you opt for, it’s important to avoid sun exposure for at least 48 hours following each of your sessions. Minor swelling, redness, and discomfort after your treatment is perfectly normal and should subside within the first few days.
