Cutera and IPL
Cutera Laser and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatments
Cutera is a laser and other light-based aesthetic platforms which enables hair reduction and skin rejuvenation treatments to be performed in a safe, effective and non-invasive manner.
The Cutera system is used for hair reduction on all skin types including tanned skin; treatment of vascular conditions, including facial veins and a wide range of non-ablative and ablative skin rejuvenation applications.
ProWave IPL Hair Removal
Hair reduction to help stop or decrease the use of razors, waxing and electrolysis is available for both men and for women wanting to target unwanted hair. The use of the Cutera ProWave treatment rarely requires any anaesthetic or other pain relief and is available for most skin types. Treatments are 1-2 months apart depending on the area of the body and 6-8 treatments are required to achieve the desired results.
CoolGlide Laser Hair Removal
The CoolGlide Laser is another laser hair reduction system available on the Cutera platform and can be used for all skin types. Patients with tanned skin or inflamed hair follicles will find this system very effective in treating their condition. Treatments are 1-2 months apart depending on the area of the body and 6-8 treatments are required to achieve the desired results.
The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely and effectively rejuvenate the skin. It can treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture and skin redness. There is no need for gel, anaesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment. Some patients describe the treatment as a relaxing and therapeutic experience. During the treatment you will feel a gentle warming of your skin’s surface as the laser moves over your skin. Over a course of four to six treatments, Laser Genesis can help reduce signs of ageing and sun damage. You will see a creamier, healthier complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. As there is no down time this procedure has become one of the favourite Cutera treatments available to our patients. Treatments can be done 2-4 weeks apart.
The Limelight facial treatment is another non-surgical cosmetic enhancement that helps rejuvenate the skin and improve the skin tone and surface imperfections associated with ageing and photo damage. The Limelight can address facial issues such as skin redness, tiny veins, brown spots and other effects caused by sun damage that chemical and physical sunscreens cannot keep from occurring. A Limelight series usually consists of 2 to 5 treatments at monthly intervals. Immediately after your treatment your skin may be slightly red or swollen. This will generally only last for a few hours and settle within a day. You are able to wear makeup and continue your daily duties. After your treatment the pigmentation or brown spots will usually darken, come to the skins surface and flake off. This process will take up to 10days. You can apply makeup during this time.
CoolGlide Vein Therapy
The Cutera CoolGlide Vein Therapy delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate and eventually destroy the vessel. The unique design and long wavelength allows treatment of patients of all skin tones to effectively treat red facial veins also know as capillaries. You will experience a slight stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Following the treatment you may experience some redness or bruising may occur. Most patients will require one to three treatments but this will depend on the number, colour and size of the vessels being treated.
The Pearl procedure allows us to combine the results of a resurfacing laser with the safety of non-invasive procedures to renew your skin’s surface. The Pearl procedure helps minimize wrinkles, uneven texture and discolouration. Pearl can also be teamed with other treatments to achieve further results. The combination of Laser Genesis, fillers or anti-wrinkle injections are just some of the other treatments available with the Pearl procedure. Most patients require 1 to 2 treatments of Pearl. This treatment is available for patients with light to medium skin tones, mild to moderate sun damage or mild to moderate ageing. This treatment is performed by Dr Layt and requires 3-4 days down time. Treatments are performed at 3-6 month intervals.
Pearl Fractional is a laser treatment which utilizes fractional laser technology for photoageing in just one treatment.
Pearl Fractional’s unique laser wavelength offers a safe treatment. This treatment is intense and has 4-7 days down time. Pearl Fractional is performed by our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr Craig Layt. Patients see improvements in brown spots and sun damage, tone and texture and have a noticeably smoother, brighter complexion. Pearl Fractional can treat the entire face as well as the more delicate and most challenging areas such as around the eyes and mouth.
Pearl Fusion is the combination treatment of Pearl and Pearl Fractional – the fusion of these two technologies helps achieve greater results in skin rejuvenation.
