Cutera 3D Skin Rejuvenation
Cutera ® 3D Skin Rejuvenation™
We always strive to bring our California patients the best skin care possible. For this reason, we offer Cutera ® 3D Skin Rejuvenation ™, a comprehensive system that can improve a variety of the conditions caused by aging. It combines the best of TITAN™, Limelight IPL, and Laser Genesis to improve skin tone, texture and tightness. Aging and environmental stresses take a toll on your skin by damaging collagen. The result is loose skin with spider veins, brown spots, large pores and fine wrinkles. The 3D Skin Rejuvenation system combines different treatments to treat all these signs of aging for a comprehensive improvement.
Limelight IPL removes sun spots and age spots.
Laser Genesis reduces redness, and improves pore size, the texture of your skin, and wrinkles.
TITAN XL addresses collagen laxity, creating firmer, tighter skin.
We evaluate each candidate for 3D Skin Rejuvenation at a complimentary consultation. 3D Skin Rejuvenation includes a series of 3 treatment sessions spaced 4 weeks apart. Each session includes a TITAN XL treatment as well as a Laser Genesis and Limelight IPL. We recommend a professional grade Microdermabrasion several days prior to starting your laser treatment session. The total time for each treatment session is approximately 2 hours and can be completed in a single day. Although often unnecessary, we offer a local anesthetic based numbing cream which we apply to the face for 30 minutes prior to the laser treatment sessions.
After the Procedure:
You may see some slight redness after the treatment, but this usually disappears within a few hours. Some patients see immediate results, while most see results in 2 to 4 weeks, gradually improving over several months. Cutera 3D Skin Rejuvenation is an innovative, three-tiered approach to restore healthy skin and rejuvenate the appearance. Through a series of cutting-edge procedures, 3D Rejuvenation treats all layers of the skin, addressing multiple problem areas at one time. Most people may have one, two, three, or more trouble areas that need to be addressed at the same time. Cutera 3D Skin Rejuvenation is designed to treat multiple skin problems for optimal results. Focusing on the three Ts: texture, tone and tightness, the 3D Skin Rejuvenation system provides patients with a healthy, youthful appearance in just a few weeks.
The Three Tiers of Cutera’s 3D Skin Rejuvenation:
Tier 1: Limelight (IPL)
Targeting: The Skin’s Surface
The LimeLight procedure, also known as IPL or Intense Pulsed Light, is a light-based procedure designed to reduce vascular lesions and hyperpigmentation such as freckles, age spots, red patches, Rosacea, and sun damage. LimeLight can quickly restore a glowing radiance to the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. The procedure does not require any anesthetic or topical numbing agents, as the skin is cooled before, during, and after the LimeLight treatment for optimal patient comfort.
Tier 2: Laser Genesis
Targeting: The Papillary Dermis
Laser Genesis is a restorative treatment using energy to heat the middle layers of the skin. It is designed to eliminate large pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and redness. The gentle laser procedure will also improve the tone and texture of the skin by encouraging the body’s natural production of Collagen. Areas that can benefit from Laser Genesis include the face, neck, arms, and torso. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes in the office and requires no anesthetic or numbing creams.
Tier 3: Titan Skin Tightening
Targeting: The Dermis
The Cutera Titan uses a safe, infrared light to heat the deepest layers of the tissue, stimulating the body’s production of Collagen. The procedure is extremely effective at improving the elasticity and tone of the skin. The most commonly targeted areas for the Titan include the face, jawline, arms, neck, abdomen, and the legs. The Titan procedure does not requires anesthesia and has no downtime. In six to twelve weeks, patients will begin to see dramatically tighter skin.
The Ideal Candidate for 3D Rejuvenation:
Anyone looking to improve the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, dark spots, or lax tissue may make an excellent candidate for 3D Rejuvenation. Both men and women can find satisfying results with the treatment series. A consultation appointment with California Cosmetics will be first scheduled so a treatment plan, including the 3D Skin Rejuvenation system, can be created. The plan will be tailored to meet the specific desires and goals of each individual patient.
