What is XEO® Laser Hair Removal?
Shaving may seem like a quick fix and a good idea while in the shower, but how often are you left with unsightly ingrown hairs, red bumps due to irritation, nicks, and scratches? A better alternative for safe, effective hair removal is here with the XEO® Laser System by Cutera. This is a laser and light-based machine that is customizable with several different attachments to offer a wide array of aesthetic cosmetic procedures.
How Does XEO® Laser Hair Removal Work?
During your session, the device emits pulses of highly concentrated light directly into the hair follicle. The pigment, or melanin, in each follicle absorbs the light and converts it into heat energy. This intense heat destroys the hair and makes it impossible for the follicle to grow hair again.
Am I a Candidate?
Whether you are a person who has thick or coarse body hair, or are just tired of spending time shaving only to redo the process 72 hours later, laser hair removal may work for you. The benefits of not having to worry about unwanted bumps, scratches, and ingrown hairs will make you feel confident in your skin overall.
What Can I Expect?
Laser hair removal is convenient, safe, and effective. Thankfully, XEO® minimizes any burning sensations since the attachment head is cold water cooled. Not all hair follicles in a treatment area can be targeted in a single session, so you must schedule multiple sessions to get rid of most or all of them. How many sessions it takes depends on the area being treated, the density of the hair, and your skin and hair type. You may have slight reddening of the skin and minor swelling following a session. This should resolve within a day or two.
What is XEO® Skin Revitalization?
Skincare needs are unique to each individual person. We each seek treatments that can better accommodate our preferences and help us achieve the look we want. XEO® skin revitalization by Cutera is a customizable light-based device optimized to treat common nonsurgical aesthetic concerns such as veins, pigment, wrinkles, and unwanted hair. This device is excellent for those who do not want to go through costly invasive procedures to achieve their skin revitalization goals.
How Does XEO® Skin Revitalization Work?
XEO® skin revitalization works to rebalance and repair your skin’s overall integrity and complexion. This is a completely customizable treatment session designed around your individual needs. In addition to the Nd:YAG technology that is utilized for hair removal, vascular lesions, and Cutera’s signature Laser Genesis® procedure, XEO® features the limelight and acutip IPLs to address photoaging, an Er:YSGG laser delivery for skin resurfacing, and Titan, Cutera’s deep heating thermal solution. These systems combine to give you maximum skin revitalization with little, if any, downtime.
Am I a Candidate?
Whether you are struggling with hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, or are just looking for your skin to feel revitalized, then you may be a candidate. Although this laser treatment assists you in getting the skin you desire, it is important to speak with your specialist and express your concerns so that they can customize your treatment specially based on your intended outcome. Thankfully, with the advancement of technology, we no longer have to struggle with our appearance and the way our bodies look over time. Correct the skin concerns you want with the help of the XEO® skin revitalization laser treatments.
What Can I Expect?
Treatment sessions typically last between 15-45 minutes. You may experience a pink or reddish discoloration of the treated areas. Although painless, this discoloration usually lasts several hours. This is because the laser minimizes any burning sensation since the attachment head is cold water cooled. You may be asked to avoid sun exposure for a short time after treatment, depending upon the area treated. You will be provided specific instructions at the time of treatment by your specialist.
What is XEO® LimeLight IPL?
The Limelight IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser treatment is a new, non-invasive approach to skin revitalization using Cutera’s LimeLight. The procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface imperfections associated with aging and photodamage.
How Does XEO® LimeLight IPL Work?
This technology uses three specific wavelengths that can be adjusted to target various skin conditions. Your practitioner can customize your LimeLight Facial to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented brown or red cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
Am I a Candidate?
The LimeLight Facial is ideal for any part of your face, neck and décolleté with skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins) or brown spots. Light (low contrast) brown spots, which were previously difficult to resolve, respond very well to treatment.
What Can I Expect?
Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness. Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
