Skin Care Secrets from Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens
We offer our Los Angeles and Beverly Hills patients the following Cutera® laser skin rejuvenation treatments that can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands:
- Laser Genesis effectively provides fine, detailed treatment of facial veins, rosacea, and sun damage.
- Pearl corrects the signs of aging and sun damage by treating the entire surface of the skin and encouraging new collagen growth.
- Pearl Fractional treatments target wrinkles and sun damage with minimal downtime.
- Excel V™ Laser treatments can treat both small and large veins, improve skin tone, and alleviate a wide range of other concerns
Laser Genesis treatments effectively correct unwanted redness and enlarged blood vessels of sensitive areas like the face, chest, and hands. These comfortable, non-ablative treatments can be performed without anesthetic. Initial minor redness typically lasts only a few hours. You can expect to immediately return to normal activities, taking care to apply sunscreen when outdoors.
Most patients notice subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects like bruising or excessive skin irritation. On average you may require 4 to 6 treatments in order to achieve the result you are looking for.
Unlike “fractional” treatments like Pearl Fractional and Fraxel®, Pearl treats the entire surface of the skin for a comprehensive skin renewal. These treatments affect both the outside and the inside layers of the skin. The entire outer layer of treated skin is replaced with new healthy skin. The laser delivers heat to deeper layers of the skin stimulating new collagen growth, filling out and decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. New collagen growth continues for 4 to 6 weeks post-treatment. The combination of new skin and decreased wrinkles results in a healthier, more youthful appearance.
After treatment, the skin will look like it is sunburned and you will leave the office with ointment applied to the skin to keep it moist. The skin will need to be kept moist for 3-4 days during which you will need to wear protective clothing and limit sun exposure. After 3-4 days, the top layer of skin peels off revealing new, healthy, vibrant skin underneath. Although initial care is required, the total number of required treatments is minimized. Typically, only 1-2 treatments are necessary to renew your skin.
Pearl Fractional laser treatments impact only a fraction of the skin at a particular site, but by initiating the body’s natural healing process rejuvenate the entire area. During treatment, thousands of microscopic columns of light are used to treat the skin in a “dot” pattern, while leaving much of the skin untreated. As your body repairs the treated portions of the skin, it regenerates cells and rebuilds collagen, creating a much healthier and more vibrant look to the skin.
Pearl Fractional renews the skin from within, increasing volume to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and hollows while also repairing photo-damage and other imperfections on the skin’s surface. The treatment works best for individuals who have a light to medium skin tone, and who have been experiencing environmental or age-related skin imperfections or loss of volume. Pearl Fractional is safe for use on the entire face and is particularly effective for repairing the delicate skin around the eyes and mouth where signs of aging most often occur.
A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin before treatment to increase your comfort. These treatments have been described as feeling like a series of fast, hot pinches, or like a rubber band snap. Afterwards, your skin will appear slightly reddened and may be swollen temporarily. You can begin to see results in about a week, and will be able to apply make-up within 5 to 7 days. The skin will continue to rebuild itself and replenish lost collagen for 3 to 6 months, creating additional skin enhancement during this time.
