What is 3D Skin Rejuvenation therapy?
3D Skin Rejuvenation therapy from Cutera is a combination of laser and light-based treatments that work together to address the most common conditions of skin ageing – sun damage, age spots, broken capillaries, diffuse redness, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, fine scars and skin laxity – at both the skin’s surface and its deeper levels. The three elements of 3D Skin Rejuvenation are Limelight Facial, Laser Genesis, and Titan.
This treatment is a light-based procedure that addresses problems at the skin’s surface such as redness, freckles and sun damage.
This treatment stimulates and creates new collagen, which gives your face a youthful appearance by softening lines and wrinkles, shrinking pores and reducing facial redness.
During Titan treatment, infrared light is used to heat tissue in the deep dermis, addressing skin laxity and helping to tone the skin at the lower part of the face and neck.
Who can be treated?
Men and women of any age who wish to improve their skin can be treated with 3D Skin Rejuvenation therapy. The most common conditions to treat are those where the skin has become lax, has surface wrinkles or scars, redness, brown spots, broken capillaries or enlarged pores.
What areas can be treated?
The most popular areas for treatment are the face, neck and chest. Other body parts such as the hands, arms and abdomen are also frequently treated.
What do the treatments feel like?
The Limelight Facial delivers a series of light pulses. When each pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.
Laser Genesis treatments are gentle and soothing. During the session you will feel a series of warm pulses along your skin.
The Titan treatment delivers a cool sensation with each pulse, followed by a brief heating sensation, which is then followed by another cool feeling. Most patients are comfortable without taking any medication, however a few prefer taking a mild pain reliever beforehand. Your treating practitioner will be able to provide you with more information.
How many treatments will I need?
Each treatment regime is different and customised to an individual patient’s needs. Most patients can expect between two and six treatments.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effect is a slight redness or mild swelling in the treated area that disappears within a few hours.
When will I see results?
Immediate results are observed by some patients, especially after Laser Genesis treatments. More typically you will see results in two to four weeks, and improvements will continue for several months.
How does the 3D Skin Rejuvenation compare with other laser treatments?
Most lasers treat only one or two ageing conditions. They may diminish red or brown spots, or they may just reduce skin laxity. Only Cutera 3D Skin Rejuvenation addresses all of the most common conditions of ageing – brown spots, sun damage, redness, fine lines, enlarged pores, wrinkles, scarring and sagging skin – within the duration of the procedure.
