FAQ

TruSculpt 3D

Am I a candidate for truSculpt 3D?

Your provider can tell you whether you’re a good candidate for truSculpt 3D. Ideal patients typically have a BMI of less than 30.

How long does a treatment take?

The length of your procedure will depend on which areas you’re having treated. As a gauge, it usually takes about 1 hour to treat the abdomen and both flanks (love handles).

How many treatments will I need?

You should see results after one treatment, although some patients choose to have a second treatment for final tweaks or to treat additional areas.

Will it hurt?

Patients tell us that the procedure feels like a hot stone massage. Your provider will gently glide the handpiece over the treatment area and the temperature of the skin will rise but should remain comfortable for the duration of the treatment.

Will I need recovery time?

No. This is a noninvasive procedure and you’ll be able to resume your normal activities right after the treatment. You may feel some tenderness in the treatment area right after the treatment but that will go away within a day or two.

Are there any side effects?

You won’t experience any side effects except for the slight tenderness mentioned above.

When will I see results?

Right after the treatment, your body will start to break down and flush out the remnants of the fat cells that have been treated, which begins the reduction in the treated area’s circumference. Every body is different, but most people see noticeable results 6–8 weeks after being treated.

UltraSlim

How does UltraSlim work?

UltraSlim® stimulated lipolysis is the process where a special patented type of light passes through the skin tissue and into adipose tissue to stimulate the fat cells. The fat cells receive the signal as a sign of starvation or an otherwise necessary energy release. This causes pores in the cell membrane to open and release the fat, then it is removed with your waste.

What results should I expect?

The typical patient loses an average of 3.5 inches at their first treatment. Totally transform your body with as few as 6 treatments!

What does the treatment feel like?

It’s slightly warm and very pleasant. The light is positioned over your body several inches away, never touching you. Many patients fall asleep during treatment.

Is there any pain or discomfort?

No! UltraSlim® has no pain, no discomfort, and no downtime.

How many treatments will I need?

Ask your doctor what will be best for you. Each body is different and your UltraSlim® provider will create a treatment plan based on your individual needs.

Titan

What does the Cutera Titan work?

Titan utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. During the procedure, the skin’s top surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.

The Titan difference

Titan’s light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radio- frequency).

What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?

Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body. The most common areas treated are the jawline, under the chin, and the abdomen.

Who can be treated?

Since the Titan procedure heats tissue under the skin’s surface, patients of any skin type or age can be treated. Your physician can advise you if the Titan is right for you.

How many treatments will I need?

Although a single treatment has produced very good results for many patients, it is quite common for patients to have two or three treatments over a few months. Your physician will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results.

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours. Consult with your physician for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

What do treatments feel like?

With each Titan pulse you will feel a brief heating sensation. Some patients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever beforehand. Many patients are comfortable without any medication. Your physician will advise you.

Laser genesis

What is laser genesis a good treatment for?

  • Fine lines
  • Facial redness
  • Brown spots
  • Scarring

What can I expect during my treatment?

xeo® laser genesis stimulates the skin’s natural renewal process to improve overall skin quality, resulting in a radiant, more youthful complexion. During the procedure, gentle micro-pulses of laser energy are sent to the skin to activate collagen remodeling to give your skin its smooth, radiant complexion. In less than one hour, you can start to experience the amazing renewal properties of xeo® laser genesis. From the first treatment, the laser begins to correct fine lines, diminish unwanted brown spots and facial redness, and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.

When can I expect to see visible results?

For maximum results, you’ll want to follow a complete treatment series with full results seen in as few as four treatments. After a series of four to six treatments, you can expect to see visible improvement in the look and feel of your skin. xeo® laser genesis has a high safety profile with minimal side effects, making it the perfect option for virtually anyone wanting to turn back the signs of aging and get a head start on their future look.

Is there any downtime?

This gentle procedure requires no downtime. In fact, you can even do it on your lunchtime and be back at work immediately.

What areas can be treated?

Patients have seen remarkable results on the face and necks. Additionally, laser genesis can diminish recent scares on other parts of the body.

Vein Removal

How does Cutera Laser Vein Therapy work?

The Cutera Laser delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.

What types of veins can be treated?

The Cutera Laser can remove unsightly veins from all parts of the body. Small, facial veins (or “telangiectasia”) can be treated quickly without bruising or complication. Spider veins and large blue leg veins can also be treated with excellent results. Knotty varicose veins are not good candidates. A careful evaluation with your physician will help you determine which vessels can be treated and the best course of treatment.

How does this compare to Sclerotherapy?

Your doctor will advise you on the best course of action, but many physicians and patients prefer Cutera Laser Vein Therapy because there are no painful injections.
Blood blisters or “hemangiomas” respond very well to Cutera Laser treatment, usually with just one session. Patients with port wine stains and other vascular lesions who had given up on finding a solution have been overwhelmed by the success of their Cutera Laser vascular treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Often, patients find that one or two treatments are sufficient. However, the number of treatments necessary depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated. Since individual results vary, ask your medical professional about your specific condition.

Do the treatments hurt?

Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required, many patients opt to use a topical anesthetic prior to treatment. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

What happens after the treatment?

Following your treatment, some redness or bruising may occur. When larger veins are treated, a tan or brownish pigment may persist for a few weeks or months following treatment. Patients who have leg vein treatments may be advised to wear support hose for a short period of time.

What are the possible side effects?

Although many patients report few if any side effects, those most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin. These effects typically last for less than 24 hours. Some patients may experience bruising and, in rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?

Patients generally resume most normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended that you avoid vigorous activities such as strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. The use of sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure.

When will I see results?

Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment. However, your final results may not be apparent for several months. Over time, it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed with the Cutera Laser.

What does UltraSlim do for Skin Rejuvenation (Face, neck, Decollete Under Chin Lift )
As we age, our body produces less elastin and collagen. LED Red Light treatments stimulate the body’s production of these proteins. The result is youthful, rejuvenated skin. Fine lines and wrinkles disappear, blemishes are less noticeable, and skin tags on the eyelids are smaller.

Botox

HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying contracting muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet. When these muscles are inhibited, they are relaxed and the resulting skin is smooth and wrinkle-free.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Botox® can take 3-7 days to take effect with results lasting 4-6 months. Some people metabolize Botox® faster than others which means repeat treatment may be needed sooner than others to maintain results.* *Results and patient experience may vary.

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO RECEIVE BOTOX?

Some patients would describe the sensation as a pinch or the feeling of a mosquito bite. Most people do not require any anesthetics at all. However, if you have any concerns about the pain, we have a variety of topical numbing agents to help ease any discomfort.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

Initial consultations can take up to 30 minutes to map the treatment areas and collaborate on your aesthetic goals. Actual treatments can be finished in as little as 10 minutes, especially when you have an established history with your provider.
