If you’re ready to fight the signs of aging, schedule a free consultation by calling the office in North Grosvenor Dale, Connecticut or using online booking.
Photorejuvenation, also called a photofacial, refers to laser-based treatments that diminish the signs of aging, sun damage, and scarring. With the xeo system by Cutera, Dr. Chatterjee can customize your treatment to target one or more of the following aesthetic issues:
Lasers eliminate skin discolorations by operating at wavelengths that are selectively absorbed by red, blue, and brown pigments.
As visible veins, redness, and age spots absorb the laser’s energy, they reach a temperature that breaks down the targeted tissues. Then your body naturally eliminates the waste, so the pigmented areas permanently disappear.
The Cutera xeo® platform includes Laser Genesis™ treatment and an intense pulsed light (IPL) laser. While both lasers treat veins and skin hyperpigmentation, they each have unique benefits.
The IPL laser uses multiple wavelengths, so Dr. Chatterjee can treat several problem areas during one session by adjusting the wavelength.
Laser Genesis gently heats tissues below your skin’s surface, which stimulates collagen production. As new, collagen-rich skin replaces old skin, it becomes smoother and stronger. It also diminishes the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Photorejuvenation sessions take about 30-60 minutes, depending on the treatment area. Patients describe Laser Genesis treatment as gentle, warming, and relaxing. IPL treatment is comfortable because the Cutera xeo has a built-in system that cools your skin.
You can get back to your daily activities when your session is over. Your skin may appear a bit red for a short time, and hyperpigmented spots may look slightly darker before they begin to fade away.
While changes occur with each session, most patients need more than one treatment to achieve optimal results. It also takes a little time for your body to eliminate waste and produce collagen, but collagen synthesis continues for a few months, so your skin continues to improve.
During your consultation, Dr. Chatterjee lets you know the number of treatments you may need, the time to wait between each session, and when you can expect to see results.
