Laser Therapy Q&A

What is laser therapy?

Glo de Vie Med Spa uses advanced laser technology designed to treat the widest range of today’s most common non surgical aesthetic concerns – veins, pigment, wrinkles, hair removal and skin revitalization.

CUTERA® Limelight IPL (INTENSE PULSE LIGHT) 

Glo de Vie utilizes CUTERA® Limelight IPL, a medical grade, non ablative approach to skin revitalization.  IPL effectively eliminates signs of photoaging by stimulating the production of collagen at a cellular level while dramatically improving skins overall appearance.  

How does CUTERA® Limelight IPL Laser work?

The CUTERA® Limelight laser is designed to combat age spots, freckles, skin redness, Telangiectasia (tiny veins) and sun damage>  IPL therapy emits high-intensity pulses of light energy deep into the epidermis, causing blood vessels and collagen fibers to constrict without damaging the surface layer of skin.  

What are the benefits to IPL treatments?

  • Improves fine lines and wrinkles
  • Treats hyperpigmentation (sunspots) and freckles
  • Treats pigmented vascular lesions and broken capillaries
  • Treats persistent redness and flushing (Rosacea)
  • Eliminates acne-causing bacteria, reducing the frequency of breakouts
  • Treats Melasma (brown, discolored skin patches)
  • Increases skins overall brightness and radiance


CUTERA
® XEO® LASER GENESIS 

Laser Genesis is a breakthrough laser treatment that stimulates the skin’s natural processes to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage and promote vibrant, healthy-looking complexion. 

How does CUTERA® XEO® LASER GENESIS work?

Laser Genesis gently heats the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface to improve the appearance of wrinkles through collagen stimulation.  Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness. Micro-pulses of laser energy activate collagen remodeling to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and target unwanted brown spots and facial redness. 

What are the benefits to LASER GENESIS treatments?

  • Safely and gently diffuse redness
  • Fades acne scarring
  • Continuously stimulates new collagen production
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines

What areas can be treated?

CoolGlide Laser effectively removes hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms and back and can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.

How many treatments will I need?

® 

What is CLEAR+BRILLIANT® LASER Therapy Face Treatment and how does it work?
