xeo Laser Skin Rejuvenation
How does the xeo laser work?
The Cutera® xeo® aesthetic system uses lasers and intense pulsed light systems to treat 20+ skin conditions. It offers multiple configurations to allow Dr. Ude-Oshiyoye or Dr. Oshiyoye to adapt the system for your personal situation.
The aesthetic workstation provides an effective alternative to more invasive cosmetic procedures that you can get at your regular doctor’s visit.
What is intense pulsed light?
Whereas lasers use one continuous wavelength of light, intense pulsed light (IPL) uses different wavelengths of light adjusted to your particular skin type and condition. The light energy from IPL penetrates the outer layer of skin and stimulates collagen production. Because the wavelengths are adjustable, IPL can treat a variety of skin problems.
Those IPL wavelengths undo sun damage to the skin, such as brown spots and fine lines. They also remove fine hair and reverse skin redness from conditions like rosacea and broken blood vessels.
Intense pulsed light therapy is quick and noninvasive. You could even get a treatment on your lunch break and return to work immediately following. The treatment does sting a bit, but there’s no downtime and you’re left with little more than a slight, temporary flush.
How do the lasers work?
Lasers use a specific wavelength of light to remove unwanted hair, tattoos, and skin lesions. Because they can heat the collagen under the skin, lasers are also effective for skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing treatments.
Lasers provide an impressive end result while emphasizing safety and diminishing recovery time. Dr. Ude-Oshiyoye or Dr. Oshiyoye perform most treatments in under an hour, after which you can go right back to your daily life.
What can the xeo system do for me?
The various laser and intense pulsed light attachments offered by the xeo system treat:
- Visible face and leg veins
- Brown spots
The lasers and IPL treat many more conditions than what’s listed, so check with the clinic to see if you’re a good candidate for xeo treatments. Call or book an appointment online to discuss your desired look.
Laser skin rejuvenation is just one of the many services Dr. Ude-Oshiyoye and Dr. Oshiyoye provide. Call their office for more information regarding additional services.
