Address Redness, Visible Veins, and More with Laser Skin Therapy in Thousand Oaks

Laser skin therapy makes it possible to have beautifully clear, youthful skin!

Cutera is known for making laser skin therapy devices that are versatile in their applications and precise in their energy delivery.
What Can Laser Skin Therapy Do?
Laser skin therapy with the Cutera Excel V revitalizes the skin as it treats spider veins and diminishes leg veins, as well as reduces the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, rosacea-related redness, venous lakes, angiomas, freckles and age spots, and more. You may be a potential candidate for this advanced mode of skin revitalization if you are looking to correct any of these aesthetic concerns.
Laser Genesis is another option for treating the redness of rosacea, as well as other cosmetic concerns: fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, texture irregularities, scarring, and more. While this laser skin therapy treatment is frequently used on the face, it can also be applied to the neck and elsewhere on the body.
How Does Laser Skin Therapy Work?
Both the Cutera Excel V and Laser Genesis handpieces deliver gentle micropulses of laser energy, which safely and effectively stimulate the production of collagen, which is the main structural protein in the skin. Collagen regeneration builds better support for the surface, as well as creates a framework where hyaluronic acid molecules can bind to water for improved hydration.
When targeting dilated, broken, or otherwise visible capillaries, the laser energy focuses on red-colored cells in the blood, which absorb light to the point that they overheat. This heat ultimately causes the thin vessels to seal off from the larger circulatory system, collapse, and be absorbed into the body. The result is a more balanced skin tone.
What Is a Laser Skin Therapy Session Like?
Treatment session specifics depend on whether Cutera Excel V or Laser Genesis is being used, and which areas are being targeted for clearing and smoothing. It is not uncommon for sessions to take less than a lunch break.
Light energy entering the skin creates heat and some discomfort. Dr. Pierre offers options for patients who want to reduce sensation in the treatment area to make the session more comfortable.
Though some results are visibly shortly after a laser skin therapy session, multiple treatments—around four to six—may be necessary to maximize the effects of Cutera Excel V and Laser Genesis.

What Can You Expect After a Laser Skin Therapy Treatment?
Unlike many surgical approaches, laser skin therapy with the Cutera Excel V requires little to no downtime after a treatment session. You may be able to resume your schedule right where you left off! The Cutera Excel V is safe for use on all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Following your first treatment session with the Cutera Laser Genesis, you may be able to notice the development of healthier, younger-looking skin. Dr. Pierre recommends a treatment plan made up of four to six laser skin therapy treatments to get the most of your results. He can help you during your consultation to determine how many sessions you may need to achieve your aesthetic goals. Ultimately, results will vary from person to person.
Laser-treated skin remains sensitive to sunlight in the days following a session. It is important to wear proper sunscreen when going outdoors during this time, when the skin may also be slightly red, tender, and swollen. No downtime is necessary, however, and patients should feel free to go about their typical schedule with no alterations after laser skin therapy.
