3D SKIN REJUVENATION
Want dramatic results? This is your solution! This dynamic approach to anti-aging is one of our favourite treatments as it produces significant improvements in all patients. 3D Skin Rejuvenation is a systematic treatment for antiaging coined by the Cutera® range of laser solutions. The theory employs the use of 3 separate laser technologies [ TITAN + LASER GENESIS + IPL ] each with their own specific and unique capabilities to combat the signs of aging from various angles. By combining these 3 treatments we can dramatically improve skin tone, texture and tightness.
ABOUT THE 3D LASER SYSTEM FROM CUTERA®
3 Combined Technologies for Dramatic Results
FIRM + LIFT
Deep tissue heating provides an instant and long lasting tightening effect. The Titan® Laser uses intense Infrared energy to contract skin at targeted layers that create a lifting and firming effect. The procedure is very effective in as little as one treatment, though multiple treatments may be required depending on the patient and desired result..
TITAN™ = TIGHTENING / LIFTING / FIRMING / CONTOUR
TEXTURE + WRINKLES
Stimulating Collagen is the key to improving a range of anti-aging issues. Laser Genesis uses Infrared energy to kick start the skins natural healing process by triggering collagen production. The increased collagen can soften fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size and improve texture while restoring your skins natural glow. Laser Genesis technology is also an effective tool in treating acne, rosacea and scars.
LASER GENESIS™ = PORES / WRINKLES / ACNE / SCARS
REDNESS + SPOTS
IPL / LIMELIGHT™ / PHOTOFACIAL
Pigment targeting laser technology from the Limelight™ device is the last step in the 3D Skin Rejuvenation protocol. Also known as an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or Photofacial, the treatment isolates pigment in the skin such as redness and brown spots while leaving the surrounding area unaffected. The Limelight laser removes vascular lesions, redness, brown spots and melasma.
LIMELIGHT™ = SUN DAMAGE / REDNESS / VEINS
THE AGING FACE
On average women will incur 80% of sun damage before turning 20.
At 20, collagen production will decline by 1% per year and skin thickness will decrease roughly 7% every 10 years.
• Facial aging begins
• Body stops producing ceramides, the molecules that surround and nourish skin cells, and this results in dryer, flakier skin
• Skin firmness begins to decrease
• Wrinkles, blemishes, and sunspots may also start to appear
Collagen Production -10%
Skin Thickness -7%
• Collagen and elastic fibers begin to break down in the face
• First signs of aging are visibly noticeable
• Fine lines and wrinkles become more and more apparent – forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s-feet, smile lines, lip lines, marionette lines and sagging
• Inevitable forces of gravity are subtly emerging
Collagen Production -20%
Skin Thickness -14%
• Skin is losing volume
• Wrinkles and lines can start to appear deeper and more permanent
Collagen Production -30%
Skin Thickness -21%
• Once firm skin now sags
• Wrinkles tend to set in as permanent fixtures
Collagen Production -40%
Skin Thickness -28%
3D SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENT FAQ:
Laser Genesis™: This is actually a quite relaxing treatment. Most patients compare it to laying in the hot sun and do not experience any discomfort during the procedure.
Titan™: You will feel a brief heating sensation during the pulse of the treatment. Some patients prefer to take a mild pain reliever like Advil or Tyler prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.
Laser Genesis™: Subtle results can be obtained within one treatment while dramatic results are achieved usually with 4 to 6.
Titan™: Most patients achieve their desired results with only one treatment. Our doctors will advise you if any additional treatments are needed.
Men and women of any age can be treated. 3D Skin Rejuvenation is also safe for all skin types. Most skin tones are also suitable.
Side effects are minimal but you may experience redness and swelling for a few hours to a few days following treatment.
