Lasers have become a part of everyday life. At the grocery store, lasers scan the barcodes on your items. On the mountain, lasers scan your ski pass. At Park City Muni, lasers give you the exact yardage to the pin.
We love lasers at Saltz Plastic Surgery/Spa Vitoria, too. Here’s a breakdown of how we use the Cutera XEO Laser to provide laser and light therapy to improve the skin of our patients.
Laser Genesis delivers laser energy down into the dermis layer of the skin, without harming the epidermis. This is a non-invasive laser procedure with no downtime that smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles, refines large pores, improves uneven skin texture, improves rosacea and scars, and presents a more youthful glow from the skin.
Patients with moderate to severe sun damage and aging can resurface their skin in just one treatment. Pearl Fractional delivers fractional resurfacing, making hundreds of tiny channels through the epidermis into the dermis. These channels are surrounded by healthy, untouched skin (hence the term “fractional) and they heal within just a few hours. But as the laser energy enters the dermis, the body responds with a “wound response,” creating new collagen and elastin, and remodeling the existing collagen. This procedure breaks down areas of uneven texture and pigmentation. Your results continue to improve over the next six months as the body creates new collagen in response to the minute holes created by the laser.

The Limelight Facial is a pulsed light system that is effective for treating brown spots, sun damage, and red pigmentation problems. It also improves skin texture and tone, and reduces pore size. It can be used on the face, neck, décolleté, back, and arms.
Forget the needle and salt solution for removing spider veins and deeper blue leg veins. The XEO laser delivers light energy into the vein, which converts to heat. This heat damages the walls of the vein, closing it off and the body eventually absorbs it. Any blood that was routed through the vein is rerouted by the body to another nearby vein. The XEO is especially effective on facial capillaries and spider veins.
