Cutera Xeo Laser Treatments

Treat a broad range of conditions with the wavelength that Cutera knows better than anyone. truPulse Nd:YAG provides up to 15 treatment applications and appropriate for all skin types. The system is optimized for effective hair removal, treating vascular lesions on the face and lower extremities, and includes the highly popular, no-downtime laser genesis procedure for skin revitalization.

YAG Laser Genesis

What is Laser Genesis?

Laser Genesis effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tightens pores, reduces oil production, improves overall tone and texture on the skin, gets rid of sun damage and helps aid in scar reduction with no downtime.  Laser Genesis is the ultimate lunchtime procedure.

How does Laser Genesis work?

Laser Genesis uses a Nd:YAG laser to gently heat layers of tissue in the dermis. The rising temperature breaks up oil and dirt, stimulates collagen growth and evens out skin tone. Laser Genesis also diffuses the facial redness that accompanies rosacea.

How many Laser Genesis treatments are necessary?

While you can expect to see a subtle response following each treatment, we recommend receiving 4-5 consistent treatments to see your best results.

What are the time intervals between Laser Genesis treatments?

The interval between Laser Genesis treatments is about 2 weeks.

LimeLight (aka Photo Facial)

Cutera’s LimeLight delivers a non-invasive light treatment that can be customized for different skin tones and aging conditions, resulting in an exceptional skin revitalization treatment with minimal discomfort. In addition to treating sun spots, benign pigmented lesions, and vascular concerns. LimeLight also balances colour and improves the complexion.

LimeLight IPL

What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy?

IPL is a hand held device that can be used to treat signs of aging, fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots/age spots, benign pigmented lesions, and vascular lesions. IPL can be used to balance your skin’s color and tone, and improve your overall complexion.  The therapy can be performed on face, hands and body. We offer the LimeLight IPL.

How does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy work?

IPL is a hand held device that emits a broad-spectrum pulse of light to your skin.  This high intensity light targets pigments in your skin. The light is converted into heat energy to destroy damaged cells that produce pigment or color to your skin.  It also causes dermal heating of your skin which will aid in skin tightening and collagen production.

How many Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy treatments are necessary?

Depending on the severity of the sun damage or pigmentation of the skin most patients have 3 to 6 treatments performed; this will include darkened spots flaking or falling off, a decrease in diffuse redness and an improvement in mottled complexion. Maintenance treatments can then be performed once or twice a year. Patients may experience a mild pinch or stinging sensation with the pulse of the light, but this will quickly diminish with the treatment ends.

What are the time intervals between Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy treatments?

The interval between IPL treatments is at least 4 weeks.

Laser Spider Vein Therapy (YAG Coolglide Laser)

The Cutera CoolGlide Laser safely and effectively treats the tiny, superficial veins and the deeper blue leg veins in men and women of all skin tones.

What is Laser Spider Vein Therapy?

Either on your face or body, we can treat a broad range of vessels from spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively.  Although perfect for all skin tones, the number of treatments depends on the number, color, and size of the vessels being treated.

How does Laser Spider Vein Therapy work?
The TruPulse Nd:YAG delivers pulses of light energy which causes blood within the vein to coagulate which eventually destroys the vessel.  Blood flow will be redirected to veins deeper below the skin’s surface where it should be.

How many Laser Spider Vein Therapy treatments are necessary?

Most patients find that the majority of the treated veins show significant improvement within 2 to 6 weeks of treatment.  Final results may not be apparent for several months and more treatments may be needed. Larger reticular vessels may take longer to resolve and may need multiple treatments.

What are the time intervals between Laser Spider Vein Therapy treatments?

The interval between Laser Spider Vein Therapy treatments is about 6 weeks.

Prowave LX (Rapid Hair Reduction)

What is Laser Hair Removal?

If you are tired of shaving or waxing Laser Hair Removal may be the perfect option.  It is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in Canada. We offer 2 different hand pieces for fast hair removal treatments.  With either the Prowave LX or the Coolglide Nd:YAG, we can customize the best treatment to accommodate the area.  These treatments are perfect for any area on the body, for lighter and finer hair, and for all skin pigment types.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

The laser is absorbed by the pigment in the hair.  The energy produced by the laser is converted to heat which damages the hair follicles.  The hair follicle is what produces hair and so by damaging the hair follicle there is a permanent decrease in hair growth.

How many treatments of Laser Hair Removal are necessary?

Only ‘active’ hair follicles are affected by a Laser Hair Removal treatment, and not all hair follicles are ‘active’ at the same time.  Therefore, multiple treatments are necessary. The average number of treatments is 5 to 8.

What are the time intervals between Laser Hair Removal treatments?

For facial hair the time interval between treatments is 6 to 8 weeks. For body hair the time interval between treatments is 8 to 10 weeks.  For back or leg hair the time interval between treatments is 10 to 12 weeks.

What is 2D Skin Revitalize Therapy

This is the combination of Laser Genesis and LimeLight IPL treatments in one session.  Each procedure provides an effective solution to a single concern but when combined the Revitalize Therapy approach provides synergistic results in fewer treatments. Most patients perform 2 to 6 treatments to see desired results and will notice improvements in as early as 2 to 4 weeks with improvements continuing for several months.

*As with any procedure, there are always risks. We take special care to educate our patients on all the risk factors associated with IPL Photo Facial, Hair Reduction, and YAG Laser treatments. Following our pre-treatment and post-treatment instructions are the most important way to prevent excessive side effects and unnecessary damage.

Skin Pen

Single session $350, Purchase three and receive the neck or décolleté complimentary,

SkinPen by Crown Aesthetics is the first FDA-cleared micro-needling device on the market and is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles of the neck and acne scars in patients ages 22 and older. In as few as three minimally invasive treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance and step out with confidence.

How does micro-needling work? It creates thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound-healing process while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is the effective remodelling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.1

There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
  • Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
  • Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
  • Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.2

Benefits of SkinPen

Little Downtime: It is a perfect treatment for patients with a busy schedule.

Natural Recovery: SkinPen’s mechanical process is versatile and usable year-round.

Safe for all Skin Types: Clinically proven effective on all skin types, Fitzpatrick 1 – 6.

Safe and Sound: The First FDA-cleared micro needling device on the market

Comfortable: A light numbing cream may be used to minimize discomfort

Will micro-needling work for me?
Unlike most alternatives, SkinPen has been clinically shown to be effective for women and men with skin ranging from skin types light to very dark. Likewise, SkinPen’s mechanical process is less abrasive than harsh peels. In addition, when you properly space treatments, the procedures can be administered year-round.

This process results in gorgeously smooth, bright skin, allows skincare products to penetrate deeper into the dermis, provides an unobstructed base for makeup to wear better and longer, and increases cell metabolism – which is just a fancy term that means your skin cells will turnover faster and more consistently.

All of our Esthetician’s are trained on THREE blades, to make sure you are getting what your skin needs, not just one. Pair your Dermaplaning with one of our Peels for optimal results.

Brow Lamination, Shaping & Tinting                $99


What is Microblading?

Microblading is a procedure we offer under permanent makeup that is considered semi-permanent and less invasive. This procedure uses a hand tool with sterile, precise needles to gently etch natural and realistic looking “hairs” into your skin by implanting pigment beneath the surface of the skin. Microblading can correct or reconstruct lost eyebrow shape and structure and is perfect for those who want to enhance their thinning, aging, or over tweezed eyebrows. Pigments are selected based on skin tone and desired brow colour.

How long does the eyebrow last?

This will typically last around 1-2 years depending on age (mature/young skin) and skin type (normal/dry/oily) as each clients individual colour retention will vary. Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure, which means that the pigment isn’t being deposited into the skin as deep as a traditional tattoo and will naturally fade over time. Skincare routines also affect the length of the pigment. Clients who tan or use products with Glycolic Acid will fade faster due to constant skin resurfacing. To maintain colour richness, a touch up is advised every 12 months after the initial procedure.

How long does the procedure take?

The initial session is approximately 2.5 hours. During this, your brow technician will design and shape the your eyebrows for approval. Once both parties are satisfied with the result, the pigment colour is selected and the procedure begins.
The follow-up session is required for minor touch up and colour retention and should be 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure. This session will take about 1-1.5 hours. **The brows are not considered ‘finished’ without the 2nd touch up appointment. **

Who shouldn’t have this procedure done?

Microblading isn’t suitable for everyone so please refrain from having this procedure if:
– Using Accutane or any strong retinoids must be stopped 6 months prior to the procedure.
– Have had Botox or fillers within the last 2 months (If you maintain with Botox consistently, you are ok)
– Have gotten a deep tan or a chemical peel in the last 2 weeks.
– Allergic to lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine, or epinephrine.
– Have keloids.
– Have skin with moles or skin cancer.

Clients should consult your physician first before having this procedure if:
– Pregnant or nursing
– Have diabetes
– Have a heart condition, pacemaker, or using heart medications.
– Have a skin disease or irritation.

*We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who we deem not suitable for this procedure for any other reason. Our brow technicians make the decision to microblade an individual based on their own discretion.

Do I need to shave off my existing eyebrows?

Absolutely NOT! Please do not wax, thread, tweeze, or modify for about 2 weeks before the procedure. This is to allow the brow technician to design the most natural looking eyebrow for your face. You may resume your regular brow maintenance once the brows have healed.

Does it hurt?

In most clients discomfort is minimal due to the use of the most effective topical anesthetics available which provide nearly total numbing of the entire area involved.

What can I expect immediately after the procedure?

After the eyebrow treatment there is no downtime at all. People with very sensitive skin may have a little redness around the brow area, however the redness should subside within 2-3 hours.
