There was a time not all that long ago when having a more beautiful complexion and more youthful-looking skin meant undergoing an invasive procedure like facelift surgery or painful dermabrasion. But advances in science and technology have changed all that, and today, many women and men are opting for laser treatments to help them “turn back the hands of time” so they can enjoy skin that looks and feels younger and healthier.
At West Coast Aesthetics and Veins, we offer xeo® Laser skin rejuvenation, an all-in-one laser system that can treat multiple issues in a single session. The xeo system uses patented technology that enables Dr. Suri to “switch” from one treatment option to another, helping patients get the treatment they need in less time and with better results. That means that instead of undergoing multiple treatments with different systems — and waiting weeks or even months between those different treatments — you can have all your concerns treated at the same time, using the same system.
Light and lasers
Xeo uses both intense light and laser energies to penetrate skin, addressing aging issues and other concerns at the deeper layers of skin where most damage occurs.
The system offers three separate technologies rolled into one:
- xeo’s Laser Genesis® reduces fine lines and wrinkles and gets rid of diffuse redness and other uneven skin tones
- Limelight® works on veins and pigmented areas and lesions
- Titan® technology focuses on providing deep heat energy necessary for skin rejuvenation and natural collagen formation
The use of both lasers and intense light enables the xeo system to address a wide range of problems, like wrinkles, scars, and unsightly veins, all with just one device.
Unlike “ablative” treatments that remove the upper layers of skin, the xeo system triggers healing from inside so your recovery is faster and you won’t have the weeks of peeling and discomfort that can occur with invasive procedures. Instead, the penetrating light and laser energy stimulate natural healing processes that help skin renew itself more quickly and promote the development of new collagen fibers, one of skin’s “building blocks” that help skin stay resilient and firm.
With the xeo laser system, Dr. Suri can treat an array of issues, including:
- wrinkles and fine lines
- acne scars and other superficial scars
- hyperpigmentation and redness, including the redness associated with rosacea and sun damage
- age spots and sun spots
- skin tags (small overgrowths of skin)
- noticeable facial veins, including veins on the cheeks and around the nose
- uneven skin texture
- unwanted hair growth
Plus, the heat generated by xeo treatments can help tighten skin so it feels more toned and younger. And because xeo’s technology helps promote collagen development beneath the skin, you’ll continue to see results for weeks and even months afterward.
During and after your xeo treatment session
Treatment with the xeo system is comfortable. Most patients report they feel nothing more than a warming sensation as the laser and light energy penetrates their skin. The length of your treatment session will depend on how many areas you’re having treated. Dr. Suri will work with you to develop the treatment plan that’s just right for helping you achieve your goals. Because xeo works by helping your skin heal itself, most patients benefit from a series of four to six treatments spaced out over several weeks to provide the skin with the continuing support it needs to develop new collagen and heal existing damage.
After your treatment, your skin might be a little red, but that will subside within a day or so. Depending on what issues you’re having treated, some results may be visible shortly after your treatment, while others (like tone and texture improvement and reduction of wrinkles and lines) will appear over time as your skin builds new collagen networks.
