AFT improves red flushing skin, due to broken capillaries. The goal is to improve color changes. This treatment goes under the name of IPL, Photo Facial, Pulsed Light Therapy and more recently AFT or Advanced Fluorescent Technology.

How does it work?
•  Intense Pulsed Light targets the melanin and hemoglobin in the surface of the skin.
•  The blood vessels are deeper and more complex and can take several weeks to resolve completely.
•  Melanin is also found in brown spots.
•  Hemoglobin is a main component of red blood cells which travel through broken capillaries or red spots.

This process is called Selective Photo Thermolysis
•  Selective because it targets the unwanted color chromphore.
•  Photo because it uses light energy to heat up (thermo) the color.
•  Heat damages or destroys (lysis) the structure holding the color or chromphore.

Cool Glide Vein Therapy
The Cutera Cool Glide combines the ideal wavelength with the most flexible parameters to delivery a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins telangietasia to deeper blue reticular veins. Patients with dark, light or tan skins can experience outstanding results with minimal down time.

How does it work?
The Cutera Cool Glide delivers pulses of light energy which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body.

Patients with Rosacea have been overwhelmed with the success with their Cool Glide vascular treatment.

Laser Genesis
The Laser Genesis utilizes a non invasive laser to safely treat defuse redness. Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, not discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. Laser Genesis will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.

How does it work?
it gently heats the upper dermis well below your skin's surface, Laser Genesis improves the appearance of wrinkles through collagen stimulation. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

All skin types can be treated due to the unique design and long wavelength.
