What is excel HR?
excel HR is a safe and effective laser that combines two clinically proven laser technologies to target primary signs of aging and photodamage including unwanted pigmentation, redness and veins on the face and body.
How does the excel HR work?
During the treatment, your provider will select one of excel HR's two lasers and customize the treatment settings to target the color and depth of your skin concern. The laser light is converted into heat energy and absorbed only by the cells containing excessive pigment or veins. This causes effective destruction while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.
What does excel HR treat?
Whether it be unwanted veins, redness or pigment on the body or face, excel HR has the capability to treat a wide range of skin concerns safely and effectively. In addition to addressing skin concerns, excel HR can remove unwanted body hair on all body areas and skin types.
What is the treatment like?
excel HR treatments can fell similar to a rubber band snapping against skin. The treatment is tolerated well with little to no discomfort. To enhance comfort and safety throughout the treatment, a cooled treatment tip will be in contact with the skin throughout the session.
What can I expect following the treatment?
Typically, you can return to your normal activities immediately following the treatment. Redness may be expected following the treatment, however it will resolve within a few days. Treated pigmentation and brown spots will darken following the treatment and slough off within 7 to 14 days.
What is Pico Genesis?
Pico Genesis is the latest aesthetic treatment to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, including unwanted freckles, sun spots, age spots and stubborn melasma. The Pico Genesis skin revitalization treatment offers improved skin tone by stimulating your body’s natural collagen production.
How does the Pico Genesis treatment work?
Everyone's skin contains a substance called melanin. It's what gives our skin its color. When melanin occurs in high concentrations, it can result in brown spots and uneven skin tone. PICO Genesis uses laser light to selectively shatter unwanted pigmentation and remodel the upper layer of the skin to return balance + clearance + radiance to your skin.
What areas can be treated?
PICO Genesis treatments are ideal for the face, hands and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of sun damage and excess pigmentation.
What can I expect during a PICO Genesis treatment?
As the laser energy is applied, you'll feel a sensation that patients often compared to an electric rain sensation. Most patients do not find the treatment uncomfortable, but if you do, your treatment provider may apply a topical anesthetic. Immediately after your treatment, you may apply cold air or an ice pack for a short time. You should keep the treated area out of the sun and/or apply sunscreen for protection.
Is there any down time associated with the treatment?
Although you may experience mold redness and swelling for a few hours following the treatment, you can expect to return to your regular activities immediately following the treatment.
What is Pico FX?
PICO FX is a skin revitalization treatment designed to address skin imperfections and combat the signs of aging. From texture concerns to acne scarring, PICO FX offers a safe and effective treatment to restore your skin's youthful appearance.
How does the treatment work?
PICO FX delivers ultra-short fractionated laser energy to create small, gentle micro-wounds in the upper layers of the skin to induce collagen stimulation and remodeling. With fractionated energy, the majority of the skin remains unharmed, resulting in faster healing time. With PICO FX, results can be achieved with a higher safety margin and less downtime than traditional fractional resurfacing treatments.
What can I expect during a treatment?
Most patients describe the treatment as feeling like a series of quick, rubber band snaps. Your provider may offer a topical numbing cream to make you more comfortable during the treatment.
What areas can be treated?
PICO FX is ideal for the face, neck and other areas of the body with noticeable signs of aging, scarring and textural imperfections.
What are the possible side effect and downtime?
Following the PICO FX treatment, your skin will be red for several hours. Over the next few days, your skin will begin the remodeling and repair process, and you may see some darkening of pigment and slight crusting of the treatment area. Your provider will recommend a plan tailored to your skin concerns and treatment expectations.
What conditions does Excel V treat?
Excel V has been shown effective at treating a number of conditions, including:
• Telangiectasias (broken blood vessels)
• Leg veins
• Port wine stains
• Cherry angiomas
• Benign pigmented (brown) skin lesions
Excel V treats mild and severe forms of these conditions. The system may also have a cosmetic benefit for patients who have skin lesions or scars from past injuries or surgeries.
Excel V, developed by Cutera, is a new laser system providing treatment for a variety of vascular skin conditions. Many skin conditions manifest in the form of broken or abnormal blood vessels in the skin, such is the case with rosacea, in which the facial blood vessels dilate excessively causing redness and flushing. Excel V treats these conditions by administering a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser heats the abnormal vessels until they are removed. At the end of treatment, the patient’s natural skin tone and color are restored.
After an initial consultation with the patient, the provider determines if treatment with the Excel V is appropriate. Unlike other procedures, injections or topical anesthesia are not required throughout the duration of the 15 – 30 minute procedure. Depending on the condition, the provider places the Excel V hand piece over the affected areas of the skin until the abnormal vessels diminish. To minimize discomfort and protect the patient’s skin, the Excel V uses a proprietary cooling mechanism.
All skin types identified in the Fitzpatrick skin type classification can be treated with the Excel V system. This classification denotes 6 different skin types, ranging from very light (type I) to very dark (type VI). The 532nm wavelength is ideal for treating skin types I – IV and the 1064nm mode can be used on all skin types I - VI.
The number of sessions depends on various parameters, including the size, thickness and color of the vascular lesion. Superficial vascular lesions such as small telangiectasia and diffused redness are easiest to treat; some patients might see significant improvement after just one treatment.
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that works to even skin tones, treat fine lines and wrinkles, scars, large pores and active acne. This heat-based laser uses the body’s natural processes to stimulate collagen growth to heal and replenish healthy skin tone and texture. This treatment is especially effective in treating rosacea and both acne and other scars. The treatment usually requires about 3-6 treatments, depending on the desired effects, but requires zero downtime or recovery.
Laser Genesis is a form of a non-ablative Nd:YAG laser that uses heat to kill bacteria on and under the skin, preventing future acne outbreaks. The heat also penetrates deep enough into the skin, to stimulate the natural production of collagen, which shrinks pores, evens skin tones, and increases the speed of cell turn over.
Laser Genesis is not painful, but most clients report feeling a warm tingling during the treatment. Many find the treatment rather soothing.

Isolaz™ is a FDA-cleared treatment for mild to moderate acne. It combines a vacuum, broadband light, and topical skincare products to clear clogged pores and reduce blemishes. Although the face is the most common treatment area, Isolaz can also be used on your back and chest. It’s also safe for all skin tones and types.
It works best as a series of treatments. Every patient will have a personalized schedule, but you can expect to need four to five sessions, one to three weeks apart.
Your provider will start by cleansing your skin and giving you a pair of goggles to protect your eyes. Then they’ll direct the vacuum tip of the device over the treatment area. You’ll feel gentle suction and warmth as it removes dead skin cells, dirt, and oil from your pores. While the device suctions, it simultaneously emits a broadband pulsed light which kills acne-causing bacteria. After the area is completely treated, the vacuum clears and opens pores for maximum product penetration.
There’s no downtime after Isolaz™, though your skin may look red.
