Intense Pulse Light – Xeo Genesis
Xeo Genesis Skin Therapy is an innovative Intense Pulse Light System designed to quickly, safely and comfortably remove sun and age spots from the face, chest, arms, and hands, without gel or anesthetic cream. It is also an effective treatment for redness (Rosacea) and skin rejuvenation.
The Xeo Genesis Difference
Xeo pulsed light system is exceptionally effective at treating pigment at a comfortable energy level. There is no need for anesthetic gel or cream, and superior results occur in just 1-2 treatments.
What areas can be treated?
Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots or freckles can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders, and arms are the most popular areas for treatment because they have typically had the most sun exposure. Both discrete spots and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to treatment.
Treatment of facial Rosacea, fine lines, and pores are also popular targets for Xeo Genesis.
What does the treatment do?
The visible light delivered by the Xeo Genesis procedure is selectively absorbed by the pigmented spots on your skin or skin redness. It’s the heating of these cells that causes the therapeutic effect.
What do treatments feel like?
When the handpiece is placed on your skin, it will feel cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.
How long will the treatment take?
The actual treatment will only take 10-15 minutes.
What happens after the treatment and are there any side effects?
Immediately following the treatment, the spots may start to darken. You may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. This typically subsides within a couple of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, 2-3 treatments are sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be required for very large or dark spots or for densely covered areas.
How safe are these treatments?
Very! Both the CoolGlide ® Xeo and Genesis Plus systems have been FDA cleared. They have been rigorously tested in clinical studies. The pulsed light hand-piece is designed to treat only pigment, not the surrounding skin or tissue.
Will the spots reappear over time?
No. New spots may appear. These too can be removed. Remember to liberally apply sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots.
Can all of my spots be treated this way?
Spots formed by sun exposure can effectively be treated with the Xeo Genesis procedure. There are, however, other types of pigmented lesions, such as birthmarks and moles. Consult with your medical professional to identify the spots most likely to respond well to Xeo Genesis Skin Therapy.
