What does the Cutera XEO Treat? 

The Cutera XEO is a versatile treatment platform that can be customized to address a wide range of skin needs. While we primarily choose this device to treat brown spots and age spots, due to its efficacy and safety in this area, the laser can also be used to improve:

When Will I See Results?

 Results after a Cutera XEO treatment take some time to develop. First, you might notice treated brown spots getting darker, which often concerns patients that are expecting them to disappear. Rest assured that after the darkening, you will notice the spots start to flake away. This process can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks.

How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?

There is minimal downtime after a Cutera XEO procedure. After treatment, you should be able to resume your normal activities. It is important to protect treated skin from the sun in the following weeks to prevent potential damage.

Questions and Answers

Q: Is Cutera XEO Safe?

A: Yes. Cutera XEO was approved by the FDA in 2013 and has a track record of safety and efficacy. Our board-certified physicians have extensive experience using this device and will use their expertise to customize your treatment so it is as safe and effective as possible. 

Q: How Many Treatments Will I Need?

A: Most patients will see very good results in 1-3 treatments, although some patients might require extra sessions to achieve the best possible outcome. 

Q: How Long Do Results Last?

A: When this treatment is used to remove brown spots, the results are long-lasting. However, sun exposure can result in new spots forming. We recommend using sun protection consistently after your procedure to prevent further damage. 

Q: Are There Any Side Effects?

A: Side effects from the Cutera XEO are minimal and temporary. Some patients will experience mild redness after the procedure. Darkening of spots is also normal before they flake off the skin. Sun protection is a must, as freshly treated skin can be especially vulnerable to damage.
