Cutera’s medical grade Intense Pulsed Light technology (IPL) can be safely used on a wide range of skin types to remove sun spots and red veins.
Acutip delivers light energy safely and effectively to treat individual sun spots and facial veins. The cooled tip is ideally sized for tracing small vessels on the nose, cheek, chin and other areas of the face. It can just as easily be used to remove sun or age spots found on the neck, décolletage and hands.
How is your treatment different from other treatment alternatives?
Our light technology doesn’t involve needles. Also, it minimises any bruising or irritation of the surrounding skin.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments depends on how many sun spots or veins you have in a particular area, but typically one to three treatments are sufficient.
How long does each treatment take?
Each treatment takes between 5 and 15 minutes.
What does it feel like?
Patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of light are delivered. No local anaesthetic or pain medication is necessary.
Is it safe?
Yes. Hundreds of thousands of treatments with this type of intense pulsed light have been done to date. As with all medical procedures there is a slight degree of risk and we will discuss this with you thoroughly during a consultation.
How much does it cost?
This depends on the extent of the areas you would like to have treated and the number of treatments estimated to achieve clearance. This will be discussed with you in detail during a consultation.
Can anyone have it done?
The best candidates are those with tiny veins on their face or chest. This treatment is not used to treat leg veins. We will evaluate whether your veins are appropriate for this treatment at the time of a consultation.
Is your IPL machine approved and registered with the TGA?
Yes, the Cutera Xeo platform is approved and registered with the Therapeutic Goods Administration. The product ID is 171293 and ARTG number is 99849.
