Aesthetic laser treatments have many uses, ranging from the elimination of unwanted body hair to the restoration of your skin’s youthfulness. However, laser treatments using outdated technology can be less effective and even pose additional risks for patients. Luckily, new technology provided by Cartessa offers safe procedures for all skin complexions and more powerful, effective treatments.
In addition to improved safety, Cartessa laser treatments produce outstanding results after fewer treatments for most people. These procedures typically come with low risk, few side effects, and a short recovery, making them popular among our patients. If you are looking to rejuvenate your appearance and boost your confidence, consider Cartessa treatments in Westminster to address a variety of aesthetic concerns. Reach out to our clinic to discuss your goals and learn more about this revolutionary technology.
Traditional laser hair removal treatments were considered unsafe for people with tanned and darker skin tones due to a higher risk of hyperpigmentation. The treatment eliminates hair by destroying hair follicles with laser energy, but older technology relies on the pigmentation within the hair to attract the energy source. As a result, laser hair removal was most effective for patients with lighter complexions but darker hair and posed additional risks for patients with more melanin in their skin.
However, Cartessa treatments for hair removal utilize longer wavelengths for laser energy, which penetrates deeper into the skin. This produces more effective results and bypasses melanin in the skin. The technology also uses innovative cooling features to protect the skin and eliminate any discomfort during treatment. Cartessa treatment patients of any skin complexion typically see more substantial and longer-lasting laser hair removal results than other procedures.
Our Westminster patients seek Cartessa treatments to revitalize and reduce various aesthetic concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, and pigmentation issues from age or sun exposure. One popular treatment is an IPL photofacial to minimize skin conditions, aging signs, and pigment concerns such as sun damage, freckles, and spider veins. During the treatment, intense pulsed light from lasers breaks up pigmentation and pigment-producing cells in affected areas.
In addition to reducing excess pigmentation, Cartessa IPL photofacial treatments stimulate collagen production to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles over time. Additionally, the treatment encourages the body’s natural healing process to repair skin and tissue damage by increasing collagen production. Since an IPL photofacial with Cartessa technology penetrates deeper into the skin, the treatment is safe for darker skin tones, unlike traditional IPL photofacial.
As veins age, their functioning may decline, resulting in inadequate blood flow and buildup. This can cause visible vascular lesions to develop beneath the skin, which many patients wish to diminish. Though vascular lesions such as spider veins are not a medical concern in most cases, there are options for aesthetically improving these areas and regaining a more youthful look. Cartessa treatments can reduce the visibility of vascular lesions by using laser energy to redirect blood flow and create an even skin tone.
Vascular lesion treatments with Cartessa use energy to collapse affected veins on the face, forcing blood to go to healthier veins nearby. Cartessa technology can achieve a more even appearance to the skin without invasive procedures that leave visible scarring. As with all Cartessa treatments, the treatment also eliminates additional risks of hyperpigmentation for tanned and darker skin tones by penetrating the melanin-containing dermal layers.
There is a wide range of aesthetic laser treatments for revitalizing your appearance and addressing your specific concerns. Cartessa treatments in Westminster achieve beautiful results for patients of any skin tone, type, and condition. The innovative technology is quicker, safer, and more effective for skin rejuvenation, laser hair removal, and vascular lesion treatments than traditional lasers.
Though several sessions may be necessary for your ideal results, Cartessa treatments are noninvasive, painless, and relatively quick with few side effects. Get in touch with Artemis Vein & Aesthetic Center today to discuss your goals and learn how we can help achieve them.
