Collagen and elastin are our skin’s building blocks, adding strength, volume, and retaining moisture. However, our skin’s ability to generate collagen gradually decreases as we grow older. Cartessa’s Light EVO system triggers your skin’s natural abilities to produce collagen and elastin, contouring and tightening your skin tissues. During the procedure, the device’s microneedle electrodes deliver bi-polar energy deep within the skin tissues without damaging the epidermis, triggering your body’s natural wound healing process. Consequently, your body produces collagen and elastin, gradually tightening your skin tissues. You see immediate results that continue improving for several weeks after the treatment.
Wrinkles & Lines
Wrinkles and fine lines appear due to the gradual loss of collagen and elastin from your skin’s dermis due to age. Cartessa’s Light EVO Series restores collagen and elastin to reduce or eliminate wrinkles and fine lines from your skin. During the procedure, our doctors use extremely precise tools and settings to deliver pulse-laser energy into the skin, triggering its ability to produce collagen and elastin, which restores your skin’s youthfulness. The intense laser system produces immediate results, but it takes a few days or weeks before seeing the best results of the procedure.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal involves the selective treatment of hair follicles without damaging the surrounding tissues. The Light EVO Series allows us to target hair follicles precisely with laser light, which is absorbed by the melanin. The laser light energy converts to thermal energy, which damages the hair’s structure, leading to instant hair removal. You may need 6 to 10 treatments with intervals of 4 to 8 weeks to see optimal results. Laser hair removal is suitable for all skin types, but only for people with black or brown hair since light-blonde, gray, red, and white hair don’t absorb laser light.
The pulsed-laser light of the Light EVO device specifically targets the pigmented spots on your skin’s surface. As such, the doctor can personalize the treatment to target the smallest pigmented spots without damaging the surrounding tissues. The pigmented spots absorb the light energy and gradually darken over the next 2 to 3 days, before flaking off completely. You can expect the treatment’s best results to appear within 10 days, but you may need 1 to 3 treatments with intervals of 3 to 4 weeks to achieve optimal results.
Vascular Lesions & Leg Veins
Spider veins and leg veins occur due to abnormal blood vessels with excessive accumulated blood. The Light EVO devices boast a large and powerful beam size that target vascular lesions and spider veins without damaging the surrounding tissues. The laser energy from the device heats the blood vessels to seal them shut. The abnormal leg veins eventually get absorbed by the body, fading away from the skin’s surface. You may need multiple sessions, depending on the number of vascular lesions on your skin.
