Our skin covers and protects our muscles, bones and internal organs. As such it is exposed to daily stresses such as sun, pollution, chemicals and other such factors. This makes it virtually impossible to cover up any signs of ageing, wear and tear.
Moisturising, exfoliating and using a good sunscreen all help of course, as does drinking lots of water. Regardless, when it comes down to it, our skin ends up with all sorts of spots, blemishes and imperfections that just don’t budge unless we ramp up the maintenance a notch.
This is where Cutera come in. Cutera are a US-based team of laser engineers who developed ND:Yag technology. They are an awesome bunch of people in the know when it comes to combining the latest in technology with skin care and maintenance.
They release some of the most advanced and results-driven laser and lights on the market and we want to bring them to your attention just in time for you to find a practitioner and sort yourself out before Christmas time where many of us have time off (beach, lazing in the park, showing a bit more skin, being body confident, etc.!).
Two of their most popular and rave-worthy technologies are their Limelight IPL and Laser Genesis. Whilst these technologies do cross over with some of the issues they can treat, let’s start with some of the skin problems the Laser Genesis can help address.
- Age spots
- Sun Damage
- Skin Lesions
- Facial Veins
- Spider Veins
- Uneven Skin Textures
- Acne and Acne Scars
- Uneven Skin Textures
- Hyper Pigmentation
So basically, the Laser Genesis really covers a lot of skin issues and so if you’ve got something you’ve been dreaming of getting sorted when it comes to your skin, ask your local practitioner if it can help you.
Laser Genesis is a laser. Laser rejuvenation works by gently heating the upper dermis underneath the surface of the skin to increase collagen production and new skin cell growth. It helps shrinks enlarged pores; smoothes fine lines, fades scarring, and evens out bumpy skin texture. Moreover, Laser Genesis closes the capillaries and tiny veins that cause redness on the skin.
So, Laser Genesis works in one way and the Limelight IPL Facial works another. The Limelight is a great solution for vascular lesions [veins and capillaries] and benign pigmented skin [age spots, sun spots and freckles]. It is proven to show improvement to skin tone and blemishes due to sun damage and premature ageing.

Limelight is an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment that releases numerous light wavelengths to the damaged area that the skin then absorbs. The light energy then breaks down the target in the affected area without harming the healthy surrounding skin surface. The body then removes the damaged skin, leaving a well-rejuvenated complexion that is smoother and clearer. It can assist you with:
- Skin rejuvenation, fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Acne and problem skin
- Sensitive and inflammatory conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis
- Post care after laser treatment

So, different people and their skin might be suited to the different types of treatment technologies depending on what your skin concerns are. Some of us are better treated with a laser and others a light based technology. Because they both work in different ways and one might be better than the other for your particular skin issues, you should definitely ask your doctor or find a local clinic that does the procedures. At your consultations it will become clear which treatment will be more suited to address your particular issues.
Both of these technologies are amazing and have been producing some very happy recipients of the treatments! As we mentioned earlier, both the Laser Genesis and Limelight IPL are from Cutera who are renowned for providing the beauty industry with cutting edge beauty treatments that work.
Remember the Cutera Enlighten for Tattoo Removal? If you haven’t already read Angel’s story on the subject, you have to check that out. Well, that’s Cutera.
So, as we all head towards another Christmas time, where most of us catch up with family, friends, loved ones, and hopefully take some time out to reconnect and relax; we say prepare yourself by finally sorting out any skin imperfections or issues that you’ve been ignoring or putting off up to now.
