Cutera: Xeo, Solera, CoolGlide > cutera problems

i purchased cutera xeo platform around 2007. during the purchase procedure i was not fully informed on "disposable" nature of Titan hand piece. I also been told that cutera is the best laser available out there. however, i had to service the platform three times in 1 yr; despite the fact that i only used this laser may be on 20 procedures.
would anybody be willing to share their experiences with me? thanks, ika

Cutera sucks. You could have gotten the BBL IPL from Sciton with an infrared filter for zero cost and no disposables.

The best you can do now is make the best of it, hate Cutera and spew venon about Cutera whenever you get the chance (this is what I do).

A used Titan is worth about $10,000 or less.

Sorry to hear that you were ripped off. I was ripped off to the tune of $250,000. I rarely use any of my Cutera Lasers because they suck.

The claims made by Titan are misleading and the treatments have proven to be ineffective and costly to both patient and Dr.I used my Titan for a short time starting in 2006 and when I discovered that it did not work and I was unwilling to "rip off" patients I stopped using Titan and the leasing company repossessed the equipment (I had already paid more than $30,000 toward the lease of the Titan) and next month I head for the courts for a settlement conference.Not a fun way to head into retirement.

Tracie,

Please turn off your caps. Now, I would have to disagree with you on your viewpoint of Cutera. The first laser I bought was a Cutera Xeo. The only thing I still use is the 1064. They make a great 1064 but that is it. I also own the Titan and the Sciton SkinTyte and I would never purchase the titan again and I would purchase the SkinTyte. I have many patients that have had both Titan treatments as well as SkinTyte treatments and not one of them request the Titan again. Many of the posts on here are personal experiences with different lasers so telling somebody that they are placing misleading information when it is their opinion is wrong. It is OK to give your opinion and why you have come to that conclusion is great.

LH, why your pts did not repeat titan? Was it for pn or lack of effect?

06.25 | Unregistered CommenterMS

The theme I see, time and time again, is this: all IPLs and any IR wavelength other than 1064 has a much higher probability of causing adverse events, due to overheating epidermal melanin. It's not worth the risk of these other modalities. I have particularly good experience with the Aerolase 1064, which is less painful than others and still gives great results, but in general 1064 gives you the ability to sleep at night unlike any IPL or other IR devices no matter how good your training or technique, the day will come when you burn someone with those.

Hi, is there any way to get the calibration software for the Cutera models?
