Why Cutera

I have been a “partner” with Cutera since my initial very positive impression of the company some 20 years ago. At that time, they launched the powerful and very reliable “cool glide” neodymium YAG laser. Since that time, Cutera has proven to be an innovative company, introducing the most powerful greenlight laser, an array of novel ablative lasers, and more recently, radiofrequency based noninvasive fat reduction tools. Our group conducted clinical trials with the Enlighten pico second laser and were impressed with the laser design. The engineers at Cutera combine innovation, practicality, and reliability in their devices. The willingness to listen to physicians in the field allows Cutera to produce some of the best energy based technologies in cutaneous medicine.


E. Victor Ross, MD, is a dermatologist specializing in laser surgery of the skin. He uses a broad array of technologies to reduce red and brown skin lesions, wrinkles and unwanted hair, improve spider veins of the legs and improve the appearance of scars, including acne scars. Other newer noninvasive skin tightening, and fat reduction tools are also available in the practice. Dr. Ross also provides a variety of injectables and fillers to relax upper face lines and replace lost volume of the lower face.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Ross conducts research on novel approaches to skin rejuvenation. He was the first Navy-sponsored fellow in photomedicine and lasers at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he conducted research and clinical trials in photodynamic therapy and novel laser applications. He was elected president of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), the world’s largest professional organization dedicated to promoting excellence in patient care. He was also elected to the board of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Ross was recognized by the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) with the Caroline and William Mark Memorial Award, as well as the Leon Goldman Award, for his lifetime contributions to research.

Presently, he is the director of the Scripps Clinic Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology Center and a frequent lecturer at national and international meetings on cutaneous laser medicine. He also serves on the editorial board of two major dermatologic journals.
