The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treats fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin textures, diffuse redness (rosacea) and scars.
What areas can be treated?
Patients report excellent results over their entire face and necks. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
What does the procedure feel like?
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about ½ inch above your skin. Some patients say it’s similar to the feelings of laying in the sun. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
How does Laser Genesis work?
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
What can I expect before the treatment?
You will not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment. Before the actual Laser Genesis treatment, you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area as to be treated. For quicker results you may want to have a Hydrafacial Microdermabrasion before your treatment. That will remove all your excess dead skin cells to help the laser penetrate more evenly.
How many treatments will I need?
The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult your practitioner.
What are the possible side effects?
Although most patients report few side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment.
What kind of textural improvements can you expect with Laser Genesis skin therapy?
Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a creamier, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
