What is laser genesis?
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive procedure that gently heats the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface and stimulates collagen regrowth. Laser Genesis is a laser that uses a single wavelength of light to target a specific molecule in the skin called a chromophore.
What areas can be treated?
Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their entire faces, necks and decollete. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
What is diffuse redness?
Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, not discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. Laser Genesis will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.
How does it feel?
Patients have described this treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming feeling on your skin’s surface as we work with the laser handpiece, which hovers over your skin. It has been described as feeling like a warm raindrop. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
What are the contraindications?
Laser Genesis is not an option if:
You are pregnant.
You are currently being treated for skin cancer.
What happens before the treatment?
Make up and moisturizer will need to be removed. If there is excess hair in the area it will need to be removed.
What is the aftercare?
You can return to your regular activities after your session. If you are spending time outdoors, please ensure you wear sunscreen. Most people report little to no side effects, though it's most common to have a slight redness that disappears a few hours after your service.
What to expect after your treatment
Avoid sun exposure and use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen to prevent further sun damage.
Drink plenty of water to keep skin hydrated.
How many treatments are needed?
With subtle results, most clients require four to six treatments, though results do vary depending on conditions and skin concerns. A consultation with us will allow us to set up a treatment plan to help guide you towards the skin you always wanted. This is a great pre-juvenation treatment for people in their mid- twenties and on, who want to keep their skin youthful, clear and radiant.
What kind of results does Laser Genesis yield?
Laser Genesis can help restore a youthful glow and appearance by smoothing uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage, and scarring. You will have a creamy, healthier complexion as large pores shrink, minor imperfections diminish and redness fades.
