Laser Genesis helps reverse the signs of aging and stimulates the natural renewal process to improve overall skin quality, resulting in a radiant and youthful complexion. It is known as the “lunchtime laser facial” because it is a quick, relaxing treatment with no downtime. The therapy is safe for any skin type. It improves fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, redness, rosacea and scars. It also stimulates collagen regrowth, leaving skin tighter, and smoother. Many clients choose this treatment the day before a special event because you experience an immediate glow afterward. The results are subtle but apparent after each treatment. Laser Genesis is most popular on the face and neck but can also be used to diminish the appearance of acne or surgical scars on the body.
What to Expect
You can expect a warm sensation during the treatment and may experience a slight reddening, like a very mild sunburn, which usually subsides within a few hours. You can resume normal activities and work immediately afterward. Each patient’s condition and needs vary, but four to six treatments scheduled four weeks apart are usually recommended to achieve optimal results.
Frequently asked questions
Q: What areas can be treated?
A: Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
Q: What is diffuse redness?
A: 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.
Q: What does the procedure feel like?
A: Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
Q: How does Laser Genesis work?
A: By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis improves the appearance of wrinkles through collagen stimulation. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
Q: What can I expect before the treatment?
A: 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 to be treated. The staff will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.
Q: What kind of improvements can you expect with Laser Genesis skin therapy?
A: Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
