Laser Genesis Skin Therapy uses advanced science to achieve vibrant, even skin tone and smooth texture in both men and women. Light penetrates deeply into the skin where collagen is manufactured, stimulating an increase of new collagen production. Unlike harsher methods, this is done without destroying the upper layers of skin (non-ablative). The Laser Genesis procedure safely, discretely and effectively treats scars, uneven textures, fine line wrinkles and large pores. The result is skin with smoother texture and a healthier appearance. The skin is gently warmed during this procedure, and daily activities may be resumed right away. This is truly a rejuvenating experience with no downtime.
Genesis skin rejuvenation employs laser light targeted to the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin, where collagen is made. The laser heats the dermis, causing new collagen production that continues over time. The result is more even skin tone, tighter pores and a smoother skin texture. Laser also targets the microvasculature (tiny vessels) beneath the skin surface, decreasing diffuse redness and ruddy complexions.
Laser Genesis improves the skin’s overall appearance, particularly on face, neck and chest, decreasing fine line wrinkles and restoring even skin tones. Laser Genesis evens out acne scarring and is particularly effective in combination with other treatments such as chemical peels. Genesis can also be used to improve the appearance of other scars anywhere on the body. Genesis tightens pores and improves skin texture, smooths ruddy complexions and diffuses excessive facial redness, including that caused by rosacea.
Laser Genesis produces a gentle warming during treatment that most patients enjoy. Immediately following the treatment, the warm feeling continues for about thirty minutes. Many patients report a pleasant, mild tingling feeling and a feeling of increased firmness for a day following the treatment.
You may return to normal activities immediately following your Laser Genesis treatment. Most patients notice a healthy, rosy glow following Laser Genesis. Aftercare instructions simply include the use of sunscreen as well as consuming plenty of water. This is truly a rejuvenation procedure with “no downtime”.
The number of treatments needed depends upon the problem being treated, but usually ranges from four to six treatments spaced three to four weeks apart. Results are generally seen after just one treatment, but a series of treatments is required for optimum results. Depending on the concern being addressed, your provider may recommend other treatments in conjunction with Laser Genesis, such as Vitalize Peel or Titan non-surgical facelift. These may be alternated with Genesis if needed.
One of the greatest advantages of Laser Genesis is that the results continue to accumulate after each treatment and continue far beyond your last treatment. In fact, accelerated collagen production continues following Laser Genesis, peaking at about 12 weeks after your last treatment, then continuing at a steady increased rate. Because the natural ageing process is of course continuing, it is difficult to state precisely how long results will last, but benefits seem apparent for several years. Sun protection and attention to skin care are necessary to maintain optimal results. In the case of acne scarring and rosacea, it is necessary to control the underlying condition in order to avoid further skin disruption.
Genesis of the entire face is generally performed in less than one hour. Because the procedure is quite comfortable, no anaesthesia or medication is necessary.
