Laser Genesis FAQs
What skin conditions will Laser Genesis help?
Laser Genesis is a non-ablative procedure that gently warms the upper dermis. The heat stimulates collagen to reduce wrinkles and acne scars. The NdYag laser treatment is absorbed by facial vessels and melasma helping to break them down thus improving the appearance of your skin.
What is the difference between Laser Genesis and other laser technologies?
The Laser Genesis procedure is a comfortable, non-ablative form of skin therapy. It not only targets facial vessels and rosacea but patients with fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage have also seen remarkable results. With this laser treatment patients see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without the unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation.
What areas can be treated with Laser Genesis?
This laser treatment can be used on any body area safely except for eyelids.
What are facial vessels, telangiectasia and diffused redness?
Telangiectasia and facial vessels are dilated capillaries that commonly appear on the surface of the face and in areas around the nose, cheeks and above the neckline. Prolonged sun exposure, aging, trauma, genetics and other factors can cause capillaries to become dilated and visible. Laser Genesis treatment will help reduce this condition.
What can I expect before the Laser Genesis treatment?
There are no complicated pretreatment rituals with this procedure. Prior to the actual laser treatment your face will be cleaned and in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. It is suggested to stop the use of mechanical and chemical exfoliates (Retin –A, Renova, glycolic acids, vitamin C products, and any other potential irritants) 3 days prior to treatment and reduce sun exposure.
How many Laser Genesis treatments do I need?
On average, you may require 4 to 6 laser treatments to achieve the results you are looking for. A recent study has shown that 4 laser genesis treatments at monthly intervals stimulates your own collagen production for a year.
Is the Laser Genesis treatment painful?
The Laser Genesis treatment is not painful and therefore does not require the use of any topical anesthetic. Typically patients will describe their experience during treatment as relaxing and comfortable. You will feel a gentle warming of your skins surface as the laser light penetrates the upper dermis of your skin. For acne scaring a more aggressive treatment is required which can be slightly uncomfortable but bearable for the impressive results seen.
What results to expect after the Laser Genesis treatment?
Immediately after the laser genesis treatment you will experience a sun kissed glow. Many clients have this laser treatment before a special event because of the instant effects. Results are subtle but noticeable and increase over the month following laser treatment. Patients notice a lightening of age spots, a reduction in the sight of facial veins and an overall smoothing of the texture and fine lines. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
What are the possible side effects of Laser Genesis?
The most commonly noticed side effect might be a slight redness that disappears a few hours after treatment.
Is it safe to drive after having Laser Genesis treatment?
