What is Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive and comfortable procedure that uses a laser to gently heat the skin. It can help smooth the skin and reduce the look of fine lines, dark spots, and wrinkles. Typically, its primary use is to fade scarring, redness, and broken blood vessels, and improve the look of rosacea.
Laser genesis works for people of all ages and skin tones who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines or redness. Pregnant women should not get any laser treatments.
How does Laser Genesis work?
Laser genesis works by heating the dermis directly under the skin; this stimulates collagen production, which plumps the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The heat from the laser can also constrict blood vessels, which helps fight redness and rosacea. It can also help treat acne and scarring.
What is the procedure for Laser Genesis?
Laser genesis is a quick procedure that’s typically done in under 30 minutes. It’s done by a highly trained aesthetician or a cosmetic dermatologist in an office.
The laser itself looks like a small wand that’s hooked up to a larger machine. You will wear goggles, and in some cases, your hair will be covered. The procedure itself is completely painless. You will feel light heat on the face, and some people say it’s pleasant, almost like sun on the face. You can drive yourself home.
Are there any risks or side effects?
Laser genesis is considered a very low risk procedure. The most common side effect is redness after treatment that will typically clear on its own within a few days. If you’ve ever had a reaction to a laser of any type, consult with your doctor before a laser genesis treatment.
What to expect after Laser Genesis
Recovery from laser genesis is minimal, and you should be able to resume normal activities immediately. You should see noticeable results within 3 to 4 weeks as the new collagen and skin cells created by laser genesis rise to the surface.
The best results will typically appear after three to six treatments, depending on the condition of your skin and what you’re looking to address, and you will likely need a maintenance procedure every year.
