What is Laser Genesis™

Laser Genesis™ is a non-invasive laser light treatment designed to target fine lines, acne scars, rosacea, large pores, and uneven skin tone on both men and women. Practitioners often suggest this therapy to diminish recent scaring on other parts of the body also.

Why Laser Genesis™

The number of treatments needed will depend on your individual goals however normally over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis™ can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance. Whilst the individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic. Some of the benefits of Laser Genesis™ are as follows:

  • Safely and gently treat diffuse redness
  • Fades acne scarring
  • Continuously stimulates new collagen production
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • Naturally promotes a healthy look

How does it work

Over time, as we age, both collagen and elastin in the skin degrade. It is these two proteins, collagen and elastin that give skin its strength, firmness and elasticity which, once reduced, contribute to signs of aging. Laser Genesis™ works by gently heating the upper dermis which is located well below your skin’s surface where both collagen and elastin are produced. The impact of this simulates the body’s natural healing process, boosting both elastin and collagen growth, responsible for increasing cell turnover, improving the appearance of wrinkles and shrinking pore sizes. In addition to this, the heat generated in dilated capillaries helps to reduce facial redness, including that caused by Rosacea by causing blood trapped below the surface to dissipate.

Throughout the treatment, you can expect to experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface, one which patients often describe as relaxing and therapeutic. Whist the skin may appear rosy and feel warm for a short period of time following the treatment, there is no down time and normal activities can be resumed right away.

Am I a Candidate?

Laser Genesis™ can be performed on any skin type. Ideal candidates include patients with rosacea, acne, fine lines, large pores, and textural irregularities. It’s suitable for all skin types and even safe on tanned skin. Unlike some other laser treatments, patients can have this treatment all year round.
