Laser Genesis therapy is a non-invasive technology to safely, discretely, and effectively treat imperfect skin. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment without unwanted side effects, like bruising or excessive skin irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel. If you have wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, or even rosacea, Laser Genesis skin therapy might be the treatment you need.
If you’re interested in learning about how a laser therapy treatment can improve your skin’s tone and texture, visit our Mt. Vernon office for a consultation with one of our cosmetic dermatologists. We’ll assess your skin and make a recommendation based on your lifestyle and desired results.
What Areas can be Treated?
Laser therapy patients report excellent results over their entire face and/or neck. Patients can also choose to only have perioral (mouth) wrinkles treated.
How does Laser Genesis Treatment Work?
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, this laser therapy stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness, which can help mitigate rosacea symptoms.
What does the Procedure Feel Like?
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth, hovering around ½ inch above your skin. You can immediately return to normal activities after the procedure, but you should wear sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Treatment results are often subtle. Each treatment builds upon the last to create a customized result. On average, you may require four to six sessions in order to achieve optimal results, but every patient’s condition and needs vary.
What Happens after the Treatment?
Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven texture caused by aging, sun damage, or scars. You will see a more creamy, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
What are the Possible Side Effects?
Although most patients report few, if any, side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours after treatment. The skin will also remain sensitive to sunlight in the hours directly following a treatment.
Is Laser Genesis the Treatment for You?
