Treatment Areas

In the past, laser skin rejuvenation therapies were either ablative, treating surface skin and requiring a substantial healing period; or non-ablative, acting on deep tissues with repeated treatments. Laser Genesis is a laser treatment that uses a new modality, bulk heating. The laser heats the dermis, sparing the epidermis, which stimulates neocollagenesis – new natural collagen production. This results, in improved texture, tightening, and appearance of the skin.

Therefore, Laser Genesis is ideal for:

  • All areas of the face
  • Neck
  • Chest

Noticeable Improvement

This versatile treatment rejuvenates sun damaged skin and signs of premature aging. It also refines troubled skin texture and evens out blotchy tone. Your friends will be asking you, “Did you change your hair, get a good night’s rest?” You will look better and your friends won’t know why! Dr. Amanda Lloyd recommends Laser Genesis for:

  • Rough texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scars

Laser Genesis - Encinitas CA
With age, you face and skin will lose its youthful appearance, developing age signs and taking on a tired appearance. The Laser Genesis treatment available from Dr. Amanda Lloyd helps patients who want to achieve a youthful appearance by stimulating collagen production to give natural results.
What is Laser Genesis?

The Laser Genesis is a long-pulsed Nd:YAG 1064 nanometer wavelength laser, which selectively targets water to stimulate your body to make its own collagen with no downtime.

Where can the Laser Genesis be used?

The Laser Genesis can be used anywhere you want to build collagen. Most commonly, it’s used on the face, neck, chest, and backs of the hands.

How does Laser Genesis work?

The Laser Genesis works by selectively targeting water which results in bulk heating of the lower half of the skin this stimulates your body to produce its own natural collagen, which provides support and structure to your skin. This is something we want to do, because it gets rid of those fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the tone and texture of the skin.

Are you a candidate for Laser Genesis?

Anyone looking to improve the tone and texture of their skin, decrease the pore size, and get rid of those fine lines and wrinkles is an excellent candidate for the Laser Genesis.

What happens on my treatment day?

On your treatment day, you will arrive at the Skin & Vein Institute and after check-in, we will bring you back to the numbing room this is where you will have numbing cream applied to your skin, and you will sit and relax for about 45 minutes. You will then be brought to the treatment room where you’ll be treated with the Laser Genesis. This feels like a warm sensation on the skin and then the treatment is over. It is virtually painless. And the best part is – there is no downtime.

What are the post-care instructions after a Laser Genesis treatment?

After your laser genesis treatment, your skin will be pink for about 30 minutes. It is important to wear your broad-spectrum sunscreen, which is an SPF of at least 30, every day to protect your skin from the sun.

Is Laser Genesis safe and effective?

Laser Genesis is both safe and effective. If you are looking to improve the tone and texture of your skin, decrease your pores and get rid of some of those fine lines and wrinkles, the Laser Genesis is the laser for you.

The Procedure

Laser Genesis is noninvasive, safe, and effective. Patients report a pleasant warming sensation as the mobile hand piece is passed over the treatment area. There is no pain, thus no anesthetic is needed. A typical session lasts about 30 minutes. Side effects are mild – possibly pinkness and continued warmth for about half an hour, or tingling. You may return to normal activities right away, and wear makeup.

You see changes after the first treatment, and continued improvement as collagen remodeling occurs over time. Dr. Lloyd usually recommends four to six sessions, spaced a month apart, for optimal results. Textural improvement and youthful glow are long lasting, as it is your natural collagen, however, you continue to age, so maintenance is recommended, and daily sun protection and a good skin care routine are a must! Most patients are so thrilled with the results that they are eager to schedule periodic re-treatment.

For a healthy-looking, even-toned complexion, call Skin & Vein Institute to schedule a Laser Genesis consultation. The numbers are (760) 642-6674 (new patients) and (760) 452-2080 (current patients).
