Patients near Encinitas ask what to expect from a Laser Genesis skin rejuvenating treatment
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to even skin tone and texture. It is ideal for patients with the following conditions:
- Fine lines
- Large pores
- Acne scars
This non-ablative laser uses heat to kill bacteria on and under the skin to prevent acne breakouts. The heat penetrates deep into the skin which stimulates the body’s natural response system to generate new collagen. This makes the skin more healthy by shrinking pores, evening skin tones, smoothing rough skin, and increasing the speed of cell turnover.
What to expect from a Laser Genesis skin treatment
Patients of all skin tones and types can be treated with the Laser Genesis. Topical numbing is applied prior to treatment and during treatment with the Laser Genesis, you feel a slight warmth under the skin. The treatment is very comfortable and relaxing. The laser is passed across the treatment area approximately half an inch above the surface and there are no breaks in the skin, it is completely non-invasive. After treatment, there is little to no downtime. It can be used on the face, neck, and chest.
Side effects are rare following Laser Genesis treatments. If there are side effects, they are mild and may include skin pinkness or redness. This is more commonly found among patients with very sensitive skin. Any redness will subside within a couple hours. It is a very safe and effective procedure. There is no downtime associated with this laser. You can have it done at lunchtime and then return to your regular daily activities without anyone knowing that you had a skin rejuvenating procedure done.
Typically, patients do a series of three treatments. The number of treatments needed depends upon the severity of the skin problem being treated. However, one treatment can give you a refreshed look right before a big event or something important on your calendar. Laser Genesis is an excellent treatment that can be combined with other treatments such as the Clear & Brilliant if you want to get a double boost of collagen and really combat those fine lines.
Patients begin to see changes in their skin within a few days of being treated with Laser Genesis. Significant results are visible three to nine weeks after the initial treatment. Since the treatment targets collagen production which is deep within the skin, it takes some time for the newly repaired and rejuvenated collagen to be apparent on the skin’s surface.
The actual amount of time it takes to see results depends upon the number of treatments performed and your skin’s condition prior to starting. The longevity of the results also varies from patient to patient. Following a good skin care regimen and maintenance program can extend your results.
The Laser Genesis is both safe and effective. It has no downtime and is an excellent laser choice if you are looking to refresh your look and improve the tone and texture of your skin. Laser Genesis can also help with acne, acne scars, and tone and pore size of the skin. Patients achieve visible results.
