What laser genesis is used for:
How does the procedure work?
The Laser Genesis is a minimally invasive laser that works to combat conditions typically associated with the signs of skin ageing and excessive sun damage such as fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin tone and the background redness that can be associated with skin diseases such as rosacea. Where there are individual broken blood vessels the Laser Genesis can be combined with Vascular Laser within the one session.
The treatment works by penetrating the skin’s surface and gently heating the upper dermis where collagen lives. The heat stimulates the collagen to regrow and improves the skin’s quality from within. Additional heat is generated when treating dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
What will the patient experience during the procedure?
During the treatment the patient will feel a gradual warming of their skin. It has been described as feeling like very warm rain and does not require pain relief. Patients often describe it as relaxing.
The procedure generally takes between 30-45 minutes depending on the size or number of areas being treated. It is common for patients to undertake an initial course of 6 treatments and then move to a maintenance program if required. The Laser Genesis can also be combined with other skin treatments.
What can the patient expect after the procedure?
We classify the Laser Genesis as a lunchtime treatment, being minimally invasive patients can generally return straight to normal activity such as work immediately after. Some redness may be experienced but this will generally subside within an hour.
The results from a single treatment are subtle but you will see a healthier complexion as large pores are reduced in size and minor imperfections diminish. The overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
