About Laser Genesis

laser-genesisThe Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, naturally and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, diffuse redness and scars. You can expect to see consistent results after each treatment. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel. The Laser Genesis system improves both the appearance and health of skin with controlled, short-pulsed thermal heat energy.

When our skin is young, it is smooth and resilient to injury because of its healthy supply of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Unfortunately, as we age, our body produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid. If our skin were a house, this would the equivalent of slowly removing support beams over time, and opening the windows to let in the dry air: inevitably, gravity and the elements will take their toll!

Laser Genesis’ micro-ablative thermal energy is as gentle on the skin as possible, while also heating the skin to the temperature necessary to jumpstart our tired collagen production. With a healthier supply of collagen, skin is firmer and more youthful-looking, with better skin laxity and tighter pores.

The gentle heat of Laser Genesis also promotes skin renewal. This will heal scars, discolorations, and presenting vascular issues caused by rosacea, sun damage, or simply aging veins, as well as encourage newer, collagen-rich skin to rise to the surface. Skin is tighter and more even-toned after a single treatment with Laser Genesis. Patients see their best skin clearing and anti-aging outcomes after 4 to 6 treatments, depending on the patient’s unique case.

Before & After Photos

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body. Laser Genesis is safe to use on any area of the body but is not approved for use on the delicate skin around the eyes.

What is Diffuse Redness?

Thanks to Laser Genesis’ customizable treatment, our aestheticians can gently target and eliminate patients’ vascular skin issues. One of the most common vascular issues our patients treated with Laser Genesis is diffuse redness.

The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks.

Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, not discrete, well-defined vessels. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. Laser Genesis will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.

Candidates

Good candidates for Laser Genesis are those who want to counter signs of aging, damage, or vascular issues in their skin, but do want to take time out of their busy schedule for a long recovery. Laser Genesis requires no downtime, making it a great choice for patients who want to walk out of Dr. Hayes’ office looking fresh and rejuvenated. Laser Genesis is even safe to receive before a big event!

Laser Genesis is gentle and effective enough to use on all skin types. Patients with melasma, however, may not be good candidates for Laser Genesis. These candidates are invited to discuss their skin rejuvenation options with Dr. Hayes.

Patients who have open wounds should wait until their skin heals before receiving Laser Genesis. Patients with a history of keloid scarring or a pre-existing condition that could interfere with their healthy recovery may not be a good candidate for Laser Genesis. Patients who are taking Accutane or blood thinning medications should discuss their best treatment time frame with their aesthetician. Patients should not self-tan for two to four weeks before their Laser Genesis treatment.

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. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.

How Does Laser Genesis Work?

laser-genesis-treatmentBy gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis improves the appearance of wrinkles through collagen stimulation. The controlled, targeted heating will also jumpstart your skin’s own natural healing processes. This promotes the healing of your scars, acne, and skin discolorations. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

Thanks to the new collagen production, combined with the skin’s increased rate of healing, younger and fuller skin rises to the surface more quickly. Laser Genesis promotes skin tightening, in addition to filling in patient’s fine lines with newer, collagen-supported skin. Patients’ skin gains youthful volume and their complexions become more clear.

Laser Genesis requires no downtime for patients. In some cases, patients’ skin may look slightly red, but this condition disappears within two hours of the treatment. Patients return to their daily activities feeling confident and look rejuvenated.

Patients’ skin may feel warm, dry, or flush for the first few days following their treatment, a similar sensation to a sunburn. Patients will receive instructions for their best gentle, moisturizing skin care regimen during their initial recovery period. Resurfacing products, like retinol, AHA’s, or BHA’s, should be avoided for the first week.
