Q: What is Laser Genesis Skin Therapy?
A: Laser Genesis completely rejuvenates your skin. It is scientifically proven to not only minimize fine lines, but also reduce large pores, uneven skin texture and overall redness. During the treatment, a cosmetic laser gently heats the skin below the surface. This heat stimulates the body's own natural healing response. As a result, your underlying collagen is refreshed; pores become smaller; lines are decreased, and the color of your skin will even out.
Q: Can anyone benefit from Laser Genesis?
A: Yes! Laser Genesis is good for all skin types--from light to dark. It is a great option for anyone interested in either attaining or maintaining a smooth, youthful appearance.
Q: How many sessions does it take?
A: Typically, Laser Genesis works best in a series of three to six sessions, depending on your skin type. Most people will notice a marked improvement in the skin’s overall appearance and texture after just three sessions (approximately two to three weeks apart). Seasonal maintenance treatments are often required to maintain treatment results.
Q: Is Laser Genesis painful?
A: Laser Genesis is one of the most comfortable treatments on the market today. You will feel a warm sensation as if you are laying out in the sun; there is minimal discomfort.
Q: How do I prepare for treatment?
A: No special preparation is necessary. Nevertheless, we suggest that you refrain from using any topical prescription medications (Hydroquinone, Retin-A, Glycolic and Salicylic) for a minimum of three to dive days before your treatment. Do not use antibiotics or photosensitizing medication in the two weeks leading up to your treatment.
Q: How long does the treatment take?
A: Laser Genesis takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes when treating the full face. However, the appointment will be 45 minutes long. This will allow you to get comfortable in the treatment room. We start the treatment with a relaxing pre-cleanse and end with a cooling mask. The face is treated in three to four minute intervals per section. Extra time will be needed for additional surface area.
Q: What can I expect after the treatment?
A: There is minimal to no downtime after Laser Genesis. Following the treatment, you skin will look slightly flushed with a “dewy” glow. Makeup can be applied immediately.
