Laser Genesis™ is a treatment for scars, large pores, excessively red skin, and uneven skin texture. It works by using modern laser technology and creates results without pain. The laser prompts the skin to create more collagen, which then in turn creates an improved look of the skin. Your skin will even appear younger.
The process brings back a youthful glow. It can smooth uneven skin and improve the texture. (Changes in texture can come from aging, sun damage, or scarring). It can also minimize the size of pores and improve other minor imperfections. The skin looks more vibrant and has fewer fine lines. Scars are reduced and skin tone looks more even.
Both men and women can benefit from Laser Genesis. Typically, Laser Genesis is done over several treatments. Four to six sessions are normal. They are usually done about three or four weeks apart. The results add up after each session. The laser works by heating the lower levels of the skin, the dermis. The dermis has both collagen and elastin proteins that affect the strength and tone of the skin. The heat from the laser forces more collagen to be created, which then repairs the look of the skin and makes it more supple from the inside. This process can be done all over the face and neck. It may also be used in some cases to treat scars in other areas.
The Cutera CoolGlide Difference
The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.
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.
What is diffuse redness?
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. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. 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.
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 as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
How does Laser Genesis work?
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
How many treatments will I need?
The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult your technician.
What are the possible side effects?
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Consult your technician for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.
What kind of textural improvements can you expect with Laser Genesis skin therapy?
Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a more creamy, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
