The treatments can be relatively fast, with little to no downtime, and can fit into any busy schedule. Get a consultation today to see if you’re an ideal candidate.

How does Laser Genesis work?

Laser Genesis delivers micro-pulses of energy to the skin, which activates collagen remodeling to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, facial redness, skin texture and even unwanted brown spots. The effects of the treatment can be seen almost immediately with each individual session and the overall improvement of the total set of treatments will demonstrate the full improvement. 

What does Laser Genesis feel like?

Unlike many laser treatments, Laser Genesis is a pleasant experience. You will feel a gentle warming of your skin’s surface, which is a sign of the energy being delivered to the treatment area. This is often described as a relaxing experience that can feel therapeutic.

What areas can be treated with Laser Genesis?

Virtually any area of the body that shows signs of aging is ideal for Laser Genesis treatments. Typical treatment areas include the face and neck.

How many treatments do I need? 

While every patient is different, a series of three to six Laser Genesis treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results. In order to maintain the best results and prevent the signs of aging in the future, discuss yearly maintenance treatment during your consultation. 

Is Laser Genesis safe for my skin type?

Laser Genesis can be used in all skin types and with little to no downtime, it is the ideal treatment for almost all patients looking to improve their skin. Of course, every procedure has risks and you should discuss your medical history at your consultation to ensure your treatment will be safe and effective. 

What are the possible side effects of Laser Genesis?

Increased redness in the treatment area can be seen, which is often transient and will only last several hours after the session. After an application of sunscreen, you can return back to your normal activities immediately. Of note, it would be best to avoid direct sunlight for 1 week after the procedure and wear sunscreen daily. Of course, with any procedure, there are always other potential side effects and you should discuss this with your dermatologist at your consultation.
