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
What does the procedure feel like?
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and
therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of
your skins surface during the procedure as the
laser handpiece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch
above your skin. You can immediately return to normal
utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities
How does Laser Genesis work?
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skins
surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth.
Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries
to reduce redness.
What can I expect before the treatment?
You will not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior
to treatment. Before the actual Laser Genesis treatment,
you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers
and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area
to be treated. Your medical professional will review and assist
with all pre-treatment requirements.
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 patients condition and
needs vary. For more information about your expected
results or the number of treatments necessary, consult
your medical professional.
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 medical professional
for complete information about the benefits and risks
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 skins 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.
