Laser Genesis can be used to treat many different issues and is the perfect “lunch-time” procedure to improve Facial Redness, Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Large Pores, Rough Skin Texture, uneven skin tone, acne scarring and scars from trauma, surgery or burns. This heat-based laser stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to boost collagen growth resulting in a more youthful glow.
How does Laser Genesis Work?
Laser Genesis stimulates new skin cell growth and collagen production which smooths fine lines; shrinks pore size; evens out rough skin texture; and fades scarring. This zero down-time laser procedure also closes down the tiny veins and capillaries that cause persistent redness of the skin. Most of our clients begin to see an improvement in their skin after halfway through their treatment series (after about 3 or 4 treatments). For optimal results most people need 5-10 treatments.
Who Is/Is Not a Good Candidate?
All skin types and Fitzpatrick levels can be treated with Laser Genesis.
How many Laser Genesis treatments do I need?
Laser Genesis does require multiple treatments for optimal results, with a healthy minimum being three sessions, four or so weeks apart. Depending on the desired results, upwards of nine treatments may be recommended.
Where on the body can Laser Genesis be used?
Face. Neck. Chest.
What are the common Side-Effects?
The most common side effect of Laser genesis is beautiful skin! There are few if any common side effects of Laser Genesis other than pinkness of the skin (resembling a healthy glow), which typically resolves immediately but can last up to 2 hours.
Is Laser Genesis painful?
Laser Genesis is not painful, but most clients report feeling a warm tingling during the treatment. Many find the treatment rather soothing.
How Long is the Laser Genesis Appointment?

How long do the Results of Laser Genesis last?
Longevity of results are varied from person to person with most people having sustained results for up to 12 months. The duration of results is greatly influenced by your lifestyle, sun exposure, diet, and the use of proper skin care products. You can greatly extend the results by observing the following:

Daily and year around use of a medical grade skin care regimen.
Not smoking or drinking excessive alcohol
Eating a healthy balanced diet
Doing a single booster or maintenance treatment every 6 to 12 months
Preparing for Your Laser Genesis Appointment
Prior to the Laser Genesis treatment, the skin is thoroughly cleaned. Once the skin is clean and dry can then begin the treatment. We recommend that you come to the office with a clean, make-up free face if possible.
Post Treatment Expectations for Laser Genesis
After a Laser Genesis treatment, clients can return to normal activity. There is no down time at all. Some clients may experience a temporary redness, which will dissipate that same day.
