The Laser Genesis procedure offered at Clinica Lase utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, naturally and effectively treat fine lines, wrinkles, diffuse redness, acne and acne scars.
Laser Genesis works by gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, stimulating collagen and improving the appearance of wrinkles. This treatment can also be used to target unwanted brown spots and facial redness.
Each patient’s condition and needs vary, but generally a course of four to six treatments will be recommended for best results.
During the consultation your clinician will recommend and discuss which products you may need to use prior to your procedure. This is to ensure that the skin is well prepped to reduce risks of adverse reactions and to ensure optimal results from your treatment. Products will generally need to be used in the 2 weeks leading up to the procedure. This time frame may vary from patient to patient.
Upon arrival you will be asked to fill out a consultation form which will include questions about your skin type, medical conditions, previous treatments, etc. You will then have a private discussion with an experienced clinician who will assess your individual requirements, suggest a tailored plan and take you through the details of the treatment including pre-care and aftercare. This will also give you the opportunity to have any questions or queries regarding your treatment answered. Most patients are able to tolerate the treatment without much discomfort. The patient will experience a warming of the skin during treatment which many clients find relaxing.
At Clinica Lase we only use medical grade, TGA approved laser technology.
We pride ourselves on both our knowledge and experience but also on our thorough consultations that ensure we have all the necessary information to minimise the risk of complications. At Clinica Lase, you can be sure that your safety is our first priority.
