Skin Treatment

Cutera Laser Genesis

The appearance of the skin is affected by the environment, as well as by the aging process. In particular, direct sun exposure and genetics can actually increase the rate that the skin ages. This means that men and women can develop fine lines and wrinkles, plus have pigmentation imperfections and sun spots.

A lot of patients that seek laser genesis treatment want to enjoy youthful looking skin. At Clinica Lase, we recommend laser genesis for transforming the appearance of your facial skin, neck and décolletage. Laser genesis is a popular treatment that men and women enjoy to rejuvenate their skin without any downtime or after effects. It is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment that can be used to treat fine line & wrinkles, acne and scarring. Treatment sessions do not last long and a lot of patients begin to enjoy the procedure.

In particular, laser genesis is a treatment that is recommended for diffusing redness and treating rosacea. The heat that is created by the laser can help to clear dilated capillaries that have been causing redness on the skin.

Laser genesis involves heating the upper dermis of the skin to combat the signs of aging. This procedure can increase collagen production and this may have the effect of improving the texture of the skin. At Clinica Lase, patients may need more than one treatment session to achieve their skin goals. Every patient will be different and you will be able to find out more at your personal consultation.

You will be asked to fill out a consultation form and the process will be explained to you. In addition, the best products that you can use for your skin before laser genesis will be highlighted. If you have any questions about laser genesis, your personal consultation is the perfect time to ask a professional.

What to Expect during Laser Genesis

The laser that is used during laser genesis treatment is safe and the thermal injuries that it produces are used to rejuvenate the skin, without harming the surrounding areas. This treatment is suitable for all skin types too. You can expect your laser genesis treatment sessions to last around 30 minutes. A handheld laser device will be used, which will glide over the skin. Patients will wear eye goggles to protect the eyes during the procedure. Again, the number of treatment sessions that you need will depend on your skin goals.

A lot of patients are concerned that laser genesis will be uncomfortable. However, there is minimal discomfort associated with this procedure. A lot of patients describe the process as creating a warm sensation on the skin. This can feel like raindrops falling onto your skin.

Post-Treatment

Patients can expect some mild redness of the skin after laser genesis. This is a normal reaction to the treatment and it will subside within 24 hours of having laser genesis. There should be no pain and minimal discomfort after the procedure.

In general, there is minimal downtime associated with laser genesis. In fact, most patients choose to return to their work and normal routine straight away. However, it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise for around 48 hours after having laser genesis. This will include postponing any swimming, Bikram Yoga or other gym activities. In addition, it is best to avoid direct sun exposure for around 14 days. This will allow the skin to heal and stay healthy. A sun block should be used if you are going to be outdoors. A lot of patients enjoy this treatment prior to big events to enjoy the benefits, with no need to take any time off post-treatment.
