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.
After laser genesis, patients can enjoy more youthful looking skin, with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles diminished. Patients can also notice an improvement in the texture of the skin, with redness decreased and scarring minimised. The final results of this treatment will be gradual and it only takes a few treatment sessions. But, every patient is different and all of this will be explained in a personal consultation.
