At Clinica Lase, we recommend laser genesis to treat redness and rejuvenate your facial skin, neck, décolletage and other areas of the body. It’s a popular treatment for both men and women without any downtime or after effects. Treatment sessions do not take long and many patients benefit from this relaxing procedure.
Laser genesis works by heating the upper dermis of the skin to stimulate collagen production and combat signs of ageing. In addition to treating fine lines and wrinkles, laser genesis is known to improve skin redness, minimise the appearance of red scars, new stretch marks, treat acne and rosacea. The heat that is created by the laser can help to clear dilated capillaries that cause redness on the skin, reduce acne-causing bacteria and control oil production.
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.
Cutera’s patented vascular laser procedure, uses 1064nm Nd:YAG wavelength to heat the skin to the desired temperature in order to coagulate the microvasculature network in the dermis. This decreases redness, dilated capillaries and inflammation whilst stimulating collagen to treat fine lines and wrinkles. They call this the “lunchtime” laser treatment as there is no downtime involved and is a gold standard for treating conditions like rosacea, red scars and inflammatory acne.
Laser genesis involves using Cutera’s patented vascular laser procedure at 1064nm Nd:YAG wavelength to heat the skin. When the skin reaches the desired temperature, it will coagulate or collapse the microvasculature network in the dermis. This decreases redness, dilated capillaries and inflammation whilst stimulating collagen to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser genesis can treat fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation, diffused redness, acne and rosacea.
With all first time clients we provide a thorough consultation before doing any treatments to ensure you are a suitable candidate and to make sure we are addressing your individual concerns.
We will perform a consultation where we will assess your skin and tailor the treatment to your specific concerns. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated before performing the Laser genesis. We will then combine the treatment with a combination of mask, LED treatments or chemical peels, this will depend on what your Clinician has selected for your treatment.
If you book for a Laser Genesis facial the treatment takes 1 hour and 15 mins for the whole treatment however the Laser genesis component takes about 20 minutes. We use the rest of the time to tailor the treatment to your skin.
- Avoid sun exposure for 48 hours post treatment and ensure broad spectrum UVA/ UVB sunscreen is worn
- Avoid heat - hot tubs, saunas etc for 24-48 hours
- Avoid skin irritants for 3 days post treatment (active skin care - products containing tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic/ salicylic acids, astringents etc)
- Make-up can be worn if required however if would be ideal to leave skin clean post treatment
Immediate plumping of the skin can be seen right after treatment. However, 2-4 weeks is generally needed to see further improvements. For best results, multiple treatments are required.
Yes, we see excellent results with laser genesis for skin rejuvenation and diffused redness. It has minimal risks and downtime so it is a great option for someone wanting to see a result without pain or downtime.
This will depend on the condition of your skin and the result we are trying to achieve. For a series of treatments we would normally recommend 4-6 treatments and then go onto maintenance. A lot of our clients will do a series of more intense treatment with downtime and then do regular genesis sessions as maintenance.
This can vary from person to person however you can still notice results 6-12 months post treatment.
They are very different treatments and treat different concerns. Laser genesis is excellent for a pain-free, no-downtime treatment for someone wanting to target diffused redness and overall skin health. Microneedling is more uncomfortable and has some downtime but would be considered more effective for treating deeper acne scars or any textural issues in the skin.
