LASER GENESIS AND PICO GENESIS
Laser Genesis™ is a preventative and corrective treatment that kick-starts collagen production to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It’s great for treating:
- ACNE SCARS
- UNEVEN SKIN TONE
- ENLARGED PORES
It is one of the safest and most effective ways to treat scarring, diffuse redness, uneven texture, and large pores. It can be performed on the face, chest, and neck, and usually takes only 30 minutes.
The PICO Genesis laser procedure uses the Enlighten Laser and takes an entirely new approach to the treatment of pigmentation issues and skin revitalization. This method combines the benefits of two highly effective wavelengths in ultra-short pulses to cause an intense, non-thermal, photo mechanical disruption and remodeling of the upper dermis.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
When the laser is applied, it penetrates deep into the skin, making corrections at the cellular level. The temporary thermal treatment increases collagen production and helps to break down capillaries, releasing trapped blood and redness beneath the skin’s surface. It also shrinks enlarged pores, limiting the amount of bacteria and dirt able to become lodged inside them.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Many patients have described their experience with Laser Genesis as pleasant and relaxing. The laser produces a warm, tingling sensation as it moves across the skin. Side effects are very mild with slight redness, skin sensitivity, and some peeling.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are subtle at first. Most patients see results 3-9 weeks after their first treatment. This is because the laser repairs cells that are deep within the skin, and it takes time for these skin layers to come up to the surface. Once this happens, you should see improvements in your skin’s texture, redness, scarring, and fine lines.
Most patients require 4-6 treatments to see maximum results. We often recommend that you receive a treatment once every 2 weeks for a 6 treatment series. Ultimately, the number of treatments will depend on the level of scarring, redness, and unevenness present in your skin. Our physicians will be able to give you a better idea of when you should start to see the final results after they have examined your condition.
WHAT TO DO AFTER TREATMENT?
The benefits of Laser Genesis can be enhanced by drinking plenty of water and applying sunscreen when exposing your skin to harsh sunlight. We will also perform a gentle cleanse and tone following the treatment. Laser Genesis also pairs well with a peel or facial treatment. In a short time, your skin should feel tighter and be free of lines, scars, unevenness, and redness.
