The Genesis Laser Facial has many advantages, including eye wrinkle reduction, the smoothing out of any fine lines with little or no downtime, and being an effective rosacea treatment. It is safe for most skin types and the side effects are the same as getting a slight sunburn after a day at the beach, with results without some of the bruising and skin irritation that can accompany laser skin treatments.
The Genesis laser penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen, giving skin a youthful, rejuvenated appearance. The laser is non-ablative, meaning that it will not injure your skin. It is highly recommended that you space out your treatments over weeks or months for them to be most effective.
The treatment is typically carried out in a clean and comfortable environment and with a thorough preparation process. As a result, you can resume your normal daily activities right after visiting a clinic.
How Does the Genesis Laser Facial Work?
The laser facial works by targeting the dermis, the deeper layer of skin were collagen is made. The process gently heats the dermis, encouraging the production of collagen, which in turn results in an even skin tone, tighter pores, and smooth skin. It also helps to treat rosacea by reducing the appearance of ruddiness.
What Is It Used For?
The Genesis Laser Facial can be used to improve the skin’s appearance, including fine line and eye wrinkle reduction and evening skin tones. It isn’t just for cosmetic treatments; it is also a highly effective Rosacea treatment that can greatly reduce the redness the skin condition causes.
Will There Be Any Discomfort?
Patients have described the laser facial as being similar to spending the day outside in the sun, with the warm feeling possibly lasting for up to half an hour following the treatment. Many patients have reported that their skin feels firmer afterwards.
How Quickly Can I Resume My Regular Activities?
Regardless of the purpose of your laser facial, you can resume your regular activities immediately following the treatment; many patients even undergo the procedure on their lunch break. But make sure to consume plenty of water and apply sunscreen before the treatment begins!
How Many Treatments Will I Require?
The number of treatments needed will depend on what you are having treated and the types of results you are looking for, with the average being six treatments spaced three to four weeks apart. And even those who see results after just one treatment are recommended to receive several for the best results.
How Long Will the Results Last?
One of the benefits of the Genesis treatment is that the results accumulate over time, with the collagen production that the procedure triggers peaking 12 weeks after your last treatment. Results vary by patient, but for many, the results last for up to a year. Extra skin care, such as applying sunscreen, can maintain the results further, though if you’re undergoing rosacea treatment, it is recommended that you see a doctor for further treatment.
