If you like the idea of having a refined complexion – less diffused redness, smaller pores, reduced wrinkles, even tone, and reduce bacteria related to acne – without discomfort, injections, or recovery time, Laser Genesis™ could be a terrific solution. This gentle, comfortable non-ablative, non-invasive treatment helps to restore soft, smooth, youthful-looking skin. It is available from the experienced team at EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center in Bend, OR.
Today you have many options in light, laser, and energy therapies for skin rejuvenation. Yet Laser Genesis™ is at the forefront of effectiveness and positive treatment experience. The device generates microsecond pulses of focused light energy at a high rate of repetition. It gently heats the upper dermis (second layer of skin) without harm to the surface (epidermis). This deep heating stimulates collagen production that tightens skin and improves texture. It also closes fine capillaries to reduce redness.
Laser Genesis™ is ideal for:
EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center patients love the results of Laser Genesis – a creamy-smooth, healthier complexion . . . usually in just four to six treatments spaced about a month apart. While there can be temporary pinkness or flushed feeling, it generally passes within a few hours. In the care of our trained clinicians, the risk of other side effects is very low, so there is essentially no downtime. You may return to normal activities after Laser Genesis treatment, and wear makeup. Daily sun protection is a must to maintain beautiful results.
Although it is most popular for skin improvement on the face and neck, this gentle laser therapy can be applied virtually anywhere, such as acne scarring on the body. Laser Genesis™ is also ideal in conjunction with IPL treatments such as Limelight™ often referred to as a 2-D facial for controlling rosacea symptoms. It is safe for all skin types and colors.
Your Laser Genesis session begins with cleansing and evaluation. After a microscopic examination to determine the condition of the skin, the technician recommends a treatment plan. She explains the procedure and answers your questions.
While the laser device is robust, the actual handpiece is small and quiet. Your eyes are protected from the light, and the technician moves the applicator back and forth over the treatment area, slightly above the surface. There is no direct contact with the skin. Full face treatment usually goes from cheek to chin, other side of the face, and nose, ending with the forehead. You feel a sensation of therapeutic warmth, but it is quite tolerable – topical anesthetic and cooling gel is not necessary. You may catch a whiff of heat but be assured it is not your skin burning; just peach fuzz. You may choose to add an exfoliating dermaplane treatment prior to Laser Genesis for better penetration and to remove fine facial hair.
Most patients see improvement immediately after the first session. Skin feels tighter, pores look smaller, and acne scars are lighter. Over the course of your treatment plan, progress continues as collagen builds and skin tone evens out.
This treatment can give you great results at any age. However, in your 20s is a good age to start. While every complexion can benefit from Laser Genesis, it is an excellent “prejuvenation” technique to prevent signs of aging, with periodic re-treatment each year.
