Laser Genesis is a non-ablative form of laser skin resurfacing. Unlike ablative lasers that resurface the outermost layer of skin cells, non-ablative lasers penetrate past the outer layer of skin. The advantage of non-ablative techniques is that you are spared from a long recovery time and major side effects. In comparison, ablative methods have the advantage of improving the appearance of deep wrinkles and scars, but often these lasers require lengthy downtime and can cause excessive skin irritation.
This Laser Treatment is offered exclusively at our New Hope Road, Gastonia Office.
Laser Treatment for a Smoother, Fresher Face
Laser Genesis heats the layers of skin beneath the surface to improve facial appearance. You can use Laser Genesis in combination with other skin care treatments. The heat causes your body to begin healing, in part by producing new collagen. The result is firmer, smoother skin. Laser Genesis is an effective way to improve:
- Fine lines
- Uneven texture
- Large pores
The Laser Genesis procedure has the advantage of having very few and mild side effects. The most common side effect of Laser Genesis is redness that disappears just hours after the treatment. Laser Genesis also minimizes discomfort and is painless. Most people who have received the treatment note only a distinct warming sensation in the skin as the laser is passed back and forth across the face.
Benefits of Laser Genesis
The advantage of using a non-ablative resurfacing technique is that non-ablative technology requires less recovery time, and causes less irritation and swelling after the treatment. You can use makeup and resume normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Laser Genesis is a gentle, non-ablative treatment that takes about 30 minutes to an hour. You will probably require four to six treatments before you see optimal results. These treatments are usually separated by two to four weeks each. Thus, you will see the best results from Laser Genesis three to six months after your first treatment.
Results from Laser Genesis will last many months and possibly years, depending on your skincare habits and the natural aging process. To protect and extend your results, wear sunscreen outside and use moisturizing creams.
