The skin goes through a lot of changes that are caused by age, environmental factors and other aspects such as stress and poor diet. It’s so important to care for your skin before the common signs of ageing and sun damage start to show. However, there are ways to treat skin that is already showing the effects of a modern lifestyle, all without the need for incisions or the after-effects of surgery.
The Laser Genesis system was designed to safely, discreetly and effectively treat scars, fine lines, large pores, uneven skin texture and to diffuse redness. At Allure Clinic in Toowoomba, we aim to offer patients subtle, yet consistent results after every treatment.
Laser Genesis can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions and areas of the body, including the face, neck and décolletage. Every treatment is performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the need for topical anaesthetics or gels.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Laser Genesis Works
Before you can proceed with Laser Genesis treatments, your skin and aesthetic goals will need to be discussed and your medical history will need to be reviewed to ensure that this is the best treatment for you.
Once the targeted area has been cleaned and prepped, the Laser Genesis device will emit laser energy which will gradually heat up the upper layers of your skin. This process increases collagen production, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The heat will also dilate any capillaries, which will reduce redness and treat conditions such as rosacea.
In terms of how the treatment feels, when compared to other types of laser treatments, Laser Genesis only causes mild discomfort. Instead of experiencing a stinging or snapping sensation, patients will feel a warming sensation – this can feel slightly intense for some patients but it won’t be painful. Overall, the average treatment at the Allure clinic will take about 30 minutes.
It should be noted that most patients will require around four to six treatments spaced about a month apart to achieve their desired results. Laser Genesis can also be combined with other treatments such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. Your clinician will assist you with a tailored treatment plan during your consultation to ensure you achieve your desired outcome.
Laser Genesis is generally ideal for patients in their late 20s and 30s who want to increase collagen production in order to improve the appearance of wrinkles or reduce the appearance of acne, scars and enlarged pores. The system can safely be used to treat all skin types and is most suited to light to medium skin tones.
What to Expect after a Laser Genesis Treatment
Laser Genesis treatments offer subtle yet consistent results that can last for several months. However, besides a healthy glow, patients won’t see results directly after their session – you will start to see a noticeable improvement three to nine weeks after your first session because the repairs are taking place deep down. Regular treatments will be required to maintain results going forward.
Following your treatments, it will be necessary to follow a good at-home skincare regime if you want to see significant results. Your Allure Clinic clinician can assist you with product recommendations should you need them.
Laser Genesis produces minimal unwanted side effects and no downtime will be required. If anything, most patients only experience some mild redness and swelling that subsides within a few hours. While you are free to return to your usual activities after your session, it’s highly recommended that you wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen in order to protect your skin.
