Lights, camera, action, LASER. Wait…laser? Laser treatments are at the forefront of skin rejuvenation this millennium, but with so many options available, how do you find the best fit for you?
Laser Genesis is a comfortable, non-ablative, non-invasive form of skin therapy designed to help restore your skin’s youthful glow by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars.
Offered by Allure Cosmetic Clinic in Toowoomba, we take a look at why Laser Genesis is leading the pack in skin regeneration and why you should make it your next cosmetic procedure.
What is Laser Genesis?
The Laser Genesis procedure utilises non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat scars, fine lines, large pores, uneven skin texture and diffuse redness. It offers a creamier, healthier complexion by reducing pore size and diminishing skin imperfections.
How does it work?
By gently heating your skin’s upper dermis well below the surface of your skin, Laser Genesis has been scientifically proven to stimulate collagen regrowth with no downtime and minimal discomfort. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
By heating up the deeper layers of the skin, as well as focusing on enlarged and inflamed blood vessels to reduce redness, Laser Genesis improves skin health subtly and consistently.
The benefits of Laser Genesis are far reaching. They include:
- Subtle yet consistent results after each treatment
- No unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation
- Treatments are performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anaesthetics or gel
- Dramatic improvement in skin texture
- Reduces pore size
- Reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Effective in reducing redness and improving conditions including rosacea.
Advantages over traditional laser treatments
While traditional laser treatments are effective for those large, unattractive vessels that so often appear around the nose, cheeks and chin, they just can’t reach many of those finer, shallower vessels.
This is where Laser Genesis has the advantage over traditional treatments. Working in the same way as other laser treatments to coagulate and collapse veins, Laser Genesis additionally uses high-power microsecond pulses at high repetition rates to safely heat the dermis, stimulating collagen and reducing redness.
Laser Genesis can be used on all areas of the body, skin of any type or colour and is most commonly used on the face and neck. Patients report excellent results over the entirety of these areas. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this treatment to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
What does it feel like?
Laser Genesis treatment consists of a gentle non-contact laser stimulation of the skin. Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic, and no numbing creams are required. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about half an inch above your skin.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, most patients require between four to six treatments in order to achieve the results you are looking for. Every patient’s condition and needs vary, so it is best to discuss your individual circumstances in a confidential consultation prior to beginning your treatment.
Post treatment side effects
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours following treatment. It is common to feel slightly ‘flushed’, however this sensation is usually subtle and disappears quickly.
Post treatment sun protection is important to help maximise results. Most patients immediately return to normal activities.
