A Laser Facial for skin rejuvenation
If you want that youthful glow back then this is the treatment for you! The Laser Genesis (also known as a Laser Facial) is a comfortable, effective treatment that improves the look and feel of the skin with no downtime. The best thing about Laser Genesis is that this is not a cosmetic band-aid. Through the formation of new collagen, your skin is actually becoming healthier and wrinkles are being erased. This procedure is a favorite among the Hollywood A-list in preparation for a big event and is a great procedure for anyone who wants to have overall healthier, younger looking skin.
This laser uses gentle heat to stimulate collagen growth and to painlessly suppress excessive redness and flushing. You will see a wonderful “glow” in the first few days after the treatment, and with a series of treatments, this laser will reduce redness, fine lines, pore size, uneven texture, and acne scarring for over-all younger and healthier skin. For best results, you should have 3-5 treatments separated by 2-4 weeks each.

Frequently Asked Questions
Laser Genesis (a Laser Facial) is a perfect solution when your skin feels or looks dull or is beginning to show signs of aging. It can also help with enlarged pores, fine lines, active acne or acne scarring and can effectively treat diffuse redness.
Technically – this is a 1064 ND:Yag laser that heats the water and hemoglobin in your skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen and suppression of excessive redness.
By gently heating the upper dermis (middle layer of the skin), Laser Genesis stimulates collagen growth. In addition, small facial capillaries are targeted by the laser, resulting in diminished redness, and an improvement in Rosacea. Over the course of your treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore your skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
Laser Genesis is mainly used for treating skin on the face and neck, but it has also been proven to be effective on other areas of the body including back, décolletage, and hands.
The number of treatments you will need depends in part on what you are treating. In general, it takes approximately 4-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart to obtain optimal results. Generally speaking, you will see skin improvement with 3 treatments, but we recommend 6 for acne scarring or rosacea suppression.
Since aging does not ever stop, we recommend a maintenance program to ensure lasting results. Generally speaking – this will be 3-4 treatments a year.
You will see an immediate “glow”, but the improvements in fine lines, redness, and scarring take more time – since growing collagen is a slow and gradual process. You will see the full results of each treatment about a month after the treatment was performed, with the full results seen about a month after you finish your full course.
The treatment usually takes about 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure – comparable to being at the pool on a hot summer day.
Other than slight redness 30 to 60 minutes immediately post-treatment, there is no downtime with Laser Genesis. We do recommend that you use sunscreen if you are going to be outdoors after your treatment.
In short – yes. This laser is safe for all skin types, and will be beneficial to anyone who is experiencing fine lines, redness, acne scarring, or even just the loss of that youthful “glow”.
