What skin concerns can Laser Genesis treat?
Laser Genesis can treat a variety of skin concerns. Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines of the skin. Laser Genesis can even your skin tone, fade superficial acne scars, and can treat ‘diffuse redness’ of the skin and patients with rosacea, as well as reduce the appearance of large pores.
What is diffuse redness?
Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, not discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead, and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea, and it can be hereditary. Laser Genesis will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.
What areas can be treated?
Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, Laser Genesis may be a recommended therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
How does Laser Genesis work?
By gently heating the upper dermis deep in the skin, Laser Genesis improves the appearance of wrinkles through collagen stimulation. In addition, heat is generated in dilated capillaries of the skin to reduce redness. To learn more about Laser Genesis visit ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.
What can I expect before the treatment?
Before the actual Laser Genesis treatment, you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers, and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. We ask that you avoid tanning the skin for several weeks prior to your Laser Genesis treatment.
What does the procedure feel like?
During the Laser Genesis treatment, you will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure. A specialized handpiece is moved slowly back and forth over the targeted area, gently warming the deeper layers of the skin. Some patients describe the sensation and mild stinging or pinching. No anesthesia is required for this treatment. Most treatments take less than 30 minutes to complete. Protective eyewear will be worn during the procedure, for patient safety.
As the new cells reach the surface of the skin, you will begin to see results from your Laser Genesis treatment in the first few weeks. However, full results are seen around 3-6 months as collagen production continues to increase in the skin.
What kind of improvements can you expect with Laser Genesis skin therapy?
Over the course of four to six treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Most treatments are spaced one month apart. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult your laser provider at Carolina Facial Plastics located in Charlotte, NC.
