Remarkable Care, Exceptional Results
“Love coming here! The staff is always so friendly and helpful. Heather is amazing, and really listens to what you want out of your treatment, and then provides suggestions based off that. She has never told me to or tried to convince me to get treatment that may be too much or that may not give me the desired results, which I think is really important.”

Does your skin need a refresh? Carolina Facial Plastics, located in Charlotte, NC, is proud to offer Laser Genesis, a non-invasive laser treatment to smooth the skin texture, treat fine lines and wrinkles, and promote an even skin tone.
Laser Genesis uses non-invasive laser technology to stimulate collagen production and promote vibrant and healthy skin in men and women.
Laser Genesis treatments create a more youthful skin appearance by treating conditions typically associated with aging and sun damage.

Our experienced team, including Heather Bryant, MPAS, PA-C, Amanda Piligian, PA-C, Courtney Whitley, FNP-C, and Terri Edson, medical aesthetician, all perform our nonsurgical treatments like the Laser Genesis.
With a fully accredited surgery center, and a private recovery retreat all located in the heart of SouthPark, Carolina Facial Plastics is known for unparalleled and natural-looking results exclusively for the face.
Laser Genesis offers numerous benefits to the skin, including:
- Continuously stimulates new collagen production of the skin
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Safely and gently treats diffuse facial redness, making it an effective laser rosacea treatment
- Fades acne scarring
- Provides a comfortable procedure with no downtime
Laser Genesis can treat a variety of skin concerns. Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
This device can also fade superficial acne scars and reduce the appearance of large pores.
Laser Genesis for rosacea treats facial redness and skin redness, producing healthier, younger-looking skin with an even tone and texture.
Melasma is a skin condition characterized by brown patches or spots on the skin. It occurs when the skin produces an excessive amount of melanin, leading to the discoloration on the skin’s surface.
Melasma can be triggered by factors such as pregnancy or sun exposure. In some cases, melasma goes away on its own, but others may require treatment to reduce the appearance of the brown patches.
While lasers can be an effective treatment for melasma, we do not recommend the Laser Genesis for this purpose. Instead, we often prefer chemical peels and targeted medical grade skin care treatment for this purpose.
By gently heating the upper dermis deep in the skin, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen production to reduce some signs of aging and sun damage. Heat is also generated into dilated capillaries underneath the skin to reduce redness.

During the Laser Genesis treatment at our medical clinic, 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 skin’s deeper layers. 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.
Mild redness or skin irritation can occur after a Laser Genesis procedure, but this will fade over the first hour after the treatment. No downtime is required.
Our medical clinic patients typically return to work or school immediately following treatment. There are also no restrictions on exercise or strenuous activities, so patients can also resume these activities right away.

Frequently asked questions
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.
Diffuse redness is general skin redness rather than discrete, well-defined vessels. Facial redness, for instance, is caused by dilated capillaries. Laser Genesis for rosacea works by heating the skin and targeting the blood’s hemoglobin to collapse the small blood vessels that cause diffuse redness. Laser rosacea treatment using Laser Genesis delivers heat into these blood vessels without affecting surrounding tissues. Once these blood vessels absorb the laser’s heat, they constrict, collapse, and become reabsorbed into the skin, resulting in a reduction of redness.
There are many types of rosacea, with each having its own specific symptoms. But all of them include facial redness or skin redness, which can be successfully treated with Laser Genesis.
One of the main causes of the skin redness associated with rosacea is damaged blood vessels. Laser Genesis for rosacea heats the skin and constricts blood vessels and dilated capillaries to lessen the red appearance in the skin. The laser also stimulates the body’s natural healing process, triggering the production of new skin cells, collagen, and elastin. The result of laser rosacea treatment is healthier, younger-looking skin.
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.
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.
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.
