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 even your skin tone, fade superficial acne scars, treat diffuse redness in patients with rosacea, and reduce the appearance of large pores.
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, 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. 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 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.
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.
