Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment commonly used for facial rejuvenation. It is designed to improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin, targeting various skin concerns without causing significant downtime. Here's a general description of a Laser Genesis facial:
- Consultation: Before the treatment, you'll typically have a consultation with a skincare professional or dermatologist to discuss your skin concerns and determine if Laser Genesis is suitable for your skin type and condition. This can be done in clinic or over the phone.
- Preparation: Your skin will be cleansed to remove any makeup, oils, or debris. Protective eyewear may be provided to shield your eyes from the laser.
- Laser Application: During the treatment, a handheld device emitting non-ablative laser energy is gently moved over the targeted areas of your face. The laser penetrates the skin's layers, stimulating collagen production and promoting a natural healing response.
- Comfort Level: Laser Genesis is generally considered comfortable, with patients often describing it as a warming sensation. It's not typically painful, and there is usually no need for anesthesia! We describe it as feeling like warm raindrops!
- Duration: A session typically lasts around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treated area and the specific settings used. At Appearance Clinic we
include LED Light Therapy in all facials and other skin treatments such as masks & Enzymatic exfoliants if needed which makes the facial last for about 1 hour 15 minutes!
- No Downtime: One of the key advantages of Laser Genesis is that there is minimal to no downtime. You can usually resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure.
- Collagen Stimulation: Laser Genesis promotes collagen production, which helps improve skin elasticity and firmness.
- Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The treatment can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Even Skin Tone: It targets areas of redness and uneven skin tone, providing a more uniform complexion.
- Texture Improvement: Laser Genesis can enhance the overall texture of the skin, making it smoother.
- Reduced Pore Size: It may contribute to a reduction in the size of enlarged pores.
Number of Sessions: The number of sessions needed varies depending on individual skin conditions and treatment goals. A series of sessions spaced several weeks apart is often recommended for optimal results.
