What makes Laser Genesis so effective is that it can treat a number of different problems while doing no damage at all to your skin. It’s a very subtle treatment that produces real results. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits you can expect from a Genesis treatment.
5 Top Benefits of Laser Genesis
1. A Natural Approach to Healing
Before examining all of the ways that Genesis laser treatments can help you, you may want to know just how it works. That’s one of the best things about it! Unlike other treatments that require injections or “micro-injuries” to stimulate your skin or fill it in, Genesis uses a soft laser that gently warms your skin. When your skin reaches the target temperature, it naturally calls for more collagen to be produced.
Collagen is one of the most important molecules in your skin. It provides elasticity and fullness. It’s what makes your skin supple and firm while also giving it the ability to flex and bend without losing its shape. As you age, collagen deteriorates and your cells struggle to produce more than they lose. With a heat laser treatment, we can kick start collagen production and solve a wide variety of problems. Let’s look at what this laser can do.
2. Versatile Treatment for a Number of Problems
Reduce Scarring and Dark Spots
While your skin is resilient and able to heal itself quite well compared to other parts of your body, it can’t overcome everything on its own. Scars, in particular, are most noticeable on your skin and can be difficult to remove. Whether your scars are from minor injuries earlier in life or the result of aggressive acne, you can minimize their appearance with a laser treatment.
The stimulation from the heat will help blood flow into the area and encourage healthier cells to form. This can also lighten dark spots on your skin and give you a more uniform complexion overall. Even damaged blood vessels near the skin’s surface can be treated and their appearance reduced.
One of the most common reasons patients ask us about Genesis is to reduce redness in their skin. Rosacea is one of the leading causes of undesired redness, and Genesis can treat it quite well. Similarly, Port-Wine Stains (PWS) can also be treated with heat laser technology with great results. Redness is generally caused by an excess of blood vessels near the skin’s surface.
As we mentioned, heat laser treatments will encourage healing in the targeted area. This can shrink these unnecessary blood vessels and bring a more natural skin tone to the surface. In addition, as more collagen comes to your skin cells, they’ll become less translucent, meaning they won’t reveal the vessels underneath as easily as before.
Smooth Out Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Another reason to consider Genesis is that it can help you naturally fill in lines and wrinkles. While other treatments can be more effective at filling in deep lines or advanced wrinkles, Genesis is an excellent option if you’ve got light lines that you’re looking to stop in their tracks before they worsen. The warmth from the laser addresses the root cause of wrinkles and lines: A lack of collagen.
Without collagen, your skin lacks structural support. Wrinkles form when the weight from the skin above the wrinkle pushes down and in on the skin below. This tends to happen along the lines where your muscles flex and repeatedly bend the skin out of shape. As you age, your collagen fades away, leaving the worn out part of your skin to collapse inward under the weight from above. When you bring back collagen, you restore your skin’s strength.
Combat Acne Directly
Genesis comes highly recommended for chronic acne patients. Acne is caused by a particular type of bacteria that can nestle into your pores and lead to those unsightly bumps that we’ve loathed since high school. Once bacteria reach lower layers of your skin, even the most thorough scrubbing routine may not be enough to remove it. However, Genesis can penetrate below the outer layers of your skin to achieve lasting results.
The heat generated by the laser can kill bacteria underneath the skin’s surface. Not only will this help treat a current outbreak of acne, but it will also prevent it from returning. Should you have another outbreak, you’ll likely find it to be less severe. Continued treatment with Genesis will help keep acne at bay and prevent further damage to your skin.
3. The Most Convenient Skin Treatment
In addition to being able to treat so many different skin conditions, Genesis stands out because of how convenient it is. You can finish a single treatment in just about half an hour. There’s no need to wait for an anesthetic to take effect, and there’s no complex preparation involved. All you need to do is schedule your appointment and show up on time. We’ll take care of the rest.
4. Painless and Easy
If you’re wondering what the catch is, we have to be honest: there is none! Genesis is the most comfortable skin treatment available. You won’t feel any pain at all since the laser doesn’t actually damage your cells or sting you in any way. As it warms up your skin cells, you may feel a tingling sensation or a rush of warmth, but never any burning or pain. In fact, most patients report that it’s rather soothing and enjoyable.
The treatment is also extremely easy to do from both your perspective and that of your aesthetician. There’s no way it can go wrong, no side effects to worry about, and no preparation needed from you. While we may advise against tanning sessions and we do ask you to avoid wearing lots of makeup the day of your treatment, there’s really nothing else you need to do to ensure the best results.
5. Results Get Better With Time
Collagen production starts to ramp up within a day or two of your treatment, however you won’t notice complete results right away. It takes a few weeks to see the full extent of your skin’s repair. You can continue to get more treatments if you would like to get even better results. Most patients get several treatments over the course of 3-6 months until they are satisfied with their appearance.
After that, you can get a maintenance session once a year or so to keep your skin looking healthy and young. Best of all, Laser Genesis works on people of all ages and skin tones. There aren’t any contraindications to look out for, so everyone is a candidate for a healthier look.
