Laser Genesis is a non-invasive procedure that uses a laser to gently heat the skin, to kick start collagen and elastin production to help lift and tighten skin. It also helps to even out skin tone issues such as redness and pigmentation.
How Laser Genesis Works
Laser Genesis near-infrared (NIR) irradiation rejuvenates your skin. The laser heats the dermis (middle layer of skin) directly under the epidermis (outer layer of skin). The aesthetician moves the handheld device back and forth across the area to be treated (face, neck, chest, or hands) during a 30-minute session.
This heating of the dermis stimulates collagen production, which plumps the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The heat from the laser also constricts blood vessels, which helps reduce redness and rosacea.
The number of sessions you will need for optimal results will depend on your skin type and the issues we are treating. In general, most clients have 3-6 treatments spaced about a month apart. Any clients opt for a maintenance treatment once a month after that to maintain results.
