When it comes to turning back the clock on your appearance, you have many different options. From injectable treatments to surgical procedures, you can tighten loose skin, smooth away wrinkles and restore youthful vitality to your complexion. If you are looking for a way to get effective anti-aging results without discomfort or downtime, the Laser Genesis at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics may be the perfect solution for you.
What is Laser Genesis? Laser Genesis is a non-ablative skin treatment designed to stimulate the body’s own collagen production and reduce the appearance of minor skin imperfections and signs of aging. The procedure delivers laser energy deep beneath the skin’s surface without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. Results of Laser Genesis treatments tend to be subtle, consistent and long-lasting.
Best Candidates for Treatments
skLaser Genesis works well on nearly any skin type and tone. The procedure is used to address some of the following skin concerns:
• Facial redness and small, visible vessels on the skin’s surface
• Fine lines and facial wrinkles
• Some types of hyperpigmentation, including age spots
• Shallow scarring and enlarged pores
• Uneven skin texture and tone due to sun damage or aging
While Laser Genesis is most often requested as a treatment for the face, it can also be used to reverse signs of aging on the neck, chest and backs of the hands. The treatment is not invasive, which means you don’t have to worry about anesthesia, incisions or a recovery period during and after this procedure. Patients that may not be good candidates for surgery due to a medical condition or other factors may find Laser Genesis to be a safe, effective option in skin rejuvenation.
Laser Genesis is performed at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics on an outpatient basis without the need for any type of anesthesia. A handheld applicator is used to deliver the laser energy underneath the skin’ surface without actually penetrating the skin. Patients report feeling a sensation of warmth as the laser moves across the skin, but it is rarely described as uncomfortable. Duration of the procedure will depend on the size of the treatment area, but most treatments can be performed in well under an hour.
After the treatment, patients are able to return to their daily activities right away. The skin may be slightly red after the procedure, but this side effect will subside within a few hours. Laser Genesis does not result in any significant flaking or peeling, so you don’t have to worry about others knowing you just had a cosmetic treatment.
The results of Laser Genesis tend to develop over time and after a number of treatment sessions. Sessions are usually spaced about four weeks apart and most patients will need a minimum of 4-6 to achieve their full desired results. Once those results are achieved, a maintenance treatment every 6-12 months will help you keep them.
Laser Genesis is an effective way to treat a wide variety of aging symptoms, giving you a healthier, more youthful complexion. To learn more about this revolutionary procedure, contact Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics in Carlsbad at 760-472-5088 or in San Diego at 858-943-2443.
