What is Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is a tried-and-true noninvasive treatment for skin rejuvenation that improves skin health and restores your natural beauty. It is nonablative meaning it is gentle, does not injure the skin, and requires no recovery or downtime. Sometimes called a lunchtime procedure, it causes no scaling or peeling of the skin. You can expect a few hours of redness and some swelling. It is safe for all skin types.
It can take up to a month to see significant changes while new collagen and skin cells are formed. Four to six treatments are often needed to achieve the best results.
Laser Genesis is for patients seeking gradual and significant improvements without the potential negative side effects of ablative lasers. The skin remains intact while producing rejuvenation effects.

How does it work?
It uses laser heat energy delivered in micro-pulses that penetrates the top layer of skin to gently heat the dermis, the middle layer of skin. This stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and new skin cells. The heat shrivels broken blood vessels, breaks up scar tissue and treats redness. Because it improves elasticity and collagen production it plumps the skin reducing the appearance of lines, rough texture and enlarged pores.
Each treatment takes less than 30 minutes. It is painless. All you will feel is a heating sensation like sitting in the sun. It can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, shoulders, and hands
What does treatment feel like?
A gentle warming of the skin occurs as the laser handpiece hovers over the skin and is moved back and forth over the treatment area. Many patients report relaxing effects like a spa treatment.
