Laser Genesis is a form of skin therapy. It uses laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat several skin concerns such as:
- uneven skin texture
- large pores
- diffuse redness or excessive redness

How does it work?
Laser Genesis Skin Therapy works by prompting collagen regrowth in the skin. This will make the skin appear younger. It does this by gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface.The skin anatomy page really goes into the layers of the skin, but we will cover it quickly again here. The upper layer of the skin (the surface) is the epidermis. There is a layer under this skin layer called the dermis. In the dermis, there are networks of collagen and elastin. These proteins are responsible for the strength, support, and tone of the skin. When heat is applied to the dermis, it prompts the collagen to repair itself. This creates more supple skin over time.
What areas can be treated with Laser Genesis?
Patients report great results over the whole face and neck. Some doctors may also suggest this type of therapy to reduce recent scars on other parts of the body.
What is diffuse redness?
Diffuse redness one of the skin issues that can be treated with this form of therapy. It is defined as a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This happens when the small blood vessels beneath the skin expand. It results in an appearance of general redness. In other words, the vessels do not show through the skin. Diffuse redness appears most often on the nose, forehead and cheeks. It is often associated with a condition called rosacea; this can be hereditary. Laser Genesis skin therapy will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this redness.
What is the treatment like?
The treatment is very gentle. Patients often describe it as relaxing and therapeutic. The laser is moved back and forth about an inch above your skin. You will feel a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure, but that’s all. You can expect to return to normal activities right away after you’re done. Be sure to use sunscreen if you’re going outdoors.
What can I expect before the treatment?
Before the treatment you will be asked to take off all of your makeup and moisturizers. In some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated; this is so that facial hair does not interfere with the laser therapy. You will not need to apply any gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to the treatment. Your doctor will review and help with all pre-treatment needs.
What kind of textural improvements can you expect?
Laser Genesis can help to restore your skin’s youthful glow and appearance. It does this by smoothing out the uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a creamier, healthier complexion when you’re done. Large pores will be reduced in size, and minor imperfections will be reduced.
How many treatments will I need?
For most, it is best to have four to six treatments to get the results you are looking for. The results from each session will be subtle, but the effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic. That said, every patient’s condition and needs will vary. For more information about your likely results or the number of treatments needed, consult your doctor.
What are the possible side effects of the Laser Genesis?
Most patients report few if any side effects. However, the most common one is a slight redness. This disappears within a few hours. It’s always best to talk to the doctor about the benefits and risks before starting any new treatment.
