Q: What Is Laser Genesis?
A: Well, I can’t start this Q& A off without saying how much I LOVE Laser Genesis. I recommend this treatment to just about every client who comes to see me; especially if they have an event coming up soon (even that weekend) because most people see results right away.
And this service is one of our favorite treatments at Renew – not just for you the client – but I personally use Laser Genesis for my skincare routine + maintenance.
Ok, enough about me and my love for Laser Genesis – let’s find out WHY I love this skincare treatment so much and think you will too!
WHAT IS LASER GENESIS?
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that helps restore and smooth out skin tone and texture as well as reduce acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, redness, pore size and can aid in the treatment of active acne.
The Laser Genesis’s heat-based laser boosts collagen growth and loves to work on treating acne scars and rosacea.
WHO IS LASER GENESIS FOR?
The short answer: just about anyone!
If you struggle with acne, acne scarring, rosacea, large pores or desire an overall refresh of your skin tone and texture – without going under the knife – Laser Genesis is for you.
Of course, there are always exceptions when it comes to certain skin types that Laser Genesis may not be useful for, so please speak with your skin care expert.
HOW DOES LASER GENESIS WORK?
Laser Genesis can be done on the face, neck and chest and depending on the area you’re receiving this treatment, the appointment is typically around 30-45 minutes.
Most people report that Laser Genesis is not painful – only a warm sensation is felt. And yet, another reason why we love this treatment: zero downtime and recovery.
Now, taking into consideration your skin type and desired results, multiple treatments (3-5) of Laser Genesis (spaced out over 4+ weeks) is recommended.
WHAT RESULTS FROM LASER GENESIS CAN I EXPECT?
With this lunchtime laser treatment, you can potentially see results right after receiving Laser Genesis. However, the most optimal results and benefits are seen within 3-6 months (and oftentimes, beyond that timeframe).
Maintenance for results – especially if being treated for pigment and rosacea challenges – are highly recommended every 6-12 months.
Protecting yourself from the sun and maintaining a consistent skincare regimen at home can also help extend your results from Laser Genesis.
