Laser Genesis is a cosmetic non-ablative laser treatment, meaning it heats your skin but does not remove the top layer, used to smooth out skin tone, fine lines and texture, reduce pore size, treat active acne, and reduce redness and light acne scarring. The heat generated by the laser causes collagen contraction and repair, tightening of pores making them appear smaller and a reduction of redness. You can expect subtle yet consistent results.
Laser Genesis Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel and begins with your Vitality Skin Expert cleansing your face and giving you protective eyewear. She’ll then deliver the laser treatment via a small handheld device. Most Laser Genesis treatments take about 30 minutes, but they can go longer if multiple areas are being treated. You may feel a warm tingling during the treatment. You can also combine Laser Genesis with Micro-Needling, or another regenerative treatment, depending on the results of your skin analysis and the results you are seeking. You and your Vitality Skin Expert will discuss treatment options and what combination of treatments would work best for you.
It’s common not to see results right away, however some of you will. Typically, you will notice the most significant results 3 – 9 weeks later. This treatment works best as a cumulative treatment regimen and is best used at the onset of aging or premature aging. The number of treatments you need will depend the current condition of your skin and desired results, but most clients typically require 4 to 6 treatments spaced out 2 – 4 weeks apart.
One of the best reasons to get a Laser Genesis for skin issues, such as scars, is that your results should be permanent. For pigment issues, you’ll need a follow-up treatment every 12 months. If you protect your skin from sun exposure, don’t smoke, and maintain a healthy lifestyle, your results should last longer. It’s a good idea to get a booster Laser Genesis treatment every 6–12 months to maintain your long-term results.
