Laser Genesis is a revolutionary way to rejuvenate the skin and restore youthful vitality to your appearance. This procedure is effective in treating a host of specific skin concerns as well, including sun damage and signs of aging. In a single procedure, you can achieve smoother, clearer skin with full results usually seen after a series of treatment sessions. Available at Coastal Plains Surgical Care, Laser Genesis offers our Beeville patients another option in skin enhancement that does not involve incisions, anesthesia or downtime.
What is Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis uses the Nd:Yag laser to perform non-ablative skin rejuvenation, which produces improvement across the entire face. In addition, Laser Genesis can address the following skin concerns:
- Fine lines and facial wrinkles
- Diffuse skin redness
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Shallow scarring from varicella or acne
- Enlarged pores
- Some types of hyperpigmentation
Most patients will see subtle results over time, with full results generally appearing after around 4-6 treatment sessions. In addition to treating the face, Laser Genesis may also be used to treat the neck, chest and other areas of the body with these specific skin concerns.
About the Procedure
Laser Genesis does not require any type of anesthesia beforehand. Most patients describe the procedure as comfortable and even relaxing. As the laser handpiece is moved across your skin, you will feel a gentle warming sensation. This indicates the laser energy is penetrating the skin’s surface, going to work in the underlying skin structure to reduce redness and stimulate collagen production.
After the treatment, you will be able to return to your daily activities right away. Skin in the treated area may be slightly red after the procedure, but this side effect should subside within a few hours. If you will be participating in any outdoor activities after your procedure, sunscreen is strongly advised to protect the skin and prevent discoloration or other side effects.
In the days and weeks following your Laser Genesis procedure, you will see pigmentation marks darken before they flake away. The skin will appear softer and smoother after your very first treatment and those results will continue to improve after you undergo your subsequent treatment sessions. Pores will also appear visibly smaller even after a single Laser Genesis treatment.
Once you have had 4-6 treatment sessions, you should enjoy the full results of your procedure. Those results, which can be fairly dramatic, typically last around 6-12 months. You can extend your results by following our recommended skin care regimen, protecting your skin from the sun and following a healthy diet and exercise program. Because collagen production is stimulated at the same time the skin is treated, results will be both natural and long-lasting.
Is Laser Genesis Right for You?
Laser Genesis can be used on both men and women with nearly any skin type and tone. The procedure is commonly recommended for patients with early signs of aging that can be effectively reversed with laser rejuvenation. It may also be advised for patients with specific skin concerns like shallow scarring and enlarged pores. Patients that schedule the procedure should be willing to commit to a series of treatment sessions in order to enjoy the best possible results from this procedure.
