How Does Laser Genesis work?
Laser Genesis works by stimulating the growth of collagen to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, reduce the production of sebum, tighten pores and reduce redness on the skin. The dermis, located below the skin’s surface, is gently heated and the treatment is very soothing and pain-free. The surrounding tissues do not suffer any damage from heat during the procedure.
How often should I Go for Laser Genesis?
Depending on your skin condition, the problem being faced, skin type and the desired results, your dermatologist will advise you on the number of sessions required to give you the best results. Most patients report optimal results after six sessions. The treatment lasts for an hour and has no downtime. You will usually have to go for a series of 3-6 treatments within a month before you can start to notice a change on your face. When the final results take effect, you will notice a significant glow, tone and fullness in your skin, making you have a more youthful and radiant complexion. Since each patient is different from the other, it is advisable for you to schedule a consultation with your doctor to find out the specific requirements of your Laser Genesis treatment.
