How many treatments are required?
We recommend a series of 6 treatments about 2 – 4 weeks apart depending on the concern. After this series maintenance treatments will be required. Some patients will have laser genesis as their 4 – 8 weekly facial.
How long will the results last?
Directly after each treatment you will experience glowing, plump like effects – these will often last about 1 week. The deeper effects such as collagen and elastin production will last up to 4 weeks post treatment, we find the more treatment our patients have the better their results become.
Prior to treatment:
We recommend ceasing the use of vitamin A on the skin 5 days prior to treatment. There mustn’t be the presence of any cold sores or treatment will need to be postponed. If you have had recently been very exposed in the sun we also recommend postponing for a few weeks – this will help to reduce hyperpigmentation.
During the treatment:
You skin will receive a deep cleanse and mild exfoliation to ensure there is no makeup or dead skin cells. Throughout the laser treatment you will feel a warm sensation, your skin will heat up to around 42-44 degrees – for the majority of the treatment you will be quite comfortable, some areas you will feel the heat more. Your feedback throughout the treatment is important to ensure we aren’t heating the skin up too much. Your eyes will be protected with the use of specific laser goggles.
