What is it?

Laser Genesis in a non-ablative laser that works by putting heat into the deeper layers of the skin. By heating the deeper layers our own collagen and elastin fibres are stimulated. It can also be used to stimulate healing, reduce redness and for people who enjoy having a beautiful glow to their skin.

Key Elements/Benefits:
  • No downtime
  • Short treatment times
  • Reduces redness
  • Reduction in pore size
  • Helps eliminate active acne
Who can have laser genesis?

Anyone can have laser genesis, however some medications are contraindicated such as Accutane. Laser Genesis is safe for pregnant and lactating women. The treatment is best designed for people who are wanting to have a gentle treatment with no downtime. It specifically has been proven to reduce rosacea, redness, large pores and uneven skin texture.

Is there downtime?

There is no downtime associated with genesis unlike ablative lasers, laser genesis will leave your skin a little flushed up to 3 hours post treatment. There is no peeling or surface damage post treatment – some patients will have this done on their lunch break.

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.

After the treatment:

Your skin will appear flushed after your treatment, like you have been for a brisk walk. SPF is always applied afterwards – makeup can be worn post treatment if desired however we recommend leaving your skin makeup free for 24 hours if possible.
Note: LED therapy is always performed after your genesis to enhance the benefits of the laser treatment – this is complimentary.

Potential risks and side effects:

With any form of laser there comes some risks and side effects. The most common side effect is some redness to the area, this subsides within a few hours.

The largest risk with laser is the potential formation of a burn or blister, this is very rare however something you should always consider when proceeding with laser treatments.

It is always important to ensure you are having a medical professional perform your treatments to ensure these risks are minimised.
