What will my skin feel like during and after my Laser Genesis treatment?
Laser Genesis produces a gentle warming sensation during treatment. Immediately following the treatment, the warm feeling continues for about thirty minutes. Many patients report a pleasant mild tingling and a feeling of increased firmness for a day following the treatment.
How long after Laser Genesis treatments may I return to normal activities?
You may return to normal activities immediately following your Laser Genesis treatment. Most patients notice a healthy, rosy glow following Laser Genesis. Aftercare instructions simply include the use of sunscreen as well as consuming plenty of water. This is truly a rejuvenation procedure with no downtime.
How many Laser Genesis treatments will it take to get a great result?
Results are generally seen after just one treatment, but a series of treatments is required for optimum results. The number of treatments needed depends upon the problem being treated, but usually ranges from four to six treatments spaced three to four weeks apart. Depending on the concern being addressed, your provider may recommend other treatments in conjunction with Laser Genesis, such as Vitalize Peel or Titan non-surgical facelift. These may be alternated with Genesis if needed.
How long will my Laser Genesis results last?
One of the greatest advantages of Laser Genesis is that the results continue to accumulate after each treatment and continue far beyond your last treatment. In fact, accelerated collagen production continues following Laser Genesis, peaking at about 12 weeks after your last treatment, then continuing at a steady increased rate. Because the natural aging process is of course continuing, it is difficult to state precisely how long results will last, but benefits seem apparent for several years. Sun protection and attention to skin care are necessary to maintain optimal results. In the case of acne scarring and rosacea, it is necessary to control the underlying condition in order to avoid further skin disruption.
How long does Laser Genesis take?
Genesis of the entire face is generally performed in less than one hour. Because the procedure is quite comfortable, no anesthesia or medication is necessary.
