How Genesis Skin Rejuvenation Is Performed

Genesis Skin Rejuvenation is a laser treatment that can be used to reduce wrinkles. This procedure is non invasive and will be applied on the surface skin layers. The procedure is effective in eliminating wrinkles, as well as age or liver spots, scars, acne, melasma or other skin pigmentations. Different laser wavelengths may be used to achieve more durable results.

How Genesis Skin Rejuvenation Works

Genesis Skin Rejuvenation is performed by using one or several laser emitting devices. The laser device will apply energy on small portions of skin at a time. The lasers will penetrate the skin and stimulate the formation of new skin cells and collagen. The skin is left intact. The water from the tissues will also be dealt with, and the Genesis Skin Rejuvenation will also improve the texture of the skin.

How Genesis Skin Rejuvenation Is Performed

Before the Genesis Skin Rejuvenation procedure, the surgeon will apply a numbing medicine on the skin that is about to be treated. The cream will act as a local anesthetic. The cream should be left on for a few minutes to become effective and then it is cleaned, so that lasers can be applied. The patient will also be given a pair of goggles, to protect the eyes from the laser beams.

The laser light will be applied individually on each spot and problem area. The plastic surgeon will move slowly, making sure to cover the entire area of the face or neck. The distinction between areas that have been treated will be made by the fact that the untreated areas will have a stronger color.

Different frequency lasers may be combined for more effective results. The laser device will beep to signal that the laser beams have been applied. A longer wavelength laser will be used to penetrate the skin and to stimulate the deeper skin layers heating them and making the body produce collagen. A cooler may assist the procedure, to reduce the burning sensation and discomfort that may be felt while the laser beams are applied.

Duration of Procedure

The duration of the Genesis Skin Rejuvenation treatment will depend on the size of the area that is treated. If only the face is being treated, the treatment will require approximately 30 minutes. If the face has numerous scars and problem areas, the treatment may take longer. The face may be irritated and swollen, but this should resolve within 1 week.

Variations in Genesis Skin Rejuvenation Techniques

The variations in the Genesis Skin Rejuvenation techniques may occur when the plastic surgeon decides on the laser wavelengths. Some devices may have adjustable wavelengths, while other surgeons may use 2 or 3 separate devices. The devices used by each plastic surgeon may vary.

Some surgeons may also opt for an injectible local anesthetic instead of the numbing cream. The patient may also get some muscle relaxing medication before the procedure.
