    What to Expect From your Treatment

    • Laser Genesis is a noninvasive, restorative laser treatment designed to target and reduce fine lines, scars, large pores, and diffused redness while improving your skins tone and texture. This innovative therapy reaches deep into the dermal layer of your skin to accelerate collagen regrowth, leaving you with vibrant, visibly smoother and even toned healthy looking skin.
    • A Laser Genesis treatment is relaxing and comfortable lasting approximately 45 minutes.

    After Treatment

    1. Mild redness or skin irritation may be experienced after a Laser Genesis procedure, but this will fade over the first couple of hours, leaving you with a vibrant healthy glow. No downtime is required after a Laser Genesis treatment; you will be able to immediately return to normal activities. The main precaution is to protect your skin in the treated area from UV rays.Avoid sun  exposure  and  use  a broad spectrum  (UVA/UVB)  sunscreen  to prevent  further  sun damage. 
    2. Avoid skin irritants  (examples below)  a  few  days  post-treatment. 
    3. Products  containing  tretinoin,  retinol,  benzoyl  peroxide,  glycolic/salicylic  acids,  astringents,  etc.    
    4. Multiple treatments  are  required.  


    Follow Up

    • Follow up treatments should be scheduled every 4-6 weeks.
    • Consistent repeated treatments will produce best results.
