“The Complexion Laser”
Laser Genesis is a breakthrough non-ablative photo rejuvenation procedure that provides multiple benefits beyond the popular “photo-facial.” Laser Genesis addresses common skin conditions due to the aging process and the result is a healthier, younger-looking complexion. Clinical effects such as reduced wrinkles, diminished pore size, softening of acne scarring, reduction in redness and improved skin texture are possible with this Cutera exclusive technology.
The longer 1064nm wavelength targets multiple layers of the dermis and ultimately Type I collagen is formed with cross-linking of the fibers. Studies using microscopy analysis to measure the dermal collagen fibers show the production of Type I collagen growth post treatment, which actually increases skin firmness and improves skin texture.
How does the procedure work?
The treatments are performed in a comfortable setting without the need for topical anesthetics or gel. Gentle heating of the skin’s surface is experienced as the hand piece is moved back and forth slightly above the surface of the skin. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities. A mild warming sensation remains for up to 1 hour.
Can a specific area be treated?
Yes, the fine wrinkles around the eyes, lips, or other facial areas can be specifically treated.
Individual needs and conditions vary. Generally, four to six treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment. More intense results will be noticed six months after the last treatment.
