In the quest for perfecting your skin, subtlety should not be overlooked in favor of a quick fix.
Oftentimes, clients want that one treatment to cure all that ails them, but then they are faced with downtime or unable to wear makeup for a day, like with a chemical peel.
A multi-treatment process is sometimes a better alternative for your lifestyle and for getting the results you want. One such treatment is Laser Genesis.
Over the course of four to six treatments, Laser Genesis addresses large pores, red skin, uneven skin texture, and scars from acne or other causes. Using modern laser technology, the treatments are painless. The laser promotes collagen growth and improves the look of skin. (Microneedling also boasts collagen production; click here to learn more about that treatment, which should also be done several times for best results.)
You should start to see noticeable results after the third or fourth treatment, but you should see subtle results in the weeks following the first treatment. The overall effect of Laser Genesis is a gradual one.
How Does it Work?
The Laser Genesis procedure uses a non-invasive laser to effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse and excessive redness, and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects like skin irritation.
Treatments can be performed without the use of a topical anesthetic. Patients have described the treatment as relaxing. You may experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser is moved about a half inch above your skin.
Immediately following a treatment, you can return to normal activities.
How Long Will it Last?
Most clients will see sustained results for up to 12 months following four to six Laser Genesis treatments, but this varies depending upon the issue you are addressing and your at-home skincare regimen.
To ensure the longest lasting results, here are a few tips:
- Use sunblock (SPF 50) year-round
- Follow your skincare professional’s advice and follow his or her recommended regimen
- Limit smoking and drinking
- Eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly
- Booster your results with a single treatment every year
