Laser Genesis is a cutting-edge laser treatment that uses the skin’s natural healing process to combat signs of aging and sun damage for a more youthful complexion on the face and neck. It can also be used to treat other areas of the body as well such as the shoulders, hands, and decolletage.
Micro-pulses of laser energy activate collagen remodeling to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and target unwanted brown spots and facial redness. Although the individual treatment results are subtle, the overall effect of a treatment series can be quite dramatic.
Overall, Laser Genesis can improve common concerns like facial redness, brown spots, and fine lines and wrinkles. With quick treatments and no downtime, Laser Genesis can fit into your busy schedule and is considered the perfect lunchtime procedure by many patients.
What to Expect From Treatment
To begin treatment, you will be asked to wear goggles to protect your eyes from the laser light.
The laser applicator which looks like a small wand will be used to target the treatment areas. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure; patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic.
A series of four to six Laser Genesis treatments is recommended to achieve desired results, and ongoing maintenance treatments are encouraged to sustain results over time. Your Seattle Skin & Laser Genesis provider will discuss a personalized treatment plan during your consultation.
