Long and unprotected hours in the sun can cause more than dry skin and sunburn. It also increases your risk of skin cancers and triggers long-term structural changes in the skin. Sun damage, moreover, slows down your skin cell’s renewal rate and destroys the collagen and elastin. This then results in premature skin aging.
Overexposure to the sun’s UV rays also accelerates the appearance of visible signs of aging such as wrinkles, volume loss, and uneven pigmentation. This only makes it important to prioritize sun protection and limit your sun exposure, especially during peak hours – 10am to 3pm.
But what if your skin is already exhibiting signs of sun damage? Sun protection is still a must to prevent further damage, but you can also benefit from a non-invasive aesthetic treatment like Laser Genesis Skin Therapy. This uses an innovative laser technology to stimulate collagen regrowth and promote healthy and vibrant skin.
Let’s dive in a bit deeper to understand how Laser Genesis can help fight sun damage for a healthier and younger-looking complexion.
The basics of Laser Genesis
Laser Genesis is a US FDA-cleared procedure that uses non-invasive technology to treat and improve different skin concerns. It gently heats upper dermis well below the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen regrowth and improve skin’s overall appearance. It also generates extra heat in dilated capillaries to reduce skin redness (commonly associated with rosacea).
The procedure can help improve:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin texture
- Sun damage
Is Laser Genesis really effective?
This non-invasive procedure is proven effective in addressing a number of skin concerns. After each treatment of Laser Genesis, you can expect subtle yet consistent results. You will need multiple sessions of the procedure (about 3 to 6) to see optimal results, but this will pay off in the long run.
As Laser Genesis can stimulate collagen regrowth, you can enjoy completely rejuvenated skin with better texture and complexion. It can effectively minimize enlarged pores, as well as fade or lighten dark spots and other types of hyperpigmentation. Laser Genesis can be used on the:
- Décolletage (or upper chest area)
Do take note, however, that each patient is different. It is best to schedule a consultation with an aesthetic doctor in Singapore to find out if Laser Genesis is right for you or how many sessions you’ll need to see desirable results.
Does it hurt? Are there side effects?
While Laser Genesis heats the skin, most patients describe the procedure as relaxing and therapeutic. You are also likely to experience a gentle warming of the skin’s surface, as the Laser Genesis handpiece is moved back and forth above the skin. There is no need for any type of anesthetics, as the procedure is painless and done in a comfortable manner.
You may also be glad to know that there are no unwanted side effects like skin irritation or bruising with Laser Genesis. There is also no downtime, which means that you can immediately go back to your normal routines after the treatment.
Can you combine Laser Genesis with other treatments?
Yes, you can. Here at Cutis Medical Laser Clinics, we have the:

This combination helps firm the skin and improve overall tone and texture without cuts, needles, and downtime.
Dermapen-4 and Laser Genesis – Microneedling using Dermapen-4 creates miniscule needle puncture on the skin to trigger the production of new and healthy collagen. This is effective in treating scars, large pores, and signs of aging. The combination of Dermapen-4 and Laser Genesis helps you get better results in correcting uneven skin tone and texture.
