Laser Genesis™ Skin Rejuvenation
Laser Genesis Skin Therapy by Cutera is a US FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that can stimulate collagen regrowth. It promotes healthy and vibrant skin by addressing conditions related to aging and sun damage. It uses an innovative laser technology to safely and effectively treat lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, scars, and redness.
How does Laser Genesis work?
Laser Genesis is a non-ablative, Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet) laser that has a wavelength of 1064nm. It works by gently heating the upper dermis well below the skin’s surface. The heat stimulates the body’s healing response, which then boosts collagen production.
Laser Genesis also generates additional heat in dilated capillaries to reduce facial redness, commonly associated with rosacea. It can improve the overall appearance of your skin by safely and effectively treating this condition.
It can be used be used in different areas of the body, including the:
- Décolletage (or upper chest area)
What are the benefits of Laser Genesis?
This non-invasive procedure is proven effective in addressing and treating a number of skin concerns. These include:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin texture
Is Laser Genesis painful?
Laser Genesis is virtually painless, so there’s no need for anaesthetics or pain medication. You may experience a gentle warming of the skin during the procedure. Most patients, however, often describe the procedure as relaxing and therapeutic.
What results can you expect from Laser Genesis?
You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment. A series of Laser Genesis treatments (3 to 6) can significantly improve the tone and texture of your skin, giving it a healthier and more radiant complexion. It can permanently treat scars, but pigmentation and redness concerns require follow-up treatments.
Are there any side effects or downtime?
Laser Genesis can treat a range of skin concerns, without unwanted side effects like bruising or excessive skin irritation. Most patients experience mild redness after the treatment, but this is temporary and subsides within a few hours. There is no downtime and patients can immediately go back to their routines.
How many Laser Genesis treatments are required to see optimal results?
You may be able to see improvements after the first session, but multiple treatments are needed to see your desired results. In most cases, a series of 3 to 6 treatments (with 3 to 4 weeks intervals) is required, but this will still depend on your skin conditions.
How long do the results last?
This varies from patient to patient, but the average period is between 6 to 12 months. The way you care for and protect your skin (especially from the sun) can also affect the longevity of results. Here are few things that can help maintain or extend the results of your Laser Genesis treatment:
- Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily (SPF 50) and limit your sun exposure.
- Stop smoking or never start in the first place.
- Avoid excessive alcohol drinking (this can dehydrate the skin and cause facial redness).
- Eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
- Get adequate sleep every night (7 to 9 hours).
- Follow a good skincare regimen or the one recommended by your aesthetic doctor.
- Schedule follow-up or maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months.
The 2D Titan-Genesis Skin Rejuvenation
The 2D Skin Rejuvenation is a combination of two non-invasive procedures - Titan and Laser Genesis. This is designed to improve the skin's texture and firmness for smoother and more youthful-looking skin. Both men and women can undergo the 2D Skin Rejuvenation procedure and enjoy its benefits.
So, what is Titan?
Titan Skin Tightening (also by Cutera) is a US FDA-cleared procedure for firming and tightening the skin. It uses a safe, infrared light that gently heats the skin and promotes collagen production. This results in tightening of the skin over time, with improved lines, folds, and mild laxity.
Titan provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis. It is used to treat areas of the face where there are laxity and sagging. These include the jowls, cheeks, and eye areas, as well as the neck and other parts of the body.
Combining these two treatments can minimize pores and improve overall skin texture while also reducing laxity and firming the skin. All of these can be achieved non-invasively without cuts, needles, or longer recovery time.
