Laser Genesis is an advanced skin care procedure for people who need to treat conditions such as redness, fine lines, enlarged pores and scarring. The procedure is a safe and effective way to improve signs of aging and sun damage.
Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, led by the fantastic and dignified Dr. Gregg Reger, provides Laser Genesis and other innovative and advanced medical spa aesthetic procedures to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding communities across the landscape.
How does it Work?
The Laser Genesis technique helps generate fresh collagen fibers that compose a large part of the skin. As the non-invasive laser energy penetrates through the upper skin layers in a safe and painless way, it heats the dermis gently to mitigate redness and promote collagen.
This enables the development of smaller pores, even skin tone, reduction in fine lines and a smooth skin texture. The procedure targets small vessels under the skin’s surface to diffuse a ruddy complexion and redness. This unique skin care treatment also helps in addressing conditions such as rosacea.
Laser Genesis procedure involves the use of a specific non-ablative laser called the 1064 Nd:YAG. Unlike harsher methods, this treatment does not harm the top layers of the skin.
Areas of Treatment
Nearly any area of the body can be safely treated with Laser Genesis. It is more commonly used in areas such as the face, neck and chest. The procedure is also highly effective in diminishing the effect of scars from every part of the body. This includes both acne scars and surgical scars.
Patients with any skin type can benefit from Laser Genesis, but it is more effective for people with light to medium skin. Recovery is easier compared to other laser techniques because Laser Genesis procedure will not wound the skin surface. Optimal results are usually achieved in about five treatment sessions.
A treatment session can be performed in less than an hour, and patients often use their lunch hour from work to receive this treatment. They can simply go back to their normal routine after the treatment session. The procedure is ideally suited for people who wish to restore and maintain a youthful, healthy and glowing skin.
Genesis of the entire face is generally performed in about 45 minutes. Spot treatments around your eyes or mouth take approximately 15 minutes. Maintenance treatments every three to six months will ensure continued skin improvement and delay collagen breakdown.
The treatment is performed as an in-office procedure and no topical numbing agent or other anesthetic is necessary. However, the patient will be required to wear protective eyewear. During the procedure, the laser hand-piece is moved back and forth above the skin, gently warming the treatment area. The procedure is painless and patients typically describe it as relaxing.
Following the Laser Genesis treatment, a patient can resume their normal activities immediately. But they should avoid sun exposure and apply sunscreen.
