Laser Facial and Scar Reduction

lfsr_bannerLaser Genesis skin therapy is an innovative technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women using non-invasive laser technology safely. Now you can have a more youthful appearance by discretely, yet effectively treating conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, excessive redness and scars. The Laser Genesis procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen. Best of all, there is no downtime and minimal discomfort!

How does it work and will it hurt?

Clients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin. This process will stimulate collagen and ultimately improve the appearance of wrinkles.

What improvements can you expect with Laser Genesis skin therapy?

Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a creamier, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.

What areas can be treated?

Laser Genesis clients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, talk to Dr. Desai about using the Laser Genesis technology to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.

What is diffuse redness?

Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, not discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. Laser Genesis will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.

How many treatments will I need?

The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every client’s condition and needs vary.

How should I prepare for my treatment?

You will not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment. Before the actual Laser Genesis treatment, you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. Dr. Desai will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.

Are there any restrictions post-treatment?

Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but some redness may occur. The use of sunscreen (SPF 30 or greater) is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.

What are the possible side effects?

Although most clients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment.
