Do you have reddish facial skin from rosacea or uneven skin tone from sun damage? Are large pores, acne or acne scarring detracting from the beauty of your skin? Is your skin beginning to lose its elasticity with age? Many skin imperfections can be treated with laser therapy, removing small flaws, redness, and scars while improving the skin’s overall aesthetics. One of the most effective laser therapy options for improving skin appearance is a Laser Genesis treatment.
Laser Genesis is a non-ablative laser skin treatment that helps minimize redness, improve skin texture and fade skin imperfections like acne scars. Laser Genesis can also be used to treat active acne, reducing breakouts and clearing the skin. Since this type of laser treatment is non-ablative, it does not remove top skin layers like laser skin resurfacing treatments. Instead, it targets deeper layers in the skin to stimulate healing and increase collagen production. The result is more even, toned and textured skin that looks healthier and more radiant and youthful after every treatment session.
One of the benefits of Laser Genesis treatments is the stimulation of collagen production, increasing the levels within the skin. Collagen levels decline as you get older, resulting in thinner skin that loses its elasticity. As collagen levels drop, the skin can begin to show fine lines and wrinkles; it can also begin to droop or sag. Stimulating collagen production can revive aging skin and help improve the elasticity.
Laser Genesis treatments can offer a non-invasive facial skin tightening effect for the early stages of aging. The laser treatment stimulates the deeper layers of skin, producing a healing response that results in higher collagen levels. In the weeks after treatment, the skin can become tighter and firmer, looking more youthful. For the best effect, multiple treatments spaced a few weeks apart are used for facial skin tightening. Treatments can be repeated periodically to maintain the more youthful appearance of the skin.
The treatment works by using laser light that specifically targets the pigment within the blood supply to the wart to kill the HPV virus. The Genesis Plus LASER is the newest generation “smart” podiatry-specific laser using the 1064 nm Nd:YAG technology which specifically targets the warty structure for optimum patient safety and comfort. Older generations of LASERs such as CO2 devices cause significant tissue damage resulting in a greater chance of complications such as scarring.
Treatment usually takes only a few minutes and most patients experience minimal to no discomfort. Your comfort and safety are our priority. The warts or skin tags are typically iced prior to the procedure or if a large wart, local anesthetic may be required. Most patients can simply walk in, have the procedure done, and then walk right out. Typically only one or two treatments are required so you can get back to your activities and enjoy life again without reservations.
