Laser Genesis Skin Therapy Frequently Asked Questions for Patients

Scientifically proven to produce new collagen, for the treatment of fine wrinkles, redness and scars.

The Laser Genesis difference.

The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, naturally and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, diffuse redness and scars. You can expect to see consistent results after each treatment. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.

What areas can be treated?

Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy 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.

What does the procedure feel like?

Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.

How does Laser Genesis work?

By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis improves the appearance of wrinkles through collagen stimulation. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

What can I expect before the 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. Your physician will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.

What kind of 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. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.

  • Safely and gently treat diffuse redness
  • Fades acne scarring
  • Continuously stimulates new collagen production
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • Naturally promotes a healthy look

How many treatments will I need?

On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult your physician.

What are the possible side effects?

Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Consult your physician for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.

Limelight photofacial therapy can rid the skin of sun spots, discoloration and fine lines from sun damage. Limelight photofacial therapy has also been shown to help treat the reddening of the skin associated with rosacea. Limelight photofacial therapy can be performed on many areas of the body, with the most popular areas being those heavily exposed to the sun, including the face, hands, shoulders, back and arms.

How does it work?

Limelight photofacial therapy use phototherapy to heat the blood in the top layer of the dermis the melanin pigment. The heat encourages the even spread of both the blood and the pigment, leaving behind a smooth, even skin tone. Limelight photofacial therapy is administered to patients using a manually guided hand piece. The actual administration of the each wave of pulsed light lasts no more than a few seconds and may cause a slight stinging sensation, leaving the skin feeling as though it was lightly snapped by a rubber band. For patients who are concerned about discomfort during the procedure a topical anesthetic can be applied to the areas to be treated 30 minutes before the procedure. For procedures done without the anesthetic the treatment time usually takes 20 minutes. For patients who opt to receive the topical anesthetic the procedure takes closer to an hour, allowing additional time for the topical anesthetic to be fully absorbed. This treatment works best on patients with light to medium colored skin tones, however your dermatologist may be able to customize the treatment for individuals with darker pigmentation. Be sure to consult with your doctor about your compatibility before scheduling the procedure.

Benefits

Limelight photofacial therapy is a quick and painless way for ridding the upper layers of the skin from any visible damage done by the sun. It is also one of the fastest methods for treating discoloration of the skin associated with rosacea. The treatment encourages collagen production around the skin’s capillaries, which can improve the youthful appearance of the skin and also help reduce enlarged pores. The benefits of the procedure begin to emerge 2 to 3 weeks after the initial treatment, with the full results being apparent after a month. Areas of dark pigmentation targeted by the treatment will begin to darken and eventually flake off within one to three weeks after the procedure. Beneath these patches will be beautiful, spot-free skin.
