As the largest organ and primary outer barrier of the body, the skin receives the most damages when exposed to an unhealthy environment. The harmful external factors, along with the natural process of aging, and the body’s reaction to our lifestyle, affect the appearance of the skin and cause skin imperfections. Fortunately, treatments are available as self-care and rejuvenation to combat common skin problems. For the restoration of skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and acne scars, we recommend Laser Genesis, which improves collagen production in the skin without damaging it.
What Does It Do for the Skin
Laser Genesis improves the skin by targeting the underlying skin (dermal) to deliver a gentle single wavelength that regenerates and stimulates collagen production. The procedure for Laser Genesis is non-invasive and non-ablative (it does not harm the outer layer of the skin), which causes minimal recovery and side effects compared to wounding lasers that can cause discoloration of the skin, bruises, and peeling.
It works directly on the skin by cleansing the epidermis from dirt build-up caused by too much sebum. The transmitted temperature from the device kills the bacteria that causes acne breakout and penetrates the skin to reach the dermis and stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
We know what collagen does to our skin: it creates more youthful and healthy skin with lesser imperfections. The growth of new collagen improves texture, clearing out the fine lines and wrinkles. The new skin will decrease dark spots and acne scars and result in an even skin tone after several treatments.
What You Should Expect on the Procedure
The treatment typically lasts for 30 minutes. Like a typical laser procedure, you will be asked to lay down comfortably, giving more access to the practitioner to perform the treatment. You will receive eye coverings or goggles while your hair is tied away from your face. Before the laser treatment starts, your practitioner will cleanse your face for a more effective penetration of the heat. One thing that regular customers like about Laser Genesis is it is a not painful treatment. Your skin may feel warm from the laser, but it will not cause pain at all. Instead, customers described it as feeling like the sun on the face, which feels good to the skin.
Common Side Effects, After-treatment Care, and Downtime
Since the treatment is ablative, expect the treatment to have a minimum trace of medspa visit on the treated area. In most cases, the skin may be red and feel like a sunburn. Though these symptoms typically stay 1 hour but could extend up to 48 hours. Some customers have noticed an instant glow after their session, but who wouldn’t want that?
Make sure to get certified experts in aesthetic treatments to do Laser Genesis on your skin, as a procedure in the hands of an untrained provider will cause damage and very unsafe side effects on the skin.
Laser Genesis requires no downtime and minimal recovery. After the treatment, your skin may feel dry and sensitive. This is normal and should fade after a while. However, we advise that you use a moisturizer. It is also necessary to protect your face against harmful sun exposure, especially in the post-procedure stage when the skin is most sensitive. We recommend ZO Skin Health Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50, which is perfect for post-procedure and sensitive skin.
When Will You See the Result
Laser treatments typically require 3-5 sessions for a complete result, with each session having 3-4 weeks intervals. New collagen will start to grow during the interval, and there will be visible improvements that you will notice. We recommend continuing the session and follow your schedule to boost the pleasant result of the treatment. Talk to your provider and construct a clear plan of your program for Laser Genesis.
Determine if You are a Candidate for Laser Genesis
Collagen production starts to slow down at the age of 25. During these years of life, common skin problems begin to appear, such as enlarge pores, wrinkles, and fine lines. Laser Genesis will significantly improve the skin with those conditions. This laser treatment can also even out the skin’s texture and tone. If you have a problem with dark spots, rosacea, acne, indented or atrophic acne scars, and raised/hypertrophic scars or keloids, then you should have a Laser Genesis treatment.

But to be honest, I think that if you made this far reading the blog, Laser Genesis might be what you really need to look and feel best in your own skin.
