About Laser Genesis – Skin Rejuvenation

Dr. Scott now offers the latest in advanced laser skin rejuvenation with Laser Genesis (also known as the ‘Laser Facial’) by promoting healthy, vibrant looking skin in both men & women. This procedure is a favorite by the Hollywood A-list to prepare for a big event in addition to their usual skin routine.

Laser Genesis stimulates natural processes in the skin to increase collagen production and close down small blood vessels causing diffuse redness. Over several treatments pore size is reduced, diffuse redness is reduced and skin appears more plump and youthful.

How it works

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

Laser Genesis treatments are generally performed by Dr. Scott’s cosmetic nurse under his guidance. However, on request these treatments can also be performed by Dr. Scott.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What areas can be treated?

Laser Genesis can be used to treat the face, neck & décolletage in both men & women.

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, numbing gel 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. Scott will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.

How many treatments will I require?

On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. Dr. Scott will provide a more accurate assessment of number of treatments needed and expected results at the time of consultation.

What are 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.
