Here, you’ll learn more about one of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments available today — Laser Genesis — and find out how this exciting technology can virtually turn back the clock on your dull, lifeless skin.

What does laser skin rejuvenation do?

During a laser skin rejuvenation treatment with Laser Genesis, also known as a laser peel, patients can lie back and relax. If needed, a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to starting the treatment to ensure maximum comfort, though most patients tolerate treatment without this step. After your eyes are covered with protective eyewear, the Laser Genesis handpiece is glided over the skin’s surface, emitting pulsating beams of laser energy that penetrate to the deeper layers of tissue and work to stimulate collagen and elastin production and cell turnover. This process helps to destroy damaged skin cells and encourages a smoother, clearer, firmer complexion over time. Common skin concerns that can be addressed with Laser Genesis laser skin rejuvenation include:

  • Fine lines and early wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Discoloration
  • Sun damage
  • Redness/rosacea
  • Rough skin texture
  • Scaly or patchy skin
  • Acne scarring
  • Other types of scars
  • Dull skin
  • Lifeless skin

How soon will I notice results after laser skin rejuvenation?

Following your Laser Genesis treatment, you may experience mild redness and irritation, similar to the side effects of a mild sunburn. Still, most patients are comfortable returning to work and other activities right away, and it is possible to reapply makeup after laser skin rejuvenation if desired. Over the next several days, some peeling or flaking may occur, and patients should take care not to pick at their healing skin. Over the next several weeks, patients will start to notice their skin looking better and better as collagen, elastin, and new, healthy skin cells begin taking shape beneath the skin’s surface.

Is laser skin resurfacing safe for dark skin tones?

Unfortunately, laser skin rejuvenation with Laser Genesis is not appropriate for certain patients, including those with particularly dark skin tones and patients with active acne outbreaks or skin infections. If you are found not to be a candidate for Laser Genesis, our experienced team will work closely with you to determine which skin care treatments and products may be an alternative to Laser Genesis that will be safe, appropriate, and effective for you.
