Redness of the skin can develop for many reasons. At times, it can be a symptom of skin irritation or damage that is only temporary. In other cases, it may be caused by rosacea or other skin conditions. Regardless of the cause, many patients are motivated to find a solution to skin redness in order to achieve a clear, even complexion. Laser Genesis®, an advanced laser treatment, is specifically designed to manage skin redness. With Laser Genesis® treatments, patients can achieve clear, beautiful skin and enjoy other benefits along the way.
How Does Laser Genesis® Work?
The Laser Genesis® system uses light energy to gently heat the upper dermis. The heat from this process targets facial capillaries, which are the source of skin redness, to enhance the complexion. In addition to reducing skin redness, the Laser Genesis® treatment stimulates collagen production. Over time, an increase in collagen will contribute to improvements in skin elasticity and volume. Thanks to Laser Genesis®, patients can enjoy clearer, firmer and more youthful skin.
How Many Laser Genesis® Treatments Will I Need?
The Laser Genesis® treatment is most effective when performed as a series of treatments. The number of required treatments will vary by patient, depending on the current condition of their skin and their skin type. Typically, a series of 5 to 10 treatments is recommended. These treatments will be performed a few weeks apart in order to let the skin fully heal between treatment sessions. You may begin to notice results after your first treatment, but it may take several treatments before optimal results are achieved.
How Can I Prolong the Results of Laser Genesis®?
The results from Laser Genesis® can be long-lasting, but many patients combine treatment with other efforts to maximize their results. Using sunscreen and avoiding excessive sun exposure can be hugely beneficial to skin health, and will help minimize skin redness. Eating healthy foods and staying hydrated can also be beneficial. In some cases, you may want to combine your Laser Genesis® treatment with other cosmetic services.
