Everything You Need To Know About Laser Genesis
Laser Genesis is one of our most popular laser facials. And it’s no wonder since Genesis is by far the most comfortable of all laser treatments. As soothing as Genesis feels, its benefits are more than skin deep. Genesis uses laser energy to gently heat layers of tissue in the dermis. The rising temperature breaks up oil and dirt, rebuilds collagen and evens out skin tone. Genesis is a must for those who are new to lasers or a little nervous about the whole laser concept. As comfortable as a regular facial and with a superior safety profile, Laser Genesis is the most requested laser treatment at my spa, Skin Bar NYC!
What is Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is a laser facial. Popular for its cumulative effects, comfort level and wide range of benefits. Genesis is performed using YAG laser technology at low energy with pulse settings that gradually build up heat to stimulate the lower layers of skin.
What can it do for me?
If your skin looks dry, dull and in need of a boost then Genesis is probably what your skin would ask for if it could speak. Laser Genesis brings the spring back to your skin by shrinking large pores, evening skin tone and smoothing out fine lines. If you suffer from light to moderate rosacea, Laser Genesis reduces the redness. Clients with light acne scars benefit from the production of collagen that Genesis activates plumping the skin and reducing the appearance of scarring. At Skin Bar NYC, we recommend adding Laser Genesis to your membership regimen at the point in life that collagen begins to break down (around our mid-thirties) as a preventive anti-aging measure. Genesis is a must for clients 40 and older.
Is it safe for me?
Laser Genesis is performed with a YAG laser. The same laser wavelength used to treat dark skin for laser hair removal. Because of the wavelength, Genesis is safe for all skin types and ideal for light and medium skin tones. Genesis applies repeating pulses of low energy that slowly heat layers of the skin. The slow and even increase in temperature make Laser Genesis very safe and comfortable. Laser Genesis is effective for treatment on the face, neck and décolleté. If you have a dark complexion consider a consultation with a licensed skin care professional like the staff at Skin Bar NYC.
What should I expect?
Laser Genesis is a 30 minute treatment. There are no gels or numbing creams necessary. Your skin care specialist will cleanse your skin, place goggles on your eyes for protection, select your treatment settings and go to work. The laser energy feels warm and soothing just like sitting in the sun on a lawn chair- really!
How should I prepare?
It’s important to avoid sun exposure 2 weeks before treatment and 1 week after. Your skin holds on to the heat for a day or two after the treatment. So make sure to be extra careful in the summer months and avoid strenuous exercise and steam rooms right before or after treatment. Be sure to wear sunscreen before and after treatment. Sunscreen use ensures you protect your investment!
Is it the best option for my problem?
If you have regular facials, but feel like they just don’t get you the results you are looking for. Or you feel like results have peaked, try adding Laser Genesis to your regimen. You will see a noticeable improvement in the quality of your skin right away.
Laser Genesis and IPL are often confused and considered interchangeable to many first time clients that visit our spa. Remember this rule: If you’re primary concern is sun damage and brown spots on the surface of your skin, IPL is likely the right option for you. If your skin is not reflective of how young you feel, due to a loss of elasticity and fullness in your face, Laser Genesis will start you on the path to reclaim your glow.
