Laser Genesis is a treatment for many skin conditions, including rosacea. The laser stimulates collagen production and new skin cell growth to smooth fine wrinkles, shrink pore size and close the tiny capillaries and veins that cause the redness of rosacea. The procedure has no downtime, so it is convenient to have the treatment done during your lunch hour.
Lasers have been used for more than 35 years to treat a wide range of medical problems, including skin issues. Laser Genesis has been proven to stimulate new collagen production and does not damage the upper layers of skin. Each treatment generally takes about a half an hour.
To get the smooth, clear skin you want, it usually takes a series of treatments, depending on the issue being treated and how severe it is. The effect is gradual, and most people see improvement about halfway through the series of treatments. When all of your treatments are complete, our specialist may prescribe a skin care regimen for your particular skin type that will help make the results last longer. Many people find that they only require one Laser Genesis maintenance treatment every 6 to 12 months.
For most patients, the improvements are dramatic. Since the aging process is continuing, it may not be possible to predict how long the effects of the treatment will last. However, collagen production continues long after the last treatment with an increasing rate over time. To get the best results for rosacea, it is necessary to follow the instructions of our specialist that may include dietary suggestions and skin care procedures to control the underlying causes.
Rosacea is a red rash that appears in adults across the cheeks and nose. There are some things that can worsen the condition, such as exposure to the sun, excessive alcohol intake and diet. Rosacea cannot be cured, but Laser Genesis may reduce the redness to help improve your appearance.
We recommend that you stay out of the sun for at least a week before treatment because a recent suntan or burn can sensitize your skin and make the treatment less effective. On the day of the treatment, you should not apply any lotion, sunblock, moisturizer or makeup.
