According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), acne is the most common skin condition in America for people between 18 and 24 years old. With the latest laser technology, you can reduce the appearance of acne breakouts, and remove any scars you already have. Laser Genesis is by far the most comfortable laser acne treatment.
Acne occurs when the pores are clogged with oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. The inflammation can appear as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and cysts on the face, shoulders, back, chest, buttocks and upper arms. Many people treat their acne with over-the-counter creams, gels, scrubs and lotions that have little or no effect. The answer may be Laser Genesis to treat and prevent acne breakouts.
How it Works
Laser Genesis gently heats the deeper layers of skin tissue. This effectively breaks up the dirt, oil and bacteria that are the main causes of acne, and stimulates the regeneration of collagen, which gives the new, smooth surface of the skin. Our trained professionals use near-infrared (NIR) Nd: YAG laser technology at a low energy level that slowly builds up the heat in the dermis. Studies show that this type of laser treatment may stimulate the long-lasting production of elastin, the highly elastic protein that makes your skin firm.
If you are new to laser skin treatments or have wondered if lasers are a good acne treatment, Laser Genesis may be your best option because the treatment is as comfortable as a regular facial. You can talk to our skin specialist and learn more about the procedure.
Benefits of Laser Genesis
While it may take three or more treatments to get the results you want depending on the extent and severity of your acne, the treatments are short. One treatment takes about 30 minutes. Each treatment is about two weeks apart and you see a noticeable improvement even after the first treatment. It is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime. This makes it the best treatment for people with a busy schedule who don’t have time for recovery.
What to Expect
If Laser Genesis is your best acne treatment option, you may be asked to avoid exposure to the sun for at least a week before and after your treatment. It is also important to wear sunscreen before and after your treatment. This will help your beautiful new skin last longer.
