Laser Genesis Q & A

What is Laser Genesis?

Laser Genesis provides a noninvasive skin-rejuvenation treatment for skin concerns such as redness and scarring. Laser Genesis delivers micro pulses of energy to activate collagen development and remodel your skin. It’s safe for all skin types.

During treatment, a technician applies the laser energy to the affected areas using a specialized handpiece, and you feel a gentle warming of your skin’s surface. The energy passes safely through your skin’s outermost layer and is absorbed as heat by the deeper tissues and underlying structures. The proteins in the deepest layers of your skin multiply to provide greater strength and smoothness.


Where is Laser Genesis effective?

Laser Genesis can treat your face, neck, and body. It’s effective on a variety of common skin complaints including:

  • Brown spots
  • Rosacea and facial redness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring

As the laser energy heats the dermal tissues and collagen proteins, it triggers your body to heal naturally. Blood and nutrients circulate to the treatment area, jump-starting the creation of newer, healthier tissues and stronger collagen fibers. 

The treatment helps you achieve tighter, softer-looking skin. Redness dissipates and exposed blood vessels fade.


What should I expect at a Laser Genesis treatment?

A Laser Genesis treatment lasts about 30 minutes. During the session, you feel a warming sensation as the wand passes about a half-inch above your skin. Afterward, you don’t need to schedule downtime, so you can go back to work, school, or other daily activities right away.


How many sessions will I need to see results?

Each patient’s skin is different, so the team at Capital Skin develops a treatment plan appropriate for you. Typically, six treatments spaced one to two weeks apart are enough to make noticeable changes in your skin’s appearance.

After each session, the changes in texture, redness, and fine lines take a month or two to appear. The changes occurring in your deep skin cells take time to become apparent in the top layers of your skin.
