Laser Facial Rejuvenation (Laser Genesis)
Diffuse redness, rosacea and premature signs of ageing like fine lines are persistent and challenging conditions to treat. Rosacea is believed to affect more than 10% of the Australian population. Laser facial rejuvenation also known as Laser Genesis is a popular and effective treatment to restore your skins appearance. At Advanced Cosmetic Medicine we use the state of the art Excel V Laser from Cutera.
More than three quarters of rosacea patients report low self-esteem – which lends importance to proper identification and treatment because of its affects on both mental and emotional well-being. The good news for our Advanced Cosmetic Medicine patients is that the Laser Genesis treatment is clinically proven to diminish the appearance of fine lines and redness to help promote clear and vibrant skin. Laser Genesis also creates a more even skin complexion and reduces size of pores.
How it works
The Laser Genesis treatment utilises safe, non-invasive laser technology to reduce fine lines, diffuse redness and scars. It employs a microsecond 1064nm wavelength of laser energy to gently heat the upper dermis, stimulating collagen regrowth to reduce fine lines and coagulating dilated capillaries to reduce redness, without unwanted downtime.
What to expect
Laser Genesis treatments are comfortable and allow you to return to almost all regular activities. Immediately following the procedure, skin may appear flushed. Results are often subtle. Multiple treatments or ongoing maintenance treatments may be recommended for optimal outcomes or to manage rosacea long term.
Regardless of the season, Laser Genesis treatments are proven to be safe and effective. Considered the gold standard in rosacea treatments, Laser Genesis is specifically suited to help you control and manage diffuse redness.
How many treatments will I need?
On average, patients require 4-6 treatments to see maximum results. Every patient’s needs vary. Our certified laser specialist will recommend a treatment plan specifically for you and your needs.
Benefits of Laser Facial Rejuvenation
Laser genesis can also be used to treat skin discolouration from broken capillaries. The heat produced and stored in your dermis during treatment breaks down damaged capillaries and dissipates trapped blood and redness beneath the skin’s surface.
Unlike other laser treatments, laser genesis is described as non-ablative, meaning it does not affect the surface of the skin but instead penetrates deep into the dermis’ deepest layers. This minimises any damage done by the extreme thermal temperatures and prevents scaring and skin damage. After treatment not only are pores smaller, but the skin feels and appears tighter overall.
Fine lines may also appear less noticeable and skin looks more firm. The benefits of laser genesis can be greatly enhanced and prolonged by proper post-care after the treatment. Consuming plenty of water in the days following the treatment, as well protecting the skin from the sun by covering up with protective clothing layers or sunscreen can heighten visible benefits from the procedure.
When will I see results?
You will slowly start to see results 3-9 weeks after your first treatment because we are repairing cells deep in the middle layer of the skin. Once these cells start to come to the surface, you will see improvements in texture, redness, scarring and fine lines.
This is a cumulative treatment which means that your specific condition will continue to improve more and more with each treatment.
