Laser Genesis – Adelaide
Laser Genesis Using the Excel V+ Laser by Cutera
Are you looking to turn back the clock on your skin? Here at Advanced Cosmetic Medicine, we have the latest tools to make this a reality for any client.
When it comes to ageing, our skin is usually the first to suffer. Over the years, days spent in the sun without adequate sun protection can catch up to anyone in the form of premature ageing. This can be a combination of many things such as rosacea, fine lines and wrinkles, and stubborn pigmentation. This leads to millions of women splurging on expensive products to rectify their situation – and while good-quality skincare products help prevent any further premature ageing, when the damage has already been done it is time to look at laser treatments that are designed to fix the problem.
Here at ACM, we use the most recent technology in Laser Genesis by Cutera, to provide you with the best results you can find on the market – treating your skin to eliminate all of these signs of ageing more efficiently, precisely, and with more improved results than ever before.
So what is this machine and what does it actually do? The Excel V+ Laser works to improve overall skin tone and elasticity by stimulating collagen production – all without inconvenient downtime. Noticeable results include a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, oil production, sun damage, redness as well as the tightening of pores. One of the biggest developments of the Excel V+ Laser is that it has larger spot sizes compared to the previous Excel V Laser. What this means is that your practitioner can cover a much larger area of your skin without increased pain. This takes the previous treatment time from 15-20 minutes to just 3-5 minutes – great news for those of you who are stretched for time!
The only question left to ask now is – can anyone utilise this treatment? The answer you’ve been searching for is yes. The Excel V+ Laser is designed for every skin type, and Dr Targett will work with your unique skin to bring tailored results to individual client needs.

Get ready to say goodbye to the signs of ageing, and hello to youthful, rejuvenated skin!

What to Expect
You should arrive at your appointment ten minutes early to complete any required information and to obtain your informed consent for the treatment.
The treatment itself should take approximately 30 minutes.
You will be taken to the laser treatment room where you will lie down on a treatment bed. Men should be cleanly shaven before having this procedure. The aesthetician will then proceed to cleanse your face. Before the treatment begins you will be asked to wear some lead goggles to protect your eyes.
The treatment is very simple. The doctor or Laser Tech will use the Laser Genesis Handpiece and direct a red target light over your entire face. This is done in a methodical manner to achieve even heating throughout the face. Most patients describe the sensation as warm sunlight hitting their face. It is definitely not unbearable and most patients enjoy the warming sensation.
Immediately following the procedure, the skin may appear flushed but should dissipate after a few hours. Results are often subtle. Multiple treatments and ongoing maintenance treatments are recommended for best results.
How it works
How Does Laser Genesis Work?
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.
Laser Genesis is a non-ablative procedure, meaning it does not injure the surface of the skin, so you will not get any peeling.
The heat from the laser can kill bacteria deep within the skin, to help diminish acne as well as helping to prevent any new breakouts. The heat from the laser also causes micro-injuries within the skin which invokes the bodies own healing mechanisms to produce more collagen. The production of collagen can help to remodel scars, making them less noticeable, as well as improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Cosmetic injectables and plastic surgery alone cannot give you healthy radiant skin. To get the best and healthiest skin, you need to work at the subdermal levels using ND Yag 1064nm Laser Genesis to stimulate collagen and elastin. This will ultimately result in the best skin rejuvenation and also decelerate skin ageing.

Are there any risks or complications associated with Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is a safe and effective treatment with few risks or complications associated.

If patients have had adverse reactions in the past from laser treatments, they should disclose this to Dr Targett at their consultation.
What does Laser Genesis feel like? Is it painful?
Patients do not find the treatment painful, and most actually find it quite therapeutic and relaxing due to the gentle warmth radiating from the Excel V+ laser. At ACM, we ensure all our patients have a safe and comfortable experience with us.

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.
What areas can be treated?
Laser Genesis may be performed on the face, neck and chest. It can be used on any other part of the body to help reduce the appearance of scars.
How should I prepare for Laser Genesis?
deally you should arrive at your appointment without any makeup.
Men should also be cleanly shaved prior to the treatment.
Laser Genesis works best on white skin, but is suitable for all skin tones. It is best to avoid tanning beds and sun exposure for two weeks prior to treatment.
Also avoid Glycolic Acid and Retin A for one one week before your appointment.
What aftercare is required?
A cool pack may be applied to the face immediately after the treatment to reduce redness and swelling.
You may moisturize your skin after the first 48 hours
After your treatment you should stay well hydrated. Wear sunscreen when you go into the sun and avoid sun exposure as much as possible. This is important to help prevent the possibility of PIH (Post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation).
Avoid any skin irritants
Avoid injectable treatments two weeks before and after your treatment.
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.
