So What exactly is Laser Genesis?-
Laser Genesis at Skin Nerd
The Excel V™ laser Genesis is a safe and effective laser treatment, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin regrowth in the skin. This can reduce the appearance of fine lines, visible pores, scarring and skin discolouration such as redness, capillaries and some pigmentation such as melasma.
Laser Genesis is a breakthrough laser treatment that targets the redness and capillaries in the skin. It also stimulates the skin’s natural processes to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage and promote a vibrant, healthy looking complexion.
How does it do this? Micro-pulses of laser energy activate collagen remodelling to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So what is the "collagen remodelling you take about?"... any heat based or physical trauma to the skin generates a response for healing with the dermal layers. The desire to heal subsequently creates our wonderful skin cells to re-develop and create brand new baby collagen protein! We LOVE it!
As we begin to age - our collagen fibres lower, this in return make us loose the volume within in our skin - beginning the process of laxity changes. By using gentle heat with ensure new protein cells are created each treatment - attempting to prevent further ageing. Bonus beyond the collagen synthesis is the improvements in colour and texture thanks to the experts at Cutera Laser Systems.
We love this treatment for regulating oil flow, revising enlarged pores, and reducing redness. The Laser Genesis Facial includes an exfoliation and LED Light Therapy. Is available as a mini service which includes the basics of skin health, or as mentioned above the full Skin Nerd love.
Is there any downtime with Laser Genesis?
The bonus of having this treatment is that there is minimal downtime (none at all really) - just a little mild skin flushing for 1-2 hours following your treatment. Although the skin is warm and slightly pink immediately after the facial, the redness will subside quickly. This small amount of redness is stimulation to the skin which in return = AMAZiNG SKIN RESULTS.
You can also apply mineral makeup immediately afterwards, perfect if you come for a lunchtime treatment and need to go back to work.
