Laser Genesis

Your skin is adept at healing itself. It’s constantly shedding old cells and producing new collagen to repair damage and maintain a strong foundation. However, our bodies produce less collagen with age, making preserving elasticity and a smooth complexion harder, especially when sun damage accelerates signs of aging.

Laser Genesis is a revolutionary laser treatment that stimulates the skin’s natural process to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage, promoting a vibrant, healthy-looking complexion. Micro-pulses of laser energy activate collagen remodeling to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and target unwanted brown spots and facial redness. Laser Genesis is an ideal treatment for the face, neck, and other body areas with noticeable signs of aging, sun damage, or scarring.

Skin rejuvenation treatments like Laser Genesis increase collagen production to help reduce signs of aging since collagen keeps the skin firm and smooth. Laser Genesis can also target pigmentation concerns, including redness and dark spots. This gentle laser treatment is ideal for most people with mild to moderate signs of aging and sun damage. Unlike many alternative lasers, Laser Genesis is safe for all skin types and tones in the hands of an experienced provider.

During a detailed consultation at Rapaport Plastic Surgery, one of our experts will assess your condition and goals to create a customized treatment plan. While Laser Genesis is safe for almost everyone, patients with significant signs of aging or those who want more dramatic results may be better suited for an alternative like Dr. Rapaport’s Trifecta Non-Invasive Facelift.

Laser Genesis’ nonablative technology delivers micro pulses at a wavelength of 1064nm. These fast, short bursts of energy don’t damage the skin’s surface. Instead, it gently heats the deeper layers to trigger a healing response and increase collagen production.

While many patients enjoy the benefits of Laser Genesis alone, we often incorporate this gentle laser into a comprehensive treatment plan with other procedures. Laser Genesis can help boost or maintain the results of your other rejuvenation treatments by optimizing healing and repair. It often pairs well with microneedling or skin resurfacing. Part of our approach at Rapaport Plastic Surgery is taking the time for a thorough consultation so we can create a personalized treatment plan for each patient.

One of the things patients love most about Laser Genesis is its ease and convenience. During treatment, you will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface, which patients often describe as relaxing and therapeutic. A Laser Genesis session typically takes just 30 minutes. 

Since there’s no downtime and little to no side effects, Laser Genesis is a lunch break procedure that’s easy to fit into a busy schedule. Keep in mind that if your laser treatment is combined with other modalities, such as a chemical peel or resurfacing, the appointment may take longer, and there may be some recovery time.

Patients may notice some mild redness and swelling after the laser treatment. You can apply makeup immediately if necessary; any inflammation typically fades within a day. There’s no downtime after Laser Genesis. You can resume your daily routine immediately, though avoiding strenuous exercise and heat can help minimize swelling. You should also keep your skin hydrated and take a break from harsh skincare products for a few days.

Laser Genesis does not come with the itching, peeling, and discomfort that’s associated with many lasers. However, your skin will be extra sensitive, so be sure to wear sunscreen and limit sun exposure.

Although the individual treatment results are subtle, the overall effect of a treatment series can be quite dramatic. Four to six Laser Genesis sessions are generally recommended to achieve an optimal outcome. Patients often enjoy a visibly brighter, clearer complexion with reduced discoloration, redness, and brown spots. The improved collagen production can also help minimize fine lines, wrinkles, and rough texture.

Your results will likely last around six months to a year. We often recommend one or two maintenance sessions a year to sustain results over time. Using high-quality skincare and protecting your skin from sun damage can also help preserve your smoother, brighter complexion.
