Laser Resurfacing: Laser Genesis and Limelight (IPL)

Laser Genesis

 

Laser Genesis is a resurfacing treatment for wrinkles, large pores, skin texture, diffuse redness, rosacea, poikiloderma (skin aging with pigmentation) and scars on the face or other body parts.

Laser Genesis helps restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance. You will see a healthier complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.

By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth about one-half inch above your skin. You can immediately return to normal activities, using sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.

Limelight (IPL Laser)

The Limelight laser targets pigmentation, skin redness, facial telangiectasias (tiny veins), rosacea, and sun damage on any part of your face, neck or décolletage (exposed chest). We can customize your Limelight facial treatment to your skin type and selectively treat the brown and/or red pigmented areas on your skin.

When the pulse of light is delivered, you will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. One to three treatments are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be recommended, especially for excessively sun-damaged skin. Most treatments take less than one hour.

Immediately following treatment, your brown spots will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours to a couple of days. Makeup can be applied to cover the redness. Within one to three weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade. Diffuse redness or tiny veins will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
