Many different elements can take their toll on your skin’s appearance; from common skin conditions like acne or rosacea to the inevitable aging process that leads to lines and wrinkles. While there is not much you can do to prevent these conditions or halt the aging process, there are ways to reverse these blemishes and restore a flawless complexion without the need for invasive surgery or downtime. Regardless of the imperfections your skin is exhibiting, they can be treated at Eminence Medical Aesthetics using the ground-breaking Laser Genesis skin therapy treatment by Cutera.

What is Laser Genesis Skin Therapy?
Laser Genesis skin therapy, often referred to as “Hollywood’s secret weapon,” is an innovative and technologically-advanced way to promote healthy and vibrant-looking skin in men and women alike. This aesthetic treatment utilizes noninvasive laser technology to safely and effectively reduce fine lines and wrinkles, diffuse redness and discoloration, manage large pores, improve the appearance of uneven skin texture and scars and even remove warts. Laser Genesis has received countless celebrity endorsements and has been featured in several articles and well-known television shows such as Access Hollywood and Fox News, to name a few.
How Does Laser Genesis Work?
Laser Genesis works by sending a single wavelength of laser energy into the underlying layers of your skin. By gently heating the upper dermis, found just below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates new collagen production deep within the skin without harming your outer complexion. Collagen is a structural protein found in the skin that keeps it firm and smooth throughout your youth. As you get older, collagen levels deplete gradually, resulting in skin laxity and the development of lines and wrinkles over time. By triggering new collagen growth, Laser Genesis can effectively reduce the appearance of these aging concerns.
Over the course of your treatment plan, Laser Genesis also works to restore the youthful radiance of your skin by smoothing out uneven texture caused by sun damage, acne scars or aging symptoms. You will begin to see a healthier and restored complexion as large pores are reduced in size and imperfections are eliminated. While the results of your first Laser Genesis treatment may be subtle, the cumulative effects of multiple treatments can lead to dramatic skin enhancements.

What are the Benefits of Laser Genesis Skin Therapy?
There are many reasons to consider nonsurgical laser skin therapy to refresh your appearance and treat common skin conditions, such as:
- No anesthesia, incisions or downtime necessary
- Quick, comfortable and convenient treatments
- Addresses a multitude of concerns in one procedure
- Treatment targets underlying layers of the skin for natural rejuvenation results
- Offers transformative results for conditions like rosacea and acne
- Treatments can be tailored to your unique concerns and aesthetic goals
- Can be used on the face, neck and chest
In addition to these benefits, Laser Genesis skin therapy is a non-ablative Nd:YAG laser; meaning it does not wound the skin and is safe for all skin types, tones and colors.
What Can I Expect From My Laser Genesis Treatment?
When you arrive for your Laser Genesis skin therapy appointment at Eminence Medical Aesthetics, you can expect a quick, comfortable and relaxing treatment session that takes just 30 minutes to complete. Your skin will first be cleansed to remove any makeup, oil or debris from your treatment areas, and specialized eyewear will be provided to protect your eyes from the laser. Your provider will move the treatment wand over your concerns in a continuous and repetitive motion for the duration of your treatment. While some patients report feeling sensations of warmth throughout the procedure, many find it to be a soothing treatment.
Since there is no anesthesia or incisions needed for this procedure, there is virtually zero downtime required afterward. You will be free to resume your busy day-to-day schedule or return to work without anyone knowing you had any work done. It is essential, however, that you take extra care to protect your treated skin from UV rays, as it will be especially vulnerable to sun damage for the first few days following your treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Each Laser Genesis treatment offers subtle enhancements to your skin’s appearance that become more evident over time. While every patient’s needs and goals differ, we typically recommend between four to six Laser Genesis treatments spaced four weeks apart for you to achieve your most optimal results. The number of treatments we will recommend for you will be determined during consultation and will be based on factors such as the severity of your symptoms as well as the aesthetic goals you hope to achieve.
What are the Potential Side Effects of Laser Genesis?
While a majority of our patients will report few, if any, side effects after their Laser Genesis skin therapy treatments, the most common side effects experienced include mild redness after their procedure. This redness will dissipate the same day as your procedure, usually after a few hours of your appointment. During your initial consultation at Eminence Medical Aesthetics, one of our medical providers will walk-through the complete details regarding the benefits and risks of this innovative treatment.
How Long Will My Laser Genesis Results Last?
While the elimination of scarring is often permanent, annual maintenance treatments are usually recommended for concerns such as redness and rosacea, broken blood vessels and fine lines and wrinkles. The longevity of your final results will vary from patient to patient and is determined by the extent of your skin damage as well as how well you care for your skin after your Laser Genesis skin therapy treatment. You can prolong the effects of your treatment by following a daily skin care regimen, applying sun protection regularly and avoiding tobacco and alcohol consumption.
If signs of aging or common skin conditions such as acne, scarring or rosacea are plaguing the appearance of your complexion, Laser Genesis skin therapy is a highly-effective and noninvasive treatment that can restore a glowing, youthful complexion without the need for surgery or downtime.
