HOW CAN LASER GENESIS OR IPL PHOTOFACIALS IMPROVE THE CONDITION OF MY SKIN?
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser cosmetic treatment utilized to help create more uniform skin tone, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lighten unwanted brown spots, reduce facial redness, and improve surgical or acne scarring. It is a complexion-enhancing treatment. A series of 4 to 6 monthly Laser Genesis treatments is advised for best results. The best part is there is NO downtime!
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), sometimes referred to as broadband light (BBL) or photofacial, improves signs of sun damage including brown spots and visible capillaries on the skin. A series of 3 IPL treatments is recommended for complexion clarity.
HOW DO LASER GENESIS AND IPL PHOTOFACIALS WORK?
Laser Genesis is a treatment that utilizes laser heat to stimulate the skin’s natural processes – especially collagen growth – to reverse the signs of aging, inflammation, and sun damage, revealing a healthy complexion. Similarly, the collagen growth is also effective in reducing scarring.
IPL Photofacials are non-ablative by nature. They use a powerful light source, filtering various wavelengths of it to react with different layers of the skin depending on a patient’s condition.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER GENESIS OR AN IPL PHOTOFACIAL?
Laser Genesis and IPL Photofacials are recommended for healthy adults who want to be proactive in treating their skin or slowing down aging. We often call these treatments “laser facials” as they are an important part of a lifelong skin regimen. These treatments are effective for adult men and women of any age. It is a must to inform us if you have a history of herpes (cold sores or fever blisters) so that you can get the proper medication prophylaxis. We sometimes advise to avoid IPL photofacials and choose Laser Genesis if your skin tone is of a darker complexion or tanned so please ask for a personalized consultation.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING & AFTER THESE TREATMENTS?
Laser Genesis usually takes about a half hour to complete and you must wear protective eyewear during the procedure. Laser Genesis requires no downtime and no numbing is necessary. Post Laser Genesis instructions are found here.
IPL Photofacials usually take about a half hour to an hour after preparation time and you must wear protective eyewear during the procedure. The treatments will require topical numbing 30 minutes prior to treatment. Mild swelling and darkening/peeling of brown spots most often lasts 2 to 7 days.
It is best to be cleanly shaven if the area being treated has any hair. Please inform us if you have a history of herpes (cold sores or fever blisters) for either treatment. We do not treat if you have a suntan or sunburn.
