What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a type of skincare procedure that treats a variety of skin issues such as:
- Acne scarring
- Skin laxity
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Age spots or liver spots
- Sun damage
- Other signs of aging
- Unwanted pigmentation
- Uneven texture and tone
It works by generating new collagen growth within the skin. Laser resurfacing can also be used as a preventative measure to reduce signs of aging and help keep the skin plump, firm, and healthy!
Ablative vs. non-ablative
There are two general categories when it comes to laser skin resurfacing. Let’s take a closer look at each of them before we dive into the best laser treatment in Carmel.
Ablative lasers use heat to create tiny micro wounds on the outermost layers of the skin, signaling to the skin cells that it’s time to start regenerating collagen and elastin. The hyper-production of these cells makes our skin smooth, firm, and young-looking!
Think of ablative lasers like working out. When you go to the gym, what you’re actually doing is creating little tears in your muscles. As the muscle heals, it promotes new growth, which improves your muscle’s strength and health! The exact same principles apply to ablative laser treatments.
Non-ablative, or non-wounding, lasers provide similar benefits to their ablative counterpart. They use heat and light to stimulate collagen growth which, over time, can smooth wrinkles, help heal scars, and promote firm and healthy skin. Non-ablative lasers are less intense than ablative lasers, and require less downtime. However, they often require multiple sessions to see desired results.
What is the Laser Genesis
Laser Genesis is a type of non-ablative laser skin resurfacing. This non-invasive treatment works by gently heating the dermal layer of skin. The heat energy induces collagen production in the layers of the skin which keeps the skin firm, plump, and smooth. The heat energy also works to constrict blood vessels, effectively tackling redness and rosacea.
Ideal candidate for Laser Genesis
The Laser Genesis is one of the best laser treatments in Carmel for many reasons, including that its gentle nature makes it accessible for virtually anyone! This treatment is a great option for first time patients.
An ideal patient will be in good health and may present mild to moderate signs of aging, or none at all. A younger demographic can enjoy the benefits of this laser in a preventative capacity, and those with more severe signs of aging can benefit from this treatment by gaining a more youthful complexion!
What does it treat?
Laser Genesis works best to tackle:
- Acne scarring
- Uneven texture and tone
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Step 1. Consultation
We begin all of our aesthetic procedures with a one-on-one consultation. This is one of our favorite parts, as it allows us to truly get to know you, your aesthetic concerns, and desired results. Together, we can customize a treatment plan uniquely qualified to address your skin’s needs.
During the consultation, we will go over the details of the procedure, as well as expected results and anticipated downtime. We will also address the need for any follow up procedures.
Step 2. Treatment
You’ll be shown to one of our comfortable, clean treatment rooms. This particular treatment is super fast; typically under 30 minutes! During a laser treatment, we will provide you with protective eyewear. However, you’re free to chat with your aesthetician, or simply lay back and relax.
Step 3. Follow up
For optimal Laser Genesis results, we recommend booking follow up appointments to maintain your results.
As with other laser treatments, results are greatly influenced by your lifestyle, sun exposure, diet, and the use of effective skincare products. We will help you create a personalized skincare regimen and maintenance plan to take home. This will allow you to enjoy your results for as long as possible.
Commonly asked questions about the Laser Genesis treatment
Is there any downtime involved?
Nope! There is absolutely no downtime involved with a Laser Genesis treatment, and it requires no limitations to sun exposure.
How many sessions will I need to undergo?
Most of our patients see optimal results after a series of 6 treatments, which we recommend you schedule 2 to 4 weeks apart.
Is this treatment safe for those with dark skin tones?
One of the reasons Laser Genesis is the best laser treatment in Carmel is that it is safe for all skin tones and skin types! It does not work by targeting pigmentation, so it is safe for dark skin tones!
How does Laser Genesis treat rosacea?
The laser genesis is an awesome rosacea treatment because the heat works to constrict the blood vessels. This reduces redness and rosacea!
Does the Laser Genesis treatment hurt?
There is very little to no discomfort for patients treated with Laser Genesis. Most people find this treatment to be relaxing, and some have reported it feels like sitting next to a warm campfire.
How long does a procedure take?
This treatment is often called the “lunch time treatment” because it typically takes less than 30 minutes.
Paired procedures and products
One of the benefits of working with Phases Skin Care & Laser Center is that we can customize treatment plans that include multiple procedures. Here are a few treatments complementary to the Laser Genesis.
Another one of our favorite laser treatments here at Phases Skin Care & Laser Center is the BBL HERO. This treatment works in a similar fashion to the Laser Genesis, but this particular technology targets sagging skin. Using the BBL HERO as a complimentary procedure would leave you with firmer, tighter skin with reduced wrinkling and unwanted pigmentation.
If you’re ready to venture into the world of our sister business, Botox is the perfect entry! Dr. Turkle also heads a plastic surgery and injection center in the same building as Phases! Turkle & Associates is a Diamond Level Botox Cosmetic Provider! This designation recognizes our knowledge and vast experience in providing BOTOX® Cosmetic. It is also a certification that we are in the top .5% of all physician practices in the United States that administer BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Botox pairs incredibly well with Laser Genesis, as it not only smooths out existing wrinkles, but works as a preventative measure to stop wrinkles from forming. With Botox and Laser Genesis, you can achieve the youthful complexion of your dreams for years to come!
Medical-grade skincare products
A major key in the success of laser skin resurfacing is skin care following the treatment. One way to maintain the results of your treatments is to make the switch to medical-grade skincare products.
Unlike over-the-counter (OTC), medical-grade skincare products are specially formulated and FDA-approved to heal, cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin. Replacing a few of your OTC products with medical grade versions will help keep your skin fresh, healthy, and glowing!
At your initial consultation, we’ll discuss a personalized skincare regimen for you to follow after your laser treatment.
