How to Tell If Laser Genesis Is Right for You
Dr. Daniel J. Leeman offers Laser Genesis at our Austin, Texas practice for clients looking for a non-invasive treatment to restore skin tone and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, acne, oversized pores, or other skin imperfections. Done using a heat-based laser, Laser Genesis stimulates the body’s natural healing process, increasing collagen production to reduce signs of aging and leave you with a younger skin tone and texture.
Specializing in treating the effects of rosacea and acne scars, Laser Genesis is performed using a non-ablative laser that uses heat to kill bacteria on the skin and hiding under it. This not only clears up acne, but it also helps to prevent future acne by cleaning the deeper layers of skin in a way that topical cleaners can’t reach. The effects of the laser stimulate lasting collagen growth, shrinking pores and increasing the rate of new skin cell growth.
Laser Genesis is an outpatient cosmetic procedure performed at our offices in Austin, and each treatment takes about thirty minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. You will be free to return home or to work immediately with no ill effects. The treatment is renewable and can be done as often as you and your doctor feel is necessary.
What to Expect Before Laser Genesis
If you’re considering Laser Genesis, the first step is to schedule a primary consultation with Dr. Leeman or one of our qualified providers. They will examine your face, discuss the symptoms you want treated, and discuss with you what effects you can expect from your initial treatment.
Laser Genesis is suitable for treating all skin types and Fitzpatrick levels and is suitable for treating skin areas on the face and around the body. Ideal patients should be in overall good health and not have any open wounds or infections on the face.
Before your first treatment, you will be briefed on how to prepare. This is an outpatient procedure with no anesthesia and no special preparation is needed. You will be advised to wash your face thoroughly and get a good night’s sleep before your appointment.
What to Expect During and After Laser Genesis
At your initial Laser Genesis treatment, Dr. Leeman will use a laser to heat the targeted areas of your skin. This will kill bacteria on and under the skin, cleaning your pores and preventing acne outbreaks from recurring. The procedure is painless although you will feel a strong warm sensation on your skin during treatment.
Following your treatment, you may notice a slight redness on the skin. This will be painless and should pass after several hours. You will be free to return to work or resume normal activities immediately after your treatment, which should be less than an hour and perfect for a lunch break. Laser Genesis works best with multiple treatments–three as a minimum spaced at least four weeks apart. Your doctor will work out a schedule after your first treatment.
