One part laser, one part facial.
Our most advanced laser rejuvenation treatment is a safe and gentle option that treats a variety of skin conditions.
What is a Laser Genesis treatment?
The Cutera Laser Genesis is a safe and effective laser treatment, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin re-growth. Micro-pulses of light safely heat the upper dermis below your skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of fine lines, visible pores, scarring and evens skin tone.
At The Skin Boutique, we perform an Aspect Fruit Enzyme Peel that gently exfoliates and dissolves dead skin build-up to allow the laser to penetrate and treat more effectively. Post-treatment, a Société Gel Peptide Mask is applied to soothe and hydrate.
For enhanced results, speak to your Specialist to see if adding an Aspect 20% Lactic Peel is suitable.
How many Laser Genesis treatments will I need?
Although you will see immediate benefits from a single treatment, The Skin Boutique recommends 6 sessions spaced every 2-3 weeks apart for best results.
What skin conditions does the Laser Genesis treat?
- reduces redness
- evens skin tone
- softens fine lines and wrinkles
- smoothens scars
- reduces pore size
- promotes collagen and elastin production
What are the possible side effects of Laser Genesis?
The Laser Genesis treatment is popularly known as a ‘lunch-time’ facial, because it’s considered a minimally invasive treatment. Clients can return to work and resume most normal activities immediately post-treatment. There may be a slight redness that should disappear within a few hours of treatment.
What kind of improvements can I expect with Laser Genesis?
Over the course of 3 to 6 treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a more youthful, healthy complexion emerge as large pores are reduced in size, and redness diffused. Although individual treatment results are subtle, the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
What areas can be treated with Laser Genesis?
Any part of the body can be treated, but the most commonly area is the face. The Skin Boutique offers packages when grouping multiple areas together, such as the face, neck and décolletage. A popular body area to treat tends to be the back of the hands due to their exposure to sun and the Genesis’s rejuvenative ability.
Scars on the body can also benefit from treatment, however, we do recommend for best results to consider Skin Needling the scar prior to commencing a course of Laser Genesis courses.
Can the Laser Genesis help with diffused redness?
Diffused redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness and/or flushing. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffused redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. Laser Genesis can help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.
What does the Laser Genesis procedure feel like?
Most people find the Laser Genesis to be a relaxing experience and is even popularly referred to as a lunch-time facial. At The Skin Boutique, we refer to this treatment as our laser facial as it feels more like a facial than an intense laser treatment. As it gently warms the skin there is no discomfort and there is little to no downtime with instant results that you can see and feel. You can expect to return to your daily activities as normal after the treatment.
The Laser Genesis treatment effectively treats many skin conditions but for best results a course of 3-6 treatments are recommended.
