Genesis V Skin Therapy
The Genesis V uses non-invasive laser technology to safely, naturally and effectively treat fine lines, overall redness and scars. By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, collagen is stimulated and redness is reduced. There is no downtime with this treatment and patients describe it as relaxing and therapeutic. This is the perfect “lunch time” procedure.

What areas can be treated?
Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, practitioners may suggest this therapy to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
What is diffuse redness?
Diffuse 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, not discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. Laser Genesis will help your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.
What does the procedure feel like?
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
How does Laser Genesis work?
The laser gently heats the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface and stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
What can I expect before the treatment?
You will not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment. You will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area being treated. Your physician will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.
How many treatments will I need?
An average of 3-5 treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results, although you will notice improvement after each session.
What are the possible side effects?
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Consult your physician for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.
