Laser Genesis Facial

An addictive relaxing laser and beauty treatment with no downtime.

The treatment is addictive as it’s relaxing, you look the same when you walk out, your skin gets an amazing glow and you know you are getting the long-term results from the collagen stimulation.

What is a Laser Genesis Facial?

Laser Genesis Facial is a non-invasive laser procedure, using laser for selective heating of the skin to increase the production of collagen and new skin cells, followed by a skin therapy treatment with topical products to optimize skin health.

Laser is used to produce precise little micro wounds and a targeted temperature under the skin’s surface, where it stimulates collagen to smooth and brighten the skin. The laser is then complimented with a skin therapy / facial to infuse products deep into the skin to tighten and brighten the complexion and improve the skin’s health.  The treatment is also great for background redness and tiny capillaries as the heat coagulates small vessels and reduced skin inflammation.

Who is it For?

Individuals of any age can benefit from laser genesis facial. The ideal client would start in their twenties when collagen reduction starts, but it can stimulate collagen at any age.
Laser Genesis Facial is well-suited for those with various skin types and conditions, including individuals with uneven skin texture, redness, large pores, and fine lines. It is also effective for those looking to improve overall skin tone and achieve a more youthful appearance. Whether you have sensitive skin, minor imperfections, or simply wish to rejuvenate your complexion, Laser Genesis facial offers a versatile option for addressing a wide array of skin concerns.

Benefits of Laser Genesis Facial

The treatment is addictive as it’s relaxing, you look the same when you walk out, your skin gets an amazing glow and you know you are getting the long-term results from the collagen stimulation.

It is great to prevent, maintain or rescue you from ageing by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin tone, background redness and general rejuvenation.

This treatment is great for those wanting a gentle treatment with no downtime and those happy to return regularly for ongoing treatments, knowing they have the benefit of long term tightening and rejuvenating results. The treatment is also great in preparation for an event, or in combination with a laser peel or chemical peel for extra surface polish.

Often this treatment is used in combination with our other vascular or pigmentation laser or facial treatments to give that added collagen boost.

What Does a Laser Genesis Facial Treatment Involve?

This relaxing treatment beings with the skin being cleaned. You will then be given some eye protection in the form of goggles or eye stickers. The laser will then be used to treat the areas of concern. The laser may use a cooling system too, to reduce discomfort. This blows cold area onto the surface layer of skin to cool it. The procedure is relatively comfortable and may feel like an elastic band flicking the skin at times.  A relaxing skin therapy session then commences using topical products to rejuvenate, hydrate and nourish the skin.

Laser Genesis Facial FAQ

What is a laser genesis facial?

Laser Genesis Facial is a non-invasive laser procedure, using laser for selective heating of the skin to increase the production of collagen and new skin cells, followed by a skin therapy treatment with topical products to optimize skin health. It can be referred to as a lunchtime laser due to its ease and low downtime. Its effect on the skin is very gentle, yet yields great results.

From mid-twenties our skin’s collagen production decreases. This results in thin, loose and wrinkly skin.  Laser genesis can help fight this collagen reduction, resulting in tighter, plumper skin and a more youthful appearance.

Laser genesis facial is usually performed on the face.

Who is a good candidate / what age should treatment start?

Individuals of any age can benefit from laser genesis facial. The ideal client would start in their twenties when collagen reduction starts, but it can stimulate collagen at any age with the aim to fight the 1% loss of collagen that occurs in your skin annually.

How many treatments are required?

Best results are seen from repeated ongoing treatments. We recommend about 4-6 treatments a year to really stimulate the skins collagen and get optimal results. Remember skin ageing is a continuum and collagen loss continues, so to maintain results collagen stimulating treatments need to be ongoing.

How long does the result last and when should it be repeated?

All results are permanent and results can continue to develop and improve for 6-12 months if you look after your skin and protect it from sun and pollutions. The skin will change according to your inner health, ageing and environmental exposures, or you may simply need more treatments to get your desired results. Skin ageing is a continuum, so treatments need to continue.

What treatments work well with this?

Laser is a great modality for general skin rejuvenation, smoothing and brightening. It also has the added benefits of a clearer, softer, more luminous and glowing skin. To optimize the treatments results, a home skincare regime will be recommended. LED treatments and facials can help the skin recover better after laser treatments. For better surface skin results you can complement the treatment with our laser or chemical peels. Dermal filler can be used for facial shape changes that occur with ageing and anti-wrinkle injections can be used to help reduce visible upper facial lines.
