At Timeless Laser & Skin Care in Westlake, OH, we’re proud to offer this safe and effective treatment for achieving beautiful skin.
What Is Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation?
Though aging is a natural process, it comes with some tell-tale signs that may leave you feeling less than confident in your appearance. Sagging skin, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone are just some of the effects of aging you may begin to experience. Many try to remedy the signs of aging with topical solutions, such as creams and toners. If you’re wanting to make a greater impact on your skin, a professional touch is required. That’s where Laser Genesis comes in. Performed by our team of highly-trained professionals, this laser treatment can completely rejuvenate the appearance of your skin.
How Does It Work?
During a laser skin rejuvenation treatment session, a laser will be directed to the targeted treatment area, gently heating the skin. The heat from the laser will stimulate and increase the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen helps the skin by increasing fullness and smoothness, which works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What Is Collagen?
While there are many factors that contribute to the appearance of healthy skin, one of the most important factors is the presence of collagen. Collagen is produced naturally by the body. This protein ensures that your skin, muscles, and other tissues maintain their structural integrity.
As we age, our bodies begin to reduce the production of collagen. This is why wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin develop as you age. The loss of collagen, in addition to other details such as sun exposure, diet, and genetics, all play a role in your skin’s appearance. Dark spots, redness, and uneven textures are some of the changes to your skin’s appearance that can result from these factors over time.
What Does It Treat?
This non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment uses the power of lasers to enhance the appearance of aging skin, including uneven skin tone, redness, and dark spots. Additionally, these treatments can help to rebuild structural integrity in your skin. Though fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging are the top skin concerns that we target using this laser skin rejuvenation treatment, it can also help resolve other skin issues, such as broken capillaries, rosacea, or scarring due to acne or injury.
While this treatment is primarily used to target the face, it can be used effectively on other areas of the body as well. For example, the neck area can be targeted through this treatment in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or sagging skin. Additionally, the shoulders, decolletage, and hands can all be rejuvenated, smoothed, and made more youthful by this laser treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation?
While this laser treatment may be appealing to many, there are certain candidates who may benefit from this treatment more than others.
Those Looking for a Non-Invasive Option
Although surgical options are highly effective for reducing wrinkles and aging skin concerns, they come with many drawbacks. Surgery requires a great deal of recovery time, for example. Not to mention, undergoing an invasive skin procedure can be uncomfortable at best – and, more often, downright painful. If length recovery times or painful procedures don’t sound appealing to you, laser skin rejuvenation is a completely non-invasive alternative.
Our laser technology is non-invasive and simply delivers heat to the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production. There are no lengthy recovery times necessary and no discomfort or pain during or after your appointment.
Those Looking for a Low-Risk Option
While many treatment options offer amazing results, they can sometimes come with risks. Surgical procedures in particular can pose many risks to those who choose to undergo them. Alternatively, this laser treatment poses no health risks whatsoever.
Because this treatment is non-invasive, it’s very safe and low-risk. This laser genesis treatment is a non-ablative laser treatment, so it won’t cause damage, such as hyperpigmentation, to the surface of your skin. This means it’s even safe for those with darker complexions. This laser treatment will simply encourage your body to produce more skin-healthy collagen, providing you with a safe, low-risk solution for restoring your youthful looks naturally.
Those with Busy Schedules
Some cosmetic treatments can take a lot of time from your day. However, one of the many benefits of this laser treatment is how fast and effective the process is. A typical appointment takes just half an hour to complete. Once your treatment has been finished, you’ll be able to return to your daily routine. This means you can book a laser rejuvenation appointment during your lunch hour and make it back to the office in time for your afternoon staff meeting.
Those With Treatment-Resistant Skin Tones
Some types of skin treatments and procedures can be risky or damaging for certain skin tones. This laser treatment works with all types of skin, in all tones. From pale to dark, all skin tones can attain stunning results through this laser treatment. Even those who have skin that is typically prone to inflammation can comfortably and safely receive this treatment. If you’re not sure if this treatment will be suitable for your skin type, we’d be happy to recommend a specific treatment plan to accommodate your unique skin concerns and aesthetic goals.
Those Looking for Long-Lasting Results
Many treatment options will claim to provide visible, long-lasting results. However, this is not always the full truth. With this laser treatment, you can expect stunning, scientifically-proven results. Whether you’re looking to treat signs of aging such as wrinkles, or other skin concerns such as dark spots, scarring, or rosacea, ths laser treatment offers high quality, long-lasting results.
What To Expect at Your First Appointment
When you enter our clinic for your first appointment, you’ll be welcomed by our team of highly-trained technicians. We’ll be sure to discuss with you your expectations and goals before we begin treatment. Once we’ve agreed on the best course of action to meet your aesthetic goals, we’ll prepare the treatment area. We’ll begin by cleansing your skin thoroughly to ensure the surface is clear and free of any bacteria or free radicals. A topical anesthetic is not generally required, as this treatment is non-ablative and non-invasive.
You’ll be given protective eyewear to wear during your appointment; once your eyes are protected, we’ll begin to apply the laser to the treatment areas. You may experience a tingly feeling or heat in the targeted area while the laser is being applied to your skin. After we’ve completed the treatment, we’ll apply a moisturizer to the treatment area. This will help your skin to stay hydrated after exposure to the laser.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
With this highly-effective laser treatment, you’ll begin to see changes to your skin very quickly. After just one session, you’ll already start to notice visible results. For optimal results, we recommend completing a series of sessions, spaced a few weeks apart. Our candidates are happiest with their results after receiving 4 to 6 treatments.
Does This Treatment Require Downtime?
This laser treatment doesn’t require any extra downtime; however, we do recommend you follow some simple care tips after you’ve completed your treatment to optimize your results. When your appointment has concluded, you may experience some slight swelling or redness; this is completely normal and shouldn’t be a cause for concern. You can mitigate any redness following your appointment by using makeup, if you’d like. However, it’s important to avoid active ingredients, such as retinol, for the next 24 hours following your treatment.
While you can resume working after your treatment, strenuous activities should be avoided. Additionally, it’s important to minimize sun exposure and ensure you’re applying sunscreen and moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and protected from sun damage.
