Laser Genesis Q & A

What is the Cutera Laser Genesis?

The Cutera Laser Genesis is a laser treatment system that is safe to use on all skin tones. This innovative equipment can improve a variety of anti-aging conditions, including:

  • Uneven texture

  • Redness

  • Sun damage

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Enlarged pores

It’s also proven to be an effective treatment for rosacea and can stimulate collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure is quick and easy and requires no downtime.

What areas can Laser Genesis treat?

The aesthetician at Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics can use Laser Genesis on your face and neck to reduce the visible signs of aging. He can also treat sun damage on your arms or chest.

Typical treatment sessions take less than 30 minutes, and you can immediately return to your regular activities. Many patients at Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics have the procedure done during their lunch breaks and go back to work without issue.

To get optimal results, the team may recommend 4-6 treatment sessions. Depending on your condition, he may also suggest maintenance sessions.

How does Laser Genesis work?

Laser Genesis uses laser light to heat up cells deep within your skin. This stimulates those cells to produce more collagen, which naturally firms and strengthens the dermis. When you have more collagen, your skin tone evens, your pores shrink, and your skin’s texture improves.

Because of its state-of-art technology, Laser Genesis only targets specific cells, leaving the rest of your skin protected and unharmed.

During the procedure, you may feel a slight warmth, but the treatment doesn’t cause any discomfort and patients often call it relaxing.

Laser Genesis has few side effects; the most common include a slight reddening of the treatment area and minimal swelling. Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics recommends using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 after you’ve had the procedure.
