Laser Genesis treatments, also known as photofacial or IPL (intense pulsed light), are a type of “laser facial” that work to reduce redness, shrink pore size, smooth facial texture, and help acne breakouts and scaring. This skin treatment also works to stimulate collagen production, which enhances the elasticity of your skin over a period of several months.
Some common skin conditions that photo facials treat include:
- Age spots and sun spots
- Redness and small facial capillaries
- Uneven skin tone
- Dull complexion
- Fine lines
- Mild scarring
When you receive a photofacial, our laser technician will use a spectrum of filtered wavelengths against your skin to target specific conditions, such as discoloration, rosacea, or broken blood vessels. You will typically require several sessions to produce the best results. Sessions are usually fairly quick, and can even be performed in the middle of the workday!
You will not require any downtime to recover from your treatment. You may feel as if your skin is sunburned for several hours after your Laser Genesis treatment, but this feeling should fade within a day. After treatment, your brown spots will begin to fade and flake off. You can expect to see results from your treatment within a few weeks.
