A light-based IPL procedure which addresses problems right at the skin’s surface. The IPL system releases short pulses of filtered light that is readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within freckles, sunspots or liver spots.
Targeting: The Skin’s Surface
Micro second pulses of the Nd:YAG laser targets microvascular imperfections deep beneath the skin surface. By gently heating the skin to around 45 degrees centigrade, the heat from the laser will have an exfoliating effect on the stratum corneum removing around 25% of the dead corneocytes and stimulating around 25% more living skin cells. By gently heating the upper dermis well below the skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
Targeting: The Papillary Dermis

Each treatment regimen is different and customised to an individual clients’s needs. Most clients can expect between 2 and 6 treatments. Every client’s condition and needs vary. Individual treatment plan will be discussed at initial consultation.
Immediate results are observed by some patients. More typically, results will be seen in two to four weeks and improvements will continue for several months.
The most common is a slight redness that disappears within 60 minutes after treatment. In the next few days/weeks after your treatment, you will notice the pigmented lesions will begin to darken and create a micro-crust. Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and skin may appear slightly red. The treated area may be mildly swollen. This typically lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make-up can be applied to cover the redness.
