This laser is a non-ablative, non-invasive and a comfortable form of skin rejuvenation. By gently heating the upper dermis and targeting discolor in the skin, the appearance of acne scars and redness is reduced. Laser genesis is effective for both men and women. Results are more subtle at first, with the benefits from treatment increasing over time as the regenerated collagen helps beautiful, smooth skin to grow. Benefits continue to increase in intensity and the number of treatments received. The average patient receives four treatments for optimal results. The number of treatments needed is determined on a case-by-case basis, depending upon the skin’s growth cycle and also the size and spread of enlarged pores. No anesthetic is required during the treatment and very few side effects occur. Laser genesis usually takes less than an hour to perform, and irritation or side effects after the treatment are extremely minimal. Most patients are immediately able to return to their daily activities.
By gently heating the skin to around 45 degrees centigrade, the heat from the laser will have an exfoliating effect on the stratum corneum (the upper most layer of the epidermis, mostly made up of dead skin cells waiting to shed), removing around 25% of the dead corneocytes and stimulating around 25% more living skin cells.
Reduction of the stratum corneum means facial products are far more effective, and make-up and cosmetics will sit better on the skin and even last longer as the products are not having to work their way through the dead skin cells. The warmth from the laser will also stimulate cell renewal, so your new fresh skin will come through quicker, giving you a brighter, fresher and clearer complexion.
The Laser Genesis procedure utilises non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel. Laser Genesis is a non-evasive laser technology, which is a multi-purpose, all season, all skin type solution for overall skin health. With Laser Genesis providing such effective treatment for so many common skin complaints, its a great treatment which can be used almost all over the body. Cutera’s 1064 nm wavelength safely and gently heats the epidermis to promote collagen regrowth and cell renewal. This will cause your skin to tighten and reduce pore size, reduce redness, minimise fine wrinkles and improve skin tone and texture.

Laser Genesis is a laser facial. Popular for its cumulative effects, comfort level and wide range of benefits. Genesis is performed using Nd YAG laser technology at low energy with pulse settings that gradually build up heat to stimulate the lower layers of skin.
Laser Genesis brings the spring back to your skin by shrinking large pores, evening out skin tone and smoothing out fine lines. Clients with light acne scars benefit from the production of collagen that Genesis activates plumping the skin and reducing the appearance of scarring.
Laser Genesis Clinical time is around 45mins.
Booking a Laser Genesis treatment is around 1 hour.
Laser Genesis is performed with a Nd YAG laser. The same laser wavelength used to treat dark skin for laser hair removal. Because of the wavelength, Laser Genesis is safe for all skin types and ideal for light and medium skin tones. Laser Genesis applies repeating pulses of low energy that slowly heat layers of the skin. The slow and even increase in temperature make Laser Genesis very safe and comfortable. Laser Genesis is effective for treatment on the face, neck and décolleté and hands.
Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, this treatment can be used to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.
Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, not discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and it can be hereditary. Laser Genesis will help the appearance or rosacea by gently treating and reducing this condition.
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth about 1/2 inch above your skin. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilising sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
It’s important to avoid sun exposure 2 weeks before treatment and 1 week after. Your skin holds on to the heat for a day or two after the treatment. So make sure to be extra careful in the summer months and avoid strenuous exercise and steam rooms right before or after treatment. Be sure to wear sunscreen before and after treatment. Sunscreen use ensures you protect your investment!
Laser Genesis is a 45 minute treatment. There are no gels or numbing creams necessary. Your skin care specialist will cleanse your skin, place goggles on your eyes for protection, select your treatment settings and go to work. The laser energy feels warm and soothing just like sitting in the sun.
You will not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment. Before the actual Laser Genesis treatment, you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturisers and, in some cases, you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. Your practitioner will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.
The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult Orchard Skin Ckin.
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Consult your practitioner for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.
Over the course of four to six treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a more even, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
