Genesis is always performed by a physician.
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of the skin’s surface, similar to lying in the sun.
Genesis is completely safe when performed by our trained medical professionals.
You will experience a gentle warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure as the hand piece is moved back and forth about a half inch above your skin.
You will begin noticing results 3 months after treatment. Individual results are subtle, however when done in a series the effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
Because results of this treatment are cumulative, we recommend 4 to 6 treatments, once every two weeks, to achieve optimal results.
A perk of Genesis is that results continue to accumulate after each treatment. The accelerated collagen production peaks at about 12 weeks after your last treatment. Because the natural aging process continues, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly how long results will last, but benefits can be seen for several years. Sun protection and attention to skin care are necessary to maintain optimal results.
No. You can immediately return to normal activities, but may notice a slight pink skin tone for up to 2 hours after procedure.

Laser Genesis is safe for all skin types. Those with redness, broken capillaries, large pores, fine wrinkles, discoloration, and uneven texture should consider this treatment.

A Genesis treatment uses a safe, non-invasive 1064 Nd Yag laser to gently heat the upper dermis below your skin’s surface. Heating the dermis causes a reaction that puts your collagen production into gear and consequently helps to diminish pores, fine lines and the appearance of scars. The heat also penetrates dilated capillaries and reduces redness.
