The procedure

Your treatment will take approximately 45-60 minutes, depending on the areas you wish to treat. Laser Genesis is both a suitable procedure to undergo to achieve an instant resurfacing glow as preparation for a special occasion, or predomantly undertaken as part of a series of treatments on a regular basis will see long term improvements in the appearance and health of your skin.

Laser Genesis is suitable for all skin types and Fitzpatrick levels for both Male and Females.

As the handheld laser device moves back and forth across the skin surface, it leaves a sensation of warm rain drops falling onto the skin as it heats the dermis below the surface.

Laser Genesis is a non-ablative Nd:YAG laser that uses heat to kill bacteria on and under the skin, preventing future acne outbreaks. The heat also penetrates deep enough into the skin, to stimulate the natural production of collagen, which shrinks pores, evens skin tones, and increases the speed of cell turn over, it is this process that allows Laser Genesis to help in the treatment of such a wide range of conditions.

Laser Genesis does require multiple treatments for optimal results, with a healthy minimum being three sessions, two or so weeks apart. Depending on the desired results, 4 – 12 treatments may be recommended as part of your treatment journey.

It is crucial that you follow your aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing and to achieve the best results following your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions will I need?

Laser Genesis can be experienced as a single treatment due to its instantaneous results. However, its full benefits will not be experienced unless patients undergo a series of treatments as part of their skin plan, which may include monthly sessions. Typically, 4-12 treatments may be required as part of your treatment plan.

At Aesthete Sunshine Coast we offer package deals of 4 treatments to be prepaid at a reduced price.

Laser Genesis is an amazing treatment which is a wonderful skin maintenance treatment suitable and equally effective for male and females.

How long will the results last?

The benefits of Laser Genesis will become increasingly noticeable after several treatments, with optimal results being seen around the six month period.  Laser Genesis can provide permanent results when being used to treat scars, but when treating pigment issues, such as rosacea, follow up treatments are recommended every 12 months.  Depending on how well protected from the sun and how consistent the home care regimen is, results can last longer than the intended 12 month period.

Does a Laser Genesis treatment hurt?

No, the treatment is comfortable and completely non-invasive, meaning patients do not experience any discomfort during their session. The sensation of the laser moving backward and forth across the skin is described by one of our patients, “It feels like tiny little warm elastic bands tapping your skin”.  Patients often say its very relaxing and almost additive.

When can I resume normal activities?

Often referred as a lunchtime facial, patients may return to their daily activities immediately after their treatment.  You may have some redness but this will fade quickly.

However, we recommend that individuals refrain from any direct sun exposure for 24 – 48 hours. Ensure you wear a high-SPF 30 or 50+ broad spectrum sunscreen for the next few days following your treatment.  Avoid activities that cause excess heat and sweating like exercise or a sauna session. And avoid using skin care products that contain active ingredients for 24 hours.
