Laser Genesis Columbia MD Q&A

Laser Genesis stimulates collagen growth by gently heating the existing collagen in the upper dermis of the skin. It also generates heat within the tiny blood vessels in the skin. This helps to reduce redness. Laser Genesis skin therapy can reverse signs of aging and sun damage, such as redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine line wrinkles. While the individual treatment results may be subtle, the overall effect of multiple treatments is striking.

What can I expect before Laser Genesis treatment?

You will not need any gel or anesthetic cream prior to treatment. Firstly, you will need to remove your make-up or moisturizers. To ensure the safest results, we recommend not using topical medications like Retin-A, retinols or similar products for 1 week before your appointment.

What areas can be treated with Laser Genesis?

Most people choose to perform Laser Genesis on the face and the neck. However, it is effective on other parts of the body as well.

What does the procedure feel like?

The Laser Genesis procedure is soothing and relaxing. There will be a gentle warm sensation of the skin as our laser expert waves the handpiece ½ inch above your skin.

What are the possible side effects?

The most common side effect is a mild redness of the skin, that usually disappears within a few hours. Other more serious risks are burning and discoloration of the skin. To prevent these side effects, you should be sure to see a board-certified dermatologist with expertise in the use of lasers in all skin types.

Should I consider any other laser procedures?

It depends on the needs of your skin. There are many other procedures that can help refresh your skin. They either stimulate collagen or increase skin cell turnover. These procedures include:

  • Chemical peels
  • Laser Photofacial
  • RF-Microneedling
