Laser Skin Treatments
Laser skin treatments can reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. The use of lasers for skin resurfacing involves the use of short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer. Genesis Medspa offers a variety of laser skin treatments described below.
Ultherapy is one of the finest non-surgical, non-invasive therapies to lift and tighten your face, neck, chin, and décolletage. This FDA-approved treatment focuses ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production in the deepest layer of tissue. Ultherapy is perfect for those who don’t want to get more invasive treatments like Botox or facelifts via plastic surgery. The best results are found in the problem areas around the neck, chin or around the eyes, with results for the rest of the face coming after a few treatments.
Ultherapy does not cause your skin to become overly sensitive, so you can get treatments all summer long.
Jennifer Aniston admitted that she likes Ultherapy, reports E! Online. The 45-year-old spoke of not being a big fan of Botox or bad plastic surgery. According to a review in “Elle Magazine”, if your skin is sagging, “Ultherapy ‘resets the clock without surgery’; it’s the Holy Grail.”
Looking for a “lunchtime laser” treatment? The Titan laser is an infrared light laser that goes to the dermis and triggers the production of collagen to renew and repair the skin.” Titan works well on people with jowls and best for patients with loose skin.
Titan can tighten your skin and make it less blotchy. With a little make-up you can be right back on your way. One to three treatments are recommended. Results can be seen immediately after the treatment, but the final optimal results are gradual over a 2-6 month period as the new collagen is formed and skin continues to tighten. No downtime or pain medication is required. This is a non-ablative, non-surgical lifting procedure that causes the collagen in the dermis to contract and tighten.
The Titan laser received positive reviews on both “Oprah” and “The View” TV shows.
Limelight Laser (IPL)
IPL (Limelight) is a non-invasive laser that is customizable for different skin types. IPL systems work on the same principles as lasers in that light energy is absorbed into particular target cells with color (chromophores) in the skin. As opposed to a focused laser, the light is scattered and is used to treat small veins, redness, and discoloration caused by aging or sun damage.
When the pulses of light are applied to the skin, you will feel tingling, sometimes a sharp snapping sensation. There are pre- and post-treatment creams that we recommend to ease any discomfort and discoloration. In general patients have a series of three to six treatments, approximately one month apart.
Marie Claire magazine says that IPL smooths the complexion with no downtime or discomfort. Pop superstar Madonna receives IPL, along with Actress Denise Richards, who was photographed getting her own IPL treatment.
Laser Genesis is delivered on the Heal (machine) by Cutera. It’s a noninvasive laser treatment designed to target fine lines, acne scars, large pores, and uneven skin tone by heating the upper dermis of your skin, which accelerates collagen regrowth. It is also FDA approved for treating rosacea.
Laser Genesis targets any inflammation in your skin and calms your skin down. There is no downtime. The laser gently heats the skin, addressing the deeper layers and shrinks the microvasculature. It also increases collagen production, minimizes fine lines and pores, treats acne, and evens out skin tone. The wavelength is longer and the intensity lower, than a traditional laser, making it Laser Genesis less painful with less downtime.
Laser Genesis is part of a 3D Rejuvenation approach to refreshing and revitalizing the skin. The three treatments include the LimeLight IPL and the Cutera Titan Skin Tightening procedures. With this 3-pronged approach applied on a scheduled basis, you can expect outstanding results.
Laser Vein Removal
Laser treatments are a great option if you’d like to get rid of your spider veins, especially if you have “deep blue veins”. If you have visible veins on your legs, thighs or face that have a branching or weblike pattern, lasers can help you conceal their appearance. Varicose veins cannot be treated.
The painless, non-invasive sends pulse light waves into a vein, causing the vessel to collapse. There are virtually no side effects (except an occasional light bruising and tenderness) and no downtime. Multiple treatments may be needed depending on the severity of your spider veins. Lasers get a higher than 90% satisfaction rating on “RealSelf”, and are highly recommended for the treatment of small vessels and broken capillaries on the face.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal reduces hair that is in an active growth cycle. Hair must have some pigment, so blonde and gray hair will not respond to treatment. A series of 5 treatments is recommended although more sessions may be necessary. Safe for all skin types.
