Laser Skin Tightening Treatment Overview

Laser Genesis Skin Tightening Treatment Benefits

Laser Genesis skin tightening is an innovative technology that uses a very stable neodymium-yag (Nd:YAG) laser to allow multiple pulses per second at a high energy level. The treatment feels like a warm heat sensation on the skin. The heat generated in the deep layers of the skin stimulates collagen production to tighten the skin and shrink oil glands and pores. In general, 4 sessions are recommended, in intervals of 4 weeks. After the 4 treatments, many patients opt to do Laser Genesis once a season to keep the skin tight, and continually stimulate collagen production.

It is a non-invasive, quick, and painless procedure. The skin is not damaged. In fact, it will produce an immediate effect of a youthful glow. Since the laser targets the deep layers of the skin it is safe for all skin types.

Laser Skin Tightening Results

Laser Genesis Skin Tightening Solution is a remarkable non-invasive procedure designed to rejuvenate and enhance your skin’s appearance. This innovative technology initiates a transformative process that becomes evident as early as three weeks following the treatment. However, the real magic lies in the ongoing benefits that unfold gradually over the course of the next 9 to 12 months after the treatment concludes.

At its core, Laser Genesis triggers a remarkable boost in collagen production, a vital protein responsible for maintaining the skin’s elasticity and youthful firmness. This collagen synthesis, set in motion during the treatment, continues to work its wonders long after the session has ended. This extended timeframe allows the skin to progressively tighten, smoothen, and improve in texture, yielding a radiant and revitalized complexion that exudes a natural, youthful glow.

Laser Skin Tightening Procedure

During the procedure, the specialized Laser Genesis Skin Tightening handpiece is placed over the skin surface. It applies gentle heat to the dermis and stimulates the return of depleted collagen. Unlike radiofrequency skin tightening, Laser Genesis Skin Tightening does not have the potential to damage the underlying fat structures in your face.

Before the procedure – In preparation for your treatment, you are required to discontinue the use of any active acids (ie. Glycolic, Salicylic, Retinols etc.) for a minimum of 3 days pre-treatment. It is also required that you avoid direct sun exposure and limit tanning for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your laser treatment. 

During the procedure – Laser Genesis Skin Tightening sessions usually last 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size and surface to be treated. You will feel a warm sensation on the skin and the treatment is painless.

After the procedure – Your skin will have a healthy glow and possibly some mild redness (which will subside within a few hours). It is required that you avoid using any active acids (ie. Glycolic, Salicylic, Retinols etc.) for a minimum of 3 days post treatment. Avoid direct sun exposure and protect your treated skin by applying SPF daily.
