Laser Genesis for Beginners
There are many different types of treatments that people can use to get better, clearer skin or to remove wrinkles, redness and the other signs of aging. Many of these treatments may involve costly but ineffective creams or painful surgeries that can take weeks or months to heal from. Thankfully, there is a better solution called Laser Genesis and it can give great results for a wide variety of issues anywhere on the body, for any age and for any skin type.
What You Need to Know About Laser Genesis
As with any treatment involving the skin, the first and most important step is to be fully informed not only about the procedure but about the person that will be performing it. They are going to need to know how to laser genesis with precision and expertise or the results will not be as good.
There are other important things to know as well including:
- How it will feel. Will it be painful? Will you need sedation?
- How long will it take?
- Will I need recovery time after the procedure?
- What should I expect right after?
Laser genesis uses a specialized laser to send pulses directly to the deep layers of the skin. As it warms this layer of skin, the body is stimulated to start making more collagen in response. This extra collagen then works to rebuild and strengthen the many layers of the skin and the connective tissues between them. The result is not only tighter, younger looking skin but could also mean things like reduced acne and smaller pores. It can also help remove some of the redness and scarring caused by previous acne outbreaks.
The entire procedure will take about an hour or less depending on the size of the area that is being worked on. Most people have absolutely no pain so you will not need to be sedated at all. You can get up and go about your daily routine right after the procedure, no down time needed.
Your best results will not be seen right away but rather after several, evenly spaced sessions.
The Benefits of the Procedure
After finding the right person who knows how to laser genesis, your next step is to decide where you want the treatment to start. If you have several areas to work on, you may need to break them up in to several appointment sessions or have all of the various areas worked on during one session. This may depend on the person doing the procedure and how much time they have available.
The benefits can include:
- Tighter, smoother skin
- Lessened wrinkles and a younger appearance
- Smaller pores
- Reduction of current acne outbreaks
- Reduction of skin redness and scarring from previous acne
- Reduction of smaller scars from injuries
The procedure may also help address some of the physical symptoms of common skin conditions like roseacea as well as reducing the appearance of some types of stretch marks.
What to Do After You Get This Procedure
Careful research about what you need to know about laser genesis should also include what you are going to need to do after the procedure has been completed. First, the entire procedure will take between 4-6 sessions spread over the course of months to give you the full benefits. In more severe cases, up to 9 sessions might be needed.
Right after the session ends you may notice some light tingling or your skin may still feel slightly warm. You may have some redness and if you have very sensitive skin, there may be some peeling or some mild irritation. You should not have anything that is even close to pain.
The results that you get are not entirely permanent but can last a much longer time if you are following your post-procedure instructions completely. You will be given a specialized, individual skin care routine that will include how to wash, moisturize and otherwise treat your skin. Products will be suggested and others listed as “forbidden”.
There are other things that you can do to keep your results as long as possible. These things work because they promote the overall good health of your skin. These suggestions include:
- Eat a healthy, well balanced diet
- Avoid all forms of smoking including secondhand smoke
- Get regular exercise
- Get enough sleep
- Drink plenty of fresh water
- Use sunblock the entire year
Everything that you do to improve your health also improves your skin. Repairs are made by your cells during rest. If you aren’t sleeping enough, the repairs are not going to be made. The whole point of this procedure is to stimulate collagen building and repairs. It is important that you give your body the tools that it needs to accomplish the results that you want.
