Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation
Acne Scars, Skin Tightening, Rosacea, Pore Size, Uneven Texture
This is one of our most popular treatments at Skin & Tonics! Partially because of its versatility in treating many skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, diffuse redness or flushing, large pore size, and uneven texture. This no-downtime laser treatment is often done in a series initially to get the skin back to optimum health. Then an occasional maintenance treatment is the best way to keep your skin healthy and youthful, even as you continue to age.
Why We love this Treatment:
We love Laser Genesis because it is literally EXERCISE FOR THE SKIN! This is a perfect treatment to get your skin back in shape and also used as a maintenance treatment after other more aggressive treatments.
HOW IT WORKS:
The goal of this treatment is to elevate the temperature in the skin past 43 degrees Celsius and maintain that heat for a prolonged period of time. This slow elevation of internal heat, stimulates collagen, which improves overall texture, wrinkles and pore size. This heat also reduces the bacteria known to cause acne, as well as other unwanted surface parasites that are associated with rosacea.
Genesis can be done on any area of skin. Most common on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
Pre treatment tips
Avoid extended sun exposure, tanning or spray tans on the area to be treated for 1 week prior. Facial hair should be closely shaved the morning of treatment.
Post treatment tips
Avoid extended sun exposure for the week post treatment. Avoid extreme heat in the area treated for the following day after treatment.
frequently asked questions
"Does it hurt?"
It feels like warm rain pitter patting on your skin. It can be more intense feeling when treating active acne, but overall is quite comfortable. Some of our patients say they love the way it feels and look forward to it!
“How long until I see results?”
It typically takes 2-3 treatments to start to see good improvements in the overall skin health and texture issues. However, many of our patients with Acne and Rosacea can see an improvement after the very first treatment!
Frequency of Treatment:
Recommended every 4 weeks in the initial series, to get your skin up to optimal health. Then maintenance treatments are most commonly done every 2-4 months.
60-75 minute appointment
No downtime. Slight plumping and pink flushing immediately following treatment for an hour or two.

Laser Genesis is a great way to ease yourself into aesthetic laser treatments with zero downtime. We also love to pair Laser Genesis with other energy based treatments like Titan and Limelight to achieve more 3 dimensional changes in the skin.
