Laser skin genesis is a process by which laser energy is used to stimulate the growth of newer, healthier skin. In the process, laser skin genesis reduces the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, rosacea, discoloration, and the effects of sun damage. Bella Sana uses the Cutera XEO cosmetic laser system, which includes the Laser Genesis™ handpiece. The Laser Genesis™ handpiece is specifically designed to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles while also treating chronic skin redness. During laser skin genesis works, laser light energy precisely heats specific substances within the skin. This gentle heating process stimulates skin cells to produce collagen. Collagen is the major protein in the body and is found throughout the skin. Collagen gives skin its structure, firmness, and elasticity. Since one of the main consequences of aging and sun-damaged skin is a loss of collagen, laser skin genesis helps create skin that is more youthful and vibrant. Because collagen is also the major protein found in scars, the new collagen stimulated during laser skin genesis helps the skin revise and diminish the look of acne scars and other facial scars. In essence, the skin gets a second chance at healing. Laser skin genesis is virtually painless—there is no need for anesthesia. In fact, some patients find the warming sensation on the skin soothing and relaxing. Laser skin genesis has virtually no side effects, either. People with lighter skin tones or particularly sensitive skin may notice some redness that lasts for a few hours after a treatment. Since there is no need for anesthesia during laser skin genesis, patients can return to their normal activities as soon as the procedure is complete. In fact, the whole process takes less than one hour. The best part about laser skin genesis is that the effects keep increasing after treatment. Most patients typically require about five treatments to receive the maximum benefit. However, but once treatment takes effect, your own stimulated skin cells do the rest of the work by creating new collagen and other skin factors that help your skin look younger and healthier. Most people see their best personal results within 1 to 2 months of starting laser skin genesis treatments.
