    Laser Genesis improves the renewal process of the skin through micro-pulses of laser light that promote collagen regeneration, resulting in a smooth, radiant complexion. It is a popular treatment for our Chicago patients and is ideal for treating minor facial redness and acne scarring. For optimal results, a series of 6 treatments should be scheduled two to four weeks apart. It also treats photo-damage and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

    Before starting Laser Genesis at one of our Chicago medspas, stop using retinoids and prescription topicals 14 days prior to your appointment. Antibiotics should be discontinued 14 days beforehand, as well as any significant sun exposure 30 days prior to each session.

    What to expect from Laser Genesis

    What will your Laser Genesis treatment be like? You may feel a warming sensation on your skin. There may be some mild redness and next-to-no residual heat. Many patients say this treatment is similar to a relaxing facial but with way more benefits!

    FAQs

    How Does Laser Genesis Work?

    Laser energy is delivered to the skin in a series of pulses. The laser energy heats up the skin and helps to stimulate new collagen growth. This can help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, while also decreasing the size of large pores. The laser heats the upper dermis, which is the middle layer of your skin. The process stimulates collagen production, which plumps the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. As your blood vessels constrict, you’ll see less redness and your skin's tone improves overall. This treatment addresses a variety of skin concerns and most patients leave SpaDerma with a noticeably improved skin tone. You know, that SpaDerma glow we love to see!

    Is Laser Genesis right for me?

    We all have skin concerns, and there are different procedures for all our patients to look and feel their best. If you're looking for a procedure that is non-invasive, will improve your skin's surface and vibrance, and is painless with no downtime, then a Laser Genesis procedure might be perfect for you! This treatment is good for adults of all ages who want to reduce redness, improve your skin texture, and leave our spa with a gentle warming glow! Non-invasive skin rejuvenation? Yes please! 

    Make sure to check with your aesthetician regarding your specific skin concerns and they will recommend a treatment plan that is right for you.

    How long does laser Genesis last?

    Laser Genesis results can last for several months, and some patients see results after just one treatment. However, we recommend a series of 6 treatments for optimal results. These treatments should be scheduled two to four weeks apart. Also, you'll experience best results if you have an at-home skin care regimen.

    Does Laser Genesis work on all skin types?

    Because it is a non-invasive procedure, laser genesis is considered safe for all skin types. So whether you're looking for an overall skin rejuvenation, or looking to address problem areas like acne scars, it is safe and effective.

    How long does a Laser Genesis treatment take?

    Many patients are in and out in less than an hour. It depends on the treatment area, of course, but in general, the entire process takes between 30 and 60 minutes.

    Does Laser Genesis really work?

    You may be asking yourself if Laser Genesis is worth the time, money, and effort? Of course it is! (Ok, maybe we’re biased because we LOVE it!) By using a laser to generate heat the skin, Laser Genesis destroys bacteria deep within the skin. It also stimulates collagen production and improves your skin texture. In short, you WILL see noticeable changes after going through a set of treatments with our skilled aestheticians!

    Is Laser Genesis the same as IPL?

    Both are great treatments -- that's why we offer both at SpaDerma! IPL treatments treat red spots from the sun, aging and acne. Laser Genesis will treat acne scarring, stimulate collagen production, and diffuse redness. Combining these two treatments is commonly referred to at SpaDerma as the 2/D Facial. In the 2/D Facial, IPL and Laser Genesis are combined to maximize results when treating redness, broken capillaries, and sun damage! Again, make sure to ask your SpaDerma aesthetician which treatment is best for your skin care routine. 

    Do you offer a skincare consultation?

    Of course! At SpaDerma, we offer new patients a free consultation.
