Laser Genesis

What Is Laser Genesis?

Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment from Cutera® that can improve skin tone concerns, texture irregularities, acne flare ups, and signs of aging. Considered safe for all skin types, Laser Genesis can be performed during a quick, 30-minute procedure and produces little to no pain. This “lunchtime laser” has no associated downtime, offering patients a convenient way to treat a wide range of skin concerns on the face, neck, shoulders, décolletage, and even hands. Additionally, Laser Genesis can be a great complement to surgical procedures, helping to minimize post-operative scarring.

What Can Laser Genesis Treat?

A highly versatile technology, Laser Genesis can be beneficial for patients wanting to treat the following: 

  • Fine lines
  • Uneven texture
  • Scars
  • Large pores
  • Redness, such as rosacea and melasma
  • Active acne
  • Bacteria on the skin

For even better results, you may be recommended Laser Genesis as part of an overall treatment plan that incorporates one or more other procedures as well, such as the Perfect Derma Peel or dermal filler injections, like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®.

What Does the Laser Genesis Procedure Involve?

The Laser Genesis procedure can typically be completed within 30 minutes. Patients should feel no pain from the laser, allowing for a comfortable procedure with no numbing cream or gel needed. You will likely need to wear goggles to protect your eyes, and your hair may be covered as well. To perform the treatment, your aesthetic professional will guide the handheld laser device across your target area. The laser gently heats the upper dermis of your skin, which  stimulates collagen production to improve your overall skin quality.

What Can I Expect After My Laser Genesis Procedure? 

After the Laser Genesis procedure, you can return to your normal routine without the need for any downtime. Minimal side effects are usually experienced, with the most common being redness that should fade over the first few days. As new collagen is produced over the next three to four weeks, you should start to see healthier, smoother skin. A series of Laser Genesis treatments is typically recommended for optimal results.

How Often Should I Get Laser Genesis Treatments? 

To get the best possible results, Laser Genesis is recommended in a series of three treatments, spaced three to four weeks apart. After this initial series, we typically recommend monthly sessions to maintain the positive results. Laser Genesis can be performed year-round for beautiful, glowing skin in every season.

How Much Does the Laser Genesis Treatment Cost?

The cost of a Laser Genesis session typically ranges between $275 and $400, though this can vary based on the location and size of the area being treated. During your consultation, our team can provide you with a personalized quote to help you budget for your Laser Genesis treatment plan.
