A noninvasive YAG laser procedure used to treat redness, fine lines, and enlarged pores.
Laser Genesis is a procedure that uses laser technology to treat redness, large pores, fine lines rosacea, and acne. It is a comfortable and non-invasive treatment without side effects like bruising, peeling, and skin irritation. Ideal areas for treatment are face, neck, and chest. You can expect to see subtle and progressive results after each treatment. The laser gently heats the upper layer of your skin which stimulates collagen production and promotes the release of proteins which are involved in the healing process. Redness is reduced when the dilated capillaries (small blood vessels) are heated. You will feel a gentle warming of your skin as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth above your skin. Patients describe the procedure as relaxing and therapeutic. You may experience mild redness for a few areas in the treated area. You can expect to return to normal activities immediately, using sunscreen if going outdoors. On average, you will need four to six treatments to achieve the desired results. The overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic. More information regarding the number of treatments and expected results will be provided at your consultation. Treatments are usually two to four weeks apart.
BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS
"I have been battling rosacea for several years! I tried every prescription cream and antibiotic available with little success and spent hundred of dollars on different products hoping to find some miracle in a bottle that would help my rosacea. Nothing seemed to work! Then one day I read an article about Genesis laser being beneficial for the treatment of rosacea. I decided to make a commitment to six treatments at Lumina. To be honest, I was discouraged at first. I remember after my fourth treatment not seeing any differences. I still was red and I still flushed every day. I was going to give up at that point, but I decided to finish my six treatments. Well, I can say that I am glad that I did. After my sixth treatment, a miracle happened! My skin started to look less red and I stopped flushing as much. The burning sensations began to go away and for the first time in years I could wear products on my skin without irritation or breaking out! I continued for several more treatments until my rosacea was under control and now I return for maintenance treatments. The Genesis laser has been life-changing for me! My rosacea is under control and my skin has improved in color and texture. I have not had a flare-up of rosacea in over a year! I am so thankful to the staff at Lumina for all their support and encouragement. Genesis has been the best treatment I have ever done for myself!" - Anonymous
"In my 30’s I developed facial redness and broken capillaries. It was getting worse every year. When I turned 40 I decided to do something about it. I went to a dermatologist and was treated with a topical medication. This procedure inflamed my face and I actually looked worse. I saw an ad for Dr. Carlson and the Laser Genesis treatments she offers, and after only four laser treatments my face was definitely better and by the fifth treatment the broken capillaries were gone. I feel pretty and more confident and I never have to use facial foundation anymore! Yes it’s going to cost you, but it’s less expensive than plastic surgery and it’s not painful. I only wish that I had done this ten years ago!!" - Anonymous
"I came to see Dr. Carlson over five years ago when I was in my early 40's for the treatment of rosacea. I had spent two years trying everything to help with my red blemished skin! I tried prescription creams and prescription medications, which only made it worse. And then spent over a year trying natural remedies, which gave me temporary relief from flare-ups but without permanent success. Dr. Carlson recommended a series of Genesis treatments. I was hesitant at first because it was a big commitment and I had never done a laser treatment before. She recommended six treatments. I finally decided to commit, hoping for a miracle! I came for one treatment every six weeks. And honestly the first three treatments, although they didn't hurt, also seemed to make no difference, I didn't notice much of a change and felt discouraged, but I continued and on treatment number four I noticed I wasn't having the flare-ups as much. By treatment six my skin was less red and my pores were smaller with very few breakouts. At this time I noticeably saw significant improvement with my skin, but I was still slightly red and wanted to continue to see how much more improvement I could get. I followed up with a Genesis treatment once every two months for a year and after a year my skin was clear, bright, hardly red at all, and almost all my flare-ups were gone! It was an absolute miracle!!! After five years I now only have Genesis treatment two to three times a year. And I get compliments on my skin all the time! I highly recommend Genesis Laser for anyone who suffers from redness or rosacea. It has changed my life!" - F.T.
